11g per pair x 12 pair = 132g total. Wheres the other 32g Hobby King? Or is this how you fleece customers on shipping?

Did you weight the packaging material.? There weight is based on packaging material as well to give you the correct total shipping weight.

They come in a small plastic bag. It doesnt weigh 32 grams... I have ordered numerous bags but due to their current shipping pricing Im calling them out on where they fleece us.

Ever heard of dimensional shipping weights?? Anyway, you still have to pay for the 200g shipping either way.
 nlmbc 815 points
you think the weight issue is bad for this one how about this items inflated weight VBP42-007 180g for 2 nuts and bolts ( Aluminum ) At least this product dose have weight behind it. and is pritty close.

Hey guys Would these connecters be ok to use as battery connecters for my "2s 7600mah" and "3s 5000mah 3s" nano-tech (E-Revo)
 jmparatte 10 points
Yes, but a 6mm could be enough.
We have checked those connectors with a LiFe 16Ah (16000mAh) and a burst current of 150 to 200A: no significative voltage loss.
This connector can be difficult to braze due to the big metallic mass.

I've had 306a at 42v through these connectors with my losi 5ive conversion

how to solder them
 newbie guide 625 points
make holes on wood brick or tray and fill with the solder wire, then add the wire and heat the connector to solder in place.

are these good conductivity.
 newbie guide 625 points
yes, rated at 170amps is a lot of conductivity.

They work well to start but mine are getting very hot and they need replacing after about 30 flights. Maybe a spark arrestor will help as they are blackened. Im using them on a 6s 5000 nano. Im going to try somthing else.

Any housing for this connector?
 ananasbrus 74 points
Use heat shrink tube, 10mm will fit nicely.
 MTA-4 88 points
I use these connectors and just wrap them in 8mm shrink tube. I also wire up the positive on the battery as Female, and the negative as male to prevent reverse polarity connections.
 KuSh_0g 11 points
i just use shrink tubing over the connector
 tayothin 97 points
No, You need addition order shink tube
 wouxun 6 points

great for high current applications. I use on my boat with feigao 6xl motor and hydra 240. So far no more melted solder joints.

Not so good. Way too hard to put together the first time, but get very quickly too soft. Will look for alternatives.
Otherwise, it solders well even with that huge size!

These connectors are HUGE! One of my friends said they look like bullet shells/cases. LOL
They look like they can handle massive amounts of amps.
-Just knowing that castle's 6.5 mm connectors can handle 200A, these could handle more the 300A probably - due to their size.
