Question
Double Wire Lipo

So I'm put some connectors (45A Anderson Powerpoles) on some new lipo's and was going to use 4 connectors for each battery. i.e. 2 for positive and 2 for negative. I'm doing this because my amp draw could peak north of 100A and these are the connectors I have available. This will require me making a small "Y" in the end of each lipo wire. The Lipo's themselves have what I think is 10awg wire and I was planning on using 12awg for the 3-4cm of each arm of the Y that goes into the connectors.
Has anyone ever done anything like this before? Love to hear from you if you have.

You should be fine. The two 12 ga. Will take more load than the one 10 ga. Paralleling two wires to make one is common practice. The only thing that is a concern when doing this is making sure both legs are the same length.

I'd think you'd be better off upgrading to connectors and wire that will handle the load. Sounds like your plan will work, but will just be a bit annoying over time. 10g wire and I think powerpoles does a 100amp? connector.
