I want to buy a couple of spare batteries for my Pro 3 and they are 16 from Maplin. The connectors on my current battery are soldered on and I would like to do the same with the new ones. Maplin don't sell any of the black and red connectors that connect the battery to the umbilical (and the charger).

Does anybody know where I can buy the connectors?

Cheers

Hi Stu,

Im not sure where the best place to get them from is, but you are looking for banana sockets.

A quick google -

MC (MULTI CONTACT)|9131100|4MM BANANA SOCKET - BLACK | CPC (http://cpc.farnell.com/mc-multi-contact/9131100/4mm-banana-socket-black/dp/CN00258)

They also do them in red.

Thanks Guys

The connector I have is different: I suspect they may have been changed by the previous owner

See Pic - If anybody can tell me the name of this connector that would be great. Is it two Anderson connectors?

Cheers

Yea they look like Anderson connectors, which is good as they seem to be easier to get hold of

Not changed by anyone, older Pro 3's have these connectors.

Mine have them too. They are Anderson Poles.

You can buy a pack of mixed Red/Black housings & contacts:
30 amp Powerpole - Red & Black pack of 10 [PPPACK-RB] - 4.50 : Torberry Connectors UK, On-line Shop (http://torberry.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=1)

Or you can order the housings separately:
15 & 30amp Powerpole Housings -any colour- pack of ten [PPPKxxx] - 2.65 : Torberry Connectors UK, On-line Shop (http://torberry.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=27)

When you order these make sure you get the 30A contacts:
30amp Powerpole Contact (1331) - pack of ten [TC-030-PACK-(1331)] - 1.85 : Torberry Connectors UK, On-line Shop (http://torberry.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=28)

The 15 amp are a little too small and the wire is a tight fit.
