HXT 4mm Gold Connector w/ Protector (10pcs/set)

This is a great way to avoid power shorts.
Rated to around 93A

Gold connectors on their own are notorious for creating a short circuit and looking messy. Use these to keep your connections safe and looking neat!

An excellent replacement for Deans T-connectors!
Good for wire up to 10AWG thickness.

Easier to solder and a stronger connection than Deans T-plugs

Can I use this item on 150A esc with lipo 4s 4000mah 40c ? Will this be melt If I use on 150A esc with lipo 4s 4000mah 40c ? pls,,let me know.

Assuming your motor can draw that much, our battery/ESC can deliver 150A for a max 96 seconds...10awg wire can handle 150A * 12v for under 3 feet, if you use that the connector would probably what gets hot (besides the ESC)...the connector wont melt (the solder would give way first) but the plastic housing might Check out PRODUCT ID: 258000002 HXT 6mm Gold Connector. It's rated for 120A.

HAPPY PETE ....I want to you 150A ESC for 2100watt 2100kv motor for my buggy with lipo 4000mah 4s 40c. But I donot know whether this connector and Awg10 can hold the condition what I said. Would you gove an answer?
 Pappy_Pete 147 points
2100watt at 14.7volts is about 143 amps so the ESC and 10awg will work 4000mAh = 4.0Ah 4.0Ah/143A = 0.02797hours or 100 seconds of total run time per charge ...use HXT 6mm Gold Connector instead...PRODUCT ID: 258000002

Solid connector, easy to connect(compared to deans/T-connector)and doesnt require heat shrink, but theres a few downsides. Lets you connect 2 batteries together in short circuit mode(lipo grenade, anyone? plug and toss..lol), getting polarity right is somewhat more complicated, and once the gold connectors are in place in the housing, they are very difficult to remove again, sure, wont come loose by accident, but makes re-using them or correcting polarity etc a pain.

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!
