    Push in wire connectors (wagos) aluminum

    I was looking at the purple two port aluminum to Cooper wire connectors. But I was curious if a wago push in connector is listed for aluminum conductor?

    Coat with an inhibitor first?

      i'm pretty sure wago's are not approved for the purpose.... the closest thing might be the lever operated wagos.... but i'm pretty sure no....

        I just looked up the Wago lever operated connectors spec sheet on the Wago web site, and the one I looked at was copper only.

        To answer your question for the connector you're looking at, read the spec sheet.

        It's a rare connector that is rated for Al - Al or Al - Cu in small guage conductors.

        Another Al in Minnesota

          Wow those look awesome, way better than the wire-nut type.

            They're carried locally here in the 3-port model. I've used them for auxiliary wiring on my bikes and in vehicles.
