As soon as I opened the cable, I noticed it was only a couple feet long, which is not very long, but I was happy anyway.. The clamps also don't open up far enough to connect to a battery terminal securely.
I took it outside and plugged it up to my compressor, popped the hood of my car and as soon as I opened the clamp the positive wire fell out of the clamp.
Once I inspected the wire and the clamp, you could clearly see there was almost NO solder on the wire, and what little bit was on it was a "cold joint". The cable was also not crimped to the clamp like it was suppose to be (it looks like someone forgot to crimp it) , which is another reason it came apart.
I went ahead and pulled the sleeve off the negative clamp and noticed it WAS crimped (unlike the positive clamp), but the solder was also very little and cold-jointed.
Both clamps were also forming rust around the solder connections where the wire goes.
LUCKY FOR ME, I own a soldering station, so I disassembled both clamps, cleaned up the rust, re-soldered them on PROPERLY and THEN crimped them. They work perfect now and should never come loose again.
This is the first time I've ever rated a product 1 star, but when it literally falls apart as soon as you remove it from the box , it deserves 1 star.
I'm just glad I wasn't stuck somewhere on the road with a flat when it fell apart on me. Luckily I ALWAYS test my equipment before I rely on it for emergency use.
I wouldn't recommend this product unless you own a soldering iron and want to take the gamble of fixing it yourself or returning it to amazon.
EDIT: I bought another set of these cables, and they were properly crimped and soldered, I will upgrade my rating from 1 star to 2 stars, but RoadPro needs to improve their Quality Control.
you get is what my JPG shows.
The product has been cheapened by shortening the wires by half (now 1 foot)
by the time you spread the wires apart enough for the clamps to reach both
terminals on a standard sized 12 volt car battery, you have just taken up half
the wire length which leaves you 6 inches left over.
I have not stripped the insulation of the wires to check gauge, but it can't be anymore
than 18; 16 at the most.
While the product does work, you would have to use it right on top of the battery, which is
OK for me, as I only use it for test purposes.
As far as the whole "Front panel illumination" line, I can't figure out why that is in the
The product comes in a cheap clear plastic bag, NOT A THERMAL FORMED PACK! as is shown, so
the product you see is not the product you get.
Again, see my JPG of what you ACTUALLY GET.
Due to the low price, it is not worth returning, but you should be aware of these changes.
The wire gauge was adequate and I noted no heating of the wires for the 15+ amps this pump draws.
I will say that plugging in a cigarette plug is quite hard.. you may think you're going to break something, but it does work.
The unit appears to be designed to be more or less permanently mounted as it has a "water cap" over the plug, but I'd certainly not use it for that purpose.
Some might desire longer wires. They are about 2 foot long, but I suppose no length is going to be "right" for everyone. It was adequate for me. A 12-foot extension set is available for those who might want LONG wiring RoadPro RP-203EC 12V 12' Extension Cord with Cigarette Lighter Plug
I would have given 5 star if they had heavier duty clamps
PS: I noted someone asked if you ran the engine or not.. it doesn't matter as the adapter has no idea if you are or not :) .. it carries the same amps either way unless you have a VERY LOW battery :D
