Dean's Ultra connectors - where to buy online?

My LHS is out and they take forever to restock anything. Anyone know of a major on-line outlet that carries them? (I need a bunch of other S-400 stuff also)

Thanks

Tower does have them. I think HobbyLobby has them also. I know they have the small Deans connectors.

Tower Hobbies sells them although they are a bit hidden under the name W.S. Deans 2-Pin Ultra Plug.

In addition to the ULTRAs Tower has the small 2, 3, and 4 pin connectors.

If you want the larger pin count connectors contact:

Dean's Ultra

I recently got 2 packages from Dymond with the cost being $2 for 2 pair. A really good price EXCEPT these are not really Deans connectors but imitations, however, they call them Deans. Kind of false advertising but don't know what anyone can do about it. The color of the connector bodies can be black, blue, yellow and maybe something else but not the red that original Deans uses.

Are these connectors bad? Don't know how they compare if you did a test on them but they look pretty much the same but the surface area at the back where you solder the wire on is not as wide.

All the sites mentioned so far appear to be selling original Dean's but in your searching you might run into the knockoffs at a fantastic price. Now you know why that might be. Best thing to remember for anything, if it seems to good to be true, look before you leap.
