I'm working on changing my DC power connectors and I'm looking for 3 styles
- One suitable for low current applications (example: LED lighting)
- One style suitable for medium current applications (example: amateur radio)
- One style suitable for high current applications (example: high discharge lipo, jumpstarter)

looking for the most popular connectors for these applications

What do you use?

You can get powerpoles in current ratings beyond anything you might need for those applications.

Power Poles

Power Poles

Power Poles


Unless I need a ring terminal or a spade terminal, or something like that, but in those cases I connect to the item with the native terminal application and convert it to a power pole to whatever I need to connect it to.

IE:
(O)====Ring Terminal-------------/wire/------------------------Power Pole--[_____][______]-------------Thing that needs power.
(O)====Ring Terminal-------------/wire/------------------------Power Pole--[_____][______]-------------Thing that needs power.
