What's Included?
Metal contacts to crimp onto 16 to 20 gauge wire. Sold individually with a minimum purchase quantity of 25. Does not include colored plastic housings (sold separately).

15, 30 & 45 amp Powerpole connectors will mate with each other
The 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts all use the same 1327 series plastic housings. Therefore, they will all connect to each other. The difference between the 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts is the size of the receiving barrel that accepts the various wire sizes.

  • 15 amp contacts are recommended for 20-16 gauge wire
  • 30 amp contacts are recommended for 14-12 gauge wire
  • 45 amp contacts are recommended for 10 gauge wire

Powerpole connectors are both genderless and polarized connectors
Powerpole connectors are genderless, meaning the supply and load connectors are the same. Since there are no male or female parts, all Powerpole connectors mate with themselves.

Powerpole connectors become polarized when the red and black housings slide together via molded-in dovetails on the housings. Connections can be quickly made and remade sightlessly or in the dark.

High current rating, low resistance
The size of the flat contact area is actually the same for all 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts. Powerpole connectors will safely handle higher loads or surges, please read the data sheet for additional information.

The contacts are made of highly conductive silver-plated copper for minimal contact resistance at high currents. The average contact resistance is 600 micro-ohms.

Flat wiping contact system
This system allows for minimal contact resistance at high current. The self-wiping action cleans contact surfaces during connection/disconnection. The contacts are rated at 10,000 no-load connect/disconnect cycles.

Stainless steel spring
Powerpole connectors use a stainless-steel spring which applies 25 lbs. of pressure to hold the silver-plated copper contacts firmly together and maintain constant contact. Other cheaper connectors simply depend upon soft copper that eventually spreads apart and becomes loose.

Customer Reviews
Initial experience -- with #20 wire By
First effort with #20 wire.
After reviewing several YouTube videos I assembled the correct bits.
I used the recommended crimper and easily got 2 perfect crimps. Getting the pins snapped into the plastic sheaths was an exercise in frustration only made possible by the insertion/removal tool.
The videos used #10 wire which made insertion look easy even without the tool.
If the Powerwerx site has good videos that cover how to use the insertion/removal tool I'll apologize and scurry under my rock.
The system is ubiquitous and well conceived so it should be worth it to go through the 'learning curve' with small wires.

Best Price Online By
Powerpoles are a quick and easy way to make reliable electrical connectors, and Powerwerx has the best prices online. The only (minor) issue is that if you are new to Powerpoles, the documentation is a bit thin.
I wrote a pretty detailed tutorial on using Powerpoles, which you can find at the link below.

In response to the other review saying 15 amp contacts rattle (and they do), if you put a piece of heatshrink over the contact where it meets the wire, you can eliminate rattle while also providing strain relief at the joint.

loose fit bugs me By
These work great.  My only beef is that they are kind of a loose fit inside the housings due to their small size.  This does not affect their performance, but a connector that rattles in your hand doesn't inspire confidence.  For probably 100% psychological reasons, I find myself using 30-amp crimps and reducer sleeves (or several folds of the wire) just to get the nice solid-feeling connection even with smaller wires.

Handy for PCB mounts and spares By
After you standardize on PowerPoles, there will always be the updated projects, damaged cords, asset recovery of old gear, ect . . . It's nice to have both 15 and 30A spares on hand, in addition to pins, so you can recycle your housings. The 15A contacts work great on PCB's as well - Just use solid wire to make the custom angle or routing you need. Pin the center of the connector to the board with the same wire, and you're set.
