I NEVER use bullets on Battery to ESC - too afraid of one day making a mistake. I use Deans or XT60 to make sure I get polarity right. Bullets I reserve for Motor leads so I can swap over if necessary.

On a model where extension is permanent - then I solder the wire ends together with heat shrink over.
