This is a guide to crimping lug terminals onto battery cables.
In this tutorial I will show you how to crimp, solder and adhesive heat shrink lug terminals onto battery cables. The proper tools for the job will be highlighted. The finished cable will have a very long service life, conduct electricity very well and be extremely waterproof. These cables are suitable for use in hostile environments such as marine and off-road automotive. Please leave any requests for similar tutorials in the comments section below. I specialise in marine electrics, Lowrance, Simrad, B&G, Yamaha, Mercury, MerCruiser and Yanmar service, repair and NMEA2000 integration.
