    Default Re: Jump Leads or Battery Tie Switch

    Just looked at Halfords - didn't realise that leads came rated for engine sizes; it seems that they only go up to 4l, which should hopefully be ok for my 4.3. There's also lower rated for less money (Dennis - think you have a 2.5l KAD32?)

    TBH the ones I have were probably last used on a 1.1l Renault 5 at college / Uni...so might upgrade them, assuming the higher capacity have thicker cables.
    Or do we think it's marketing faff?

    I generally buy the not so expensive ones and run some solder in where the clip meets my the wire

    It is all down to the wire thickness and the quality of the connection clip to wire
