Suggestion with DC Power jacks

I am designing a board and felt I would take your suggestions. The board I'm designing will be driving 8 seperate board that has 14 WS2812b RGB LED's on each board. So totally the controller board will drive 14x8 = 112 WS2812b LED's.
I've learnt from online sources that approximately these ws2812b led will draw 50mA at max. So by calculating the max current drawn is 5.6A and I also have an ESP32 with some other normal peripherals. So rounding it I thought of using a DC power jack that can tolerate 6A and supply voltage would be 12V.
Can anyone suggest me any plugs or jacks that are widely used and easy for integration? Help would be much appreciated.
What about JST Connectors?
@salmanfaris Does JST have such high power connectors?? It shouldn't be something like header connections. I need it to be like DC barrel connector kind of connectors. And that connector must not heat up even at 6A
@salmanfaris yeah I've got suggestions like these from people but I'm making more professional product which will be implemented at offices and public places. So I need more like DC barrel plug in kind of thing.
How many connectors/terminal do you need? how frequently you need to disconnect and connect plug?
@salmanfaris I would need any connector like a barrel jack. The mating cycle per month is very low, something like 2 times it might be removed and connected. These devices will be powered on most time of the day.
@kowshik1729 Then go with a standard barrel jack, it can handle 6A.
Python Method vs function
Method is called by its name, but it is associated to an object (dependent).
A method is implicitly passed the object on which it is invoked.
It may or may not return any data.
A method can operate on the data (instance variables) that is contained by the corresponding class
Function is block of code that is also called by its name. (independent)
The function can have different parameters or may not have any at all. If any data (parameters) are passed, they are passed explicitly.
It may or may not return any data.
Function does not deal with Class and its instance concept.
I think not all parameters are the same, all according to their respective functions in use, it's just that certain needs and comfort are needed
I need help in programming for my startup project hardware completion
Recently, I got a chance to work work the SeeedStudio T1000 tracker and I made a tracker and data logger with it. It comes with a LoRa module to transmit the data and has an inbuilt temperature and light sensor. The device is very easy to set up and get-started and I can say the experience of switching from different LoRa network servers is very pleasant and straightforward, same for the integration. I chose Ubidots to visualise the data captured.
I also like the mobile application very much, it’s so easy to pair and change the tracker configuration on the go. I love it.
I will experiment more and share my insights here. let me know if you want to know any specific details about the SenseCAP T1000.
It’s live on Kickstarter and you can pledge for $29 for single T1000 tracker, you will get 1 piece T1000 with 3 months of free trial service on the SenseCAP platform. Take a look : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seeed/sensecap-t1000-track-what-you-care-with-no-boundaries
@dipu_varghese Hi, How does it go? Would like to know about the updates or anything I can do to help you.
@zainmuhammed Oh that's cool. Let me also take a look at the stability analysis of a drone and get back to you.
