Default Replace connectors

Hi Guys and Ladies
What connectors would be best to replace powerpole conectors.
I need new batteries for a used plane I have bought which has powerpole on the motor,
there are powerpole on the existing battery but no one seems to sell new batteries in the UK with these connectors.
Thanks all

chop them off and put on what you want. Deans are most popular but the XT type are also big and come already attached on the Hobby King batteries. You can get all kinds at HK. or Tower Hobbies.

Connector tests
translate...www.elektromodellflug.de

Very useful site, powersupply, charger, battery, controller, motor, receiver etc. tests.

Vriendelijke groeten Ron

I think the XT60 connectors are junk and the company that promotes them is not very good either (but that's another discussion). Deans have been around for a long time and are a proven connector. Just don't buy the cheap copies. What a manufacturer installs on a battery doesn't mean much as most users cut them off and put something else on. The better battery manufactures sell their packs with no connector installed.
Pick one style connector and put them on everything you fly/drive.
