Deans to Tamiya

Ok so im ordering a G&P m4 and its wired for a deans battery, well b/c i don't want a new battery i want to switch to tamiya I know i need a "Male Deans to Small Female Tamiya Adapter Cable" and i think i need a "Deans T-Connector Set for RC / Airsoft (One Male One Female) - Small Type"

Both those items are on Evike.com if you want to look for yourself

Thanks for the help

I highly suggest just buying female Deans plugs instead and rewiring the battery connector. As long as you as familiar with soldering, it's not too hard at all! Plus you enjoy the benefits of deans!

One, you really should learn how to solder. You take a soldering iron, it heats up, melts the soldering, you use the hot metal to connect two metal pieces. Easy.

Two, a deans connectors are super cheap to buy individually. Then you can change your other guns, batteries, and charger to deans.

What don't you understand?
They are saying that you should buy the deans connections and rewire the tamiya to deans. It really isn't that hard. You use a soldering rod (the tool used to melt solder, which is a soft metal that hardens quickly) to connect the wires to the deans connector. If you really don't want to do that, yes you can just buy the adapter. And all you need is a deans adapter for your charger (tamiya female to male deans) to charge a deans battery.

Here is what you should by if you are going to try to rewire the batteries to deans. http://www.evike.com/product_info.ph...ducts_id=35978
You only need the female part so these work too.

One of these for your charger.

And here is how to do it.

If you don't want to rewire, then you have to buy one of these for your gun.

The charger doesn't need an adapter then

In the end it's your choice considering the connection type is an opinion. Deans are easier to use but tamiya is already there.

You can take the battery to most hobby stores and they will solder the female deans on for you.

I sent you a PM before checking back on this thread. After reading through, it wouldn't be a bad idea to just take it to any hobby shop, doesn't even have to be an airsoft shop.

You can get a soldering iron and some solder for like $10 .. but since you seem really lost, I'd highly recommend just going to your local Hobby store (search Hobby stores in your area in Google if you don't know of any) and bring your Battery & Charger to them.

Tell them you want the Tamiya connectors converted to Deans connectors and they'll just solder on the deans for you right there for like $10.

Hobby stores are great, but if you have a local "Batteries Plus" store, they can do that for you as well. If you bring them brownies, they might just teach you how to solder.
