How do these ends go on? A customer brought them in for his batterys, they all have post on them. And has nice color cable for them. I tried to crimp one but it wan too hard , so I know I might have to sodier them . Does any use there or have in the past?

hold it wit some pliers and hold a torch on it, feed some solder in and fill it 1/2 way full of solder then stick the cable in and let cool. Some will leak out but better to have too much than too little ;)

What out cause those are most of the time made out of LEAD AND A PLUMING TORCH MAY MELT IT . WATCH OUT . look at it close cause if it starts melting it with turn to water-like fast
