Hi guys,

I'm really interested in this thread because I just wanted to let some Dean plugs come over from America. Here in Holland we have nothing else but the Corally plugs, so we thought that the Deans were/ are probably better.

To clear up some thing about the Corally plugs:

This is the standard plug (straight, there's also a twisted laminates version)


This is the tube to mount on a wire


The tube on a battery


This is a plug with which you canot shortcut


This is the smaller variant. I use those in between the speedo and motor.


There is also an 1/18th scale solution:


Nearly everybody here uses these plugs and they work fine for me for some 12 years now. Never had a single problem using them, but I found it rather strange that this isn't a popular product in the US. For as far as I know, Deans is the biggest connector guy over there, isn't it?

I hope I helped you somewhat and I also wonder which of the connector is best for any rc-car application.

Gr,
Mike

You can bend a battery bar for some 90 degrees and place the tube on top of the cell using this bended battery bar.



Replace the wires in the picture with the Corally tubes. They will fit the discharge tray easily now (at least with my old Orion tray they do).

Gr,
Mike

Eagle has the "small" euro plugs that can be soldered at 90degs.
see the Integy website.

Default batt. drawing

Ive got a tc4 so soldering directly to the battery end is not an option. As I posted earlier, I just switched from deans. My batteries look somthing like the attached pic. Works wonderfully to me. I like the smaller euro plugs. Considering replacing my hard wired motor with perhaps a direct solder of euro plugs to the motor tab. Hmmm . . .

the small euro plugs are really small (less than 1/2" long)...they can be directly soldered to the motor tabs. This is extremely helpful if you're running more than 1 class and switching motors all the time.

How much current can those small euro plugs handle? A buddy at the track advised me not to use them for TCs because they couldnt handle the amp draw.

Connectors in the pic are from ebay here
It's a UK supplier but I am sure he will ship worldwide.
The 3.5mm are the ones I use for batts etc (90 deg connection) but also he carries smaller ones which I use for motors.
Powers also do this type of connector.
