Battery Terminal Solder Slugs
Battery terminal solder slugs were developed as a fast method for attaching a battery lug to a cable. A cost-efficient method that eliminates the need for and expensive crimping tool. Creates a rugged sealed connection for optimum performance. Slugs are color-coded for gauge size to industry standards. Select sizes from the drop down box.
How to use:
Strip cable so that the exposed copper reaches the battery terminal bottom
Apply several drops of flux to the exposed copper of the cable
Place the proper slug size into the battery terminal, and secure the battery terminal in a vice
Heat the base of the battery terminal with the slug inside using a propane torch or similar heat tool. As the battery terminal is heated, apply gentle downward pressure on the cable until the cable is inside the terminal. Remove heat source. Allow time for the connection to cool before handling
