1/0 Gauge (AWG) Battery Cable is designed for higher power applications and can comfortably handle 300 amps at a cable length of 8 feet. The outside diameter of the cable is aproximately 0.550 inches. When useing battery cable in low voltage electrical systems such as 12 volts, the total length of both the positive and negative cables have to be considered when determining amperage capacity for your electrical system. Made from 21 gauge 99.9% pure copper strands covered in a durable, high temperature resistant PVC insulation available in red or black. Rated for low voltage and battery use up to 60 volts DC and 25 Volts AC. The internal copper stranded core is highly conductive maximizing current flow while still being highly flexible. Meets SAE J1127 specifications. Temperature rated from -50°C to 105°C (-58°F to 221°F). Made in the USA. RoHS Compliant. The ends of the cable are often terminated with a Battery Terminal or Copper Cable Lug.
