1 Gauge (AWG) Red Battery Cable sold by the foot. This battery cable is designed for higher power applications and can comfortably handle 200 amps at a cable length of 9.4 feet. The nominal outside diameter of the cable is 0.490 inches. When used as a positive battery cable in a low voltage electrical system, remember that the total length of both the positive and negative cables have to be considered when selecting amperage capacity of the 1 AWG cable in your electrical system. The ends of the cable are often terminated with a Battery Terminal or Copper Cable Lug. Made from 22.5 gauge 99.9% pure copper conductor strands covered in a durable, high temperature resistant Red PVC insulation. The average outside diameter of the red cable is approximately 0.330 inches. 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.

If you are using the 1 awg red cable for a power cable in a 12 or 24 volt system, remember to take into account the total length of both the black negative cable and the length you need for your power cable. For example, if your red power cable needs to be 10 feet long, and your ground cable is 9 feet in length, then your total system length is 19 ft. For 1 gauge cable, you system could comfortably handle 100 amps of continuous current with a voltage drop of around 2%.
