7 battery jumper cables buying tips.

  Being stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car is something we all try to avoid. 

It’s always a good idea to carry a set of Battery jumper set with you at all times as you never know when your car or someone else’s will have a dead battery. It is good to have it in case of emergency.

Battery jumper set are one of the many items that you should never ever buy the cheapest one .You usually use it at the most INAPPROPRIATE times, in the freezing cold, at night, early morning or in the rain. Don’t skimp on this important piece of safety equipment.

It’s a common misconception that all Battery jumper set will do the same job. This is patently untrue and believing that lie is a good way to end up stranded even though you have cables in hand.

Many people don’t realize that it really does matter which kind of Battery jumper they are buying.  If you are going to buy a Battery jumper set for your car, then you must be cautious and concentrate on some basic things like what we are going to discuss as follows: 

1) Cable gauge-selection of gauge.

  2) Cable material.

  3) Jumper Cables Insulation

  4) Heavy Duty Clamps.

  5) Warranty.

  6) Instruction manual

  7) Storage Bag

  •  #1 to #3 are tips to select good quality cable ( 80% of machinery & hardware sellers unaware).
  •  #4 is related to clamps.
  •  #6 is the most importance tip ( 90% of the people are unaware about it ).

   Please take a moment to read through our 7 tips list before you making any decision.

   Maybe is a little bit bore (long article & too many technical terms).

  Battery Jumper Cables Buying Tip No1

  1) Cable gauge-selection of gauge (The higher the gauge (numerically) the thinner the wire).

      Thicker cables are capable of transmitting more electric current, the best jumper cables you can buy for your car are heavy duty jumper               cables. The thickness of jumper cables is measured in gauge, and the lowest gauge number indicates the thickest cables. 

  • The thicker (small gauge) the cables,the more current (amps) it will carry.
  • The thicker (small gauge) the cables, the better the chance it will work when jump start a car battery.
  • Thin jumper cables(large gauge) may not be able to carry enough electric current to start your car, and in some cases it may get too hot from the current that is going through, ruining the cables and possibly causing sparking, a fire or explosion.

2) Cable material

Beware of cheap jumper cables. We have found the cheap 2 gauge sets are really 4 gauge or "copper clad" aluminum (CCA cables) instead of 100% copper. Aluminum has 1.5 times the resistance of copper. Buy a quality copper battery jumper cables.




Welding Cable

Welding cable is build to be flexible. It usually has a high temperature rating and a soft flexible insulation & oil resistant. Welding cable tends to be large gauge wire so it does work great as jumper cable. For that reason I do recommend it for automotive applications where the ability to roll it up and easier to put it behind the seat in the car.

Why copper cables? video

  1.  Best Conductor

           Copper is the best conductor out of all of them.This means that the resistance of copper cable is relatively low .

           An aluminium cable would have nearly twice the resistance of a copper cable with the same dimensions. Therefore the energy losses in the aluminium cable will be higher than in the copper cable. The copper cable is more energy efficient.

  1.  Flexibility

           You will need the jumper cables to be flexible when you use it for jump start. 

  1.  High Melting Point

           It really takes sometime to melt a copper wire. Therefore, if you are worried about safety, copper wire is going to be one of your best options. If an overload or surge comes through the wire, it is not likely to melt or burn. This means that if fire start as a result of a power problem will be greatly decreased.  For more interesting information, please watch video.

  1.  Does Not Loosen

           When you use copper jumper cables, it is unlikely to be loosen. When other materials are to be used, they can sometimes be loosen where they are connected and come unattached.This may lead to dangerous conditions and waste a lot of time re-fixing everything.

  1.  Copper wires are more durable.

           Not to be worried about surface oxides forming on it. It is truly the best choice for jumper cables.


