Hi Guys

Which is the best crimp connector type to join 6mm cable.

I assume 'Butt' to join the cable if there is enough length but if not what do you experts use?

Multiple 'Butt' , Spade or Bullet crimps.

Thanks in advance.

Yellow butt crimps on the Live and Neutral and a blue butt crimp on the CPC (or earth).

Spades and bullets are more of an automotive thing (allthough you do see them in 230v applications, but only normally with relatively small loads).

If there isn't enough length then you will need to use 2 butt crimps and a small length of suitable cable. I would never use spade or bullet crimps on mains electricity.
