    Now, there’s a better option in high- efficiency power plugs: the Star Plug. It’s not only easier for modelers to use, it’s also 100% compatible with one of the most common polarized plugs in R/C. This gives modelers the unique opportunity to try it on a new pack without the work of changing the plug in their model.

    Its unique design also makes for faster,
    easier and neater installations by
    eliminating the need (and work) for heat
    shrink tubing. The plug has a rear cap that separates from the main body. Modelers slide the rear cap up the leads before soldering and slide it down afterwards, where it snaps tight to the main body. The rear cap also feature a center isolator, a simple feature that effectively prevents terminals from shorting. Like the cap, the main body is molded from a heat- and impact-resistant polymer for safe handling and long life.



    Its tapered shape and grip strips make the Star Plug easy to separate and connect. Gold- and nickel-plating on terminals ensure excellent conductivity and long life. A stainless steel spring ensures that connections start and stay tight, even after hundreds of uses.

    Look for them soon, at better hobby retailers everywhere.

  5. Deans compatible?
     

  6. I am guessing that they are saying that without saying "Deans" with the first sentence, but I am not 100% sure.

  7. I've been using the XT-60 connectors and they are solid and tight but sometimes it takes an act of Congress to get the little bastards unplugged...I think I might give the Star plugs a try..
