If you flatten out the solder post it should still fit...Otherwise you might have to switch to bullet style plugs...OR worse....Re-solder your packs...

Well I have packs like this: I have the sixth and seventh battery bar bent as if you would be direct soldering the pack. Then I have a bullet plug soldered there. I hope there will be room underneath the pack and between the charger's tray for that bar and plug.

Why bother...
Just take the bullet and solder it directly to the cell....
Looks cleaner and will fit perfect in the ICC....

Because the way I have it fits better for me, plus if the plugs are directly soldered to the cells they won't fit in my battery case (won't shut).

Oh whatever, I'll just bust out the dremel, lol.

Or you could just unsolder the bent bars and solder them so they stick up on the other side of the pack.... if you know what I mean.

If ya flip the bars on the ends which will flip the pack in your car then ya gotta rewire your speedo if the wires aren't long enough. Maybe the dremel is the way to go!

Yeah, I don't care about the labels much anyways, it's that my ESC is wired just perfectly to fit this way.

Funny........
That is why KO VFS1 Pro Comp doesn't come soldered....why would they allow us to solder the wires on if it was going to a major issue...
I resolder my QC2 all the time as well....it worked great even after resoldering...
So please don't get mad....Just another option insted of hacking up a perfectly good charger instead of making a $2.99 + a little time change to your speedo...
Sheesh...Not like I am asking you to change the FETs inside...
Oh and the date of mid December was what I was told...
Maybe it just hasn't been shipped to Horizon Yet for distribution...
There is also a great demand for these in Europe so since they are based in Europe most likely they will get the first couple of batches...Make sence to me...Be Patient...It will come soon...

yes to be soldered once or twice, but not 12 times a year! seems like you are exaggerating again
