The clamps triple-polarity identification includes color-coding, indent stamping, and glow-in-the-dark labels. In addition, all energized clamp surfaces are shielded to avoid short circuits and all conductive clamp surfaces are recessed to prevent accidental contact. T-Prene insulation was chosen for the wire jacketing material because it remains flexible even under the severest temperatures and is oil, chemical, and water resistant.

At best, this is a LIGHT duty set of cables.
What a shame as the Coleman brand of products use to be made in the USA and were of the highest quality.
The wire is crimped to the jaws and but the instalated part of the wire is not also crimped. There is a place on the jaws to crimped the insulated portion (which would then act as a stress relief) but it is not used. You can crimp it with a pair of pliers when you get the cables -- just tight enough to grab the cable is all you need -- this will prevent the cables form breaking away where the aluminum is crimpt to the metal.
Jaw markings-- there are three types of markings boasted by the maker: First is Color -- Indeed one can easily identify one side of the paired cable form the other by the color of the jaws.
Second - Indent stamping -- the polarity is stamped into the metal jaws -- The imprint is not disticnt and not very easy to read in good light. At night, it would be useless and one couldn't read the impression by feel. So these are practically useless.
Third -- Phosphorescent labeling -- phosphorescence stores up energy for a short while after strong light exposure and slowly sheds the energy as dim light. So, if you put the cables in the sun for a while, the labels will glow for few minutes. This would help you if you need to jump your battery at night only if you have some sunlight to hold the cables under for a while. Most people will keep the cables in their trunk anyway, where it is genrally dark, so the cables won't have been recently exposed to a lot of sunlight. I suppose one could hold them in front of the car headlights for a few minutes and then moved away from the headlights and quickly read the labels, that would work. But then, why not just read the color of the clips while holding them in front of the headlights? The phosfluoresecnt labels are just a silly useless sales come-on.
They are not, but even if the labels were made with tritium capsules -tritium is a radiant ionic form of Hydrogen (used sometimes on wristwatches -- the tritium is spent after a few years. The notion of glowing labels on booster cables borders on idiotic.
If you have trouble remembering which color to use for positive or negative, just remember that it doesn't matter! What matters is that the same color going to positive on one battery goes to positive on the other. You could use black for positive if you want or red.
You always double the consistency of polarity before attaching the fourth clip. Even if they glow in the dark, have marquee lights blinking messages or they sing "I'm positvely in love with you".
These cables are for consumer (i.e., ocassional) use. For daily, professional use, you'll want real copper cables because copper doesn't corrode or fatigue as easily as aluminum. That's not an issue for cables receiving ocassional use. With ocassional use these will serve most motorists for a lifetime and serve well for the money even overlooking the silliness about the clip labels.
A good set of jumper cables is a must in any vehicle, especially if you live in the frozen North (Cleveland here). Sure, you can buy some cheap 12 gauge or whatever at your local big box store. But I have personally been in situations where the cheap-o cables simply could not carry enough current to jump my vehicle. The cables were too thin to charge the battery in a reasonable amount of time, and could not carry enough juice to turn the starter.
ALWAYS buy 2 or 4 gauge. ALWAYS buy long cables. I don't care what anyone says. Cars are low voltage but high amperage. A starter cranking needs a TON of juice. Those dainty little WM cables will not cut it. Enter these cables.
At 4 gauge, these could probably jump a semi. At 20 feet, you can easily link two cars together even if one is in a difficult spot. When life happens, you do NOT want to be stuck somewhere with cables that aren't adequate.
These cables fit the bill. The handles also appear to be fairly durable, which is important. I have had cheaper cables have the insulation on the handles flake off. Makes for a painful jump.
Overall I am impressed with the workmanship and specifications for the price. Hopefully I will never need them: but if I do, and they do not live up to my expectations, I will update this review.
I finally got to use my Coleman Booster Cables a few months ago when my battery died in the commuter lot. They worked like a charm.
1. Heavy gauge construction makes for a quick jump. (you have to hold them in your hands to appreciate how heavy duty they are) Well built.
2. 20 Foot length let's you jump a car from behind without parking side to side or nose to nose. Much safer on the highway.
None so far.
August 6, 2012 UPDATE: I just jump started a stranded mother and daughter's Nissan Murano in the parking lot after the Coldplay concert. The Coleman cables worked as advertised.
December 10, 2012 UPDATE: A neighborhood kid was trying to start his Mom's Acura MDX by popping the clutch as he rolled past our house. His SUV is an automatic. I jump started his car with no drama, other than the comedy of watching someone trying to pop the clutch with an automatic transmission. (?)
