Re: Crimping versus Soldering
Dielectric grease (which is an insulator as posted above) adds nothing to a good crimp done properly with heatshrink.
Does anyone use a "conductive" grease in their crimps? This is a link to the one sold by sailors solution:

I've never used it but I'm thinking it would help with the corrosion issue but reduce the mechanical strenth of the crimp because of a reduction in friction?
