Let Us Build Your Custom Cables to Your Specifications!

We can build exactly what you need and have it in your hands quickly.

Custom cables are built based on your specifications, so they require 100% prepayment before we build them. There are no refunds for custom cables under any circumstance!

Custom Battery Cables

Do you own a vehicle that is 20, 30, 40, 50 years old, or even older? Is it hard to start? Have you had the alternator, battery, and starter checked only to find out they were all fine? It’s likely time to replace those worn-out battery cables.

Do you have numerous aftermarket accessories all tied to your stock battery clamps in a haphazard fashion?

Are you building something from scratch and the local auto parts store doesn’t stock what you need?

No problem at all! We can build the cables you need to your specifications!

Before you go down to the local auto parts store and grab a pair of pre-made generic cables and spend half a day trying to make them work in your application, give us the chance to build something to suit your needs exactly. We have nearly every conceivable style of battery clamp in stock. We also use super finely stranded Pure OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) battery cable that meets the American Wire Gauge (AWG) specification, is extremely flexible, and tinned for corrosion resistance. Finally, we can dress it in split loom tubing, split braided tubing, and/or hi-temperature sheathing.

What Information Do We Need to Fab Up a Set of Custom Battery Cables for Your Project?

Custom battery cables are made on demand and require the following information from you in order to quote them:

  • Year, Make, and Model of Vehicle
  • Displacement & Compression of Engine
  • Gauge of stock cables (if any)
  • Length of stock positive (+) cable
  • Diameter of hole in lug that connects to starter or starter solenoid
  • Length of stock large gauge negative (-) cable
  • Diameter of hole in lug that connects to engine block or frame
  • Length of stock small gauge negative (-) cable, typically from battery negative (-) to fender

Examples of Our Work

1968 Chevrolet Pickup Truck

Look at the original cables:

  • Cable Construction: A close look reveals that these cables are made from Copper Clad Aluminum (CCA). This is clearly printed on the jacket of the cable. CCA is cheaper and lighter than OFC, but it has 30 – 40% greater resistance per foot when compared to copper cables of the same size! These cables are somewhat inflexible, as noted by the hard bends in the photo.
  • Size: The main cables are both 4 AWG, the smaller accessory lead on the positive cable is 10 AWG, and the smaller accessory lead on the ground cable is 12 AWG.
  • Ring Terminals: The ring terminals on the ends of the cables are crimped well; however, all but one are uninsulated, inviting the elements to wreak havoc on the connections themselves. As you can plainly see, they have.
  • Dressing: None.

Now look at our custom made cables:

  • Cable Construction: These cables are made from our Pure OFC Cable which meets the AWG specification, is super flexible, and and is tinned for corrosion resistance.
  • Size: We upped the main cable size to 2 AWG, giving these cables roughly double the current carrying capacity over the same length 4 AWG CCA, perfect for starting that high compression engine on a cold day! Both of the smaller leads have been upgraded to 8 AWG for increased current carrying capability to the vehicle accessories.
  • Ring Terminals: Note that the ring terminals are far thicker, tin-plated to resist corrosion, and protected with adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to prevent the elements from attacking the connections.
  • Dressing: Our custom-made cables are covered in our split braided tubing to give them a nice finished look. In addition, they are fitted with slip-on battery clamp boots which offer excellent protection against accidental shorts.

Note that we converted to a top post style terminal as the owner wanted to convert to a top post battery at a later date, requiring the adapters in the photo.

The owner of this ’62 Impala is dropping an LS1 in it, obviously a very popular thing nowadays. In addition to the EFI, he’s also adding a 180 Amp alternator, an air-ride suspension system, and a complete aftermarket audio system.
