    Almost 50 cents per joint seems a little high to me.

    Yes, at a place I worked at previously we used them on commercial airline cabin pressure controllers. They do work good and are convenient but like Don said 50 cents each is pretty high.

    I use a different type.....It's Crimp /Shrink unit....Available in all different configurations....I do Marine electrical work.

    I despise the stand automotive crimp connectors...... The connectors are open to the elements on the ends and allow corrosion to enter the wire and connection.

    I only use the crimp and shrink connectors. They have never failed me. Price them out at Fastenal might be some what cheaper.

    Thanks for the replies. I just was making sure that wasn’t some Chinese garbage.

    Wow .50 per connector was expensive. These are $1.50 per?

    I use only Crimp/Heat Shrink/Solder connectors. All 3 in one. They are about 1.00 a piece. I'm not skimping on wire connections.

    I'd use them for inline wire connections. Butt solders are a pain to do correctly.

    I use quality, uninsulated crimped butt connectors with a quality crimping tool, with adhesive lined heat shrink over the top.

    X2. Much more cost effective solution.

    Seems gimmicky for the layman.

    The big question is do you want to pinch pennies on something that could burn you car to the ground if it fails?

    They are okay, way cheaper on ebay, but the joint itself stays fairly flexible as the material is flimsy. To get the solder hot enough you almost have to melt the plastic. I use them very sparingly.
