SAE 2 Pin Surface Mount extended w/ 5 foot 12 AWG

SAE 2 Pin Surface Mount extended w/ 5 foot 12 AWG

As a result of offering some of our pigtail assemblies with “extended” leads, we have confirmed that there is adequate demand.  Therefore, we are moving forward with producing some of our assemblies with extended leads.

For example, offering our SAE 2 Pin Surface Mount pigtail assembly (12″ long cord with 12 AWG leads) “extended” out to 5′ with 48″ of separate 12 AWG leads – precipitated flow of orders prompting manufacture vs. “extension” through soldered joints insulated with heat shrinkable tubing.

Similarly, we are offering the Shrouded SAE 2 Pin 12″ pigtail with 12 AWG “extended” out to 5′.  Thus far, we have seen little interest – but the “shrouded SAE 2 Pin” pigtail has not yet precipitated all that much interest.  Surprisingly, its benefits in terms of “connection protection” don’t yet seem to have been recognized.

This scenario has us looking at other opportunities.  For example, “extending” our SAE 2 Pin 12″ pigtail assemblies with red & black insulated 12 AWG  out to 5′.  It should be noted here that we already offer SAE 2 Pin with 5′ of 12 AWG – both leads with Black insulation.

SAE 2 Pin assemblies with longer leads are no doubt more convenient for some applications.  For applications in which 5′ leads avoids extension by the user, for example.  Clearly, this makes for a cleaner installation in some cases.

Manufacturing to a specific length requires us to consider the market for that specific configuration, but we are equipped and ready to “extend” our assemblies using soldered/heat shrink tubing insulated connections.

SAE 2 Pin Connector Commercial Application

by on Jan.23, 2015, under SAE 2 Pin

Solar Capitalist LLC www.solarcapitalist.com and Bohemian Biker LLC www.bohemianbiker.com are Patriotic American Citizen Owned & Operated Family Business ventures, established in 2008.  We continue to grow Our Product Line in response to Customer desires, and strive to create positive Customer experiences with Our business processes.  This SAE 2 Pin blog is one of the means by which We attempt to capture the attention of those seeking knowledge with respect to, or a Customer oriented source for Top Quality SAE 2 Pin Connectors.

Over the past 7 years, We have grown from a business addressing the needs of individual do-it-yourself Customers, to a business working hand-in-hand with other businesses – making SAE 2 Pin Connectors available in a range of wire gauge and assembly lengths has become Our forte.

We’ve leveraged the needs of businesses seeking large quantities of SAE 2 Pin assemblies, into an opportunity for individuals to obtain SAE 2 Pin assemblies to meet their needs.  Often, the order size of a commercial customer makes production feasible – and thereby precipitates the availability to those requiring even single assemblies.

Customer requirements have also driven Us to widen Our services to include custom assembly to meet application specific needs.  For example, making soldered/heat shrink protected connections.

We are ever vigilant for opportunities to expand Our Product Line, and provide Services that are desired & appreciated by Our Customers.  Often, a product is the culmination of a process involving interaction throughout the development & production processes.

Applications have been encountered that stretch the use of SAE 2 Pin Connectors beyond those of the past, and in some cases – features have been added to facilitate such application.

Engineering background developed during many years spent in a long list of field, residential, commercial and industrial environments have enabled Us to wade through the wide range of specifications that We have encountered.

We have ventured into fields & applications far beyond those We initially set out to address.  This 12 Volt DC Connector is often encountered as a Hopkins Trailer Connector P/N 47965 and sometimes called a 2 pole flat connector and used as a Quick Connect or Disconnect.  What started with motorcycle applications, battery tenders, and portable solar chargers, has transitioned to – what applications are yet to be found for the SAE 2 Pin Connector?

Even more important is an intention toward Customer Focus.  Specific Customer needs & desires are seen as an Opportunity.

Customer inquiries are Always Appreciated, and We remain Ready & Willing to address Yours!

Added SAE 2 Pin – 14 AWG !!!

by on Mar.05, 2012, under SAE 2 Pin

We recently added SAE 2 Pin connector assemblies with 14 AWG leads to our product line !!!

At this point we have a stock of “Power Side” assemblies with 14 AWG pigtail leads, i.e., red insulated conductor leading to the protected “female” side of the SAE 2 Pole connector.

We will be expanding our inventory of this product line from there – 1st to follow will be “Load Side” assemblies.  Then we will move on to assemblies with two black insulated leads (both 12″ pigtails & 5′ whips), which allows the installer to use the assemblies as desired with respect to polarity (Reference: past posts specifically addressing SAE 2 Pin connector polarity).

This line of SAE 2 Pin connectors with 14 AWG leads and whips is part of our continuing efforts to meet an ever wider range of current carrying capabilities.  Although we focus on motorcycle related applications here, there are a vast number of other applications for which our customers wish to use SAE 2 Pin connectors.

Our line of SAE 2 Pin connector assemblies enable many a “do-it-yourself” installer to obtain the wire gauge with the current carrying capacity necessary for his or her specific application.

