    I had the Furibee X140 sent to me, and I decided on the batteries by reading the questions at the bottom of the page. In one question, it was asked what connector it had, and an associate with Gearbest stated "XT30". So I ordered batteries that had that connector on it. Guess what, that info was wrong.

    Thankfully over the years of ordering batteries, I have a good little supply of XT60 connectors laying around from swapping over to Deans or T-Plug connectors. Now that I'm thinking about swapping over to XT60 on all of my packs, I figured I would just replace these connectors (XT30) with XT60 connectors so that when I do change over, I can use the same balance board to charge all of my batteries.

    many what i would call dangerous acts in your how to video .id say How don't ..don't use a exacto knife to remove plastic hold down straps on new batteries.. don't remove heat shrink tube with exacto knife..a butane lighter will also remove it safely.. don't expose both negative and positive terminal or wires at same time.. Use insulated clamp to pull battery lead away from other...put female end on and connector your soldering to help prevent heat distortion..

    Hi Tony, I find when your soldering the wire to the plus and need to hold it, I use a piece of wet sponge, it saves the ouchies on the fingers and prevents the heat traveling up the wire to the heat shrink especially if the wires are only short.

      That is an excellent tip Keith! I have always held them and if they were really short, I would use a pair of pliers, but never thought about a wet sponge. I may have to give that one a shot!
