I have had better luck finding the electrical connectors and wire I needed for high amp usage at West Marine or other discount marine stores. I live right next to a Home Depot so I start there for the basics but I prefer the marine heat shrink tubes and butt connectors(preglued). Marine terminal boxes, switches, buss bars, etc are pricey but choices run from 30amp up to 600amp (DC). Ours also has a wire section where you can use their cutter and crimper for the really big stuff ( 2-4 "0").
Good Luck.

My dad taught me to Western Union anything that was high load and soldered.

Strip off enough wire to tie a square knot then after the knot is cinched tight solder it. Then apply your BullDog tape and Shrink Wrap it.

Dad was a Wire Cheif out in the South Pacific in the early 1940's and when things got rough he didn't like to have his wires come unhitched.

The longer a square knotted wire is under tension the tighter the splice gets and the wire itself will fail before the splice lets go.
