Default Nano QX vs. Inductrix Battery Connector

Is there a difference between the battery connectors on the Nano QX and Inductrix?

Or...Is there a difference in the connectors on Eflite 1S 150 mAh battery vs. Eflite 1S 200 mAh battery?

The Eflite 200 mAh batteries connect to both my Inductrix and Nano CP X - it's an ok fit, but not as smooth as the 150's.

But...these 200's just won't connect with my Nano QX - I was able to get 1 of 4 to connect with some force. The 150's connect easily to the QX, as do some Lecitron 160's I have.

Can't figure out if the problem is the battery connector on the 200's or the connector on my Nano QX. The 200's definitely don't "plug in" as smoothly as the 150's on my Inductrix or CP X, but they will connect.

Any help or comments appreciated!

They all have the same Molex Picoblade 1.25mm connector.

If it's tighter, that means the contacts are less worn, and should deliver better power with less resistance at the contacts...

Thanks for the info!

Any idea why I can't get 3 out of the 4 Eflite 200's to plug in to my Nano QX?

Short of being plugged in the wrong way there's no reason it shouldn't. Make sure there's nothing in the connectors.

Thanks! I'll check again at both ends. Kinda thinking maybe poor quality connectors on these 200's, since they're just not a smooth connection with my Inductrix or CP X either.

Consider upgrading to the "PowerWhoop" connector and batteries from TinyWhoop.com. They allow much lower resistance and better power transfer for higher power models. They also don't wear down as fast as the Picoblades. It's been proven and tested that by 30 cycles of plugging/unplugging the stock Picoblades increase substantially in resistance and has been the cause of super short flight time.

30 cycles only??

Source?

And... what would you do with your existing batteries?
Come on.

These little battery connectors aren't made to the most exacting standards. You will get some batteries that will seem to plug into one thing and not another even from the same batch.
There are some connectors that work better I've found. I don't like the stock ones with the little flap/tab on one side and have replaced them.
