    Heat shrink/solder connectors of all types have been in the industry for at least 20 years.. We used them exclusively to wire George Sweey's 8 second tube chassis GS back in the early 2000's..

    They are expensive, purchased in small quantities, typically about a buck a connector, vs pennies for the crimp stuff.

    Never made it far enough on the video to check out their pricing, but looks like a decent product.

    When I rewired my boat I bought those off amazon.. They were a pain to use in the boat itself. lots of fails On the bench they worked pretty good.
    Boils down to just where you are going to use them.. I prefer the ancor wire connectors ( marine supply ) ant the ancor wire...

    I build business jets for a living, and we use these “all weather connectors” (that’s what we call them) all over the plane. Once installed properly, they’re virtually failure proof. I found a supplier and got some for my garage. I installed a new stereo in my DD using them. Just have to make sure the splice connector is proper for the gauge wire you’re working with.
