I do not recommend large gauge pigtails. You don’t want the connectors on the board to be the point of failure. What we need is a case design that has a securely mounted powerpole or barrel connector. Then the pigtail won’t matter.

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.
