好的，现在我真的很困惑，或者至少我已经清楚为什么我对 @Stepandwolf 和他的问题感到困惑。
我回去看看我从 Overkill 那里得到的原始平衡线束。可能有点难以看清，但如果仔细观察，您应该会发现它是由 AWG 22 电线组成的。

所以问题似乎是 Steve / Overkill 已经从使用 22 AWG 电线转变为 26 AWG 电线。我不知道为什么，除非是为了节省成本。
I still haven't crimped on my BMS connectors as I kept hoping to find a better solution. Dealing with that super skinny wire is a pain for crimping. Soldering, no problem, but crimping....not so much.Yes, Iwiss make a ton of different crimpers, unfortunately you really do need to match the terminal/crimper/wire combination precisely.

I have took one of my spare busbars and drilled a hole in it, and used a tap and die set to make a hole for a screw. This method could be used to get an open end connector or other type of connector sized for a 26 AWG wire. I think most of us are having trouble because there is not a 1/4" to 26 AWG open end crimp available, so we take the M6 which is made for a much thicker wire and make do. I have a 26 AWG open end crimper, but when I use it on the M6 crimp, it bends it:I have doubled up the wire, tripled the wire, quadrupled the wire, different connectors, different crimpers, and when I am done, I either crimped so hard to smash things into oblivion or the wire pulls right out. Must be me as so many of you succeed without failure, but then even Andy screwed up one of them
This.This is a gross oversimplification of industry practice. Crimping connectors is faster and cheaper than soldering. Crimping must be done carefully and good practices followed; soldering is no different. Crimping CAN be more reliable for fine wire in high-vibration environments like aircraft or automotive, but only IF the properly sized terminal is used. For stationary equipment with no vibration or mechanical stress, crimping THEN soldering with a minimal amount of solder (don't let it wick inside the wire insulation) can give the most reliable connection--especially if the crimp terminal is larger than the actual wire diameter.
The point is to exclude oxygen and moisture while allowing flexing and thermal expansion. Always allow some slack in the wire. Very tightly harnessed wiring with no slack is a bad idea generally, except in very specialized applications.
