Just separate your pos and neg plugs from eachother and then plug one pos into the other batteries neg and then connect the remaining pos and neg together for your 8s output. Ive seen it done and work nicely. Also seen the connection point between the batteries used as a spot for an arming switch. Powerpoles also save you money on shrink wrap and solder. Not saying the other connectors arent great too but ive tried them all and just sharing my experience.
PS: get the crimpers. They are worth their weight in gold. I tried using regular crimpers for a while and had no clue what i was missing out on.
+1 on the Power Poles and yes, get the crimpers!
But if you like or prefer soldering, the Power Poles are easy to solder. The crimping is just so easy, clean, and convenient!
And yes, I have used Deans, EC3, EC5, XT60, and Power Pole connectors. For my money the flexibility of the Power Poles can't be beat.
