From this: https://www.hobbywingdirect.com/blo...-connector-type

it's a 4mm HXT connector.

Looks like HXT 4mm Connectors

Good connectors, expensive, the only benefit I have with them is they are pretty narrow vs. EC5's or XT60's, etc.

They are rated around the 40 to 70 amp range.

I hate them connectors. Look closely and you can see that two packs can be connected together.

Think about that on a 12S setup or doing parallel charging. One distraction and an accident waiting to happen.

Yes, I understand your statement. I have a few of these connectors. It's hard to plug them up backwards, the plugs are different sizes. The only benefit is they are narrow if you have a tight spot and you believe your will be disconnecting the wires at a certain point, these are about the best way to go. I also have a few Anderson Plugs, but these work a little better in a tight spot.

Otherwise, I have to admit the EC5's are my go to plug.
