    Compupool CPSC48 longer cell cord

    About to install my CPSC48.
    I ordered the 15 foot cell cord with it, since the 6 footer is far too short for my install.

    The 15 foot cord came separate.
    I figured, no biggie, turn a few screws and attach the longer call cable.

    Welp, the cell cord is soldered to the system board.

    So, I need to break out the soldering iron to get this done.
    Not a huge deal, but I would have preferred it to be a screw/bolt on.

    Anyone else de-solder the 6 footer and solder in the longer 15 footer?
    Or did you just splice that bad boy?

    The site below recommends just using wire nuts. Does your controller look like that on the inside?

    Unless you are pretty talented on soldering, I wouldn't take the chance.

    I don't recommend wire nuts. Cell cables handle high currents. Any imperfections in the connection will create a lot of heat, which will destroy the cable and whatever it is attached to after a while. I'd de-solder the old cable and the solder the new one in. But if you want, you can splice the cable, but you need to solder the splice.
