Using Heat Shrink Tubing & Hooking Up Alligator Clips To A Solar Panel

In this video I show you a professional solar panel I purchased, and since I only plan to use the solar panel as a temporary solar panel for different projects, I’m going to install some alligator clips on the leads so I can easily hook up the solar panel to devices and unhook it. To complete this simple task, I also wanted to use heat shrink tubing instead of just regular electric tape to hide my connections. This is a very easy project that almost anyone could do, and not with solar panels but with a wide range of devices that use DC connections. For my full video on how to build a solar panel from scratch visit: If you wish to purchase this solar panel, I will be posting the link on my blog at http If you have any questions feel free to visit our forums at Solar Tech Town.
