Some guys just want to buy parts and assemble cables themselves. Using the links below you can purchase wire, battery terminals and lugs. We stock a larger variety of battery cable lugs than any of the large auto parts chains. I don't have all the various wire, terminals and lugs that we have in stock on the page yet, but the most common are listed. I'm adding more to our inventory all the time so if you don't see what you want please email me. I may have it in stock and just not yet listed it.
The manufacturer of the ends recommends crimping as the best way to attach ends. If done right, with good equipment, the crimp is so tight that there is no air gaps and no room for the solder. I offer a few styles of crimpers. I don't really recommend the cheap hammer style crimpers, but they'll do the job if you're not too picky. They also seem to "wear out" and start binding after several uses.
Soldering is tough on the insulation and the solder wicks up the wire destroying the flexibility. Soldering also requires flux, hazardous lead solder and solvents (for cleaning the flux). I've also heard soldering can crack between end and wire. However, I've soldered ends in the past and I've never experienced any problems. I also have some excellent solder for sale if you need it. email for details.
Items are spec'ed by wire gauge. (see Technical data for what the sizes mean). Battery terminals are also specs as positive or negative (positive is slightly larger). Lugs are also spec'ed by bolt hole size.
Because of the large number of parts, I've split this page into several categories... Click on the part category to expand the list.
