Alumiconn electrical connectors were just the right items to join aluminum to copper wiring.
best of all, the shipping was free and came right to my house within a few days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vbwood The less expansive way to make approved Alum wire connections
The connector is well made, and easy to use. Size is a little larger then I'd like.

Safely splice aluminum to copper. Just follow specified torque requirements.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B5G Excellent for aluminum to copper
Significantly cheaper than other options
Easy to install
Similar size to purple wire nuts
Cost of torque screwdriver (but worth it!)
When we bought our house, we were told that it had been pigtailed for Al-Cu. I quickly discovered that only about 50% of the house had been done. (And the previous owners had been ripped off by the electrician. I have the documentation to prove it.) I started doing research because I hate wire nuts, and the Cop-Alum solution is very, very expensive. I found these on the site for the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They no longer recommend wire nuts. They recommend these or the very expensive Cop-Alum.
The instructions contain steps for using a torque screwdriver, or a regular screwdriver. I decided to go for the torque specs. I am going to do my entire house, so it was worth the $200. Just make sure you get one with a calibration certificate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joylove Much safer than wire nuts.
Hey they aren't cheap but if it's a few dollars that prevents you burning down the house then it's money well spent.
These have conductive goo inside (probably petroleum jelly) and are certified for connecting copper to aluminium.
The manufacturer says you can torque hem with the approved screwdriver or turn down the screen until it touches the metal then add a turn. Check their website for the exact instructions and a free sample.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cliffhanger801 Great Product, Best Price
This is the only thing I can find as a DIY that meets my local electrical code for copper-clad aluminum wiring junctions. The purple wire nuts with anti-oxidant in them are known for melting down and causing fires because they're joining 2 dissimilar metals (copper and aluminum). Some say the aluminum is coated with the copper and isn't a concern. This wire connector eliminates that argument by allowing the different terminals for each wire/type of metal. The one con is that they are bulky. You can't put as much into boxes with these connectors as you can regular copper wiring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joeg9100 Latest In aluminum wire repair
I have a home with Aluminum wiring. The pigtailing to copper has failed in some parts from years ago, this product helped repair the connections.
You need to use the torque driver to get consistent results. I Recommend professional installation, Advanced DYI'ers can do it with the torque drivers and some practice. Al is soft and creep can still make connection loose you need to check twice and make sure wire is all the way in the connector before you torque it down.
