    How reliable are these joints ? I would expect them to fail fairly soon through oxidation of the copper.

    In my testing I have found that the joins are waterproof but to combat any oxidization, you can use head shrink tape or sleeves to reinforce the join. You can also glue the heck out of the wire.

    keeping the glue close to the wires can help with waterproofing, if necessary.
