The "rebellion" is that people are going to larger power systems, and the limits of the Dean's connectors are apparent.
You know I forgot to mention the excellent "grip" of the EC3/EC5/XT60 connectors. Anyway, I think these connectors "are" the thing!
I solved the multi-connector to my watt meter problem by using terminal blocks on the watt meter and other devices. Very handy. The terminal blocks are 30A, 600V, 5/16" spaced, for #8 screw. The terminals are for #8 posts. You can see the EC5, EC3, and Deans charge leads I made. I have these in both male and female varieties, and this lets me hook up any combination of connectors that I might need. If a new connector comes out in the future, wa-la, I have a way of connecting things!