  • Pros : Good conductor, flexible,high melting point & durable.
  • Cons: More expensive

Two types of cheap welding cables


What is CCA cables?
CCA is an aluminium conductor with a thin copper coating. It is made by encasing a rod of aluminium in a layer of copper strip which is butt-welded along the seam to totally encase the aluminium. The entire rod is drawn through a series of rollers and dies to reduce the diameter to as little as 0.1mm, just over the thickness of a human hair. Aluminium is a cheaper, less conductive metal than copper and substituting CCA substantially reduces the copper content and therefore the cost of producing the cable.

CCA has some advantages over solid copper, mainly surrounding weight and cost. CCA is significantly lighter than copper and in some applications can offer advantages in cable containment and handling. Aluminium is around one third of the price of copper and therefore offers cost savings over solid copper conductors. Theft is also less likely with scrap values largely reduced. It also has better corrosion resistance over plain aluminium.


                   Cca jumping cable - wasting your $$$$$

  • Pros: Cheaper, lighter weight 
  • Cons: Aluminium oxidises and performance deteriorates


What is CCS cables?
CCS (copper clad steel) is similar to CCA in that a steel conductor is thinly coated with a layer of copper. Steel gives higher mechanical strength than aluminium but is heavier and less flexible. It is of course also less conductive than copper. It is manufactured in the same way as CCA.


                  Save $ don't buy this


  • Pros: Cheaper 
  • Cons: Heavier, performance worse than CCA cables



Few tactics to differentiate Copper Cables, CCA and CCS Cables?

1. When you cut the wires, you will see that the copper wire is copper coloured all the way through whereas CCA is aluminum coloured in the middle; (You need to take a close look of it)
2. If you hold a lighter underneath the cables, the copper cables will hardly droop/melt, while the CCA cable will almost instantly droop/melt; For more interesting information, please watch video.

3. The weight of the copper cables is heavier than CCA and CCS cables; and
4. Warranty provides by the supplier for copper cables.

3) Jumper Cables Insulation

    When we mentioned welding cables, it could be confused with two important components of it: sheath and insulation. While both provide protection for the cables, their respective jobs.

Outer sheath functions as oil ,chemical resistant & fire redundant.

Inner insulation located between the cable’s center conductor and sheath. Inner insulation is a non-conductive material, or a material resistant to the flow of electric current. It is often called a dielectric in radio frequency cables. Insulation resists electrical leakage, prevents the wire’s current from coming into contact with other conductors, and preserves the material integrity of the wire by protecting against environmental threats such as water and heat. Both safety and effectiveness of the wire depend on its insulation.


                   Proper sheath & insulation

4) Heavy Duty Clamps

    Better clamps(alligator clips) will transmit electricity much better. Heavy duty jumper cables come with bigger and stronger clamps. This makes for better connections between the two batteries terrminals, which reduces the chance of jiggle to avoid sparking occur.

  • Sparks can cause damage expensive electronic components.

Battery Jumper Buying Tip No 6


6) Instruction guide manual 


Most importance tip!


The process of boosting of a  battery is especially important. Jumper cables should be connected properly to avoid sparks, which may cause an explosion of the hydrogen gas emitting from a battery. Beyond this, an incorrect hook up can damage critical and expensive electronic components.

The procedure is simple:

Connect the positive (+) clamp to the positive terminal of the weak battery and the other positive clamp to the corresponding terminal of the good battery.

Next, the negative (-), or ground, terminal on the good battery and, finally, the negative clamp to the engine block, frame or other grounded metal as far as possible from the battery. You want to avoid sparks in the vicinity of the explosive hydrogen gas that emits from the battery. Do not connect it to the ground terminal (negative).

To remove jumper cables reverse the instruction guide above order. 


In short :

Positive to positive and negative to negative are two very important things to remember when jump starting a car. Otherwise you could end up with two very burnt cars, like the ones seen at our facebook page.


Additional suggestion: 


  • Remenber the procedures of jump start.
  • Buy L&N JAYA SDN BHD Battery Jumper set (we provide 3 languages(English,Bahasa Malaysia,Chinese instruction guidance manual for every jumper set purchase).
