Thanks for the input. I am pretty much a rank amateur on the hardware side of things. I've already managed loose an inch or more off the pigtails trying to put some Anderson Power Poles on them. Hadn't occurred to me to simply solder longer wires to the pigtails. I assume that I could go to a larger gauge of wire which would allow me to have a somewhat more robust termination to the connectors I want to try. That 28 gauge wire in the pigtails is awfully fragile to a fumble thumbs like me.
If you have a part number for the pig tails and a source I'd appreciate hearing more from you.

Be careful to get the right polarity, to match the pins on the DRAWS board. We have seen some with the black and red wires switched from what DRAWS is expecting.
We are looking at some options, so don't overdo it on buying a bunch of pigtails.
BTW, pigtails are meant to be just that, a little solder and shrink tubing and connect it to a longer cable with whatever connector you like on the other end.

Does anyone have a source for the power pigtails
for the DRAWS? I'll likely need a few as I learn how to put
Anderson Power Pole connectors on the non-terminated end of the
pigtail. The one I got with the DRAWS is already getting too
short as I fail my way through to having enough experience and
technique to achieve success.
