4 AWG (4 Gauge) Negative Battery Cable Custom Made
Copper battery cable conductor and copper connectors!
This custom made top post negative battery cable comes with a top quality copper top post negative connector which is tin plated to resist corrosion, double crimped onto the cable and then you choose the length of the cable as well as your choice of an optional ring terminal available in various sizes, on the opposite end.
You choose your wire length, which is the length we cut, so when assembled the length from connector hole center to connector hole center will leave you an extra inch to 1.5 inch so you're safe. The options for length and connectors are located near purchase buttons. The optional lug choices for the opposite end are 5/16 (fits 5/16 bolt & M8) or 3/8 (fits 3/8 bolt & M10) with adhesive heat shrink tubing applied matching the wire color. The heat shrink has a meltable glue lining to help seal your cable from air and moisture. The copper connectors feature a tin electro-plating which is resistant to the types of corrosion you'll typically see on bare copper terminals.
If you need something special with regard to the length or lugs or heat shrink color which are outside the available options please send us a message and we may be able to help you out.
ABOUT THE WIRE USED:
This 4 AWG Gauge extreme battery cable is specially designed to meet the demands of various environments while staying extremely flexible. Full AWG sized copper conductor made from 99.9% pure annealed electrolytic copper, will you get maximum power. The insulation and jacket compounds are specially formulated to stay flexible even in cold weather and carry a -49C to 105C temperature rating. The jacket is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasions, oil, sunlight and has a color coded dual extrusion jacket with a white inner insulation which would show any damage to the outer cable more clearly. This cable is rated up to 600 Volts and is suitable for use in automotive applications, solar battery bank wiring, power inverter battery cables, marine battery cables and many other applications calling for a durable yet flexible battery cable. The battery cables meet the requirements of SAE J1127 and J378 making them ABYC and US Coast Guard approved for boat and marine use.
BENEFITS OVER WELDING CABLE:
Full AWG Size Copper Conductor
TPE Jacket is Oil Resistant where EPDM on many welding cables is a poor insulator against oil
SAE Rated for Automotive and Marine Uses
BENEFITS OVER CCA POWER WIRE:
Our cable is Copper...REAL COPPER but watch out for other "CCA Cable" as CCA Means Copper Clad Aluminum so you'd be using Aluminum which is a poor conductor compared to this pure copper cable! You have to use larger sizes of aluminum CCA cable, approximately 2 sizes larger to get close to the same power delivery as real copper cable! If you care about maximum power use our cable!
