Personally, I always prefer to support authentic manufacturers, but over the last 8 years, I've spent sooooooooo much on Dean's Ultra plugs, I give up. I just bought 20 pairs of the decent knock-offs. They are nearly as heat-resistant, and easier to pull apart thanks to a textured surface.
The spring tabs breaking shouldn't be a major problem, since your BATTERY should always be FEMALE anyway (especially a Lipo, for the love of god!).
