Bob,
Several years ago I acquired pre-cut and connector installed battery cables - I believe from you or B&C. I recently found that there was corrosion on one of the PC680 battery ground terminal connections. I want to replace the offending battery and install new #4 cables from each battery to the #2 ground cable. Though the #2 cable connector was involved, only the area around the end of the connector was involved so it can be restored, reused and protected; the wire itself was also corroded in the case with the single #4 jumper.
I need one 4" wire length with connector tabs same side of cable, and one cable 3" wire length, connector tabs on opposite side of the cable, both #4 cable. This will get the #2 wire removed from the battery terminals. I did not find pre-cut and connector fitted cables on the B&C website.
Can you advise a source where I might obtain these?
Regards, Doug Windhorn

Doug,

One option is to take your cables to a local welding supply store and purchase welding cable to replace them. They will cut the new cable to the correct length and install the connectors of your choice. The welding cable is very flexible and easy to work with.

The other option is to go to a marine supply store such as west marine and purchase the cables and connectors there. This option will be a bit more expensive.
Good luck

Justin.

B&C still sells these - they're listed as "Super-Flex Battery Lead - Red" (also a "-Black" version).

Many moons ago I did supplied these products. In the interim,
B&C has added super-flex jumper service to their catalog.
