I wanted to wait to review these until I had a chance to use them, which I just did. The cables performed, well like cables do. They just sat there in transfered current. It was amazing.
On a serious note, I feel these are really good cables at a great price. For starters, at the same price you'd get 8-guage, if not 10-guage from Wal-Mart. For those unfamiliar with current, amps, guages and the like, I'll elaborate. Unlike most units of measure, the smaller the number of guage, the thicker (bigger) it is. It seems that guages in booster cables range from 4-10 (10 being the smallest). The larger the guage, the more power it can handle. So, who cares? Well, if you're driving a Honda Civic vs a Hummer, it's going to make a huge difference. Case in point. Where I work we have a V8 pickup truck. A car needed a jump and one of the guys had a set of 10-guage booster cables. He hooked them up to both cars, and within a few seconds (and quicker than he could remove the cables) they cooked straight thru the wire and melted the plastic, and the wires dropped to the ground, minus the connectors. That's what you get from a V8 engine with 10-guage cables trying to jump start a car. Now, if it was two compact cars, probably not an issue. However, can you be assured that if you become stranded on the side of the road in a compact car, that another compact car is going to stop? If you have a V6 or V8 engine, I wouldn't go with less than 6-guage.
As for the product itself, I can't complain. Plenty of length to the cables and the connectors have a thick coat of paint on them. I think the actual "teeth" on the connectors have good bite and it's nice to have several connection options. I guess the tangle free ascpect worked, as they didn't tangle. The provided case is decent plastic with a zipper, but the best part is the pictured instructions of how to hook up the cables. About 98% of people I've seen jump cars have no idea that you are NOT supposed to hook up all connectors to the battery terminals of both cars. For those who don't know. the negative cable of the car that is being jumped needs to be connected to a grounded part of the frame, not the terminal (it shows this in the case). After use, the cables were easily wrapped up and put back in the case.
The only weird thing I see (which isn't a big deal) is that the negative cable is blue??? Also, some may consider this negative, but the cables are connceted together in the middle much like many bi-wire cords. The cables connect about 14" from the handles and if pulled apart for whatever reason, cannot be reconnected (except by duct tape, which fixes everything).
Hope this helps. Who knew someone could write so much about booster cables...
The extra length of these cables is clutch. Shortly after my review I had the opportunity to use these cables again. A gentleman was stranded on a busy road and there was no way to get my car in front of his. I was, however, able to pull in slightly beside him. He actually had nice cables, but they were way to short. Our batteries were on opposite sides and the cables barely made it, but they did... and we started his car. This wasn't your normal situation, but even in parking lots I've seen people have to reposition cars because the cables were too short. Under normal situations, it won't matter what side your batteries are on, cuz you'll have the length.
I don't give many 5 Star reviews, but these cables just earned one.
I have owned heavy-duty all-copper cables in the past that were probably 0-gauge and about 10 feet long. The very real problem with those was the weight. They were so heavy that the clamps couldn't keep a grip on the terminals. And they were bulky.
I have had these 6-gauge/12' cables in my trunk for over a year. And now that I have used them, I can say without hesitation they are a much better answer. They work well, roll-up much smaller, and don't require someone to hold up the weight in the middle of the cable while jump-starting the car. The generous length allowed me reach across off-set parking spaces with ease.
I see a few reviewers alleging and complaining that these aren't solid copper. Frankly, I don't care. Technically copper is a better conductor. But for this application the performance is sufficient, the reduced weight makes them easier to use, and the reduced cost and bulk are nice bonuses.
The "travel case" is, unsurprisingly, thin and flimsy vinyl. But it has performed it's task just fine. The case also includes instructions for those who may need a refresher before using the cables.
These jumper cables offer good value for the money. If you are in the market for emergency-use jumper cables, you should buy these at once and fugida 'bout it.
If your looking for heavy duty cables, these may not be the best choice.
We have come across many people in parking lots that need a boost and have no cables. This usually occurs at night after the movies or after the mall closes, so it is a product everyone should carry with them.
