I think people use direct soldering for the security - one less thing to go wrong.

I will say I have seen plenty of bad solder connections come undone. I have also seen a lot of guys just plain forget to solder the battery in! It is easier to connect a plug track side then it is to solder! Neither is better. It is preference. My point is there are extremely efficient and reliable plugs out there these days and soldering will not give you an advantage.

As nobody gives me free batteries I use corally type tube plugs...if you want them to never come off you can put a screw in them, and you check your solder joint at home to be sure it's perfect.....

I am not sure why people don't notice the end cells being killed by all the soldering every race heat.....all my friends that direct wonder why the end cells have no more runtime as massive IR....I know why
