Jeti AFC Anti-Spark Connectors
 
Am I missing something?

I saw these Jeti AFC Anti-Spark Connectors on
http://www.espritmodel.com/jeti-afc-...s-4mm-75a.aspx

Why do I need to buy the Jeti female AFC connector with every set?

If the female AFC connector is the only active component then surely I need one in the model for the battery connectors and possibly another for the lead to my charger and all the other connectors on my batteries can be regular connectors?

Is it just cheaper to market a set of connectors and include one AFC female in every set rather than dealers stocking the AFC females as one item and the regular Jeti male/female connectors as another item?

If anyone has experience of these connectors can they advise if the female AFC connector is only compatible with other connectors in the Jeti set or will they match any other brand of 4mm gold plated connectors?

This thread is for the Jeti ESC's, but note that Castle Creations does not directly approve of these anti spark connectors for their equipment.

The problem is that not every mfg's 4mm is the same as every other mfg's 4mm. Depth is also important if you want the current carrying capacity to be the same.

Its generally a good idea to stick with all the same mfg when it comes to bullets.

Many thanks to kyleservicetech and Larry3215.

I guess it is acceptable to place these connectors inline with existing connectors in a model when using a Jeti ESC but the connectors are NOT recommended for use with Castle Creations ESCs.
