Adding Terminals

Overview Pic

 

 

 We have found that adding terminals to the wire leads of the 4AA battery pack, which increases the surface area, works the best. To do this you will need a battery pack, wire stripper/terminal crimper, and 2 fork (or spade) terminals.

 

 

 

Crimped Pic

 

 

A properly crimped connection, which physically secures the wire and makes an electrical connection.

 

 

 

Solder Pic

 

 

Optional, but highly recommended: Solder the terminals to improve physical and electrical strength of the connection.

 

 

 

 

Finished Terminals

 

 

Properly crimped and soldered terminals ready to be used.

 

 

 

 

 

We also crimp and solder terminals onto many of our Squishy Circuits components, such as this motor.
