It fits good and looks reliable. Pass wires through housing, solder connectors, pull wires back not so toght and use another pair of connectors to insert em on just soldered - it will increase lenght and connectors will be longer than housing. Then face connectors down the table and push housing to click. After that you can remove 2nd pair of connectors.
Anyway It all depends on battery's connector because you can't change it - it's not safe. I got zippy lipo with that connector and used it with 4mm bullet connector without housing before I got these. T-style is widespread in china - I didn't found any batt with different connector. So Anderson is really great but it's not so popular on lipo-batterys sold here. Dunno why,,,
It happens from time to time. When David showed his tri built on DT750 motors it was out of stock for 2 months! I think someone made these connectors too popular :)

These are good connectors. I use them with the following set up:
EFlite power 46 BL motor Castle Creations Phoenix 80 ESC APC-E 13x8 prop
The tested current was:
28A @ 14V 38A @ 16.6V
The connectors did not increase in temperature. Plus, connecting in reverse polarity is impossible. Notice that one round cavity is bigger than the other. I put the male pin in the smaller cavity and the female one in the larger cavity. They fit snugly too
Great connectors! Use it for my Savage Flux and found one interesting thing. Flux has Y-like ESC-battery connectors for two batteries, but if you want to user one pack, you can connect one connector from one side and one connector from oher side! You can't do it with XT60 for example. I'm very satisfied!

top notch these , easy to snap together and pull apart . much better than deans in my opinion.
hopefully at this price they will push the deans out of the market or stop them charging far to much for an average plug
I couldn't get a 10AWG to fit in the casing without shaving off a bit of the insulation, but 12AWG should be ok. It's much easier to solder than the Deans connector, easier to connect and it can take more Amps.

I found the best way to insert the connectors into the housing is to take an unused opposite gender connector, push it into your newly soldered connector so you have some extra length then, using your bench vise GENTLY press the connector in until it clicks (you'll know when it is seated properly.) No need to yank on the wire or smack it with a hammer!
