lipo battery connector LiPos, on the other hand, require a bit more during the charging process. Not only do you have to make sure your charging plug is correct but, ideally, you want to make sure that you have the right balance plug as well (you are balancing your LiPos, aren’t you?). Since there isn’t really a standardized plug, you could have one of several different types of plugs attached to your pack. This can be confusing, but thankfully Gens ace is here to give you the lowdown on the most common connectors and balance plugs on the market.

connectors for rc 

As shown in the connector types , there are all sorts of flavors and sizes of RC LiPo battery connectors out there and those photos only shows a small smattering. So which one to use can be a complicated decision when you are first starting out if you don't know much about them yet. I hope this page helps you with that :-)

The purpose of all these RC LiPo Battery connectors is simple. They offer a convenient & easy way to connect our RC LiPo battery packs into our model's ESC/Power system to complete the electrical circuit, allowing the current to flow from the Battery to the ESC and/or other electronic systems/components.

ec3 connector

Main power plugs/connectors have a finite cycle life (how many times they can be plugged & unplugged) before they start wearing out, pitting & carbon burning from ESC capacitor charging arcs, oxidation, dirt, or the spring tension of the contact points starts getting weak. 

All conditions or a combination will give you an increasingly poor connection with increased resistance over time. This generally starts showing up as power drop-offs or worse, cut-outs & restarts under high current loading meaning it's time to replace your connectors. Yep, I've been there and have the sad remains of the heli as a reminder!

You may recall I mentioned "Male" & "Female" a few times while describing some of these various connectors at the article The Most Common RC Lipo Battery Connectors You Should Know. And in the next picture I show one sex of connector as the LiPo/Source, and the other as the ESC/Device.

Why is this important?

Basically, any connector that has power at the pins (ie. the one on the battery side or BEC side), must be the one out of the two that is the least likely to short out! This is very important for safety reasons and I have often seen people new to the hobby solder the wrong sex on the wrong end.
