Yes, lots of ways to skin this cat, depending on your needs and
resources. Several vendors sell adapters with a "big" grey Power Pole
wired with #12 pairs to four red/black connectors, and it's easy to
build your own. I find #10 to be the largest cable that I can reasonably
fit into the 45A insert, so I run twisted pairs of that.
I've seen statements that some of the Power Pole connector boxes have
undersized circuit traces on the PCB that connects them. I use them only
for accessories that draw relatively low current.
