Here's something you may want to try for soldering - I use an Ancor butane torch. I've found if you strip 3/4" off each wire, then wash you hands thoroughly (to avoid grease contamination), then wrap the wires together as tight as possible and heat the connection from the bottom for ~3 seconds, then touch rosin core solder to the top of the connection, it works perfectly. I also like Ancor adhesive lined shrink tube to finish the job.
