There are a vast range of different types of battery connectors used by different manufacturers on different batteries and battery accessories such as chargers and speed controllers.

We suggest you try to choose your own preferred connector type(s) and stick to those to ensure compatibility with all your own equipment and models. If you have the equipment and skills it is a relatively easy task to cut off different plug types and solder / crimp on your preferred type.

The main picture shows a range of the most popular battery connectors and balance / charging plugs. They are labelled and listed as follows :

 



  • B1 - Deans (T) type main connector - Female & Male. Used for main connection to speed controllers and motors. Used for medium to high current draw. HOBBYWING chooses this connection mainly
  • B2 - JST / BEC type main connector - Female & Male. Used for main connection to speed controllers and motors. Used for low current draw
  • B3 - Tamiya main battery plug usually used on Car and Boat batteries (NiCd / NiMh) - Female & Male
  • B4 - Bullet Connectors - Female & Male. Single wire connectors, available in a range of different sizes to suit current draw / load requirements from 2mm to 8mm
  • B5 - HXT Connectors - Female & Male. Available in 3.5mm and 4.00mm sizes. Used for main battery connectors for medium / high power applications
  • B6 - Traxxas Connectors - Male & Female. Mainly used on high current draw car and boat batteries
  • B7 - XT60 Connectors - Male & Female. Used for high current draw battery connections
  • B8 - EC3 Connectors - Male & Female. Used for high current draw battery connections
  • B9 - Flight Power / Thunder Power (FP / TP) LiPo Balance Charger plug - Female & Male
  • B10 - Hyperion / PolyQuest (HP / PQ) LiPo Balance Charger plug - Female & Male
  • B11 - JST-XHR (XH) LiPo Balance Charger plug - Female & Male
  • B12 - JST-EHR (EH) LiPo Balance Charger plug - Female & Male

Hope this helps. Our recommendation is no doubt, use B7 that is XT type (XT60, XT90, or larger). 

++ Important notes +++
"Minimum 70C suggested, lower C rating may be okay, however it will not provide the intended experience. Also, How Power Plugs must be used. The surface area of your plugs, must be "larger" than the wires installed or you will very likely have problems. TRX, "T Plug", EC plugs, and "Deans" are not suggested for today's upgraded electronics setups."
