Cheap connectors

#1

Post by teedoubleudee » Sun Jun 30, 2019 12:15 pm

Just found these on my favourite Chinese site. I know many folk on here have a fear of soldering under the baseboard so these may be your salvation. Also useful for quick connection when testing circuits. Ridiculously cheap and plenty of 5 star reviews. In my experience stuff from Banggood generally arrives in 2 to 3 weeks.

Thanks I’ll have a look.


Edit. Found it, they are quite chunky, could be very useful.

The do look like the Wago 222. There is a newer version [221] which are the dearer ones. R-

Chinese Wago look alike counterfeits.. Fine for MR use, but I would think twice for use on UK mains power. :o

I have no intention of anything more than 12-24v going through them so think they will be fine. I did wonder about them for 240v but as I don't foresee a need for electrocuting myself or anyone who ventures into the 'train room' there is no danger of 240v being connected :mrgreen:
