Andersons all the way.
( no matter how many people try to convince me otherwise )
The 75A bullets actually acted like a 150A fuse! I'm glad they melted! Running Andersens on anything powerful is just asking for problems. They barely handle their rated current and don't make good enough connections IMHO.
I run ONLY Anderson connectors. These have LONG great history in the in last decades in the industry.
I’m using PP30 connector for the motor phase ( that I recal are having 300A burst and 80A continuous on my E-Giant setup)
I need 11kW continuous in my X5 to hold 113km/h and never had any problem with the PP30 on the phase wires.
For the battery the SB50 are my preferred one if you use the proper wire size, they will work really well and can hold 100A continuous with the use of 6AWG cables no prob!.. I installed them for my 0-10V 0-100A psu.
Most of the TTXGP guys are using SB175 connectors, The Killacycle is using the SB350 connector that are rated 350A.. but they burst 2000A during 5 sec… and never had any issue with those
So my comment about those: THEY ARE REALLY STRONG! And.. you can connect any of these connector together.. and not have any pain due to Male or Female type complications!!
The reason why Luke had vaporized them is due to the kiloamp burst and arcing!.. It,s not like a connector that is already connected and that you burst high current thru it...
Arcing can damage any connector with current under their rated max amp.
Reversing polarity does create arcing and also 10 or 100 times more current...
The bullet connector might in some case have a lower miliohms than the same anderson category connector.. but they are subject male female problematic...
