What is a good choice for a connector that's not a Dean brand? I feel Dean's are good but way over priced. I know we are talking about a few bucks here but I feelwe are being gouged.

It is worth it IMO to get good connectors. When the cheapies fail in flight and cost you 100 times more than a good connector wouold, you will soon realize it's value.....Ron

I'm not looking for cheap when we talk about the quality, I'm looking for a good low cost solution. I know this is a petty issue of only a dollar but I look at that connector and I don't see it costing near that amount. A four pack of female connectors should not cost 5 bucks.

I'm just ranting on about the costs, I'm still using the over priced Dean's today. They must not have a copyright on them because I've seen crappy knock-off's. Maybe on that note I need to source a company to make them and sell them. We can call them John's connectors.

Alternate Connector

I am slowly switching all of my equipment to use the EC3 (up to 3 cell packs) and EC 5's for anything over 3s....
I find them a lot easier to install on the heavier guage wires and also a lot easier to plug in and take apart..(a plus as we get a bit older!!!:rolleyes

Just a thought...... Stan
