OK, I have a shitty lil 8-foot set that I don't know where they came from. They saved me once BUT barely. They're too darned short.

So I go on line to find a longer (16-feet minimum), somewhat better, set. OMG...the prices vary from $25 for cheap Chinc crap up to elevendy-million dollars!!!

Any suggestions?

Buy some good clamps and use welding cable.

I have a set I "borrowed" from my father.  They are about 30+ years old.  There's probably about 200 lbs of copper in this set.  Smile  Made in the USA.

Now days seems copper is non-existent.

On the upper end.....  http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200612134_200612134?cm_mmc=Google-pla-_-Batteries%2C%20Chargers%20%2B%20Jump%20Starters-_-Booster%20Cables-_-37913&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=37913&gclid=COnclZfZ1rsCFaE1Qgodz3MA_Q

Down the price range....  http://www.amazon.com/Length-Copper-Parrot-Booster-Jumping/product-reviews/B00E9ANSGU/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1

My budget I would likely go with.....  http://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Duty-Auto-Jumper-Cables-4-Gauge/dp/B0050QLVS4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_auto_4

I can't find any made in the USA.

Thanks for the help folks...today was decision day so this was timely.

Any of those suggested would undoubtedly work for us. However, whenever possible, I like to buy American plus I came across this review to boot...Best Jumper Cables: Top Booster Cables For Your Vehicle

I'm not, however, buying the 4-gauge model as the 6-gauge is just fine for us...Road Power 16' 6 Gauge Booster Cable w/Polar-Glo Clamps


I'm also saving that made in USA link for future reference. Caution on that, just because it's supposedly made in America doesn't mean it good and/or worth the money asked. There's a lot of "people" out there who'll wrap themselves in the flag to make a buck and could care less about this country, remember that. Made In The USA doesn't mean it's all made here either. There's actual guidelines setup to make the claim...sad ain't it? If it says 100% Made in USA, I believe it has to be just that.
