No offense taken but I've been building battery cables for 20 years and soldered everyone.
The cable shown was not even soldered together I just heat shrinked over it for example.
Not sure where you heard never to solder a cable but if it werks for you to crimp that's ok to.
Not sure why they sell me soldering pellets and solder on ends either?