We appreciate hearing about our customers’ intended applications – especially when we learn of those we hadn’t heard before.  Actually, intended use has often driven our development of an addition to our product line.  We have worked hand-in-hand with several customers in pinpointing the features of an assembly that will ultimately meet the needs of others, as well.

This is our chosen niche – addressing the needs of customers with a desire to utilize the SAE 2 Pin connector in their project.  We have, and will continue to develop our product line on that basis.  Our aim is to do that in a manner that creates ease on the part of our customers – both in terms of making products easily obtained at a reasonable price, and by providing a forum through which technical information can be accessed.

As always, we encourage our readers to comment and ask any questions they may have – chances are, if you have a question, others do, as well.  Therefore, others will benefit from your inquiry, and there lies the beauty of a technical forum such as this.

Our Sweet and Simple 12 Volt Power Port x SAE 2 Pin Connector – A Popular Motorcycle Accessory

by on Feb.26, 2012, under Accessories, Application, SAE 2 Pin

Our 12V Power Port Adapter Assembly allows a Biker to tap into his or her motorcycle battery and charging system’s 12 Volt power while on the go.  This handy adapter assembly is designed to specifically address the needs of the Biker with a motorcycle not outfitted with a faring/dash mounted power port.  It facilitates convenient connection to an installed Battery Tender Fused Quick Connect pigtail, and thereby it allows the Biker to charge handheld electronics, such as a cell phone.

 

Sweet, Simple & Secure – the beauty of this setup is the ability to stow all involved components in an adjacent saddlebag.  In fact,  the design length of our assembly was set on that basis.  We chose SPT-1 cord with 18 AWG leads to minimize thickness –  thereby allowing the ability to close a hard case saddlebag across it without excessively stressing the hinges.  Often using this setup myself, I find it works very well for me.  In the event of traveling rain, obviously this setup would negatively impact the seal and should be avoided.

Not long for reaching 2000 of these assemblies sold, with nothing but positive feedback, continued popularity and sales are certain for this conveniently useful piece of electrical gear.  Many a do-it-yourself type has cobbled together a similar assembly, and it was just a matter of us taking on the manufacture of an optimally designed assembly a little more than 3 years ago.

Cheap insurance at our bargain price of $4.95 + shipping (less than $2.00 for USPS 1st Class shipping here in the US).  One of these adapters could very well save the day in the event yo find yourself in need of a means of communication and your cell phone battery is D-E-A-D.

Here’s a suggestion – consider talking it up with with friends such that you could assemble an order and share the cost of shipping.  Six or eight could still ship via economical USPS 1st Class Mail, 10 or 12 could ship via USPS Priority Flat Rate small box for $5.35.

We were pleased to see our industry partner – Deltran, bring their model to the table.  Outfitted with a 5 foot cord and a tethered cap for the power port socket – this is a great alternative.  A bargain as well at our price of $8.95 + shipping, we carry this model for those desiring its particular features.  This model facilitates the hot set up for a tank bag, or rally bag.

New Blogsite – SAE 2 Pin

by on Feb.10, 2012, under Hello World!, SAE 2 Pin

We recently went live with our new Blogsite – SAE 2 Pin

You can visit this website at www.sae2pin.com

As the name indicates, our newest Blog is acutely focused on the SAE 2 Pin connector.

What differentiates this new blogsite from the Bohemian Biker Blog is that it exclusively addresses the SAE 2 Pin connector, without the Bikes & Biker association.  A review of our SAE 2 Pin blog’s Categories (shown across the top of its posts and pages) will provide quick insight into the differences.

We have long felt that a website of this focus would benefit those with an interest.  Whether that interest be brought on by a planned 12 volt wiring project, or use of SAE 2 Pin outfitted equipment.

Recognizing the importance of understanding inherant issues like polarity, there exists plenty of room for a forum addressing such topics.   Our new blogsite is that forum.  Open to both those wishing to share their knowledge, as well as questions and suggested topics from the less experienced.

We hope you’ll visit our newest website, and comment often !!!

SAE 2 Pin Blems

by on Oct.09, 2011, under Hello World!, SAE 2 Pin

About those SAE 2 Pin connectors available at automotive stores (actually, I have purposely not shown a picture of the version most readily available)…

Since I’ve had occassion to handle significant numbers, I’ve come to realize there are a large percentage that could be classified as “blems”.  I use the term “blems” because the imperfections are cosmetic – usually small openings in the molded connector itself, to the point where the wire insulation can be seen…

Functionally, these “blems” serve their purpose, but as a business specializing in SAE 2 Pin assemblies – I would not sell them without calling them exactly what they are, i.e., “blems”.

My point – buyer be aware… when you buy these connectors off the shelf, you are likely to get a “blem” here and there…  Let’s not forget – this connector is sometimes described as 2 prong, 2 pole, 2 conductor, as well as, flat, trailer, or 12 volt DC.

My followup point – a certain number of blems can be expected when you’re dealing in a product mass produced offshore.  Conversely, when you buy our American made Bohemian Biker LLC – SAE 2 Pin Connectors, you can count on the absence of “blems”, as well as, a higher quality, better fitting, sturdier connector.

