Home Forums General Discussion Fire safety with 12V Re: Fire safety with 12V


Very good advice

12 volt is more of a fire hazard than higher ac voltages

all my 12 volt conections are soldered even my crimp ring terminals are soldered as well.

I spent many years installing accesories into cars,trucks and boats and if it wasnt soldered it would be back one day coroded or burned out or causing some sort of wierd fault.

if you have any twist conections or crimp conections that now need to be redone you may now have to use an acid core solder as they are likely coroded beyond soldering with standard rosin core electrical solders
