Default traxxas connectors vs. Deans

Right now I'm using all traxxas connectors but would it be worth it to make a switch? What are the pro's and cons of both connector styles?

Deans are smaller.

they serve the same purpose, and are nearly the same price...

for me, traxxxas are larger and easier to hold on to connect/disconnect

deans are a bit of a pain to solder, especially with larger gage wire. That said, I own deans, have used traxxas, and they both work equally well. If you already have traxxas, there's no need to switch. Money/time better spent on other things.

I have thought about this myself, but the only reason I think I would switch is because a lot of my friends use Deans, and if I needed a battery, I could use one of theirs. That said I could make my own adapter and be able to do the same thing... So I guess I do not see any reason in switching for me, but you may have other reasons. Both connectors are good either way you decide to go.

If you are all on one standard (traxxas connectors) i'd stick with it. I made a few adaptors so I can go back and forth as needed when others need to borrow a battery (or vise versa). Past that they both do a better job than the old tamiya connectors!

Okay thanks for the advice. Guess I'll keep using traxxas connectors
