Regular light guage "60/40" solder sold at RatShack is fine. Use a 35W or so iron. Dip the bare copper wire in some soldering flux, heat the end of the wire and apply solder to the WIRE (not to the tip of the iron). Voila, done. Won't corrode, easier to feed into the various terminal clips and plugs, etc.
