Hi,

I've read Deans brand T-connectors are better than the generic type being sold. I would like to know if this is true.

Thanks.

David

Ok,

I haven't been long enough in the electric world to see that by myself, but anyway I'm buying Deans brand connectors to be safe. Well, I'm glad I did.

Personally the deans I have are way loose now and the XTs are still very tight fitting. I've had good luck with the XT clones anyway ...

EC3 or EC5 are both hands down the best connectors out there right now.

Yes. definitely true.

With the generics the spring tab on the positive lead of the male connector can fold back and short circuit the battery...

What about Anderson Power Poles? Seem to be popular with higher volts/amps among some people - better/worse than EC's or XT's?

There is nothing more to know. They are potential hazards, as I described above.

Don't use them.

No, I'm referring to the T-connectors that have "XTI" stamped on them; the ones mentioned by DarkSide41 in the 5th post of this topic.

They also have ridges on them to facilitate disconnection.

Don't get the ones from hk. Not sure if they are the XTs or not. I threw all mine in the garbage. They had the ridges...

I've had great luck with DEANS except for on my T-Rex 700 and all that current draw. Switched to bullet connectors which work FANTASTIC. I'm planning to make the move to EC5s as it seems to be the CHOICE connector right now with the least amount of issues

I've always liked the XTI connectors from HK.

My new favorite are the XT60 like wickedclown posted. They fit together very tight and are easy to solder.
