DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOLD-PLATED AND NON GOLD-PLATED CONNECTORS

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOLD-PLATED AND NON GOLD-PLATED CONNECTORS:-

¤ We always see gold-plated  & non gold-plated connectors.But when we go to a shop to buy a connector then we are getting into trouble.

¤ Of course  Gold plated  is best because we always see that when a connector is gold-plated  then it is highlighted on its box.The sales man also say that it is premium in quality for being gold plated.

¤ But Why???? Why we should buy the gold-plated connector for salesmen's word??? We should know the reason of better quality of connectors being gold-plated.

¤ In conductivity table Gold is at 3rd position.
connectivity table

¤ Copper is used in wires normally.But the connecting points are in outside.It is not covered with plastic like wires,it is exposed in air.So it has many chances to be damaged. The normal non gold-plated connectors can be oxidised in oxygen, air or moisture etc.But the gold is a metal that does not do any reaction in air like other metals.So in premium quality of connectors the connecting points are used gold-plated .

¤ Best thing of Gold plated connectors :-
    If you use a gold-plated audio jack then a creecky sound is not heard after a longtime listening. The bonding of connectivity will be good using a gold-plated connector.
