Phillips' Weather-Tite M2 features a charging assembly with dual-pole plugs that are unbreakable, non-corrosive and completely molded to the electrical cable, the company says. The seal at the front of the plug blocks moisture and contaminants from traveling past the connected union inside the socket, preventing corrosion from developing in the liftgate electrical system. 

Phillips changed the color of the blue Weather-Tite seal to red to identify liftgate charging applications. Assemblies also now feature new cable guard sleeves to enhance strain relief protection at the back of plugs for longer cable life. 

The updated M2 Charge Kit is a premium back-of-cab charging system that includes an 15-foot Weather-Tite M2 cable with a 48-inch lead and a 25-inch Qwik-Change tracker spring kit with Qwik-Clamp for charging cables. Phillips says it's the ideal solution for fast and easy set-up for charging systems. 

The Qwik-Clamp comes pre-installed on the Weather-Tite M2 assembly to eliminate measuring or misplacement during installation, Phillips says, and adds that set-up takes less than two minutes.
