Good morning people,
I bought 4 3S lipo from HQ and I want to make a harness to connect them in serie.
Plan is to use XT60 connector to connect lipo to harness and XT90 anti-spark to connect harness to VESC.
I have a couple of questions for you:
1:Can I use 10 AWG wire?
2:The XT60 connector have a sort of covert as shown on the picture (I haven’t seen this type used before), do I need to put shrink tube on solder ?
3: Female part of connector is to solder on battery right?
You can use 10awg wire, and putting shrink tubing over the solder joints is a must. Usually male connectors are battery side, but it does not matter as long as you have the matching connector on the ESC.
Also I would be careful with your solder joints. They don’t look fully melted and could have a bad connection.
True, I’m usually use XT90 so it fits. The wire does not have to go in as long as the solder join is good. You may not be able to fit the cap on (not necessary) with 10awg. You could always go down to 12awg if you have it on hand.
