    Amp rating should be 400A at the very least. Check also the gauge of the copper wire itself.

    i used store-bought jumper cables to start a 10 wheeler truck (V10 diesel) ayaw mag start hehe

    uminit lang yung cables

    so we made our own jumpers using welding cable and heavy duty clamps

    For our delivery trucks, we just swap the batteries to get it started. Store bought jumper cables doesn't help.

    1. Red (+) on the drained battery
    2. Red (+) on the good battery
    3. Black (-) on the good battery
    4. Black (-) on a chassis/ground point on the car with the drained battery.

    This is correct right?

    My friends also used welding cable before when they relocated their batteries to the trunk.

    I recall my dad's old BMW had a jumper cable terminal since the battery was at the rear.

    It was something like this:

    ya store-bought jumper cables are only for cars

    mga trucks/heavy machines nakadisplay nadidiskarga ang battery so we put 2 4D batteries on a pushcart (naka-series 24V)

    yan ang pang jumper namin

    That's good. One less thing to forget Pero dapat positive muna bago negative then reverse to remove?