Heavy SAE 2 Pin Cable Assemblies

by on Oct.08, 2011, under Application, SAE 2 Pin, Solar

This is a display we constructed showing our Heavy SAE 2 Pin Cable Assemblies designed for handling higher amperages:

These are SAE 2 Pin cables assembled with 12 AWG (left, and left top), and 10 AWG (remainder) with Black insulation – allowing their use regardless of application with respect to polarity (i.e., without conflicting with standard polarity/insulation color practices).

Manufactured here in the USA to our specifications, and using the same sturdy, high quality SAE 2 Pin connectors for which we’ve become known .

In response to the desires communicated by customers – we have been contracting the manufacture of a wider and wider variety of SAE 2 Pin connector assemblies with both 12 AWG and 10 AWG wire.  These assemblies have been developed to meet the needs of the do-it-yourselfer, be they portable solar power enthusiasts, or a Biker.  Certainly there are others – we’ve outfitted customers with projects ranging from equipping a tractor for connection to a 12 volt spray unit, to HAM radio operators wanting a heavy gauge power feed.

Being a Biker myself, I had a burning desire to have a heavier gauge “pigtail” hanging from my ’01 Road King’s battery to support “jumping” the battery without having to remove the seat.  Always the Boy Scout – I am dedicated to “Being Prepared”, and being an Engineer, as well – I am dedicated to coming up with the means.  SAE 2 Pin connectors with 10 AWG pigtails and cables was the answer to my plan (and that of other Bikers, as well) , and so I contracted to have them manufactured.

Now, it was not my intention to to have an integral fuse in this heavy gauge pigtail – which clearly violates protocol.  Thinking in terms of this as a primary component in a “jumper rig” – I didn’t want the added complication (knowing full well, I’d have to pay especially close attention to the absence of a fuse in this pigtail assembly).  I must warn that this is a personal choice and responsibilty one is taking – not only by installing a pigtail without an integral fuse, but by “jumping” a motorcycle, as well.  Understand – there is a chance you might fry something by doing so.  I’ve done some research to educate myself along these lines, and I suggest anyone else do the same.  You have been warned !!!

Additional Blog Posts pertinent to the above products can be found via headings at the top of webpage.  Note – It is very important for anyone attempting to use these assemblies to have a clear understanding of electrical concepts such as “polarity”.  We highly recommend educating oneself along this line.

Possibilities Provided by an SAE 2 Pin Connection

by on Oct.07, 2011, under Hello World!, SAE 2 Pin

If you’re a Biker, check out the possibilities provided by the SAE 2 Pin connection on your Fused Quick Connect “pigtail” (if you have a Deltran Battery Tender, and installed the included assembly on your motorcycle’s battery):

As the saying goes – a picture is worth a thousand words…  Made up this display to get the point across –  there are quite a few assemblies that will couple up to your Fused Quick Connect “pigtail”.  These assemblies address applications ranging from extending reach to facilitating things like adaptation of 12 Volt “cigarette lighter plug” type cell phone chargers, and COAX heated clothing (example: heated gloves) connectors.  In addition, there are butt ended assemblies allowing do-it-yourselfers to install their own accessory circuits for charging such hand held electronics as GPS units and iPods.

So, it can be visualized that the SAE 2 Pin connector on your Deltran Battery Tender “Fused Quick Connect” pigtail provides access to your motorcycle’s battery and charging system 12 volt power.  This, in addition to providing the means to conveniently and effectively maintain and thereby extend the life of your bike’s battery.

The SAE 2 Pin connector is often alternatively called an SAE 2 Prong, SAE 2 Pole, SAE 2 Conductor connector, as well as a “flat” or “trailer” connector.  Generally speaking, it is intended for 12 Volt DC applications.  Assemblies with this connector can often be found in your local automotive store – usually in the form of a 12″ extension.  Widely imported, the quality and durability fits lighter applications.

Although some of the displayed assemblies are imported from abroad, those made for Bohemian Biker LLC (and to our specifications) are manufactured here in the USA !!! The higher quality of these SAE 2 Pin connectors manufactured here in the United States is obvious – they are sturdier, and have greater strain relief.

Additional Blog Posts pertinent to the above products can be found via headings at the top of webpage.  Note – It is very important for anyone attempting to use these assemblies to have a clear understanding of electrical concepts such as “polarity”.  We highly recommend educating oneself along this line.

New Product – SAE 2 Pin w/5 foot Black SPT-1 cord / 16 AWG leads

by on Feb.05, 2011, under SAE 2 Pin

SAE 2 Pin w/ 5' - 16 AWG

 

Recognizing the number of Do-it-Yourselfers adding their own accessory wiring, we’ve decided to move beyond our initial SAE 2 Pin with 11-1/2″ of SPT-1 cord and 18 AWG.

This product proved popular with customers, and having surveyed thier intended applications it seems an SAE 2 Pin with a heavier, higher capacity (16 AWG vs. 18 AWG), and longer length (5 foot vs. 11-1/2″) would be well received.

Black, manufactured here in the U.S.A., and using the same high quality SAE 2 Pin connector !!!
