The wire connectors are stainless steel or plated copper. They're made of thicker metal and not cheap thin gauge stamped out junk and they come with thick clear or colored heat shrink on the wire end.
They cost more but you get what you pay for.
Jim is spot on.. I use a place in our area called West Marine whenever I need electrical supplies for the cars or bikes. Auto supply stores and stereo shops have junk!
