    If you know the value I'll calc the size.

    The search I've done seems to indicate between 10 to 15 uH needed and 4 to 6 amps ... probably no more than double wound ..to fit on your boards..

    Another question: I've got some of these quick connect tabs. They're quite loose in the holes, and I'm not sure how I'm going to stabilize them during soldering. Is there another product that has slightly larger pins, or is there a secret to holding these straight while soldering?

    Luca you're months too late, or two weeks early. I ordered more last night. I'll let people know when they arrive. I didnt order huge amounts but there'll be a dozen spare, max two per buyer. Price TBD.
