These are ALUMINUM wires with copper plating on surface and clamps are steel with this copper plating as well. Poor quality

First of all, let's say that I'm a total rookie on cars and I've successfully jumped my car with this jumper. That means two things...
1. This jumper works...
2. This jumper easily works...:)))))
I have a Honda accord 2004 and an Audi A6 2002...First, I parked Audi by the side of Honda. (Honda's battery wasn't working). Then I connected this jumper, kept Audi engines on, and ignited Honda...Then roam! My Honda started. I did everything according to the instructions printed on the box. I suppose it would be extremely easy for most of men, but I'm a girl who had no idea about ignition in the first place. What I used to do is call AAA road service if anything happens to my car. So if this works on me, I assume it would work for almost everyone else. Therefore, I don't have any complaints about this product and would recommend it to anyone who wants to keep a jumper at hand. :)))

Although the product would probably work fine for it's intended use, they are NOT 100% copper like the description states. I'm not sure what model number the other reviewers who claim they are 100% copper received, but even the model number says "CCA." Unfortunately I didn't notice that until it was too late. I purchased these based on the description stating "100% copper."

CCA stands for Copper Clad Aluminum which is a cheap substitute for real copper wire. Like I said, as jumper cables they will be fine for the price, but I purchase then for the wire...not as jumper cables.

Already used once and the extra length is a big plus. No need to worry about which side of the engine bay the battery is on.

Good length for what I needed; heavy duty enough. Pricing was just right. I would buy this jumper cable again.

Not much to say on these types of items other than they do the job or they don't.....and these came in handy for me within the first month of owning them. The teeth are not perfect as they can be uneven while attaching to the battery posts, but the cables seem to be pretty heavy-duty and worked well.
I'm satisfied with the purchase.
Would I order the same brand? Yes.
Would I order them from Amazon again? Yes.
Would I order the same length? Yes.
Would I order the same AMP rating (500a)? No. I'd go for higher, so that I had a bit more headroom when jumping higher-AMP vehicle batteries, specifically trucks.

These cables are well constructed, solid copper and the jaws are strong enough and shaped well for use on side-post batteries. Also, these cables are long enough that you can use them parking front-to-back or beside the other car, even if the batteries are on opposite sides. This was a big factor for me. These are for my daughter's car and I didn't want her having to face the wrong way on the road side or anything. It's not always easy to pull two vehicles front-to-front.
