Can I use dean on 8AWG wire on cc160HV

Since most of my batteris are dean connectors on, I wonder if I can use dean on 8awg wire on cc 160hv or should I have to go for EC5?


Thanks in advance

A few people are going to tell you they've run their Deans up well over 100A without any problems, but Deans are really only supposed to be used for about 60A or less to be safe. The EC5 is a nice connector (or plain 5mm bullets) and good upwards of 140A. When I was faced with the issue I went with the EC5's.

As an added bonus, they're a lot easier to solder with 8AWG.
