    Dynohub connector question.

    I recently built a SON 28 150mm hub for my wife's fatbike. I've paired it with a Luxos U to give her good light and daytime charging options.

    I've only owned a few dynohub/light combos through the years, but one thing that surprised me with my first one in the 80's, and still surprises me today, is the use of spade connectors to join the light to the hub.

    The amount of research and development that has gone into this hub and light is astounding. The technology that is used to produce the power and distribute the light equally so. And then you get to the connectors and it appears that at the very last moment before putting the finished products into the box to ship they just grabbed what they had laying around in a coffee can and called it good.

    Is there really not a better way to do this?

    Put differently, has anyone spliced any other sort of connector in there with good success?

    Any info, opinions, or suggestions appreciated.

    Compared to the shimano style attachment, spade connectors look pretty good.


    Only attempt to improve the connectors is Dyna-Snap Cable Connectors, but these still need the spade connectors at the dynamo itself.
