Default corrally connectors

corrally connectors

does anyone here use them for battery packs

look like they would save the batteries life not having to use a soldering iron all the time

a few questions about them

1. if you anyone has used them in the past do they fall off while in use
or are they a real pain in the crack to take off

2. do they hold up from normal use or do they get sloppy after a while and coem out to easy


thanks in advance

Default connectors

I've used corrally connectors...
and also long version of the same connector
e-flite also sales a short version connector very similar to corally's.

I prefer the long version...they are just easier to put into the batteries..
I've have never have one come loose or off during a race and I hit walls quite often.

only downside i can think of is when placing into a discharger or equalizer..the connectors kind of make hard to get them in...

Default position

I solder the female connector at a 45degree angle (both sides) facing towards each other like this / - - - - \
and bit more towards the top of the battery...just as a precaution to make sure the connector doesn't touch the chassis, had that happen once not a good thing.

Default ohhh...

ohhh...I see...
i actually don't use a battery bar (L shape) at the end points..i solder the female connector right onto the battery....never had one come off yet and I figure less solder points so less loss in energy transfer...just my opinion of course. Plus to me it looks a bit cleaner.

I use corally connectors, never had a problem yet apart from like previously suggested, its a bit of a squeeze in the discharge tray, and an issue with them touching the chassis.

I like them alot. Easy

That's how I have mine.

best to make sure that the connectors point towards the centre of the car instead of front to back as in a heavy impact there is the possibility that the rear connector can come out (only had this happen a couple of times).

Might put a picture up later.

I use them and this weekend was the first time I had a single issue with them. I don't know if my negative wire got hung up but I'd never had them come off before...

On my 12th scale I have them soldered to 2 bars bent over the pack so that the wires don't stick straight up.

I use them for I did not have much of a choice when I went to the JRXS. It was either those or risk melting my belt everytime I soldered. I like them so much that I converted all my cars over to them and have not had a single issue with them at all. All my packs are setup so the tube lies between the end two cells so that nothing sticks up to touch the chassis. They store better this way as well.

I've been using them for years with no issues or "slop" at all ...mount them straight onto the battery and then solder the male connectors ont the battery wires at a 90 degree angle:

I've been using corrally bars forever and mostly in off-road..no issues, solder like Harsh's pic...If you think they'd ever come out, they won't, just put a screw in them then they can't..the inner connector has a thread on the bottom you can screw into after you insert into larger barrel...

Harsh: ahah! you went back to a battery brace!!! we are taking back the secret handshake.
