PowerPole® Modular Connectors Shack Pack
***There are a lot of fake connectors about. We sell only genuine Anderson PowerPole® connectors.***
12 red shells, 12 black shells, 24 contacts
These connectors have quickly become the standard for DC distribution at home and in the field. Their clever design means that they will only mate one way round while each connector is sexless. Brilliant! Powerpole connectors are easy to fit and can be soldered or crimped. They are perfect for use in the shack or portable. Large orders will be sent as a bulk pack.
Don't risk destroying your radio by using crocodile clips or "banana" plugs.
Our Shack Pack consists of 12 red shells, 12 black shells and 24 contacts.

From time to time people ask me for roll pins for PowerPole® connectors. I have never used then and I don't stock them.
Why? Roll pins are NOT RECOMMENDED by the connector manufacturer.
The ARRL discusses them here.
Read what a reviewer says:
"[Roll pins] sound like a great idea until you try them out. The roll pins are so rigid and the plastic housings are so (relatively) flexible that instead of the roll pin compressing, the two housings spread apart slightly to accommodate the pin. This makes the pinned connector pair a little harder to connect to a pair that is not pinned due to the slight spacing mismatch. They also don't feel like they'll stay in place super reliably. If one comes loose, you've got a nice little conductive piece of metal bouncing around near your electrical equipment. That's a recipe for a really bad day if the pin finds it's way into anything with a circuit board. Other than trying one or two out initially, they're all sitting in the bottom of a box somewhere. I've never had problems with connectors coming apart anyways."

Well made product. Easy to build and works as expected.
Need to take care when soldering cable connection or the plugs don’t insert fully.
I use the for all 12 volt power
I use power pole connectors for the 12 volton my telescope rig and for conne tors in my motorhome to avoid the dreaded cigarette lighter socket where possible!
These are decent connectors and work well with the crimp tool. The housings fit together snugly. Very satisfied.
Keith Chambers it would be helpful for the pack to ahave a mixture of 30/15 connectors or 15A sleves
Great quality item, fast delivery and very competitively priced.
Great, sturdy powerpole crimping tool. Exactly what I was looking for to construct my Emergency Communications GoBox.
Assembly is quite straightforward, if you watch the SOTA Beams training video before you start. Seems to work OK. No snags so far.
It's good to know that these are the real thing and not 'cheap' fakes.
I'd recommend getting a crimp tool as well, as soldering the connectors can be a bit fiddly.
