  • I’m not entirely sure if these are able to be ordered, but is there any chance you could carry XT60 connectors? They work so well, and are so easy to solder. Please excuse me if this isn’t the correct place to post this. Feel free to move it (or erase it) if that is the case.

  • Warning! These are NOT Deans brand connectors! They are counterfeit/knockoffs. I ordered a bunch of these and they are clearly not the same as the real Deans connectors I have. The blades are rougher, the gold color is much lighter (usually indicates less gold in the mix) and the springs aren’t aligned properly. The force of the springs is weaker. Pulling these apart is a lot easier than the real Deans which can mean a weaker electrical connection.

    I am quite surprised and disappointed that Sparkfun, a company I have always thought supplied quality products, would do this.

    Other companies sell these counterfeit/knockoffs too but the are called “T” connectors or “Deans compatible” so you know you are not buying the real thing.

  • These are great little connectors. I used them to replace the wimpy connectors on some of my larger LiPoly batteries. They don’t come apart easily (they can actually be really hard to separate) and they carry huge amounts of current. Who could ask for more?

    A few tips with these: 1) Use flux (as in, actual flux, not just rosin core solder). The soldering contacts on deans connectors are exposed to air for extended periods of time and have oxidized making them a little difficult to solder to. 2) Use an adjustable temp soldering iron on medium high heat. You’ve got to heat up a relatively good sized chunk of metal in order to get good solder connection. 3) If you have it, use silver solder. It isn’t absolutely necessary, but it will make soldering to these a little bit easier, you’ll have a more reliable connection, and you will have less resistance in your solder joint (which is important for high current applications). 4) Cut your heat shrink perfectly square on the ends. Otherwise, you are going to have exposed conductor that could short circuit accidentally later.
