5.0 out of 5 stars Might as well get the long ones...., November 1, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Coleman Cable 08662 25-Feet Heavy-Duty Booster Cables, 4-Gauge (Automotive)
It never fails, that when you need a jump, you are parked nose-in the parking space. With 25 foot cables, you don't need to push the car out. Plus, it doesn't matter what side the battery is on. AMAZON.COM sells 12, 16, 20 and 25 foot lengths. Compare the prices, and the 25 foot is a good value for just a little extra money. Thick, heavy, 4 gauge wire provides quick starts (these things weigh about 15 pounds!). Each clamp has a glow in the dark polarity indicator on it. At first, this sounds like a solar powered flashlight, because the cables are stored in the dark trunk, but ten seconds in front of the booster car's headlights will charge them up. Cheap jumper cables are no bargin. Buy the best and be done with it. I can't wait until my next dead battery! (Well, almost).

Most of the Proposition 65 complaints are filed on behalf of straw man plaintiffs by private attorneys, some of whose businesses are built entirely on filing Proposition 65 lawsuits. You seem to be a very FAKE profile and probably have friendships with these slimy lawyers

Pen Name, You will have serious problems if you clamp these jumper cables on your testicles. You won't get cancer nor will you give birth. Outside of that you should be GTG.

Does anyone know for sure if these are solid copper cables or copper coated aluminum. Scraping on the cable wires with a knife or something sharp.. is the only way to really know for sure it's solid copper.

Mike, per your comment:

"Pen Name, You will have serious problems if you clamp these jumper cables on your testicles. You won't get cancer nor will you give birth."

Uh Mike.... I think that whether he clamps them on his testicles or not - he ain't giving birth regardless.
