      Comments about Performance Tools Jumper Cables:

      My battery was out in the morning and I tried to jump start with this cable from my neighbor's car.
      I have Hyundai XG350 and my neighbor have Toyota 4Runner. The power should be enough to start my V6 engine.
      I never used this cable, but it didn't work.
      However, my neighbor's cable, which looks toughter and more expensive, worked perfect at first shot.
      Buy other cable.
      This cable is just waste of money.
      I just wasted 30 minutes in the morning because of this cable.

          Certainly not the best on the market, but they do work. Nice set to keep in your trunk for emergency use, but definietely not for everyday or heavy use.

              Comments about Performance Tools Jumper Cables:

              The wire and clamps are too thin to carry the current to jump a car battery. Tried to use them from Jeep (good battery) to small nissan truck (dead battery) and no go. Another friend showed up with big fat jumper cables and they worked fine. After some research on cable gauge/sizes, I see that these cables are a better fit for a lawnmower or maybe motorcycle. But I wouldn't trust them for anything at all.

              if you are jumping a lawn mower, atv or something small they should be o.k. they are not for jumpstarting cars or trucks!
