Using Deans Ultra Plugs for Heatbed Power Quick Disconnect

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't recommend the original Dean's plugs. It's pretty much impossible to unmate these connectors without ripping off the wires...

There are chinese knockoffs (for example the hobbyking ones) which have grips. These are actually better, but I'd still recommend using XT60 plugs or whatever else.

You'll need a good soldering iron with a wide tip. It takes a lot of heating power to solder these plugs.
