Are the E-Flight EC5 connectors compatible with HobbyKing EC5 copies?

Hi:
First post and I can't seem to get answer to this question anywhere,not even from E-Flite!
Are the (real) E-Flite EC5 connectors compatible with the(copies) HobbyKing EC5 connectors are selling?
Will a battery that has an "original" E-Flite EC5 connector, plug into,say an ESC that has the (copy) HobbyKing variety of EC5 connector?
One is about a buck for a pair and the other is about 8 bucks for a pair. They both look alike ,but not sure about the conductivity of whether they will both "work" together electrically.
E-Flite EC5's are rated at 120 amps,not sure about the HK EC5's?Thanks, 6012HD

Most likely yes, that is why they are called the same, so you can use them together, they are just a cheaper alternative. I buy lots from Hobby King.
