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

want please email me. I may have it in stock and just not yet
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.
