Deans Plugs are one of the simplest designs out there for a 2 conductor plug set. It is constructed of 2 bladed connectors with one set 90° to the other, preventing reverse connections. The benefits of Deans plugs are the efficient size and a reasonable power handling capacity of 60 amps continuous. The primary drawback is they they require an efficient soldering technique since they will deform if too much heat is used. They are sized to accept 12 - 14 AWG wire , however due to the open design are able to be used with a wider range if needed.Deans plugs have become a popular standard for electric bike builders.
