How much do you know about banana plugs

A plug that is generally installed at both ends of a speaker cable for inserting into a banana socket. The name of this plug comes from its slightly bulged shape. It is very convenient to insert the hole on the front of the multi-purpose socket mentioned above, and a very large contact area can be formed after insertion.

This feature makes it a priority to be used in high-power output equipment to connect speakers and receivers/amplifiers. Sometimes you can see banana plugs divided into two groups, called "dual banana plugs", but not all devices can be used. It originated in Germany after the First World War. The original shape was assembled by a base + an iron nail + a shrapnel. Because the original shrapnel was stamped from a metal sheet into four leaves, it was assembled into the iron nail and turned upside down. A banana peeled into four pieces is named "Banana Plug".

Banana plugs have gradually been applied to industrial equipment, teaching equipment, power testing, radio models, medical equipment, automobile testing, audio equipment and other fields due to their excellent electrical performance, simple assembly method, and low-priced finished products. The contact methods of banana plugs mainly include shrapnel type, pin type, cross groove type, and round type.
