Personally I use deans and convert anything I have to deans for the sake of simplicity. I'm probably going to rethink that and go with something a bit easier to remove.

I usually lay my plug flat on my work table I tend not to clamp it (I have tried with little success to solder a clamped deans and for me clamping is more of a hassle). I hit the connector with the solder tip for a few seconds to get the lead hot enough to hold solder, then I drop a bit of solder on the connector (called tinning). I then do the opposite connector as well as the wire leads that will attach to them NOTE: IF THIS IS A LIPO I NEVER EVER NEVER CUT OFF BOTH WIRES, you run the risk of shorting out the pack. ALWAYS DO ONE WIRE WHILE THE SECOND IS WRAPPED WITH ELECTRICAL TAPE TO PREVENT SHORTS
