The title sums this up. I plugged in the charger to my 72v Li-ion without it powered on and it made a massive spark, and when I pulled them apart, the male RCA monster connector from the charger snapped off and is now stuck in the battery's female connector.
Recommendations of what should I do?
After this incident, I'm a little wary of putting a new connector on the battery, fearful that the wires will touch when removing the old connector since I've never done that before. Anyone have recommendations how to take care of this? I was thinking of cutting one of the wires first, tape it off, then cut the other. Does it matter what order? Positive or negative?
Ditto with the charger connector.
While I'm at it, is there a connector people recommend over RCA since I'm doing this all over? Maybe something covered in lots of rubber so I don't turn my thumb black with soot
