Have you used these ? I havn't bought them yet .

Those hinges you can see in the picture are plastic. I haven't bought this specific one but have used identical ones in the past and too much pressure when trying to fit to a large terminal and it snaps. Better to get one with metal spring hinges.

These have better quality clamps:

At this price still worth a try, Euro Car Parts are usually good with returns.

dosn't state the cable size on the Amazon one, looks good and has good reviews but could be fictitious figures 2000amp, the cable size would neeed to be well over 25mm, but dosn't look it.

Thank you. Shame those ones don't come with a bag
24mm of insulation
A good jump is essential when feeling a bit flat. Ensure your leads are thick, that you have good contact and you'll pass good juice over.

Thin, cheap leads just don't cut it, and go off/melt in your hand on first use.
I doubt it has 25mm thickness even with insulation. Those cables would be massive. It might be 25mm circumference, not diagonal.

Only about £30 for one of those USB power Pack jumpers. Food for thought perhaps? (That said I’ve not attempted to use mine yet).

I have.

Last time I jumped a car (my wife's 1.2 Corsa had a flat battery, I used my 1.8 diesel Mondeo to jump it) I fried the ECU. Cost £400+ to get put right.

Bought any Aukey car starter (USB ports, emergency hammer, flashlight, all built in) reduced from £70 odd to around £15.

Aforementioned Mondeo had a flat battery after work one day. Everyone had gone. Grabbed this out of the boot, attached to battery, engine started straight away.

Would defo recommend one, and would never, ever jump a car from leads again.
25mm Thick ? 1" Thick ? are you SURE ?
I borrowed a set of these off a mate , the hinges on the clamps are absolutely useless , the plastic gives way and the spring pops out and you end up having to press them onto the terminal while the wires get extremely hot smoke was coming off one of them , total waste of money
Cables are usually specified in CSA (cross-sectional *area*) which these probably are.

I have two almost identical sets and would agree with the others that the clamps are poor quality and very brittle, I've broken three of them now and they sit in the shed waiting for me to buy some replacement clamps (the cables are good quality!).
25mm thick,no way lol...they will be 25mm2 which is 10.6 mm in cable measurement.I have a pro heavy duty set here,all metal coated clips etc,would start a jumbo jet lol...I'd say they are around 12mm at most.

He couldn't anyway the plastic clip had broke off lol
Surely 25mm has to be circumference measurement?
Otherwise for an area of 25mm2, the diameter must be approx. 5.65mm.

That's correct, 25mm^2 cable will have a conductor diameter of 5.65mm. With the insulation the overall diameter will be around 10mm.

To be honest 25mm^2 is really not great for jump leads, and especially not for 5 meter long ones. Jump cables need to be as thick and as short as possible (within practical limits) to be effective. A really good set will use 35mm^2 or greater cable.

I have an Aukey car starter too. I've jumped all sorts with it, the biggest being a medium sized dumper truck, it struggled and took half the power it had but it did it. I wouldn't be without one now.
I would never jump start a modern car, even more so for cars with stop start systems. If at home use a ctek charger or get a battery operated charger that doesn't jump start via another cars battery - you might fry the electronics in both cars
There's always a "weakest link" when jump starting a flat battery car with jump leads - and sometimes it is not obvious.
I use jump leads to charge up a flat battery for maybe 10-20 minutes then try the starter.
Also I might swap over the batteries as once started/warm an engine is then much easier to start again.
You can often hear a difference in the horn depending how flat the battery is - if there is a reasonable amount of power I might tow start rather than use jump leads. I always have rope in the car and don't bother with jump leads - too cumbersome..

At this time of year if you do not drive many mjles it can be worthwhile just charging up your car battery on a battery charger. My car turns on screen heaters etc. on it's own - I often don't notice- and I don't drive many miles, not even every day. Only last week I charged my car battery after a slightly hesitant start and it's been good since.
A friend had a digital battery tester which measured the capacity of the battery - took about 30 seconds - I was impressed, cost £200+ !!! But maybe a garage would test for you ?

Agree I got a similar jump starter from Halfords for about £30 great little device.
Picked some of these up for the occasional use they get will do me fine and save me having to call up the Father in-law to bring his over again. Cost me more in a thank you to him last time for bailing me out! lol

Yep, leaving the leads connected for a while to partially charge the dead battery is the right way to do things, and will likely be the only way that cheap leads will ever work successfully especialy on larger engines and diesels.

This ones looks exactly as mine ones.
I've used them to start Scania lorry with 13 litre engine.

Yeah the core..anyway I didn't write the chart lol
They're cheap copper clad aluminium cables and the clips are poorly made plastic. They were taken straight back for a refund
