high-current female-to-male connector
Explanation:
as against data connectors, that only carry a small current at typically a few volts (e.g. +1/-1, corresponding to logical 0, 1), and currents of milliamps or less. A power-anything deals with high voltages (a few hundreds to thousands of volts), and high currents of a few amps.
