Connectors

Power connectors come in various of shapes and sizes.   Choosing a power connector is dictated by power requirements and compatibility.   The most common power connectors are XT-60, Deans Ultra Plugs and EC3 and EC5 Bullet Connectors.

I use the Deans Ultra connectors but I found they can lose contact when fully plugged in.  This is an inherent design flaw with the T type connector.  I would choose the XT-60 connector if I was not so invested in the Deans connector.  I favor the XT-60 because they are easier to solder and connect and disconnect with ease.
