Quite smallish length leads - ideal size 5 metres (25mm) - also they are classifed as booster cables NOT jump leads.

Problem is they are quite expensive - typical price around £50

But in terms of terms of quality & reliability, (voltage drop across the leads, much less) they are well worth it.

Problem is if your car don't start 1st time, that's where the trouble starts.

Advice from the AA

Step by step
Before connecting any leads make sure the vehicles are the same voltage and that they're parked with their handbrakes on and ignition off. The vehicles must not touch as this can cause sparks or an explosion.

Use the red jump lead to connect the positive terminal of the donor vehicle's good battery to the positive terminal of the flat battery.
Then use the black lead to connect the negative terminal of the good battery to a suitable earthing point on the engine or chassis of the other vehicle. This earthing point must be away from the battery and fuel system.
With both leads connected wait three minutes for the voltages to equalise before starting either engine.
Start the engine of the donor car and allow it to run for a minute then, with it still running, start the engine of the other car and leave both running at a fast idle for ten minutes. Do not remove the jump leads while the engines are running as this can cause serious damage to the electronics on either car.

If the jump leads get hot, then avoid a possible fire by switching off both engines and allowing the leads to cool.
Turn off the ignition on both cars and then disconnect the leads carefully in the reverse order to the way that they were connected. Be careful not to touch the clips against each other or against the car bodywork.
Start the car that had the dead battery using its own battery power. If it won't start this could indicate a more serious problem with the charging/ignition system that will need investigating by a professional.

I've used the Argos for diesel and 2.5ltr petrol engines for the last three years and they are good quality. The price was the same 3 years ago, which makes them even better value now.
