Might be a bit dangerous for new users to LIPO.
If batteries of different state of charge are connected in parallel there will be fireworks!

Found them on my own today and then on ES. I was looking for 6s female to female wires though so I can hook up Gary's LVC boards???? :?: :| The balance wires are too short.
ES IS SAVED! THANK YOU JUSTIN.

They are hobbykings answer to Deans connectors. XT-60 they call them. I like them for up to 12g wire.

looking at it..... it's cheap, but i think the more expensive ggoodrum board may end up being what i get.

Those connectors look like a copy of the Astroflight "zero loss" connectors that Bob Boucher manufactures.
