New cable lug crimper

Since I'm redoing my battery location therefore the heavy 1/0 wiring, I've decided instead of soldering those big lugs like they are done now, to spend a few bucks and get one of these gadgets. They look like they will do the job, depending on where you buy them can be pricy - though I didn't pay anywhere near the usual advertised price.

Anyone have any experience with them?
