Battery Connectors

I don't use plastic battery holders for critical applications, it's too easy for a cell to pop out. Instead, I use battery "snaps", or plug in connectors. The battery can move around at the end of its cable, but since the cable is flexible, there's no strain on the connector (unless the battery falls out of the airframe (in which case, you've got a lot of other problems).

The kinds of connectors I've used are Anderson Power Poles and Dean's Connectors.
