How to convert a JST connector to mini-Deans without soldering
As it turns out, the pins on the mini-Deans connector will fit directly into the red JST connector that comes on some batteries. It takes a little effort to get them in there, but they do fit. Just make sure you have the polarity correct. Then you can just put some heatshrink over the joint, and you're done.
I saw this trick mentioned about six months ago here on rcgroups, so this isn't mine, but it seems not too many people know about it. I thought I would document it here in case someone else finds it useful.

Ok, I'll bite "why" would I want to do that? I have never seen a battery or ESC come with micro deans. Most smaller batteries come with JST's so one quick solder job and I'm done!

I always figured the point of switching from JST to micro Dean's was to increase the current capacity/efficiency of the connector. Wouldn't doing this negate that?
Sure could be handy in a pinch, though.
