Default Correct way to wire a duplex?

Hi there,

I installed last week two Shunyata CopperCONN and it works extremely well. Still, I wonder if I had them correctly wired. What I actually did was to wire the two white wire under the same silver screw, and the two black wire under the same gold screw. While browsing the forum, I found some pictures of how to pigtail the SR-Z1 duplexes. There is this jumper wire that I wonder if I should install on my CopperCONN and move each wire under the second screw as pictured. Any though?

Yes, connect it exactly as shown. The jumper ensures that the current does not run through the thin jumper that connects outlet A to outlet B. And connecting the hot and neutral to opposite outlet contacts balances the current flow between both outlets.

Thank you Caelin, much appreciated. According to the pigtailing techniques shown and my actual electrical installation, I came up with this wiring sketch. I know it's not perfect to only have one dedicated line for 3 duplexes but silly me I only installed one when the walls were completely openned. I guess a power conditionner will help also in that area.
