Have 2 and work fine  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have a couple of these in my go kit and use them with my portable radio. work fine no problems. I have power poles on all my rigs and have had for 10+ years with no problems. i use the correct tool for crimps and things work fine. A "BUTT" splice cant be disconnected so it is worthless in a portable use. Do it right and the PP are fine.

Power Poles Stink!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Power Poles should be called intermitt poles. What a ripoff. A butt connector is 10 cents and does not fall apart.

Very convenient  Time owned: more than 12 months
This small adapter allows power distribution in a remote mobile installation, without the need to mount a West Mountain RigRunner in the vehicle. 3.5 years ago, I ran 10ft of 10AWG power cable to the trunk, terminated it with the standard Anderson PowerPole connector pair, and then used this adapter to connect to my Icom mobile radio. Very convenient!

However, a month ago, when the weather started to get warm, I started to experience radio shutdown after the vehicle had been parked in the sun for a few hours. Of course I initially suspected the radio. To make a long story short (documented on the Yahoo! IC-2820H forum), after considerable trouble-shooting and testing (intermittent failures are like that), I isolated the problem to the PS-4T+. I took apart the PS-4T+, slightly bent/crimped the female blade connectors in the T-connector to make a tighter fit, reassembled the unit, and replaced it back into the power path. Obviously, the electrical fit was now much tighter to the radio's power connector. Since then, I have not seen the problem reappear.
