The 4-gauge, heavy-duty cables are the strongest consumer grade available.
Clamps Glow in the Dark
Road Power's Extra Heavy-Duty Booster Cables feature special Polar-Glo clamps that glow in the dark, so you can easily identify their polarity--a critical feature for nighttime charges on dark roadways. The triple-polarity identification features include color coding, indent stamping, and glow-in-the-dark labels, so you'll have no trouble recognizing positive and negative poles.
Versatile, Safe, and Easy to Use
Road Power's specially designed clamps are easily gripped by all hand strengths and sizes. These versatile clamps can fit both side-terminal and top-post batteries. For safety, all energized clamp surfaces are shielded to prevent short circuits, and all conductive clamp surfaces are recessed to prevent accidental contact.
Heavy-Duty Cable Construction Resists the Elements
The booster cables are insulated with Road Power's trademarked T-Prene coating, which is designed to remain flexible down to -94 degrees Fahrenheit. The 4-gauge, heavy-duty cables are the strongest consumer grade available, and they resist motor oil, rain, and chemicals for dependable use.

i play a lot with different stereo components (amplifiers etc) in my car and i end up running the battery down dead quite often.
for me hauling around a 15-pound set of booster cables in the trunk is worth it because, for example, i used it twice within just the first week after receiving it - for most other people it may not be worth it.
the jaws grip super tight. actually its very hard to work them with just one hand because they are so strong - sometimes i end up using both hands to compress the spring - seriously i imagine many guys will HAVE to use both hands but this makes for a stronger contact. there are copper inserts in both jaws (so in 4 jaws in total) and some people prefer that although (of course) only 2 of the 4 jaws actually are connected to the cable directly.
the cable itself really looks like 2nd gauge - its almost all copper with only very thin (about 1 millimeter) insulation on top of it. this is unlike 10 dollar jumper cables which have almost the same thickness on the outside but are almost all rubber with a thin copper wire in the middle.
i ran into a bit of a problem with the insulation on the jaws themselves though. the red and black rubbery plastic on the handles is thin and not durable. when i gripped one of the jaws onto the handle of another it bit right through this plastic and started to spark. this is also a testament to how strongly the jaws grip - they bite right through insulation (so dont do that).
i never thought i would need so much length but actually its quite handy.Read more ›
(Update: After compairing them to the 4ga cables I bought a month or so back for my car, they don't really seem that much thicker... That's said they are MUCH heavier! The individual stranding is of a thicker gauge than the other model so I'm guessing that's why the thickness isn't much more...)
What I like:
--Length - I bought these for a half-ton pickup. Why? Because it never fails that your battery will fail to start your engine when your parked in a packed lot with cars on all sides. Rather than pushing a 3 ton vehicle out you pull the booster vehicle in as close as you can and let the length work for you.
--Heft - these cables are no joke. It's a workhorse grade cable that lets plenty of energy flow. When trying to start a 5.7L V8, that's kinda important.
--Solid Clamps - Unlike some of the other reviews, I don't have a problem opening my parrot clamps with one hand. But their hardly weak, they'll clamp solid and stay put!
(Update: If you really need 2ga booster cables and your skeptical of these, Deka makes a set of 2ga cables for around $150. I have no personal experence with them but I have a little with the Deka name and they seem pretty good.)
What I don't like:
--Stiffness - They're not as flexible as I was hoping. But about as flexible as I expected. True welding cable in 2ga is about $3 per foot and per cable. That's why the best jumper cables cost $200+.Read more ›
