Default Common place to get powerpole connectors?

Anyone know of a common place to get powerpole connectors like a hardware shop or something? No LHS local and looking to get some for this weekend.

Is there an electronics supplier in town? I believe they know them by another name and there are various sizes available.

I believe you can order these online from MCMaster (or something like that) but I just don't know what they are called. Also, only electronics place we have is pretty much the radio shacks from what I know.

I get them at Electronics Warehouse or Orr-Vac Electronics...but they're local places. Any real electroncs supply shop should have them and they're like .000001% as expensive as at the hobby shop...LOL

They're made by Anderson. There are also some places on Ebay that sell them.

Tower Hobbies was where I first got them, but they're cheaper if you get them at http://www.powerwerx.com

I'm guessing you're looking for the 30 Amp ones, which are the same as the Duratrax branded ones from Tower Hobbies:

I gave them a call but they only carry the deans connectors which I am not too fond of.

I'll give that link a look and see. Though, I am kind of getting used to this hard wiring thing, just if you bash its nice to have a connector instead.
