How to Choose Wire and Heat Shrink Terminals and Connectors
Check the rating of each connector
Each connector has a rating in amps. Choosing the wrong amperage can ruin a repair, so make sure to look at the rating closely.
Don’t get tied up in jargon
Labeling can be confusing. Flip past all the marketing jargon and look at the technical specifications to get to the meat of what the product can do.
Look carefully at your options
All terminals are not created equal. Some may do the same job, but they might not be built to the same quality standards. Once you know what type you need, then you should look carefully at your distribution options to find the best choice for you.
Work with a smart distributor
A smart distributor will know what connectors you use and will be able to guide you towards suitable alternatives if a part suddenly becomes unavailable or you need a rush order of something that's low on stock. If you find yourself needing a specific part quickly, having a good distributor is crucial.
