Soldering, waterproofing question
I figure the best place to ask about this kind of thing is in this forum, although my question is an electric bike question.
I'm putting together an electric motor system for my bike, and the battery pack I bought doesn't come with a connector so I have to set up matching connectors on battery and on the motor wires. I want to make the connection waterproof.
I've heard there are tube shaped pieces of "shrink wrap" that one can use on a connection like this. (maybe with some grease or glue to help prevent water intrusion.
What sort of store would I look in to find these shrink tubes? I didn't notice any in Radio Shack or Home Depot... I'd prefer not to buy online and wait for shipping although I will if I have to.
I've also heard there's some type of glue which can be used to seal connections such as where insulated wiring comes through the hole in my electric motor's casing (or my light's casing). Anybody know what product I need, and where I can get it?
