The PowerHub XT60 is a distribution board for up to 6 XT60 connectors (male or female), with optional power LED and a screw terminal.

XT60 connectors are really practical low-voltage DC power connectors. They are sturdy, have a really good friction fit and don't cost a fortune. They are quite common in the RC world, but I have started using them in many other places, e.g. as a replacement for round DC jacks or car cigarette lighter plugs. They are also frequently used in the DIY powerwall community.

I have a number of devices that have an XT60 plug now, but not as many batteries. So I needed a power strip or some other kind of distribution. Looking around online, most of the stuff seemed rather sketchy, so I designed my own.

The PowerHub XT60 board can take up to 6 XT60 connectors, and you can freely mix and match male & female connectors. So you can do a "traditional" power strip with a single male power input, and up to 5 female power out sockets, or the other way around, e.g. to join multiple DIY powerbanks in parallel, with up to 5 male plugs and a single female plug.

Soldering required.
