    Power packs

    I came across this question: iyfjtdhrtserg.png

    Is there any significance in the colours of a DC/AC terminal on a power pack? (ie 2 colours differentiating positive and negative terminals for DC whereas the AC terminals only have a single colour for both) power pack.jpg

    No significance AFAIK, just convention.

    There is significance when it comes to the colours of the wire insulation itself, but not the terminals of a power supply.
