This is what I use. I put the smaller ones (the family that used by the 
K3) on every piece of equipment in my shack that runs on 12-14VDC.  I 
use the larger grey plugs at each power source (power supply or 
battery), with a mating grey plug that is wired to multiple cables with 
the smaller plugs.

I have two of these in my station, and they're both full.

Same here -- they seem to have the best prices on Power Pole connectors, 
and have been good to deal with.

I've never uses a crimper on Power Poles.
