What are Wago 221 connectors?
Our Wago 221 series of wire connectors with levers are designed for quickly and easily connecting wires. Unlike wire nuts, which require twisting the wires together by hand which can be time-consuming, Wago connectors allow for a fast and secure connection with just one hand. Each conductor is individually secured using spring-cage technology for reliable results.
Types of Wago 221 lever connectors
The Wago 221 Compact splicing connectors are designed to connect multiple wires together, and are available in 2, 3 and 5-way variants. These multi-wire lever connectors accept all the conductors on one side and are useful for electrical distribution and junction boxes. Wago splicing connectors are recommended for any electrical lighting installation.
The Wago 221 Inline splicing connectors use the exact same spring-cage connection technology as the multi-wire Compact connectors, but are designed to only connect two conductors in-line. These inline lever-nuts are useful for extending a cable, connecting two different types of cable, or connecting to a power supply with a molded cable. The Wago inline connectors can also be neatly mounted on an optional carrier block for multi-core cable connections.

Advantages of Wago 221 lever-nuts
When we talk Wago vs Wire Nut, it is obvious that the Wago 221 connectors are the best wire connector solution for sale. Because of this, Wago 221 connectors are becoming increasingly popular in the electrical industry as an alternative to traditional wire nuts. These connectors offer several advantages over wire nuts, including ease of use, reliability, and improved safety. Unlike wire nuts, which require twisting the wires together by hand which is time-consuming, Wago connectors allow for a fast and secure connection with just one hand. Each wire is quickly and securely inserted into its own connection point, allowing you to easily connect and disconnect individual wires. The spring-cage connection technology used in Wago lever connectors provides a secure and stable connection that won't loosen over time and the transparent housing allows for easy inspection, reducing the risk of electrical faults. These advantages make Wago lever connectors the best alternative to wire nuts that you can buy.
If you compare Wago lever-nuts to push-in wire connectors, you will again find definite advantages in the Wago 221 connectors. Firstly, the Wago lever connectors are easy to reuse. Simply lift the lever and remove the old conduct, then insert the new conductor and close the lever - no tools required, and no damage to the connector from. Secondly, the Wago 221 series connectors are compatible with all wire types including fine stranded wire, stranded wire and solid core wire whereas push wire connectors only work with solid core or heavy stranded wire. Using fine stranded wire in a push-in connector means you need to use wire end ferrules, adding work and another potential point for mistakes.
Advantages of Wago vs Wire Nuts:
- No need to twist conductors together
- Easy maintenance to electrical circuits
- Reliably connects a mix of wire types - fine stranded, stranded, and solid core
- Avoids galvanic action between different conductor materials
- Easy to remove or add a single wire at a junction point
- Easy visual inspection and convenient test point
Advantages of Wago vs Push-in connectors:
- Works well with all wire types, including fine stranded - no ferrules required
- Easy maintenance to electrical circuits
- Easy to remove a conductor without tools
- Avoids connector and wire damage from forcing a wire out of a cavity
- Easy visual inspection and electrical test point
