Booster Cable 400A (6 pieces)

Whatsapp Order

A booster cable, also known as jumper cables, is a pair of insulated electrical cables with alligator clips on each end, designed to transfer electrical power from one vehicle’s electrical system to another. These cables are commonly used to jump-start a vehicle with a discharged or dead battery by connecting it to a vehicle with a functioning battery. The booster cables allow the transfer of electrical energy from the operational vehicle to the one with a depleted battery, enabling the latter to start its engine.

Booster cable uses

  1. Jump-starting a Vehicle:
    • The primary and most common use of booster cables is to jump-start a vehicle with a dead or discharged battery. By connecting the booster cables to a vehicle with a functioning battery, electrical energy can be transferred to the vehicle with the dead battery, allowing it to start.
  2. Charging a Dead Battery:
    • In situations where a vehicle has been stationary for an extended period, and its battery has become completely depleted, booster cables can be used to provide a temporary charge from another vehicle’s battery.
  3. Emergency Situations:
    • Booster cables are essential in emergency situations where a vehicle’s battery unexpectedly fails, leaving the driver stranded. Having a set of booster cables in the trunk of a vehicle can be a lifesaver in such cases.
  4. Assisting Others:
    • Booster cables can be used to assist other motorists who are experiencing battery-related issues. If you have a set of booster cables, you can help jump-start another person’s vehicle, making it a useful tool for good Samaritans.
  5. Cold Weather Starts:
    • In cold weather, car batteries may have reduced efficiency. Booster cables can be handy in such situations to provide an extra boost of power to start a vehicle when the cold has affected the battery’s performance.
  6. Preventative Maintenance:
    • Some drivers use booster cables as part of routine vehicle maintenance. For example, if a vehicle has been in storage or not used for an extended period, using booster cables to provide a quick charge to the battery can help maintain its health.
  7. Powering Accessories:
    • In certain situations, booster cables can be used to power accessories or small electrical devices in the absence of a functioning power source.

Safety measures and precautions

  1. Read the Vehicle Manual:
    • Before using booster cables, refer to the vehicle’s manual for any specific instructions or precautions related to jump-starting. Some vehicles may have unique requirements or precautions.
  2. Wear Safety Gear:
    • Consider wearing safety gear such as gloves and safety glasses to protect yourself from accidental sparks and electrical contact.
  3. Inspect Cables for Damage:
    • Before use, inspect the booster cables for any signs of damage, including frayed wires or exposed metal. Do not use damaged cables, as they can pose a safety risk.
  4. Ensure Both Vehicles Are Turned Off:
    • Turn off the engines of both vehicles before connecting the booster cables. This reduces the risk of electrical issues and prevents the alternators from producing excess voltage during the jump-start.
  5. Position Vehicles Safely:
    • Park the vehicles so that they are not touching and are positioned in a way that the booster cables can reach both batteries without stretching. Keep the vehicles in Park (automatic transmission) or Neutral (manual transmission).
  6. Identify Positive and Negative Terminals:
    • Identify the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals on both batteries. The positive terminal is usually marked with a plus sign (+) and is typically red, while the negative terminal is marked with a minus sign (-) and is usually black.
  7. Connect Positive Cables First:
    • Connect the red (positive) cable to the positive terminal of the dead battery first, then connect the other end to the positive terminal of the functioning battery.
  8. Connect Negative Cables Second:
    • Connect the black (negative) cable to the negative terminal of the functioning battery. Instead of connecting the other end to the negative terminal of the dead battery, connect it to a clean, unpainted metal surface on the engine block or frame of the vehicle with the dead battery. This helps minimize the risk of sparks near the battery.
  9. Start the Working Vehicle:
    • Start the engine of the vehicle with the functioning battery and let it run for a few minutes before attempting to start the vehicle with the dead battery.
  10. Start the Dead Vehicle:
    • Attempt to start the vehicle with the dead battery. Once it starts, leave both vehicles running for a few minutes to allow the dead battery to recharge.
  11. Disconnect in Reverse Order:
    • When disconnecting the cables, start with the negative cable on the vehicle that was jumped, then the negative cable on the booster vehicle, followed by the positive cables in the same order.
  12. Avoid Touching Metal Parts:
    • While the booster cables are connected, avoid touching metal parts of the vehicles, as this can create sparks.
  13. Seek Professional Help if Needed:
    • If jump-starting doesn’t work or if there are concerns about the condition of the battery or electrical system, seek professional assistance. Avoid attempting to jump-start a damaged or malfunctioning vehicle.
