Must be a California thing, more greenie stuff. Here, I’ve never seen battery cables smaller than 4 AWG at AutoZONE or ADVANCED Auto, I can always find 2 AWG and sometimes 1/0. Doing a quick check, 4 AWG is the smallest I found on the AutoZONE website. If I were going to the trouble to build my own cables, they’d be 2/0.

Your dyslexia is kicking up again. That 600 volts is the wire insulation rating of most all wire.

We’re too smart here to buy 10 AWG for jumper cables. I found some on a clearance table. Once you separate ‘em, they make great jumper WIRES.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.
