Beware of the cheap foreign jumper cables.
We have found the cheap 2 gauge sets are really 4 gauge or “copper clad” aluminum instead of 100% copper. Aluminum has 1.5 times the resistance of copper. Aluminum jumper cables are junk! Don’t be fooled. Buy a quality copper set.
For our disconnect sets, we start with the premium 2 gauge set above. Then we add 175 Amp quick disconnects in your choice of color.
I often get asked, “What is the difference between universal and parrot clamps?” The picture directly below shows parrot clamps. (The picture of the “20-foot premium booster cables with quick disconnect” 5 pictures down shows the optional universal clamps. ) The universal clamps are probably better for connecting to side post terminals in tight spaces.
Parrot clamps are probably better if you are only connecting to top post terminals. Personally, I own a set of the boosters with parrot clamps but I don’t own any cars with side post terminals.
