Power connectors for smart battery packs
Molex claims it is the dominant battery connector supplier for drones. It had examples of its offerings at Xponential that included high-current connections for smart battery packs. The contacts can handle up to 30 and 60 A of steady state current, depending on the style. Battery contacts feature a low mating force that allows up to 1,500 mating cycles. The “smart connector” moniker comes from the fact that the connectors can host hybrid power and signal arrangements.
