may i ask why people are choosing corally plugs over deans plugs? is there more of a performance advantage from corally plugs compared to deans?

i use deans plugs myself.

why corally:
1. easier to connect charger to battery directly to feamale connections
2. shorter power cables and no worries of popping out
3. less crap on the battery (no hanging wires)

Default corralys

I myself prefer the corraly, however as you are a begginer i reccoment u go for the deans as it will be easier for you and there is way less resistance than the tamiya connecter,
Im sure this link wil help you out

I use deans even on my side by side packs, corally's are WAY to easy to plug into the wrong side (+ or - ) in the race to get your car ready before a heat.

Just my 2c

i agree, but if your hands grow out of the wrong place, then you shouldn't be in modeling at all

and you're so afraid of that, use different connectors on the battery, i mean like male on +, and female on -, vice versa on esc power wires.

If you properly install the connectors (whatever you choose) and take your time making sure to get good solder joints you will have less resistance than a quick bad solder joint directly onto a battery. You won't notice a difference at all. The length of wire between our battery esc and motor is likely to have greater resistance.

Exe: How do you solider a male corally plug to a battery without it pointing straight out?? I've never seen that done before.

i don't remember now, i think i saw somewhere the resistance tables for different kinds of connectors, there is a really small difference between dean's and corally, corally's lower i think.

if i'm not mistakin, 0.19 and 0.21R or

same like soldering female tube, you just position with a small degree so it wouldn't stand completely vertical.

anyway, i don't like the hassle, so i solder 2 females to the battery and mark +- with a marker on the top of the battery.

missed polarity only once novak's ss5800 esc and battery got hot in a few secs, reconnected and that's it

Just a note,,,,,,,,, The difference between the Corally (good) and the Deans (also and equally as good) connectors Might be noticable to a World's class champion, but quite frankly, you and I will never notice the difference! Sorry to burst your ego bubble, but truth is truth wheather you believe it or not, it is still truth! Having said all this, just get what works for you ( I have chosen Deans and used them since they first came out and am still happy with them) No chance of them shorting out against anything was my primary concern.
