No jump leads will try to kill you, If you use them porperly

Only up to 1000cc these ones - need the thicker ones for most cars.

If you got cheap nasty ones with bad insulation they might.

These look like very thin cables. Had some like these before and if your battery is completly flat, the voltage drop across the cable will mean that you will not be able to start the car. Of course you only find this out when you most need it.

Not a deal but if anyone looks for a good set of leads, Argos has for £15 and it is very thick and strong.

the cheap ones have more insulation to make cables look bigger because they cut down on the copper conductor core.Have look were cables connected to crock clamps as poor quality ones have small copper core and really thick insulation still worth having but dont expect it jump start car with really flat battery though unless you leave them on for about 10 mins to charge from other car
