Question Barrel Connector size, amperage for car dock

Does anybody know the exact size of the inner and outer diameters of the barrel connector for the 5v DC input on the car adapter? Also, the Sirius cigarette lighter adapter is listed at 5v, 2A, is it listed anywhere what the maximum amperage the Stiletto is rated at?

I am trying to figure out if I can source the parts to make my own regulator from radio shack, or if I'll need to order from Mouser. Radio Shack has their adaptaplug line of barrel connectors, but while one was very close, its not exactly right. I'm building a small box for a regulator to take the car voltage to 5v, and two power inputs, one for the switched ACC power, and one for always on power. Going to put a switch on the side of the box to power the stiletto in case I want to charge the battery while the car's off. Also going to have to run the ACC line through a one way diode, or it will tend to supply power to other devices on that same circuit.
