Pretty good connectors – 2.0mm Gold Plated Banana/Bullet Connectors with Heat Shrink Tubing (20-Pair) Reviews

Pros:
These bullet connectors are very easy to solder and the seem to be mechanically very well built. I can't tell if they are gold plated, but solder sure sticks to them with no problem and they form a mechanically secure connection with the wire.
Cons:
The price is the major con. You can find them for quite a bit cheaper on other hobby sites, but when you factor in shipping costs these connectors from DX are too badly priced. I figure a more reasonable price for these would be about $5 to $6. Then the purchase would be a no-brainer.
Other:
Bottomline:
These bullet connectors work very well for connecting up an ESC to brushless motors. For this small size you'll want to keep the amperage below 20 amps or so, or switch to the larger 3mm size also available from DealExtreme.
