Don’t salder the wire to the terminals. You can tin the wire with salder then attach it to the terminal with the screws provided. Tinning is just putting a light coat of solder on the bare wire ends. The solder when it cools makes the wire into one solid piece that you can bend around the screw before tightening and leaves you with a better connection.
