Many connectors are small and diffucult to grip. Especially if you have oil or grime on your hands. Turnigy makes life easier with their BigGrip connector adapters. These handy adapters mount to your XT-60 and give you a textured, larger surface area to grip the connector when disconnecting power. This saves you frustration, and eliminates any need to tug on the wires themselves. Each adapter is two pieces, and is attached using a small dab of glue.
We suggest a silicone type sealant glue as this makes the adapter semi-removable without damaging the plastic of the plug should you ever need to service a solder joint.
This set is for XT-60 Females/Male
Also available as:
Plug Type: XT-60 Male/Female
Qty: 12 pieces (6 Male, 6 Female)
These are a must have item !!! Provides a secure connection and easy grip to unplug. Just wish these were available for the XT 90 connectors.Para los conectores XT 60Not cheap, but should make things easier.
They should really be a snap on/off fit but you have to glue them on.Quite nice stuff, gives you much better grip and there is no danger to pull on the cables when unplugging XT60s anymore. You will have to use glue, otherwise those plugsavers wont really work well (ok, you could use pressure of your hands).
But there is a quite big disadvantage when using those plugs on XT60s (glues to battery plugs): If you like parallen charging, you will have troubles using Hobbyking parallel charging boards. In Hobbyking Parallel charging Board for 6 packs 2~6S (XT-60) SKU: PCB004 you can only use every second of the plugs on the board (because the pairs are set too narrow to each other), and in HobbyKing Safe 40A Parallel Charge Board for 4 Packs 2~6S (XT60) SKU: 258000083 you cant push the battery plug fully into the plug on the board in the two inner XT60 plugs of the board, because the fuses of the board are there. Plugging "a little bit" would work, but I am not sure if this is a save connection. In the outermost two plugs of the board plugging in battery plugs works with a little bit of pressure and bending.
Probably Parallel Charging Board for 6 packs 2~6S (Bare Leads) SKU: 9171000153 would work well with XT60s on the board.
