Product Description

The most expensive item that you carry with you when going portable is probably your radio. Protect that investment with our Powerpole Easy-Fit Battery Kit.

"I am amazed at how many portable operators connect their equipment up directly to a battery using crocodile clips. This is a recipe for disaster as many radios do not have reverse polarity protection. When you are tired, wet and cold, making a mistake connecting a battery is easy to do. So easy indeed that many SOTA activators have done just that - and written-off their expensive radios. I don't want to have that happen to anyone, hence this Easy-Fit kit. No excuses!" Richard G3CWI

Our Easy-Fit kit protects your equipment in two ways:

  • by using PowerPole connectors, making a mistake with polarity of your battery is a thing of the past
  • fusing your equipment helps to protect the equipment itself and your batteries from damage.

Our Easy Fit Kit consits of:

  • a fused lead that should be connected to the battery
  • two fuses (5 Amp or 25 Amp) - that's one to use and one as a spare.
  • two leads that can be used to connect 12 Volt equipment to the battery supply.

The kit is easy to fit (hence the name). Five minutes with wire strippers and a screwdriver and you will be able to relax knowing that your radio and battery are properly protected.

The Easy-Fit kit is equally as useful in the shack. Once you start using PowerPole connectors you will never go back to crocodile clips. This is a very cheap and effective way to protect your investment in radio equipment!

We recommend the 5 Amp fuse for FT-817 type radios and all radios up to 15 Watts o/p. For higher power radios we recommend the 25 Amp fuse. The Easy-Fit kit is perfect for all battery types.

  1. Powerpole battery kit

    Posted by Gordon MM0GPZ on 22nd May 2014

    This kit is ideal for KX3, FT817 etc for easy fast and accurate connections while /P. I can assure you it is much easier to buy these than to make them yourself.
    Thanks for making these available.

    Have spare power pole connectors to hand for instant use. Especially useful fuse leads for small and high currents.

    very useful for connection. East fit and disconnect but sure to give good contacts


  4. That's more like it!

    Posted by Noel g6eny on 25th Mar 2013

    Great bits of kit that has made life so much easier connecting everything together. No more fiddly connections when hands are cold and stiff and the eyes can't quite see if the connection is really good enough. I had read reviews about how good they were and now I know for myself!


  5. Bits & Pieces

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Feb 2013

    Saves sorting out all the bits and pieces, getting the soldering iron out and a real good idea.
