I saw these in-store at Ancaster Costco last week, should be the same price as online or less now. Good gauge for boosters.

Yes I saw them at Costco Edmonton today. Great price for gauge 1 cables.

They also had the Energizer Car Safety Kit for $19.97 - which has cheap booster cables and a tire inflator. Pretty crappy stuff, but still decent for the occasional use.

Spotted in Kitchener. Unfortunately, I need 4 gauge cable for a project. I'll have to spend more than this elsewhere!

Perhaps just buy online to secure the item first, before heading to store

1 gauge is pretty thick, which I assume is good.

But for "everyday use" does it matter? compared to $10 generic jumper cables to jump start a car

It's also 25ft, so I'd question whether it works out to be the same as 10ft 2 or 4-gauge cables..

Let's hope you aren't using these everyday though..

for portability this isn't too good. i have 12' 8ga cables and they bundle nice an compact and have never failed me. they stay in my trunk at all times.

You do know that the lower the number, the thicker the cable, right?

If it were solid copper, I'd be buying every unit available, selling it all for scrap and then retiring.

CCA is generally frowned upon, but looking at the reviews on amazon.ca, it's pretty safe to say these should satisfy almost everyone.

Yes, I do. I physically can't fit a gauge 1 cable in my application.

1) 25' is really long. 12' is fine in most circumstances.

2) copper-clad aluminum booster cables is not a good thing. There is a reason electrical wires in almost all houses are copper only ;)

Price is cheap and so is the quality of the wire. A pass.
Love is all there is to have.

they supposedly stay flexible at temperatures as low as -40, which helps in ''portability''

The reason there is no more aluminium wires in houses (I do have about 20% aluminium in my house and am not concern about it because I know how to maintain it) is that aluminium tend to get loose in connectors, and can heat from a loose connection. For booster cables there is absolutely no issue having aluminium cables. Utilities all over the world use aluminium because it is cheaper than pure copper. Price is cheap for 25 ft 1 gauge booster cable, but I won't say cheap quality. Aluminium is an excellent conductor, and these are rated at 800 amps

No thanks.
Carries less current? Those are gauge 1, 800 amps rated, enough for most vehicles. You probably can't boost a giant mine truck though ;)

Amazon website has the same one with a bag included as well. Costco's website lists "Bag not included" in description. Does Costco in-store have a bag included or no???
