So don't just go buy the cheapest jumper cables you can find, take a look, do 5 minutes worth of research and buy a higher quality set. A high quality set of jumper cables should last at least the life of the vehicle, if not your entire life as a driver. I typically recommend this about $20 set from AAA, but even a professional quality set of 1-2 AWG jumper cables should only cost $50-60 as of the writing of this article.
As always, stay safe out there. I'll see you on the road.
