Using Deans Ultra Plugs for Heatbed Power Quick Disconnect

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using Deans Ultra Plugs for Heatbed Power Quick Disconnect

Does anyone here have experience using Deans Ultra Connectors? I was thinking about using them to make a quick disconnect point for my Heated Bed build I am doing so that I could remove the PCB without having to de-solder all the connections if I ever needed to. They seem hefty enough.

I used them in my RC models, never had a problem with them. Also take a look at the XT60 connectors, I've upgraded to those, Deans are a pita to solder and use.

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.
