XT60 Connectors

 One thing I have learned from e-biking all year round, is that not all connectors are made equally and many people want to have their own type of connectors.  When ever I get a replacement part, one of things I do is cut off the proprietary connector and replace it with XT60 connectors.  Makes life easier and these little suckers also stop shorts from being generated.

I was a fan of Anderson connectors but they aren't that easy to find.  Most hobby shops carry these and ordering them online is even cheaper.

The cable shown on the left is, a male XT60 connector with shrink tube around it, with a extra layer of black gorilla tape for extra weather protection.  Winter is murder if you don't take these per cautions.
