    What size heat shrink should I purchase?

    I wanted to purchase some of the XT90 S to attach a battery I have to my electric Bike kit, I watched the awesome video on here showing how to attach, what size heat shrink tubes would I need?

      Yeah but I think the OP wants the h/s has to fit over the xt90 plug ends. 3/4" h/s will go over the plugs.

      OP - h/s is fairly cheap. Buy a good length of several sizes from a 1/4" up to 1 1/2". You'll find lots of uses for it and get a heat gun if you don't already have one.

      Electrical supply stores should have 48" pieces - in colors too, even clear.

        If getting a variety pack you want 3:1 marine grade adhesive lined. This will fit damn near everything you might need it for. I have heard good things about mulwark brand.

          That's what I get: triple heat shrink with adhesive on eBay. I buy a lot of black and a bit of red in 3:1 with adhesive. The stuff is pretty rigid after application, but I use 2 or 3 layers (fanning out) for waterproofing. The adhesive sure inspires confidence in its waterproofing capability. Even though I buy a lot of black, I am still always running out of the sizes that I need in black.

          I supplement my black "3:1 with adhesive" (size) variety packs with various larger sizes, each larger size ordered separately on eBay. Sometimes you have to have a large enough size to fit over large connectors.

          It is hard to find an affordable "3:1 with adhesive" pack with a variety of both colors and sizes so I buy 2:1 without adhesive multicolor variety packs on Amazon for colors other than black and red.

          It is always super handy to have multiple colors and sizes on hand. I have had to halt projects waiting for just the right size and color heat shrink to arrive...sometimes from China.
