Connector types

From looking at connectors recently, I ran across this site:

http://www.tjinguytech.com/reviews/rc-connectors

Maybe many of you have seen this before? As a noob to boating but have run a SC truck for a few years (all with Deans connectors)...I thought that this URL might help some others?

Do bullet connectors exist with "shrouds", so that shrink wrap is NOT necessary?

Hi K.

A good knowledge about connectors is the general basis of all battery/esc/motor systems.
Unfortunately a lot of the users donŽt have this knowledge.

Therefore the linked page is interesting and instructive.

Most of the national raceboaters have similar "experts" oder pages -> this is the german version -> CLICK.

Question 2:

yes, they exist - one example here -> CLICK.

You can get them for a wide range of applications and loads.

Hi Roland,

The URL for protected connectors is for 4mm, HK do not seem to have the same for 5.5mm bullets.

Regards,

Kevin

Hello Kevin.

YouŽre right, but you didnŽt mention that you are looking for 5.5mm connectors.

6mm would be possible -> CLICK.

And 5mm would also be possible -> CLICK

Do you need exactly 5.5mm connectors?

My bad....5.5mm were recommended upgrades for an Proboat Impulse 31 boat. My son and I currently use Deans on everything. I'll check out your link. Thanks.

I suppose 6 mm would do...maybe these would also do:

Progressive RC has EC5 connectors with plastic shrouds. See here:

http://www.progressiverc.com/ez-sold...onnectors.html

They are rated at 120A.

You need to know the amp draw of your motor/ESC and make sure your battery can handle the load.

I think you should be fine. Those batteries are rated over 300amps constant. I am surprised they only come with 4mm connector. Usually those come with 5.5mm connectors. But based on the specs it should be fine. Have a good time running the boat..
