Heat shrink is pretty quick to do. I have a little lighter that is made for heat shrink. I will post a link if I can find the page for it.

I need to get one, I just use a soldering iron or a lighter.

This is it, they are only $10 and you fill them with butane.

Features include:

"Hot blower- good for shrink wrapping wires"

Got mine at ace. Takes it a few seconds to get going and burning nice and clean, but once it does it works really well.
