Re: Banana Plug Jacks

The straight banana jacks which normally are just for the banana plugs by the catalogue is the right name. What you have and you are right is called binding posts and by far a lot better. Besides the hole for the wire most of them will also take a ring terminal that you can tighten down on. I use them most of the time as you have better contact. I find with the banana jacks they lose there tension and after you spread them they still lose there tightness. Would be nice if they installed them on power supplies as they would work a lot better. Some of my cables like my foam cutter I solder on the ring terminal and heatshrink. Makes a good connection which is cheaper in the long run and has a better transfer of power.
