Contrary to popular belief, the number-one cause of shore power failure and fires is not electrical shorting, but rather overheating caused by poor electrical conductivity.These problems are built into the aging designs of common shore power technology. SmartPlug offers a better way.The Problem with "Old School" NEMA ConnectorsCurved pins: Electrical pins' curved shape causes minimum metal-to-metal contact, causing resistance and overheatingConnector body shape: The gap between the body and the inlet allows the connector to move, putting tension on the pins and clipsEase of use: Difficult to find the "L"-shaped pin to twist and engage the plug, especially at nightLocking: No locking feature or plastic locking ring that is prone to stripping or crackingThe SmartPlug Solution30-Amp overheat protection: Oversize power pins and clips ensure efficient transfer of power even with high amperage loadsElectrical pins: Straight pins, not curved, with 20-times more electrical surface area; No twisting requiredBetter metal: Tinned copper wire throughout the full length of the cord set provides superior conductivity and resistance to corrosion; All external metals are 316 stainless steel; electrical pins are nickel-plated brass for maximum connectivityConnector body shape: Sleeve design fits snugly within the inlet, removing all
