    Banana Plugs

    For all I know, the above can handle around 10 Amps.
    Or am I wrong ?

    Can any one confirm this for me. :)

    There are *bananas* that are simply folded-over sheet,[ cheep ] and then there are those that are either Bi, or Quad-furcated rod stock...

    I believe the latter to be good for at least 15 amps, if both pin and socket are good and clean...and a decently tight fit.

    Plugs I see thru US distribution are rated 15A.

    However I see no ratings on these knock offs.

    Let me know how they work in case I am temped to get some.

    It will take some time . :D

    I checked ebay and they are cheaper.:eek:
    What do you think of these knockoffs
    I asked the seller about the current capacity.

    Banana plugs and jacks are rated at 15A. I would prefer to use spade connectors instead of plugs for a more secure connection.
