I'm getting some of these batteries http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__37567__Turnig y_nano_tech_300mah_2S_45_90C_Lipo_Pack_UK_Warehouse_ .html
And I need to change the current mini-t male connection on my device to a jst so it will fit the battery,
Is this the right connection I need to swap for my current mini-t male?
IMPORTANT: THIS IS CORRECTLY DESCRIBED AS A BATTERY CONNECTION. (The other, mating connector is incorrectly described as a battery connector ) This is a pigtail you would solder to a battery! The two packets I ordered last year are labeled as "20 AWG. Finally, may people get confused about which connector is used for what, and whether to call a connector male or female. Here's a tip: Forget the words "male" and "female". Just remember that the METAL connection for all hobby batteries is a socket, FOR SAFETY PURPOSES! Why? Cause you don't want to use exposed, naked metal pins on a battery, since they are so easy to short out and cause damage! BATTERIES ALWAYS USE A BRASS SOCKET BECAUSE THEY'RE SAFER. That means that, the other metal connection must be a metal PIN, to fit into the battery's metal socket. Easy, no?
you would think so, but no, that is wrong. With this style, many of the batteries come with have the male plug and it has exposed contacts !, although they are just slightly recessed (unlike Deans that stick out like cattle prods). You can use pigtails for anything, they are easier to tie-in than making your own connectors from the kits they sell.
I meant to say, yes you are right these are battery connectors, but the better shielded one connects to these. These are male in the seance the plastic housing plugs into the other housing, butthe pins are in the other housing. Still the little 'jack's on these are kinda exposed on one side, Idk why. Maybe someone knows.
Yes this will plug into the board but I suggest you get this so you can see the voltage of the battery and each cell. It is really good idea to get this keeps your batteries safe from over discharging.
