How To Use the XT60 Connector?

The XT60 is a power connector that is commonly used with lithium polymer batteries. It consists of a hard fireproof outer case and gold-plated brass pins. These pins can accept wires up to 12AWG, which can be soldered easily, thanks to the brass coating. The non-symmetrical shape of the connector makes it difficult to make a reverse connection.
