You'll be amazed how easily these tabs take solder. These fit "A" Diameter cells like 600AE, RRC1000, 1400AE, 1700AU, NiMH 2150-2700-4000 etc... Also fits any AA size cell and can be use for AAA size cells by cutting a bit shorter. Great for building or repairing your own electric flight packs (S-480 and smaller) or any RX or TX pack project. Examples shown, top of picture is AA cells, middle is 1700AUP and bottom is 600AE.
Approximate Maximum Current Capacity: 8-10Amps
Hint: Always use at least a 40 watt pencil iron (larger the tip the better) to solder cells. Never use a gun, even a 150 watt gun is too weak and slow due to low tip mass is easily cooled by the mass of a cell. 10 tabs each package.

You'll be amazed how easily these tabs take solder. The large size fits Sub C Diameter cells like RC2000,CP-1300, CP-1700, CP-2400 (shown at top of picture), HR-3000 NiMH and many others. Bottom cells in picture are 1700AUP showing they can also be used on "A" size cells. Can be used on smaller cells if you trim with your cutters. Great for building or repairing your own electric flight packs or larger TX and RX packs. Great for anything 25 amps or less.
Approximate Maximum Current Capacity: 15Amps
Hint: Always skuff a cell with sandpaper before soldering. Tin the cell, tin the tab, then seize the two together from the back of the tab. Hotter the iron, faster and better your work. 10 tabs per package.
SKU Number: RRCTABSLG
Heavy duty extra thick and wide for high current use. The large Heavy Duty size fits Sub C Diameter cells like RC2000,CP-1300, CP-1700, CP-2400(shown), HR-3000 NiMH and many others. Also shown on 1700AUP for "A" size example. Can be used on smaller cells if you trim with your cutters. Great for building or repairing your own electric flight packs or larger TX and RX packs. Great for anything 50 amps or less.
Approximate Maximum Current Capacity: 40 Amps
Hint: Tabs want to stick to iron when you lift it leaving tab on the iron and not on cell, use a small hardwood stick or dowel as a finger to hold tab down while soldering to cells. 10 taps per package.

SKU Number: RRCGBARS6PK
Braided solder wick is a popular tab material for building battery packs. It has the advantages of taking solder well and also being flexible. So, no loads from heating (expanding) or cooling (contracting) cells are put into the tabs and solder joints. As a solder wick, this material easily soaks up molten solder from PC boards allowing removal of components. 2mm wide, 5 feet long.
