The reason you are struggling is of course the guage of wire, this is because of the potential of the battery in terms of current draw, however, provided you are drawing no more amps than reccomended for EC3's, it won't be a problem, to make soldering easier, "tin" the wire then cut it at 45 degrees near the tip, it will be easier to get into the connector although not sure about the sleeve over the wire itself....which may be rather tight.
Thank you for your answer. How can I tell what the EC3 is rated for? Also, how do I know how many amps I am drawing? I'm using: Turnigy 3300mAh 4S 30C Lipo Pack Turnigy G46 Brushless Outrunner 670kv (.46 Glow) TURNIGY Plush 60amp Speed Controller
EC3 connectors are rated at a constant 60A. There really isn't a way to guess your current draw as it is very dependant on the size of prop being used. You should invest in a watt meter, they are a very handy tool for electric flight!
faulty cell , no refund, beware !!!!! I ordered two batteries , both had a bad cell voltage 2.34 in one, the second 0.74 Volts. as i came to use the batteries a month after they arrived hobbyking (hobbycity) don't agree to replace them !!!! Beware , they are not loyal , they don*t check the batterys before shipping them. always check batterys the moment they arrive
Well...at least you have your order. I ordered them on june 18 2010. I haven't received mine yet! Been billed on my CC too! I sent three or four e-mails to HK...no response. Called the 800 number...no response. I am very unhappy with this situation!!! HK don't take orders on merchandise you don't have.
I need to buy a Turnigy 3000MAH 4S 30C Li-Po battery, but not sure if the balance connector plug on the Turnigy battery would fit any of my Triton EQ battery chargers balance connectors. Can someone tell me if it would fit.
