Teddy Pardo is perfect if you don't want to work on soldering and stuff.

There is also the Silent Switcher as well.

I tried an iFi iPower 5v with my RPi3B and it would undervolt all the time, so stopped using it.  It is rated for 5V@2.5A, but for some reason the RPi3B was not happy with it. It came with an DC coaxial to microUSB adaptor. 

I have cut apart a microUSB cable and wired it to a 5V DC supply.  I used one of the Ebay LT1083 DC supplies and adjusted it to 5V before connection.  You can replace the stock rectifiers with Schottky style rectifiers and a 6.3VAC to 9VAC transformer for use.  That handles up to 7A of current depending on the PT you choose.

Just a thought.

Tenorman Bill Pierce sent this pic to my brother recently. It's my Dad at my first recording session in '82. He was 44.
Happy Father's Day, Dad!

My oldest and youngest (20 and 16) took me out to lunch today. My middlest is in silicon valley for summer internship.

As you know, Pi 3B has a USB power inlet. I use Canakit 2.5A wall wart, and never had any power problems. I chose that one because it had high current rating 2.5A.

You can convert the DIN to barrel plug by cutting off the DIN plug, measuring the voltage on the conductors inside the cable to find your 5+ and GRD, solder those directly to Switchcraft 760, standard 5.5x2.5mm barrel plug. It fits Switchcraft 712 if you need a female. Rated 12V/5A.

Here's a 5 pin DIN female socket for adapting the Elpac's stock DIN plug: DIN 5 pin female socket.

You can probe the PS output plug to find the 5+ and GRD pins, but don't short the pins when probing! ;) Hold the ground probe to the shell with your thumb while you use both hands to steady the plug and the other probe.

Double check your voltage on the barrel plug before you connect it to Pi, I think wrong voltage will damage it, iirc
