You can solder wires together, but it will have more resistance than just buying new, longer wire.

You can charge with the battery connected to the electronics if they are off, but it's generally not reccomended. I only re-peak my cells connected.

I would get an adjustable temp hakko, they typically sell from 75-125.....easily worth it and a good soldering iron can be used for numerous other things around the house(assuming yer somewhat handy)

Later EddieO
Go here... great prices really quality soldering irons...

Nobody mentioned to use sand paper or a dremel to sand the cells down . . . . . Any electrical flux is good, some types of solder have flux "inside" them already, i.e. Deans.
