I have heard of brush on electrical tape being recommended over heat shrink tubing. Because it goes on as liquid it fills in the connection very well and when it hardens creates an exception seal.
Any experience with this?
Not with that method, but I know a guy who pulls shrink wrap over soldered joints and then heats it to seal the solder. Will be interesting to see how that method holds up. In the meantime, I also go with a good crimp.
