Heavy duty electrical items that are specifically designed to support metal working operations (e.g., welding) and other heavy duty requirements such as light industrial, heavy equipment operations, over-the-road trucking, and farm and ranch. This category includes welding cable, HD electrical clamps, 220V plugs, HD copper lugs, etc.
Automotive electrical requirements. This grouping is headlined by our Battery Charger and Jump Start offerings. We have a wide range of equipment that can be used by all DIYers (e.g., “trickle” chargers) up to professional shops (e.g., 300 Amp with emergency start). We fulfill everyday DIY automotive electrical needs with our medium and standard-duty battery charger clamps, tune-up clamps, booster cables, top, side and marine post battery terminals and accessories, premium copper cable lugs and butt connectors, and electrical test clips. For more heavy duty automotive electrical requirements, we offer the heavy duty battery jumper cables and Bumper Jumper Kit. The difference between the booster cables and heavy duty jumper cables is significant. The booster cables are what most people would have in their car as an emergency precaution with the intent that they would rarely be used. The heavy duty jumper cables are designed more for something an over-the-road trucker or farmer might use on their big rigs or farm equipment.
Electrical wiring requirements. We offer the DIYer and professional an assortment Multi-Testers, electrical test clips, and Crimp & Seal Program connectors for multiple applications. Our Heat Shrink Crimp and Seal program includes mini butane torches and the butane refill canisters.
