Battery Cables

FYI, I found some great battery cables on the McMaster Carr website. I bought ten feet each of 1/0 awg 1016 strand super flexible battery cable in red and black. This stuff is way better than any welding cable I have seen, and was only $2.74 a foot. This compares to $3.75 a foot at the MAD Electrical site. McMaster Carr has just about anything you need and will get it to you fast.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with McMaster Carr. Since I have started building my street rod I have found them invaluable for a lot of things, especially stainless fasteners.

Vince, does that price include the ends attached or is that for the wire only?

That is just the cable. I had not decided on a length yet. I bought Burndy crimp cable connectors from our local industrial electrical supply house ($2.00 each), and used a Burndy hydraulic crimper that I borrowed from the electrical shop at work. It made a very professional crimp that is impossible to pull the wire from. I am not going to use traditional battery post type connectors. I am using the Burndy lugs at both ends of the cables.
