    Sound mate, simple fix on those to save money, worth polishing the little triangular contact plate too, as that gets a bit tarnished with the arcing.

    Its a crap design really, but easy to fix.

    If you solder it, clean it as much as you can, and a bit of plumbing flux also helps to get the solder to stick, as you need to be pretty rapid not to overheat and start to melt the plastic around it.
