Default Replacing battery wires on Reedy 510r

What on earth are these things soldered on with? My 80W iron isn't able to melt the solder, even at 900F. Am I missing something? Surely they're not silver-soldered on there?!

Lead free, and your sinking alot of that heat into the body of the ESC.

Make sure your applying a good leaded solder and flux when your desoldering.

Cut wires short, they act as a heat sink. Get a Weller gun. Medium one

Got it done in the end. Borrowed a more powerful iron and more liberally applied leaded solder. Was a bit of an eye-opener, for sure.

Hopefully you didn't cook anything.
