"Hey, Jar Jar! Stay away from those energy binders. If your hand gets caught in the beam, it's gonna go numb for hours."
Anakin Skywalker to Jar Jar Binks[src]

An energy binder (more commonly known as a power coupling) was a device that coupled two or more podracer engines/turbines via electrical beam. Many of the racing machines used for podraces combined multiple large engines with energy binders. Energy binders prevented engines in the system from naturally straying from one another, which could lead to catastrophic accidents. A notable energy-binder failure was during the Boonta Eve Classic podrace, when Ben Quadinaros' binders failed, sending his engines flying in multiple directions.
