Re: Waterproof Connectors For Solar Panels

I don't know if is an option in your case, but sometimes rather than a connector just leaving a little extra wiring length and cutting the wire and re-soldering is often a good solution if you only need to disconect them infrequently.
The joint will never give any trouble and soldering a joint and a bit of heat shrink does not take long. It is neat and foolproof.
