Default Watt meter connectors

I plan to get a meter, wonder if 4 small alligators would work, I use XT60s and Deans on my ESC's and Batteries.
Think they would work?
Thnx.

Not very well, there will be to high an impedance. You want very good connectors as you will be drawing high currents.

You're also looking to have a short!!
You'd be best off converting to one connector type using a Deans to EC3 adapters ang soldering a set of the connectors you use most on the meter.
I can't envision how you would connect aggravator clips to female Deans unless there was no heatshrink on the solder connections and the male EC3 (esc) would be problem getting in on the male pins.

You have to be kidding! Use the same connectors that you use to connect the Lipos and ESC's.
I'll leave the whyfors to someone else.
