FYI - at about 60-70 amps continuous, it's enough to melt off all the fake Dean's connectors. The fake ones may look the same, but they don't perform the same. The real deans connectors and 12 gauge wire gets pretty darn hot at 150 amps, but do not melt.

60-70 amps is also enough to melt the solder off of a standard 4mm connector. The Castle Creations 4mm connectors should be able to handle a lot more.
Would you say then that the castle-style 4mm connectors are preferable to a fake deans?
I've never actually seen a lipo that includes genuine deans connectors.

I'd suggest asking them on their individual threads. That's what I did and got the answer I was looking for very quickly. Thanks ThunderPower!

FYI: IP now has a new 4mm bullet that looks similar to the Castle design, but much longer. May be another interesting choice. Gavin from SpeedzoneUSA says it's an exceptionally tight fit too...

A 5.5mm would be a better alternative
