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.
No public wish lists :(
