Default Thunder Power "Reaper" 2S Shorty 120C LiPo Battery

Hello,

Can anyone help me understand why the Thunder Power shortly Lipo has 2 connector holes for + and -
All other shorty Lipos have only one connector hole for each side.

Also, what has been your experience with Thunder Power batteries?

Many thanks

To lower the voltage loss over the resistance of the connector. A doubble connectoe is half the resistance.

OK, many thanks for the insight.
Now, excuse my complete ignorance on this matter as I ask a follow up question:

If I were to use a single connector, the battery would still work fine? Just slightly more resistance?
I have never seen a double connector before, either to the ESC or the charger, do you have a link to an image or more animation about it?

Thx

Corally also has batteries with 2 plugs per pole and yes, you can use 1.

I have no vids about the function but do some seach on calculating parallel resistors and you will have all the insight of why.
