    Share lang. Ordered some Scotch Lock Quick Splice cable snaps. For easy electrical DIY. These are fast and easy way to splice into existing wires. No cutting, no stripping, no soldering required. Comes with male quick disconnect for safe disconnection when needed.

    Red: 22-16 AWG, 10A max
    Blue: 16-14 AWG, 15A max
    Yellow: 12-10 AWG, 24A max

    may mga napanood ako dati sa youtube.

    ang sabi sa disadvantage nyan e, di mo na malalaman kung tumama nga ang koneksyon kundi buksan muli yang "quick splice/connect" na iyan. which is, aapektuhan uli yung integrity ng koneksyon.

    tsaka ano ba talaga ibig sabihin nung "no stripping" required? pupwersahin nung connector na isaksak yung mismong wire through the insulation?.

    pero sa aking sariling pananaw (at munting karanasan sa electrical works), mas maganda pa rin ang soldered connection.

    From the looks of it, mukhang may ngipin na kakagat sa wire, bubutas sa insulation tapos yung ang magiging dugtungan ng bagong linya.

    Agree ako, better ang soldered connection. Ang naadress lang yata nito is yung pangit na dikit ng electrical tape

    pero ang tanong, magkakaroon pa rin kaya ng full splice between the two wires gamit iyang quick splice kit na iyan. duda ako. baka pagmulan pa iyan ng sunog dahil sa loose / incomplete connection.

    meron naman shrink wrap kung ayaw ng tape. nanghihina kasi ang dikit at tension ang electrical tape kapag tumagal.

    Insulation displacement connectors. Not good with vibrating parts.

    if it ain't manually spliced and soldered, it can loosen over time.

    even uhura in star trek said as much..

    The metal insert in the connector is designed to cut through the insulation and make the connection between the two wires.



    After which, you plug the male quick disconnect that has the other wire you need to tap to the existing wire.

    I've used these types of connectors before. It lasted the life of the car. But never use it for high-current loads.

    As with all things, it depends on the quality of the product bro. If you buy cheap, substandard products, then it is bound to fail. If you buy quality products, then it will last a life time. Hindi lang ito for the young ones or for shortcuts.
