I have @HackWork to thank as well for introducing me to these little doodads.

I got my free samples last year around the same time as E-nut.

Nice stuff.

I wish I had them in my early years. I have not used the lever nuts. Only the push in Wago's.
Every wirenut I twisted in my whole life has been with my hands. Not good.
The industry has improved big time. Evolved.

I liked them, so I ordered a bunch of them.
I especially like them for lighting fixtures (with stranded wires).
I don't feel confident enough to use them on a heavy loaded circuit yet .... I'm just sketchy that way

I got six different ones some for a larger gauge wire.

They make up for their price in speed. Even if they didn't, they are worth it in many situations to save frustration.

Just one example of where they really work well is putting lights up. Whether it be ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, or even lamppost heads. You simply let the wires hang down from the ceiling (or wall, or pole) ready to go, then you put the lever nuts on the ends of the fixture wires. How you hold the light with 1 hand and clip the lever nuts onto the romex wires with the other hand. That's it, you're done. 2 seconds later the light is up. No more trying to hold the light while needing both hands to install wirenuts.

You will find many instances like this in which lever nuts work great.

I watched a video where a guy overloaded a circuit until the plastic on the wago melted off. The metal clamping the wires held true until he physically broke them off. He sent like 800 Amps or something crazy high through them. Satisfied my doubts, anyway.

This new offer that Dennis posted probably comes with 6, 3 of the old models and 3 of the newer ones that do #10.

Gyped.

1- 2 port, 1- 3 port, 1- 4 port.

I liked them though and bought the 100 pack of 2 port ones.

They are also nice for troubleshooting too. They have a test port that you fit your meter lead in without taking the splice apart, if you need to isolate something, you can just unclip a wire, do what you need, and put it back together easily without twisting.

I believe you mean 5-port.

I wish they made a 4-port. I would use it all the time. I'd like it to be stacked, 2 with the levers facing one way and the other 2 with the levers facing the other way. This would be square shaped and a similar size to a typical wirenut and fit nicely into boxes.

Speaking of testing, they work great for when you need to connect and disconnect things during testing or troubleshooting. Such as troubleshooting 3-way switch wiring that the stupid homeowner screwed up.

Yes it is a 5 port.

I like this idea though. It would make a nice compact connector.

The reason I asked about the 4-port is because they do make them, but not for our country. If you look closely, you can see the 32A rating on the side where our's say 20A:
