Here is the link to amian. Just make sure you get the polarized that way the polarity of the battery can not get reversed and cause a meltdown. They have red and black connectors. Here are the red ones.

Polarized version is key. You will never have a lipo meltdown with the polarized micro-deans. They can also be a pain in the ass to pull apart(in a good way).

I agree, but I have seen stranger things

iv used a switch and not used a switch both. lately iv been running one in both buggy and truggy for no reason considering i pull the switch between every heat. with all the wires&regulator w/lipo and hardly no room in reciever box iv been considering running no switch. either way works for me but switches do go bad

I've always used the micro switch that comes installed on the Novak regulators. Never had a problem.
