THE Dr Marty’s Easy On Conductive Grease Review
I must admit to being a connector freak. It’s very satisfying when I can perfectly solder up a new set of uber connectors to my gear. I run good electronics in my cars, I am not going to waste one bit of power by using sub-par connectors.
While cruising the recent iHobby expo one of the people in the E-Power booth insisted that I try some of their Dr Marty’s Conductive Grease on my connectors. I’ve used others over the years that didn’t work worth a darn so I was hesitant, but finally agreed. I am glad I did, read on…

What Is It?: Having problems getting your connectors apart or together? Are your connectors hot after use? The Dr Marty’s conductive grease makes connectors slide together more easily.
Test Drivers: Cubby, Tim, Top Jimmy
Test Connectors: Various new and used Traxxas, Deans and Tamiya
Notes: I was told to use the grease sparingly so I applied a tiny portion to the connectors on my chargers. This resulted in all my packs and speedo’s getting a light coating. All my connectors were immediately much easier to pull apart and push together, the difference was remarkable.
Downsides: During our high flying antics at iHobby (jumping 15+ feet high and landing to concrete) we had a few connectors come loose from the g-forces, but during normal track driving we didn’t have that issue.
You may end up with a lot of dirt in the grease if you drive in a dusty/dirty environment.
The tube states “conductive grease” on it but after testing we think perhaps dielectric grease would be a more accurate description. During multiple tests we were unable to find proof of its conductivity. Feel free to prove us wrong (or right).
As with all of our stuff, if you see us at a bash, stop by and check out the vehicles we have with us. We may let you take a test drive, and at the very least get you some stickers!
Time To Bash – 9.5/10 -It takes only a few seconds to apply.
Performance- 6/10 – Dr Marty’s connector grease made all my connectors feel extra smooth but didn’t come through on its promise of “conductivity”.
Value- 9/10 – A tube only costs $3 and is bound to last for years.
Big Squid Rating – 8.2/10 - Tentacles.. Dr Marty’s grease will fix those sticky connectors of yours while barely putting a dent in your wallet, pick some up and give it a try. The feel of a perfectly smooth connector is one of the finer things in life, hence the reason Dr Marty’s grease has become an instant “must have” in my toolbox.
