Is there a good way to check for cold solder joints? I have read some articles on problems with cold solder joints, How can you check for them before they become a problem?

It is easiest to "see" while you are soldering, but after the fact look for a dull, almost porous, gray surface that has not flowed well between the two joints. If unsure, resolder. When soldering, you want smooth flow, shinny surface in all areas while hot and an undisturbed connection while cooling. Ample solder and plenty of heat really helps the task on the larger joints, such as batteries with 10 gage wire.
