Is 4 gauge the combined diameter of the paired cable? Because a 4 gauge wire is pretty big, 6 is ideal for 12v purposes (and 10 gauge is common in most cheap sets but will still jump a <3.0L engine (and reeeally cheap sets can go down to 16)).

But at $20-30 for a passable set of cables, I'd just buy a $60 300A booster pack instead. Safer for the cars and the users, plus they come with extra features like flashlights, emergency flashers, USB ports, etc.

4gauge is a normal size for decent booster cables. I would not be trying to jump start a car with a cable anywhere near 16gauge, 16 is tiny

Copper clad alluminum. Expected at this price point. Would have been a steel if it was all copper.

One thing I learned having my battery die on me in an awkward spot recently is that I should invest in one of those portable booster batteries which doesn’t require another car, which can be good if you’re in a remote area or positioned in a way that another car can’t reach you

Showing online as $30 for me too, but it's in the flyer for $20 (Jan. 3 - 9). I'm in Victoria.

They're all CCA at this point, aren't they?

Just went to Home Depot, richmond Hill North. They have it listed on the shelf for $20. Cashed out for $20 as well. Must be an in-store deal. They had 2 more left on the shelf.

Thanks OP.

CCA ...not really any good...I bought a bunch of these (exact ones) to keep in work trucks in case of emergency a few tears ago on a similar sale...they are ok left in garage on a real emergency, no other option , they "may" work...but depending on what you boost..they may overheat and catch fire..siting a truck for a year..they fall apart, plastic splits, leads start to break, and thats how the fires start. you may net get even 1 use out of them
Not worth 10 bucks in my eyes really..just spend a bit extra and get copper cables, they will last a lifetime
