From battery to vesc…
XT90 – rated for max 90A, but can support more quite well.
On the left is the female connector, on the right is the male. (Determined by the metal bits, not the plastic housing)
Same as XT90, but has a resistor built in which gets bridges the gap first, allowing your ESC capacitors to slowly charge up (without a spark), which then gets bypassed once you plug the connector in deep enough. No spark is safer for your electronics, and doesn’t wear down the connector!
XT60 – rated for max 60A
On the left is the male connector, on the right is the female.
XT30 – rated for max 30A
Almost as small as a JST connector, but can support far more current! Can be soldered to up to a 16 gauge wire!
AS150 – ???
QS8-S – rated for max 200A, anti-spark.
For the charging port
- DC5521 aka 5.5x2.1mm
This type of female port is only rated up to 2A. I (@rusins) burned one with a 5A charger
But these ones are rated up to 5A:
This female port from electricboardsolutions claims to be rated for up to 4A.
Xt90s and XT60s are also often used. Make sure not to mix it up with your loop key port!!! Always put a fuse in series with your charging port to avoid such disasters.
From the ESC to motors
5.5mm bullet connectors
4mm bullet connectors
12awg wire (awg means thickness lower=thicker)
Jst cables (hall sensors and lipo balance cable)
Jst-ph 2mm pitch
Jst-zh 1.5mm pitch (correct me if I am wrong)
PLEASE ADD ADDITIONS HERE
ANY ADDITIONS ARE APPRECIATED
