It's not hard. You just have to open your eyes.
Denial's not just a river in Egypt.
To re-use an old racers' adage... There's two kinds of people who use bullet plugs. Those who have
connected them backwards, and those who will
connect them backwards. You'll get your turn someday.
That said, I still use bullets. It's just a lot cleaner, particularly because of the balance wire on dean's packs. When I ran Schumacher, I did it because it's a a few grams lighter, but now it's just a question of tidy wiring.
I've only plugged in backwards probably 2-3 times, and every time it was due to trying to use batteries that had the opposite plug orientation to what I was used to, and I was distracted just at the moment I was plugging in the batteries. I've also loaned a battery to someone else and watched as they immediately plugged the wires in backwards.
