Help Identifying Battery Connector

Post by SunCoaster » Jan 24 2022 12:41am

Picked up one of these 48 V surplus batteries and need to identify the male connector needed for a secure connector. Here's the battery:

This was bought from:
https://jag35.com/collections/lithium-batteries (excellent value, fast delivery; $66.12 total with shipping)

Attached is an image of the battery connector. Just the first and forth terminals are used for power.

If you don't have the cradle for that battery, and don't plan on getting one,you could just wire an XT60 or XT90 connector on a short extension cable into the battery.

I saw a video of the seller trying to dismantle the battery pack and it is a pain to take apart... The connector Amberwolf found will allow the battery to remain unmodified.

before ordering I would ask Grin for the spacing measurements and thicknesss of the fingers on their connector, so you can make sure it's the same as on yours. Not all the ones I have seen have the same finger / slot sizes or spacing. But it was the only one I knew I had seen that I knew where the page for it was. :)
