What is a Powerpole "Set"?
Anderson Power Products Powerpole connectors are available bagged in popular sized sets with volume pricing. A "Set" includes all the parts needed for a single connector. For the 15, 30 & 45 amp Powerpole connectors; a set includes (1) red housing, (1) black housing, (2) contacts and (1) roll pin.

We offer bagged quantities of 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 & 500 sets. A 10 set bag contains 10 connectors, the same as 5 mated connector pairs, or exactly (10) red housings, (10) black housings, (20) contacts and (10) roll pins.

15, 30 & 45 amp Powerpole connectors will mate with each other
The 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts all use the same housing. Therefore, they all connect to each other. The size of the flat contact area is actually the same for all contacts. The only difference between the 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts is the size of the receiving barrel that accepts the wire.

  • 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.

Unassembled vs. Permanently Bonded
Unassembled sets can be assembled in any configuration. As two housings slide together via molded-in dovetails, two half rounds align to form a channel that accepts a slotted roll pin. This prevents the housings from sliding apart. The roll pin is a compression fit and will not fall out in operation.

Powerwerx now offers Red/Black Powerpole sets that have been ultrasonically welded together which creates a permanent bond between the red and black housings. This can save assembly time, guarantee correct configuration, eliminate the need for a roll pin and enable the use of Powerpole accessories such as retaining clips or block-lok clamps.

The Anderson Powerpole singlepole connector family
The Powerpole family spans a range of sizes covering up to 180 amps and accepting a different gauges of wire from 20 thru 1/0 AWG. Here is a size comparison diagram for the 15/30/45, 75, 120, 180 amp Powerpole Housings:

High current rating, low resistance
The size of the wire a Powerpole contact will accept is the primary limitation of their ability to carry a load. 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 PP45 data sheet for additional information.

The contacts are made of highly conductive tin-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. When two pairs are mated together, it takes approximately 3 pounds of tension to pull them apart.

Stainless steel spring
Good connectors should not loose contact tension under use or vibration. Powerpole connectors use a stainless steel spring which applies 25 lbs. of pressure to hold the tin-plated copper contacts firmly together and maintain constant contact. This is ideal for frequent connect/disconnect cycles. Other cheaper connectors simply depend upon soft copper that eventually spreads apart and becomes loose.

Durable polycarbonate housing
The Powerpole insulated housings use a durable, high impact-resistant, high temperature polycarbonate plastic with a UL94 V-0 flammability rating. The connector design allows air to flow through the housing, assisting in cooling.

Powerpole housings have a modular design that allows for multi-pole (multi-conductor) configurations. Housings slide together via molded-in dovetails.

Customer Reviews
45amp Connectors VK2TEQ Rstralia By
Originally bought the 30 amp Powerpoles, with Crimpers. LIKE. Except ICOM have a tendency to use THICK wire. So I used the 45 amp Powerpoles. LIKE. A rush job, so I bought from local supplier. DISLIKE. Next purchase will be from PowerWerx, with extra Crimpers. The Crimper works well, very well. The 30/45 amp Powerpole is the official connector for WICEN.

Power Poles By
I have been using powerpoles for over 5 years on ALL of my RC Electric Airplanes without a single failure......period! I can put the powerpole on five batteries before I can solder one Deans.....and know there is no chance of a "Cold" solder joint! Every time I show the "PowerPoles" to a flier they convert..........thank you Anderson!

An excellent product By
Have been using these connectors on a 600 R/C
helicopter, in place of T Type (Deans connectors)
using 6S LiPo batteries. These connectors are a pleaseue to use. have put up to 90amps peak through 45 amp powerpoles with no problems.
there is also no spark visible when connecting the battery to the speed control. Highly recommended to R/C addicts. Get the proper crimper, its worth the money, much better than soldering the connectors to 10 guage wire.

Easy operation By
Converted all my ham gear and inverters to powerpole. Started using 30 amp, but now use mostly 45 amp.
Have 350 amp on alternator for large loads.
Great product.

I just upgraded to Lipo batteries for my e-revo.  the 2s 5000mah batteries had 10ga wire on them, these worked perfect!

My dream connectors... By
I use these connectors on everything I have that needs 12 volt DC. Especially on equipment in my Ham Shack that plugs into a PS-6AA - Red-Dee-2 In Line 6-Way Powerpole Splitter under my desk in my shack. Like all the products here they are top notch high quality and work easily, reliably and are safer than all the ancient connectors we've all used in the past. Way to go Powerwerx.com! :-)
