Dean's ultra connectors are widely accepted as excellent and can take at least 100amps so they state.

The insulation can melt if allowed to get too hot.
It is better to use a hot soldering iron quickly.

Much safer to use a heat shunt on Deans too :-)) - they can ,and do, go out of alignment by using the other half of the connector ;D

Try the ones from Giant Cod - they dont melt AND they have ridges moulded in so they are easier to grip.
