How to change battery plugs
When you’re looking for a new battery for your RC-vehicle, you may notice that all the batteries don’t necessarily have the same type of battery plug as your vehicle. There are plugs of different sizes and for different uses. The most common plug types include Tamiya, Traxxas, Deans/T-Plug, XT60, etc. It’s good to invest in plugs that are easy to use and are power efficient.
Changing the battery plug is easy. You’ll need:
Note: When you’re changing the plug, it’s important to remember that the battery wires + and – must not touch each other. If the wires touch, it can cause a short circuit, which in the worst case will damage the battery.

Pro Tip: if you are soldering a plastic plug, it is good to put the opposite plug in place in order to avoid bends when the wires warm up.
Following the steps below will help you to develop a routine for changing battery plugs
Note!When the soldering work is done, turn off the soldering iron and make sure that the iron is cooling down in a safe place.
