Battery Cable Crimper

Buy a small propane torch and some large solder strip your insulation back 1 to 2 inches from your connector place in a vise or vice grips heat the connector apply the solder until it fills the connector. You will not get a better connection.

Re: Battery Cable Crimper

I soldered mine just like above. Remember to slide your heat shrink on the wire before you solder it in case it will not fit over your connector. Just melt the solder into the connector until is full and shove the wire into it. Wait about 30 seconds or so before you release it. I use a steel bench vise to hold the connector vertical so you can fill it up.
