Howdy all. I'm hoping somebody could help me with something. I'm trying to find a reliable source or at least an industry term for the connector in the attached picture. I've searched for board to board connectors, blade-style (that got me the closest), power connectors, power-tool connectors (that got me an image on Amphenol's web site that I couldn't click on so there was no way to order it) I've tried everything I can think of and I've got nothing to show for it. I have occasionally come across them on Amazon but the sellers there are hit or miss and I need something reliable. By that I mean somebody I can come back to 5, 10, or 15 years from now and still be reasonably sure they'll be around. So something like Mouser or Digikey would be ideal. Or manufacturers like Molex, TE Connectivity or a working link at Amphenol.


Any help would be appreciated. Sorry if this has come up before but without knowing the word for these I had no idea what to search for.

I have also been looking for something similar to build battery packs for tools with and the only I have found is to buy replacement BMS boards for tools and de-solder them If Anyone knows where to get these would be greatly appreciated

I had a look for you but couldn't find a name nor a seller.

And that makes me think: it's not so common = no industrial standard (?) = won't be able to find it in 15 years.

But what is that connector for, is it a power connector or is it just a was to block the board?

- If it's a blocking connector (no signal/power) maybe it could it be made with a 3D printer; using a tough plastic and a thicker section;
- If it's a power connector I'd go for something more standard so you can be sure you'll find supplies for many years.

Thanks for the replies!

Those bus bar clips in the digikey link look promising!! I'll see if those fit my project. :)

They're high current connectors. I would have thought they'd be easier to find considering that as best as I can tell, the power tool industry seems to be quickly settling on these connectors being the standard for battery packs.
