I would go with clippard solenoid without power cord. If you have an old computer power supply cord laying around, you can connect it to the solenoid in 5 minutes and it will save you some money. Clippard solenoids are hobby standards and I haven't read any bad stories using them yet.

i have couple of computer power cores, but i have no idea how to connect them. Do you know where i can find more information about it? thanks!
Well, if you have no knowledge of connecting power cords, it will be better for you to order one with power cord. I didn't take any pictures when I assembled mine, sorry.

I agree with smog; if you don't have any knowledge about electricity, I would not attempt to connect a power cord to the solenoid myself (though it isn't all that difficult, a shoddy job can be dangerous!)

Thanks guys, tired of waiting from rex and sumo, finally i decided to order a solenoid from clippard MME-2QDS-D110. I email clippard for a instruction manual, so I will able to connect the din/wires.

I cut a computer cable today, it has black, white, and neutral
black = ground
white = hot
green = neutral
are these right? wish i had a volt meter lol :)

We got back to you that same day....but if I have it straight, you were looking for a 1/4" NPT Clippard solenoid. Since the 1/8" is the one that is pretty much standard use, that is the one we have on hand! ;)
