Learn about the SmartPlug

The Basics




Why do I need it?

Contrary to popular belief, the #1 cause of shore power failure is not electrical shorting, but overheating due to poor electrical conductivity. Older plug designs are notorious for burning out as a result of loose connections and corrosion. SmartPlug's many features greatly increase conductivity and reduce the possibility of overheating.

How the SmartPlug works



Protect your *boat NOW...even if your marina hasn't yet upgraded!

No need to wait for your marina to upgrade, or worry about carrying multiple cords or adapters. The SmartPlug Inlet and Connector kit gives you everything you need. Just replace the *boatside end of your existing shore power cord, install the new inlet on your *boat and your end of the shore power problem is taken care of.



How easy is installation...really?

Super easy. See the installation pages for full details, but here's the skinny: You first shut off all power, cut the old connector away, strip back the wires and screw them into the SmartPlug connector. For the *boatside inlet just unscrew the 4 mounting screws, disconnect the wires, connect the wires to the new inlet and reinstall right back in the same hole with the same 4 screws.



*boatside / *boat - can refer to any supply side that may require power.
