These work great! Much easier to connect and disconnect than XT60 connectors! If solder runs out the hole it makes snapping the connector into the housing difficult. To remove excess solder that runs out the side hole heat it with your soldering iron and wipe it with a damp sponge. I use a short section of wooden dowel placed on a surface to help snap the connector into the housing.
U can use up to 10awg. Little more work though. Tin the tip of your wire then file it to fit the hole slide in heat up then feed a little more solder in the side hole. Love these style connectors use on all my cars even the 1/8 scale stuff!
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!
