- Simple solder connections - positive "snap" on ends - excellent "how to" video - no need for shrink tube at wire/connector junction - much simpler than deans.
- The EC5 connector that is installed on the Battery has a female metal connector and the blue plastic housing is male. This leads to extreme confusion when ordering. I was thinking about the metal and ordered the female connectors. What I received was the blue plastic female connector with male metal contacts - opposite of what I needed for installing on batteries. Other brand EC5 have "BATT" and "DEV" molded in the blue plastic and identifying the connectors this way reduces the confusion. Looking at the picture would have eliminated the problem, but hindsight always works best.
Excellent product! Very easy to solder
One question however - When the connector is inserted into the plastic housing, the connector extends beyond the plastic housing. If the connector is pushed back into the housing, then a portion of the connector extends out the top of the plastic housing. Did I receive the correct product? Is my technique incorrect??
ProgressiveRC Comment: Yes, please watch our product video. The connector should extend out of the back of the housing and will require heat shrink tubing to finish and cover the metal on the back of the connector where it meets the wire.
