    These are awesome connectors

    For all of you that are wanting a way that you can create a high amperage disconnect for your DC-DC power supplies. I just redid my power supply lines with these powerpole connectors from anderson. They are great, I purchased the 45amp versions but you can get much higher amperage if you need.

    I bought mine directly from anderson

    you can find them here

    now for some pictures of them

    as you can see they slide together so you can make custom connectors, I used them to make the 5v and 12v connections diffrent in my dash so I dont plug something in the wrong way



    here are my 2 opuses connected up with these connectors



    So for anyone thatís looking for a great alternative to crimp connectors I highly recommend these

    oh yeah and thanks to scouse for turning me on to these

    Damn good idea. Nice connectors.

    Don't just take JCDillins reccomendation - they are very very good. I used em on RC cars that destroyed just about any other connector

    Very cool!
    Do any of you know if anyone makes a through-case version of these? I'd like to have my power supply connectors plug into the case, rather than via loose wires....

    (By through-case, I mean that the connector mounts to the case using screws, then the opposite connector is joined via a hole in the case.)

    If you look at the manufacturers site you will see various mounting options - one be the type of thing you are looking for.

    There is also a semi-circle on each connector that forms a full circle for mounting and locking the connectors together.
