Very satisfied, checked, perfectly seated, always warm up start from the center, and when the tin melts and saves the twisted connection, only then go to the edges of the shrink, otherwise the air from the center will not leave, if the edges immediately heat and sit down. This shrinkage is blue under the cable outer diameter is 3mm, but it shrinkable and thin cable is 1.5mm
Tubes according to the description, spike normal, blow dryer more than 250 deg. It is better not to expose
I've worked on electronics for years - I have soldered / heatshrinked wires of all sizes - I have used different crimp connectors over the years as well. I did not expect these would work as well as they show on the videos. I was wrong.
They work very well. I had the best results using a heat gun. I tried a lighter. This worked somewhat. Or mostly? But I was not happy with how it looked and some of the solder looked to have not melted. I then tried a torch. I got it too hot and it melted (my fault). I started from scratch with a heat gun (at about 650 F). It took longer than I expected at first, but the finished product was near perfect and way less effort than any other means of joining wires like this. I have to (shockingly) admit this is a great product. I will keep these around from now on!
I just rewired the lights on my trailer and used these for all the connections. I used them two different ways. Where I could, I slid the connector on the wire, soldered it with a soldering iron and then moved the connector into place and used the heat gun. On a few of the connections it wasn't convenient to pre-solder so I just used the connector and heat gun for the only connection. I payed close attention to the solder and it seemed to flow well and create a strong joint. I really liked them for wires that are exposed to the elements. So far so good, I will update this review if I start having problems with any of the connections.
Well my first couple of tries didn’t go well but I had never used any before once I got through the learning curve on how to heat them and use alligator clips to hold them instead of your fingers then they were awesome very clean look and I can’t believe how strong the are I will never use a crimp fitting again. I can’t wait to see if you guys come out with ones with different ends on them for other applications what a great idea thank you John Fishburn
WHY DIDN'T I KNOW ABOUT THIS PRODUCT YEARS AGO... You will love these connectors . I found out after a couple of times what i think helps them work a little better ids after you put your wires in the connectors gently crimp down on the connection then apply your heat. Go easy with the heat and you will get a great connection. What i think is also great is that they shrink tho the wire and are water proof.. WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT..
Hello everyone, greetings. This review is for the wire connectors. I hope my review is something you will like and find helpful.
Let me first write here what are the steps used to utilize these connectors. This is also found on the cover of the product case.
1- Select the right size connector for the wires. (choose an appropriate size connector that fits)
2- Insert the wires to the connector from both ends. (transparent connector helps to check the connection whether it's done correctly)
3- Heat the shrinkage slowly and evenly with a heat gun. (At this point, I use a flat plier to evenly press on the ends of the connector)
I use these at work to connect computer wires on desktops. I also grow some plants and led lights are fantastic for them. Sometimes, I have to extend the wires to a degree. That's where I use these connectors. It's really easy to use and so far so good.
The connectors package comes with 10 white, 23 red, 12 blue and 5 yellow connectors. Total 50 connectors, it has. That's all I have for right now. I hope this was helpful for you. Thank you very much.
I needed to rewire a car stereo amplifier that I had previously use screw clips. I was worried that I was going to need to spend all day at a bench soldering around 30 connections together with heat shrink.
These things are so awesome because it includes everything all in one. I was able to rewire the whole amplifier in less than 30 minutes with the only tools needed were wire strippers and a lighter. It's awesome that the casing is clear so that you can see when the solder melts into the connection. So far it's been about 6 months and my amplifier is still working flawlessly so the connections are holding up fine. For future wiring jobs I will consider using these first for how convenient they are.
I was initially skeptical but hopeful when I ordered this. My wife ran over the lawnmower cord and the way this cord is attached, you must repair and not replace. When I received this I quickly did a test sample. I used a BBQ lighter, not a heat gun, I pushed the wires into each other and added a bit of flux to make things flow easily. Anytime you solder you should add flux. It's cheap and flux works very well. I started at the ends to stabilize the wire. Then I worked the center to join the wires. I kept heating the center until the solder changed to a darker color. Once done I finished the rest of the connector. I did not touch the flame to the plastic sleve except where you solder. That area got some carbon buildup but wiped off easily. This is a solid connection. I've included a picture of my test piece. The only reason I touched the center area was to just get this as hot as possible. So the solder melted but the shrink casing did not. Gosh I wish I invented this stuff.
Purchase these connectors to repair my motorcycle.
Well designed and made connectors. Comes with a range of sizes to fit various applications.
120 pieces can be used for a long time.
Overall a 5-star product.
