How big of a charger do I need?

"melting sold onto the bare copper.

Than flux again and inside the lug. Crimp it on and solder it full."

Marine cable for use on a boat will be tinned , not bare, so will the terminal end..

It takes huge heat to get a #4 cable as a starter would have , so with a torch the insulation has a hard life.

After being tinned the cable is SOLID and as easy to crimp as a copper bolt.

Crimp, and dunk is the least hassle , and does the best job.
