Re: EC3 Connectors and other comparisons
I personally have great luck with the XT60's. It is important to get quality ones, ones that won't melt down and deform during the soldering process. For the ones I bought, they had solder cups that held dual 16 gauge wire, no sweat. For reference that's Monoprice 4 conductor, with two conductors per side soldered together. Quite a bit of copper IMO.
Here's some finished:
The only thing I didn't love about these cables I made is the semi-opaque white heatshrink.
I debated back and forth with the EC3 vs. the XT60 and Deans, etc. Also, the Traxxas connectors, they can be an option as well. I like the simplicity and compactness of the XT60, that's what sold it for me.
I use a "helping hand" device to hold the wire, and solder it to the cup. Near impossible to to with two hands otherwise.
Special thanks to all of the industry experts that share their knowledge here on the forum
