I once heared one of my friends at my local track ( which no longer exists) saying that the Deans are good for children. He saw it in my car, but I really did not care about what he said, actually.
He uses the 4mm bullet type connectors, since they look cool and all, but to tell the truth, they might become one fatal unit for your controller and batteries if you accidentally connect them in reverse.
The Deans would never make you reverse them at all.


The name is Alawi. You can call me Al.
Nice to meet you!

It's obviously a no-Brianer..


Go4gold, arh, well, loser..

Is it a matter of low selfesteem or self-knowledge? LOL
in fact, the power-pole plugs are rather neat! i looked into them some time back, when Leroy pointed me to them, and i must say, i think they are more ideal for us than deans.

Couldn't you put the male on one end of the batt and the female on the other end? That way, they still can only be plugged in one way...

that's how i used mine, you only need to look at your plugs as pairs, coming from your batteries. You can easily put them in series, which normally is the goal.

The powerpoles are very nice. They are a clamp-on, so you can easily clamp in an extra wire for the ubec. I think i would put flux on the wire before putting them into the powerpoles, clamp them, and add a bit of tin.

You can't forget to put the socket on them either, you put the socket on from the side of the plug, not from the side of the wire.

The problem would still exist. Not as dangerous as the first form, but there is a chance they might get short, especially when you solder four of them in a Hi-Voltage controller with four leads.

Self knowledge Neat as in tidy or like a 5 year old kid neat?
If you can't poke fun at yourself then who can you poke fun of?

Accually the power poles can slide together to make a single connection. It will have to wires and two connectors as one. Or more for that matter. For amp holding on the power pole. I seen 16 cells short on on a chassis. The first and the last on to. It melted the power pole connector together between them. The tops of the batteries melted off to. So I think they can take some serious amp draw. I think they are easier than the deans to plug up as well.
How has your testing been with them rene? I don't use deans no more. The power poles are alot cheaper to use. I can daisy chain many batteries with no need for other wires.


Peace!
