A new kind of quick connect 12V outlet

Devoman came across an interesting plug. It's called a MagCode. It's a keyed flat plug with magnetic hold, waterproof, 15A, a low depth mounting.

http://www.magcode.com/english/power.html



These would make excellent external speaker jacks, or auxiliary power ports to external lights.

What do you guys think? What would you do with such a plug?

Personally I really don't see much of an advantage over the exsisting technology of providing 12 volt power. Rather than plugging you twist, and over time those contacts will corrode overheat and arc just like the differnt plugs and jacks we have today. I have seen similar contact connectors in the past like finger springs that failed over time just from passing DC current.
Some of the best and greatest ideas never made it in the market place just because the idea was way ahead of it's time. We will have to wait and see how the public excepts it.

I believe those plugs are already in use in some industries. It looks a lot like the plugs on commercial power meters that they use for attaching a laptop to for readings and programing. Maybe johnhd might have some info on this.

those are optical.

what would be wrong with a good old fashiond 1/4 inch phono plug and jack for a set of outside speakers?

with a weatherproof cover of course!
