45. That is the issue...those sold rather cheaply in the stores are worthless...and it is hard to find

a better one ...so I use my charger for everything ...lawn tractor, snow blower etc.

My friend Scott handi-guy made this for my girls to carry around... he found an old time parts store and bought 30 feet of heavy welder cable. Cut the cable in half and put heavy duty clamps on the ends. he did mark the positive and negative on each end really well...one of these girls had an old car and never put oil in her car because she didn't know there were no idiot lights in a car that old and actually burned the damn thing up so safety is important! This does work...you have a set of jumper cables that will work in all cases. Scott said the store bought ones are usually #6 cable and itís to thin as you noted... the clips are cheap as well.
