6 AWG Black Battery Cable has an amperage capacity of 50 amps at a cable length of 11.8 feet. 6 gauge black battery cable is often used in main grounding applications in small cars, RV trailers, golf carts, and small marine crafts. Also great for smaller solar cable applications. When used as a negative 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 6 AWG cable in your electrical system. Made from 99.9% pure copper stranded conductor wire covered in a durable, high temperature resistant Black PVC insulation. The average outside diameter of the black 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 6 awg black cable for a grounding cable, remember to take into account the total length of both the red positive cable and the length you need for your grounding cable. For example, if your black ground cable needs to be 5 feet long, and your red cable is 6 feet in length, then your total system length is 11 ft. For 6 gauge cable, you system could comfortably handle 50 amps of continuous current with a voltage drop of less than 2%.
