Soldered alligator clip leads?

Post by ShowMaster » Mon Sep 12, 2016 3:06 am

Anyone see a link for soldered clip leads! Those that seem so nice and colorful and inexpensive, are crimped (badly) and if you're lucky, a few strands of wire. Pull any current and you wonder where all your voltage went at the clip end. I've soldered many in my time but even the clips fail. I wasted some time recently troubleshooting a project because I accidentally mixed some unsoldered leads with my others. I usually burn a S in the clip cover so I know it's been soldered. I didn't check.
I thought I'd ask before I buy some new leads and solder them. I'm thinking I'll have to buy some good stranded colored wire and find some good clips and covers in the end and make my own. What a bother!
Thanks for any solutions that may include clic and buy and use

I actually found soldered multicolored clip leads at All Electronics in Los Angeles.
I was so surprised that they are soldered.
