Default Biggest connector in the world?

What do you think about this 35 square millimeter pcb connector? It's huge.

That’s ridiculous - were is that current going on a pcb?

I once specified 6 oz copper on a pcb with 0.5" wide trace for an electric water heater control

we used push on spade lugs - read the fine print for specified heatsinking (hence the heavy pcb trace) to limit connector temp rise

There are four brutally big pins on each pole I have made a 300 A pcb so I know what it takes. This should only carry 100 A.
