    I always have a few in my backpack. I ride ratty vintage motorcycles. These things are amazing. One of those jet lighters are carefully melt them and you can have a decent soldering wire if anything goes wrong. For normal work, I'll do it properly, but for on the road, this stuff is epic.

    I like to start in the center because it pushes the air out and is less likely to tear/puncture. Also, for added strength I push the wires together so the strands are interlocked.

    I have to use these for the work I do on navy ships. They usually work but the 1% fail rate they tend to have at the amount I use them makes me wish I could just use a solder iron.

    These are times you meet something so good it revolutionises the products in your shop

    You got to be careful. You can melt the plastic open if you get it too hot...as I've had a few where the solder didn't melt

    These create a cold solder joint every time you use them they work great in an emergency but that’s all they should be used for

    These things are great and do a pretty good job of stabilizing the joint. However Just remember soldier joints can become brittle connections with time and temperature variations. In higher vibration situations mechanical connections (lugs, terminals, etc) are generally preferred. So sometimes those engine bay, under vehicle, etc connections last longer with the mechanical method.

    I use something very similar (solder sleeve) on aeroplanes too. You'd be surprized at how much condensation is a problem in a plane.

    I fell in love with those instantly fast forward a few months and they are constantly a point of failure on projects I used them on

    In order for the solder to bind to the copper, the copper would have to be heated way more than it could be through that sleeve. There's no way that connection is as good as a proper crimp. I agree that they would be handy in an emergency, or something non-critical, but I definitely wouldn't use those on my vehicle or around the house.

    Good if your in a pinch. I would recommend you check to see if the solder actually penetrated the copper strands or if it just melted over it. Would make for an interesting video

    I used those on my trailers, they're excellent!

    that is no substitute for a "western union splice" and a real soldering gun and shrink tubing.

    My experience Is that they're very technique sensitive....the video shows 'best case' result, but you will have many fails before u get it right.
