[QUOTE=thepiper92;946918]Power poles are good, unless you get solder outside of the wire seating, or it comes out the bottom, making it difficult to seat the contacts into the plastic housings. What is good about this is you can solder on positive and negative completely separate from each other and shrink tubes are never needed.[/QUOTE

Anderson Power Pole connector terminals are CRIMPED, not soldered. I suppose you could solder a crimped connection, but the crimped terminal has better continuity than solder ever can.

APP does have solder type terminals, I've got some, but much prefer the crimped type terminals. Both the solder type, and crimp type terminals fit into the same plastic shell.

Also, since the terminals are crimped, there is no problem with soldering your wires to a terminal mounted in plastic, and deforming the plastic with heat.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
