Is it easy to solder connector on these?
But still the other one I linked is allowing servos more forward mounted.

very easy to solder .... I have use the 600 or 900 quite a bit on my vibe , vortex, flitz quite a bit to get it very much fwd compare tot he square since the shape actually allow it to good deeper into a typical fuse.

Maybe someone could give me a hint, how to solder the connector cable properly to the round cells.
Never bought Lipo's without installed cables before, so I'm a little bit precarious, how to solder and secure the cable safely against tear-off.

It's written everywhere and there are quite a few warnigs, but still: very, VERY CAREFULLY! Lithium cells are very sensitive. Do not overheat the cell, you can at least damage or destroy it, but it's known that explosions also could happen... Just a heads up

I only started this hobby late summer last year. I wasn't too sure either how to solder connections to LIPO batteries.
I didn't think it was any more difficult than solder an extension lead on a servo wire. Just use some normal thickness wire (not super thin DLG servo wire) and get some connectors (I use JST at the moment) of your choice to crimp on with the correct crimp tool.

It really is not that difficult at all. They are cheap as chips, so just buy some and try.
I might even buy every year new LIPO to avoid having issues with older ones.
Only warning with LIPO's is not to overcharge them or pierce them. Never heard/read a story of LIPO issues when soldering.

One thing is soldering a connector to a pre-soldered wire, a completely other thing is soldering the cable directly to the lipo cell. Just saying, use caution, Lipo's do burn

Greetings from America. Not sure anyone answered your question. This is how I setup those round 1S cells and charge them:

Hope this helps a bit.
