Ohh, insulated cables... What's wrong with the non insulated ones?


You'll only use them once....

Thats about the going rate, under a Tenner, for some cheap Jump Leads, and the AA ones are just a rebadged in cheaply made Category. You just need to Shop around for them, there are better quality ones out there for the right money that work better on that rainy day.

Your comment , "there are better quality ones out there for the right money" , applies to everything out there but have you any examples of any better leads for this price ?????? , If so please share

Also I think AA would have done their due diligence before putting their badge on an item

Sellers such as Argos are selling these for £14.99 , they also have a reputation to keep

Who sells these for £10? Proof?!
These are £14.99 like stated and the £10 ones are those half insulated with plastic at the copper area.

I agree, these are nothing special just because AA badged. These use low amperage 10mm wire. You can get 16mm 400amp for just under a tenner. screwfix.com/p/h…BwE

Wouldn't trust those with 600amps, wire thickness is a joke unless they are made of some super conducting material.

Just shows what a minefield it is trying to buy even half decent quality jump leads.

Does anyone know if I can jump start a 1.2 turbo car with a 3.0 turbo car, both petrol, with this cable?
Copper coated cable....?

.......does that mean the cable is Aluminium coated with copper..?

Aluminium 80% as conductive as copper and more fragile........just saying.....

"AA applying due diligence".......the same way the RAC logo appears these days on anything car related...........

for just over 8 quid you're expecting a lot, you tell me where we can get a 100% copper cable for £8.45
CPC/FARNELL . Plenty of choice.
Buy cheap you buy twice.
Can anyone recommend a decent set for a BMW series 3 2.0 engine. Not really looking to save money, I'm just after a decent set.
£5 at proper job

Aluminum has 61 percent of the conductivity of copper, but has only 30 percent of the weight of copper. That means that a bare wire of aluminum weighs half as much as a bare wire of copper that has the same electrical resistance. Aluminum is generally more inexpensive when compared to copper conductors.
Aluminum conductors consist of different alloys known as the AA-1350 series and AA-8000 series. AA-1350 has a minimum aluminum content of 99.5 percent. In the 1960s and 1970s, due to the high price of copper relative to aluminum, this grade of aluminum began to be popularly used for household wiring. Due to low-quality workmanship at connections and the physical differences between aluminum and copper, high-resistance connections formed and became a fire hazard.
As a response, aluminum alloys were developed to have creep and elongation properties more similar to copper. These AA-8000 series alloys are the only solid or stranded aluminum conductors permitted to be used according to Article 310 of the 2014 National Electric Code*. AA-8000 series alloys meet the requirements of ASTM B800, Standard Specification for 8000 Series Aluminum Alloy Wire for Electrical Purposes–Annealed and Intermediate Tempers.
Comparison

If aluminum is used in an application where copper was previously used, it is typically sufficient to use an aluminum conductor two AWG sizes larger than that of copper. A comparison between aluminum and copper for the same application is listed below.
Comparison of XHHW-2 Properties AA-8000 Series Aluminum Copper
AWG size for 60 A at 75°C 6 8
Weight per 1,000 ft. 39 lb. 65 lb.
Nominal diameter 0.26 in 0.23 in
Maximum pulling tension 157 lb. 132 lb
Applications

Copper is much more commonly used for building wire than aluminum. Nearly all electronic cables are made from copper, as are other products that take advantage of the high conductivity of copper. Copper conductors are also commonly used in power distribution, power generation and automotive applications.
For the weight and cost savings, electrical utilities use aluminum for overhead transmission lines. Aluminum also sees usage where its low-weight properties are important, such as aircraft and future applications in automobiles. For large coaxial cables, copper-clad aluminum wire can be used to take advantage of the conductivity of copper while gaining the weight savings of aluminum.
Connectors

Connectors must be rated for use with aluminum. Connections rated for use with aluminum are frequently also able to be used with copper and are marked as so, such as AL7CU, a connector suitable for use with copper or aluminum conductors at 75°C. In applications where connections need to be soldered, copper or tinned copper is preferred, as aluminum is difficult to solder.
Just gone back up to full price whilst it was in my basket!
