    For me the hardest part of wire soldering is to remember put shrink tube before soldering those two wires.

    Always connect black and red wires. Can never go wrong.

    As a soldering pro I very much approve of this. Your method is pretty much foolproof. A tip: have some molten solder on the soldering iron tip to act as a heat conductor. That way you avoid the long heat up times like you had in your example.

    I bought a soldering station last year. It changed my whole view on soldering. It never takes that long to heat up, and it is amazing how easy it is to solder now. Also, always use small solder. It heats up and melts faster and makes life easier. Great video as always.

    for me as someone who has never done anything in life in terms of electronics this is a very important video for me to watch at 4 am instead of sleeping yes :)

    The dab on your iron helps to transfer heat and also cleans your iron a little with the rosin.

    Don't forget to put the shrink tube on the wires before you solder if you can't slide them on whenever you're done soldering.

    Another tip, is to use silicone insulated wire when ever you can. Plastic insulated wires can melt while you're soldering or using the heat gun (especially true with very thin wires). Plus, the waterproofing and general heft between silicone and shrink tubing is much better than with plastic.

    You can find heat shrink tubing that has glue on the inside. It oozes out and seals at the edge. Also I like to get a high shrink ratio so its more versatile, such as soldering two wires on one side to a single wire on the other. That way a larger tube can shrink around the single wire, yet be large enough to slide over the two wires.

    Your videos are all pretty good and I enjoy watching these. Very informative and detailed! I will say when using those ring terminals, I do the best I can to solder the connection point just so it helps reduce the chances of it getting loose over time, granted it can't be done every time. But it seems to work well for me when I'm able to


    The reason you tin the iron before touching the connection is so the heat can transfer better to the wires that you are soldering. There’s the potential of way more hot surface area (to melt the solder on top of the wires) when the solder is on the iron as opposed to just having the solderless iron try and heat up the wires

    I must not be the only one disturbed by a tutorial showing a red and black wire being soldered together

    If the other ends of the wires are permanently attached to devices, don't forget, step 1 is to thread the shrink tubing on first. If you have to cut apart your tediously soldered wiring harness once you won't likely forget again. The silicone is a great idea I wasn't aware of.

    Nice joint! And, thanks for suggesting the dielectric silicon grease.

  • Rayall

    Great advice & clear precise demonstration, very useful for any wiring jobs

    Learned more then I've ever learned from my electric class, in this 1 video, thank you so much really appreciate it, keep it up

    That's a really great way to ensure joins won't break, but unfortunately it's a bit unrealistic in a lot of scenarios wherethe length of this solder joints is sometimes the whole wire length we have to work. In those cases what i do is try to peel the cables around the same length, make a cross, and twist them in opposite directions, which makes for a pretty solid joint as well in very tight spaces. I'd like to try and apply what was shown here though.

    I’ve always been a sloppy solderer ;)

    1. Live in a pool (create a flow of solder and keep it liquid)
