I would spring for the tool in the 2nd pic. I've got similar for home use It's a Klein J1005? overall length about 10". Has clean solid jaws and enough leverage for clean tight crimps. The one in pic 1 will work if it's all you have to get rolling again but it's pretty much a junk tool. For home use and quality crimps I use the Klein. I've got one of the cheap junk ones I keep in the tool roll for emergency road repairs, better than nothing. I don't care how much shrink tube or electric tape you use...a bad connection is a bad connection.
