Question
Dean's power connectors/knockoffs

Have any differences in performance or fabrication been evident between Dean's power connectors and their Asian imitators?

Thanks, folks.

I performed some informal testing a few months ago and there was a definite measurable difference in performance between a real Deans and a knock-off. This performance difference would not likely be noticeable in a typical application however.

Astro Flight Zero Loss connectors

Thanks for the reply. Sure covered my question well.

Moving right along...has anyone run the Astro Flight connectors through a similar test?

The test was good.
A different, biased 'user' test is that some knock-off Deans are fine and some FIT pretty lousy. I've learned to avoid some but they keep moving around depending on what the retailer actually purchases so it's hard to tell for sure what you are buying.

If you pm me your addy I'll send you a extra set of knockoffs for you to try. I have had both and notice no difference. I now use the cheap ones.
