What is your suggestion and idea about EC5 or Powerpole 75 amp. Powerpole is easy set but EC5 solder. Which one better? Im going to use 12S Lipo.
Thanks for advance.

The Powerpoles are nice, but pricey and you need the crimper. EC5's do require soldering, but most people find it much easier than soldering Deans. Both, if done right are equally sufficient to do the job.

Power poles for me. Get a big bag of them and the crimper and never look back.

Thanks I already ordered powerpoles yesterday. I checked CC Bullets they have 5.5mm or 6.5 mm Bullets if it can fit for EC5?

Using EC5's on mine, no issues, no complaints. Even use them as my ESC to Motor
connectors. Without the plastic housings of course!
