    Hello all
    So, I may like to buy a new bigger SSD (my current one has only 120GB)
    I don't have much money, so I cant afford a big one, so ill probably need to keep the one i got from christmas.
    The problem is, my Power Supply have a limited amount of wire to plug stuff in. And I used the last available wire to plug the ssd i9 got from christmas.
    My question is, are there some kind of splitter for those psu wire available online?
    If so, please tell me what6 I should look for, I don't know what I should be looking for, like term i need to use when searching.
    I also need to know if i can buy the cheapest one or if it's like those cheap 1$ multiplug that can take in fire at anytime.
    thanks

    What power load are you expecting from an SSD? :)

    Anyway, found this one (literally first on bing): https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-PYO2SATA-Power-Splitter-Adapter/dp/B002N2EHVQ
    Startech is probably a generic Chinese brand (as opposed to an actual company) seeing that I own "their" Bluetooth headphones and car wipers, but if you don't trust their cable feel free to solder the extra plugs yourself, you don't need a degree to properly design 5 equal wires :P

    Ye, SATA plugs look like a very deformed L, the short one is data and the large one is power
