Note that all cargo containers give 125 liters of storage per half meter cube (small block) of space that they occupy. The connectors get 64 liters per small block. The weight of the container itself per liter of storage space decreases as the container gets larger. The takeaway is to use larger containers, and use connectors only where ship links are intended.
