Just fitting Viola mart rear wheel kit and need to extend the battery wire coming from battery. Which wire do I need to buy and which connectors are best?

Thanks

14awg silicone wire 32a capable or 12awg 45a capable depends on the controller current, directly solder and heat shrink the joints.

Thanks, what would I look for on controller to find info needed?

And please could you recommend a soldiering iron to get me going? Thanks

The current is written on the label of the controller, or you can show us what Voilamart kit you have. You can buy the wire on Ebay - and the heatshrink.
