Default who makes the battery bar post end

I saw a new battery bar for the end of a side by side that incorporates the round post type connector with a flat surface to solder to the battery end. Who makes it?

No - the one I saw had the post connector on the battery end itself, not up on top of the L.

However, this one also looks interesting

I'm pretty sure TOP Racing also has a solder tab/connecter like you are talking about.... I saw it somewhere...

I guess so....

I've used them, and they are fantastic. Make it very easy to get the connector smack bang in the centre of the cell...so much easier to solder than a normal tube.

Won't use any other type now... simply put

That is a great idea!. I may start using connectors again. The big benefit with that is for racing in places where there is no AC power and hence you cannot easily solder. When I start the outdoor season in the parking lot, I will convert my batteries over to this.

Thanks guys - it was the Venom that I saw - and I hear my LHS just got some in. The TOPS look good as well.

After many years of soldering, with the move to lipo soon, it would be nice to have a common connector method.
