They are designed to be used with solder. They are bare therefor the best to be used by heat shrink tubing. Secondly, there is the vinyl ring terminal. They are made of pure copper. They are the type of the rings that are found in different sizes. They serve the same purpose as a non-insulated ring. There is also the high-temperature rings.

Customers of such products are not cost orientated. They are customers that are concerned about the quality of the product more than the price. Cheap products can be mistaken to be of poor quality. The price of the product should be purely dependent on the material and the size of the ring.
