These connectors are made from high-temp nylon with gold-plated spring pins or sockets molded in. The shape of this generic XT60 prevents reverse polarity, and when plugged in the connection is super-solid. Perfect for applications up to 65A continuous draw. Sold in pairs of 1 male and 1 female connector.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

Look no further, this is the best power connector on the planet, bar none!!!
For anything below 42 volts that needs a reliable connection, especially when you have low current at startup (processor boot, no motors running just yet), you need a gold plated connector. The 4 point pressure system insures robust, redundant, low ohmic contact for this very thing.
The high current capability insures great performance once the motors kick in!
I’ve switched over to these 100% on all my projects after trouble with other connectors like the Deans, Andersons, etc.
