anybody else that uses this(skalinder, john r), you cats notice any power cutouts w/out duct taping everything together???

i noticed huge dropouts of power when i just moved my batt or something around,but since ive done the duct tape around all of the connections, its golden, i picked up my whole bookbag and put it on my back w/ headphones, no cutouts at all, just needed some sturdying,and a piece of duct tape over the cheezy rat shack plastic connectors;-)

any similar experiences???

If you're getting power drops from moving the battery or cable a bit, something's wrong.  Re-do your connections - they should be solid even if you're moving stuff around, duct tape or no.

theres nothing wrong w/ my crimping,i checked that, but the plastic extra leads do not connect to well, they just snap, and if they get moved around, they cut,which isnormal, but im getting shrink wrap in a bit,so that'll solve the problem for sure

This isn't normal, Bean.  I have 2 power cables + 3/4 RC batts all using those little white plastic connectors and they've never cut out on me even with vigorous movement.  Maybe I'm the exception, but I doubt it.

i only noticed it when i shook it around, which most likely is gonna be the conditions at mr smalls, it is just that theyre cheap-ass connectors, maybe its just that one batt, ill have to get another 1000mah and see,ill let ya know!!!

either way, like i said, it'll look nice and professional once i get some shrink wrap :)and it works great w/ just the duct tape even

theres not many ppl running these, so our experiences seem to be the only ones :-\

As long as you're comfortable with it, Bean (but I know I wouldn't be, too damn paranoid about that kinda thing!).  You could always hack of the cheapo plastic connectors and use XLRs.  Hmmmmm...now that's got me thinking...
