Does anyone know of any retailers who will rewire guns and batteries?

Although i could probably do it myself i lack the tools to do so at home. I purchased an MP5 last week and although it has a full stock perfect for large batteries it came with a small tamiya connector which got me thinking i would like to (ideally) get all my AEG's and batteries rewired to deans or atleast get my mp5 rewired to large tamiya, my current 9.6 battery is large and im having to use a mini to large converter but the quality of the converter is a little off (only paid like 75p for it) and i have actually witnessed the connections producing sparks so yeah, would like to stop using this before it causes any harm.

Thanks

Any suggestions?

I got mine from patrol base but the prongs on the mini tamiya side are really lopsided and seem to also be abit too short, i think the bad connection between the prongs might be what causes the sparking.

if you're going to rewire then I would advise going to your local site as most sites also fix guns guns and ask them to do it

You don't need to rewire the whole gun to change the connectors over.

You can buy tamiya connectors all over the place (eBay being a good source) and they are held on by clamping them on. All you need to invest in is a cheap set of wire strippers. Chop off the old connector, strip the wires a few mm, then install the new one.

Deans are almost as easy, but you need a soldering iron. You can get a cheapo one in Maplins for about a tenner, and a bag of Deans type connectors on eBay (which usually come with heat shrink). You do need to practice soldering a bit, but it's not hard if you have a steady hand. Again, no need to rewire the whole gun, just snip off the old connector and add the new one. I expect it would cost you more in labour charges than to just do it yourself including buying a soldering iron!

Obviously make sure you put the connectors on the right way round, and make sure if doing a battery you do one wire at a time and take care to prevent them touching each other and arcing. That's about it.

I know that Patrol Base will rewire guns for you, they'll do whatever you want them to, but the labour cost is 25, then there's the cost of posting it to them, having them post it back and the cost of any parts they use to get what you want doing done, so I think it's probably a lot, lot cheaper to give one of the above options a go.

Are mini tamiya safe to use with a 4300mah 9.6v battery?

Will they support the 50amps discharge rate of the VP racing battery pack?

If i'm going to do it myself i might aswell just convert my battery into a mini tamiya, then it matches my other batteries/guns for ease of use.

Any connectors will work, but if you're going to the effort of getting the soldering iron out, count up how many connectors you will need (don't forget your charger) and just buy the right amounts of deans plugs. More efficient and won't ever go melting together on you.
