If you're having problems with Anderson Powerpoles, then they've been incorrectly fitted, or are fakes.
They do NOT need soldering, unless it's to a PCB. Crimping is actually more reliable than soldering, provided that the approved crimp tool is used.
Elecraft use the correct tools to fit Powerpoles to cables that they supply. Others may not.
All of the issues I've ever seen with Powerpoles is either badly fitted crimps (usually a cheap crimp tool used), the wrong tab for the cable and shell, or counterfeit powerpoles.
