I was wondering if the cables can be separated or are one piece?
I want to use this on my quadcopter, the cable coming out of the esc is t-style and the battery is a XT60 style. if they can be separated it will be not as heavy
Well it would work to connect your ESC with your battery, but there are different (smaller, less heavy) adapters for that. This adapter is very suitable if you want to connect your charger with many different kinds of batteries (which have different connectors)! Good luck. Hope this helps
Well the easy way would be to take a set of deans connectors (both male and female) , and swap them on your existing battery and charger.Or you could swap the connector on the battery to a female deans plug and use a normal lipo charger that comes with a deans connector.Note that most lipo chargers are capable of charging 1 sell batteries.
Im going to buy a Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger which has xt60 plugs at the end of the banana thing. LOL. Now my lipo battery has the deans plug and the tamiya adapter. Will this fit the xt60 and connect to a deans plug or tamiya adapter lipo battery?
This adapter has male and female XT60s, male and female Tamiya, and male and female Deans, so it should connect to either or both of the plugs you said. I personally use Traxxas plugs but I have deans as well, and this charges them both.
backorder means that you can buy it but u will receive only when they receive some units back in stock. so to make it easier for you it means to pay for it now and get it when they are in stock www.link
Thx for the reply Andras. Just ordered this item and you just gave me the answer to my question :) I only have to cut the Tamiya connector off and put 4mm bullet cons to it and have my new battery in working order. Btw are the wires 12, 14 or 16 AWG?
Does this mean one can use this product/s to run Lipos with XT60 plugs (ala hobbyking products), directly into a traxxas esc connection? Don't want to have to solder Traxxas plugs onto hobbyking batteries....
I have this item and use it for testing different E-aircraft combinations as it really can join almost anything. This saves time in testing my aircraft. If it was used in a plane it would be too heavy. In a car it would not only be to bulky but would add uneccesary weight if racing.
This has no input connector* it is not actually charging harness. it is basically convertor which allow you to convert any type connector to any type connector, for example if your battery has XT60 connector but your charging plug is Dean (T-Connector) then you can use this MEGA-ADAPTER in between the charging plug and battery.
you can use it for flying too. but you should take a look that u dont to high with Amperes (think not over 100A). and the Adapter is truly heavy! if u have a small/light weight Plane yout should better solder ur own Adapter for ur needs.
I just use mine for charging, a little heavy to put in most regular sized aircraft. Try to make most connectors alike, saves alot of grief. Try XT-60's from Hobby-King they work great and are not expensive, and easier than most to dis-connect when you need to!!!
Thanks for your replies. My order just arrived today. It just took a little over 5 weeks for the item to change from 'backordered' to 'reserved' The items just arrived today (8 weeks total to Canada). I had flagged the item on my e-mail alert so I was aware when they were finally back in stock. I sent the question because it seemed to be taking forever to come back in stock given the estimate on the webpage and wanted to ask HK for a better estimate at the time.
Yup they all come from different manufactures. To bad it's impossible to have a connector work with every battery size. A plug on a 6S 5000mah is way to heavy for a 2s 800mah LOL
But like JST for every thing under # and XT60 for every thing above # would be nice. To bad XT60 is the new kid on the block. It's a great connector and i think a lot of people are starting to make the switch.
Exactly right Eric, they don't hire color blind people...... also they never ever hire anyone who ever has, or ever will make a mistake. Absolute perfection on absolutely every product is all that is possible. In fact if ever a mistake occured in a chinese electronics factory the universe as we know it would simply pop out of existence with a sound quite similar to plucking your finger out of an empty pop bottle.
Pictures? Give me a break man, I've recieved whole battery packs wired backwards (not from hobbyking) and got a refund without supplying pictures.
There is a male side and a female side of every connector shown. If you look closely you can see that the left side is the female side and the right side is the male connectors. The xt-60's are harder to see and the deans male has a cap over it to prevent shorts. They should have included a cap for the traxxas style male connector. But I see this as a charging cable. Not to run and bash with. To many things that can get caught, create more clutter and if it isn't 100% soldered it might come loose.
guaranteed to foul up the rest of the cords in your flight box! LOL! Although I must admit...I've found I actually use the "multiplug to bannana jack" adapter that came with my Eco6 quite a bit! I'm always shuffling cords between three flight boxes...so I end up forgetting an essential one quite often...but hey! There's that ugly one, to the rescue! lol!
