Product Description

PowerPole connectors (formerly known as Sermos connectors) from Anderson Power Products have been very popular with electric airplanes and sailplanes. They were the first low-resistance connectors - made of silver-plated copper. The secret of their success is the stainless steel leaf spring built into the plastic housing. This spring applies 25 lb of pressure onto the contacts, ensuring good, vibration-proof contact. Contact resistance has been measured at 600 micro-ohms. PowerPoles are genderless, which means any connector can be plugged into any other connector. Electric fliers will have to exercise caution when using a speed controller (however, they are color coded). There is one distinct advantage to these connectors: if you have two packs you can use them separately and still plug them together in series. Also, these connectors link together side-by-side using keys that are molded into the side of the housings. When linked together, they become polarised! PowerPole connectors are very easy to use (we recommend soldering), compact, will handle moderate current, and are insulated but not polarised unless you slide them together in pairs. These are 45 Amp connectors, suitable for wiring up to 13ga. This item includes: 4 black plastic housing, 4 red plastic housings, and 8 pins.

Very handy and easy to use.
John Tucker
Once you align the contact to the small slot it slides into you get a quick and easy positive click as it snaps into place.
Matthew Campbell
It is better to crimp than solder the contacts.

Anderson Power Poles have become *the* standard DC connector used in Amateur Radio in the US, to the point where most emergency organizations specify them to facilitate interoperability. They are strong, reliable, genderless, easy to wire, and easy to reuse. The contacts' ability to handle amperage is limited primarily by the wire size they will accept, i.e., they will safely handle more amps (from surges or whatever) without self-destructing. The contact area is actually the same for the 15, 30, and 45 amp contacts. The contacts are self-wiping and rated to over 100,000 cycles.

The housings slide together in a variety of ways to form connector blocks as needed. The resulting blocks may be left as-is, pinned, cable-tied, glued, or fastened together using special Anderson clips. Most recommend strongly against using pins as they can fall out given enough vibration. Note also that some dealers substitute standard roll pins for the Anderson spiral pins. Anderson's bite into the plastic and hold better, but can still fall out. If you glue, use a drop of superglue between the housings (Anderson's recommendation) or model cement.

It is better to crimp than solder the contacts. While it is perfectly possible to solder the contacts, any solder on the contact face lowers the connect/disconnect cycle rating, as can overheating the contact. Solder can also interfere with the contact to housing fit. Finally, as these connectors are generally used with stranded wire, soldering forms a failure point where the flexible wire meets the stiff, soldered wire and connector. UL requires soldered Power Pole connectors to use a strain relief as a result.

I love these things. They are expensive, but worth it for their versatility. The whole point of these is that they're genderless so you can easily move around components and modules without worrying about changing the gender of the connectors. Also you can build as big a connector as you want because they lock together on all sides and even have many colors (if you order from the manufacturer).
They HOLD TOGETHER WELL IF you secure the insert ALL THE WAY. It's hard to describe this, but the piece you crimp/ solder to the wire has to be inserted into the plastic housing UNTIL YOU HEAR THE CLICK. Otherwise, the leaf spring isn't engaged and the terminal has no strength.
I can't say if these would actually stand up to 45 A continuous without causing a lot of resistance, but I have put them through 20 A continuous and 40 A peak on an electric bike. They never heated up and after using ~50 of them for 4 years, not a single one has failed.
Bottom line, if the setup you're using never changes (i.e. you only remove batteries for recharging or something) then you probably don't need these. If your setup changes (move components from one end to another or reconfigure battery packs for series or parallel) then this is what you want to use.

I am glad I purchased the TRICrimp crimping tool (elsewhere), but I was working with 10 gauge wire AND 14 gauge wire. I found the cheapest price for both "45 amp" and "30 amp" connectors here on Amazon. It took a little to get used to how how a crimped wire goes into the plastic housing, but once I did, everything else went smoothly. Very nifty power connectors.

These electrical connectors snap together and use little pins to keep them from coming apart. I used hot melt glue to secure them instead. They require a round crimper, not the kind that flattens the contact. I used solder.

If you haven't used Power Poles for your 12 volt power connections before, you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality, ergonomics, positive connection of these things. Once you master the art of installing these, they are WORLDS BETTER than using the de facto standard (cigarette lighter plug) for 12 volt accessories. These are smaller, better electrically, and universal as long as one assembles them in the ARES standard configuration.

ordered some power pole connectors for my electric bike, they seem to do their job well, nice connection action, good fast delivery and a decent price...i have been told not to settle for anything but the power pole connectors for dc power, and im happy i got them, makes moving the battery on and off the bike for charging a breeze...

i've been crimping them with a pair of Klein crimper/cutters http://smile.amazon.com/Klein-Tools-Insulated-Non-Insulated-Terminals/dp/B0006M6Y5M/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1397518933&sr=8-5&keywords=klein+cutter+crimper and i am having no problems seating the spade in the housing, just keep it clean, and dont crush it

I used these for my ham radio equipment in my vehicles. These connectors make it really nice to quickly unplug and move stuff around easily or pull equipment out when the top comes off my Jeep. Buy the crimper tool to get a really solid connection. Broke down and purchased one and life is good.
