Default Soldering Question..

Hey guys I want to switch from soldering in my batts to using these gold pin connectors. But I am not sure what is the best way to to it.

Should I tin the battery wire and they heat it up with the soldering gun and then stick it in the hole fast? Do I put solder in the hole? I just never soldered anything like this before(into a hole).

Any advice for the easiest way to do this?

This is what I am using..

Tin the wire, tin the hole. Hold the wire at the hole, apply heat to the connector and the solder on the connector and the wire will liquify. Push the wire in, then remove the heat and hold the wire absolutely motionless until the solder cools and solidifies. The solder joint should look shiny when cool. If it looks dull or "grainy" it's a bad joint.

I always solder the barrel on to the battery, then put the mail connector in about 25% into the barrel connector, that holds it in place plenty enough whilte you're tinning the hole and sliping the wire in.

Just cause I don't want to accidentally have solder spill out and solder it onto the barrel ...you can proabbly do all the way in.

One more thing is there any special way to solder the barrel onto the battery? I guess you would do it a certain way to not get solder into the inside of the barrel right..?

Yes I am a team driver. Are you sponsered by anybody?

I just dont like soldering in general. I posted this because I wanted to know how to do it so I can get the least resistance as possible without solder everywhere.

Of course I could have just tried it but I wanted to know if there were any good ways of doing it. Plus I would have asked my team mate and pit partner Mike Haynes but he is down at the birds tearing it up..

Here is how I do it but my main reason for doing it this way is so my batteries work in my JRXS sedan. I just converted everything over to corally plugs since I use the same packs for on and off road.
