I have a Prius. It has a ~$4,700 inverter connected to the 12v that routinely gets fried by supposedly smart people accidentally reversing polarity. I'm also supposedly smart but I'm in for 1 because it's cheap insurance for some expensive gear.

I bought one because I got that woot coupon everyone else got, and needed new jumper cables.

I know the order, and how to read red from black, just needed new cables, and 10 dollars shipped is a pretty good deal even for The Strangers (2008) cables....

I might need to buy a couple of these jumper cables!

Assuming:
100A
12 feet of cable (two legs)
70 degrees F ambient
Aluminum wire
12VDC

The voltage at the other end of these cables is only 9.48V

With a proper set of 4 gauge copper cables that comes to 11.4V

This doesnt sound like a big deal, but when your sensitive electronic computers that manage your engine require a steady 12V (or 5V) supply to operate, this can cause problems.



A running car will usually push out about 14v from the alternator, not 12v, so by your math, we'd get closer to 11.1v at the other end.

I approve of this post.

Also ammendments state that you must never ask directions or be able to find anything in plain view.

I'm quite happy with my 'dumb' 4ga jumper cables. I've never had an issue jumping my or other vehicles.

Jumping a car isn't exactly difficult.
Good as a backup/emergency or for someone who has no idea what they're doing I guess.

Yup, and that's still not enough to charge/top up/refresh a 12V battery.

they should be called charging cables. no way are these thick enough to carry juice to start a car with no battery, or a completely dead one that won't hold a charge.

You are not trying to charge or top up. You just want to start the car. That is why jumping works. Then your own car will charge it as you drive. Have you never done this before?

On the rest of the internets, these cables are going for anywhere from $12 to $42. That would seem suspicious if my generation still had any critical thinking abilities.

I was kidding in my previous reply about your two accounts being permanently linked.

Permalink stores the message's location in your Cut-and-Paste buffer. You can then use the link to refer to the post again. If you use a normal page link, it'll just go to the webpage where the original post is. But being that there are lots of posts, it would be hard to find the post you want. Permalink not only takes you to the page, but it will also jump to the message thats on that page.

Try it out. Go to a post you want Permalinked. Put your cursor over the Permalink and Left-Click. Look for an option like "Copy link location." Click on it and the Permalink is now stored in your buffer. Now go to your webbrowser and press Ctrl-V to paste the link. When you press Enter, you'll be taken to the originalo post.
