Not sure about the stacking part, but individually I call them blade connectors.

Yep.
Powerpole.
Just make sure you get the appropriately sized connectors to match what you have / the job you are doing.

I found a couple of YouTube’s about them. Easy to find once I knew what to call them. They seem to be popular among ham radio operators. I need them to re-wire a couple of things on my motor coach.

I think I’ll order these when I get a chance. I only need the small ones for now, although I have used the bigguns before.

I added the second photo for anyone that is curious about what they are.

They are easy to assemble and there is no male or female, they all just fit together. They are common on winches and the big ones for jumper cables on wreckers. I believe Anderson invented them but there are other makers out there.
