With all due respect, that's just sour grapes.

OP wasn't dissing other connection methods. OP wrote "...this might be of some use to you do it yourselfers here..." I sure could have used the soldered wire + heat shrink method last weekend working on wires in wagon tailgate where water could eventually be a problem.

geez calm down,

i never said anyone was saying one type of connection was better than another, i was just generaly stating that as long as the wires are snugly/securly connected and insulated any method will work.

Well OK.

I was just pointing out that the different methods aren't completely interchangeable.
For any given application some methods will stay connected and/or insulated longer or more thoroughly. So it's good to have a few different methods avaialble in your bag of tricks.

yea true. ive used all 3 and cant seem to notice a huge difference, but i do agree that heatsinking looks alot better but for stuff where looks dont matter well its up to whatever the user wants to do.
