Default RE: Dean Connectors


ORIGINAL: Lazer

I fail to see just why so many people want to keep using the Deans Ultra plugs when you have to find other after market items to help make it easier to solder.
It just comes down to personal preference I guess. I like the Deans because of the enclosure of the voltage side contacts and they keying of the positive and negative leads. Also I wonder if the load rating is for sustained or intermittent peak current.

I spent years soldering wire on a daily basis, aftermarket items are not needed just the right tool and technique. I have a Weller soldering station with an 800 degree tip and have no issues. There are cheaper alternatives to what I use like a Tenma station for $35 from MCM.
