Getting ready to finally do this, where's the best place to get Aluminum wire? Odd for me to go looking for Aluminum over Copper but in this cause I see the need. Also anyone see a problem soldering the wire to the core as opposed to using a hose clamp, I have Ag ,Pb and Pb free ?
Solder, brazed, or welded; it should all be the same for corrosion resistance, as a ~zero resistance connection.
(Unless someone sux at making them, lol.)
I'd solder it; and if it's soldered, copper or aluminum won't matter. I'd wash off the flux, after, tho.
I'd use lead solder, it's more durable near a battery; silver is great, it makes it stick really well, but high silver causes issues in weather.
As long as everything is connected together, it won't corrode.
