Speedzone 2S & 1S LiPo Battery connectors

Speedzone 2S & 1S LiPo Battery connectors

Speedzone now offers a variety of connector options for LiPo batteries.  First up is a standard length connector available with a balance plug, 4mm bullet connectors and a Deans type or Traxxas connector.  These are also available without a balance plug for 1S applications, or for tight fitting areas.  Next up are 85mm length connectors which are also available with Deans type or Traxxas connectors, with and without balance plugs.  The shortened wire length allows these connectors to be used in places where room is an issue or gives the user a neat and compact finish to their wiring layout, while still using a plug and play connector for their battery packs.  Connectors come with 12 gauge wire and can be used as a harness connector for hook-up to a charger or ESC.  Speedzone also makes available their own low profile, low resistance 4mm male connectors. These types of connectors allow for soldering your wires at a 90 degree angle to the connector, permitting greater room for body and chassis clearance.
