Battery Cable

Battery Cable Operation:

Large strands of wire housed in a protective insulated covering that carry current to the positive side of the vehicles electrical system and provides a ground on the negative side of the electrical system to complete the voltage circuit. The wire strands are usually made of copper and have eyelets or top post/side post battery terminals attached. A web or woven type cable is also available but has no protective insulating cover and is usually used as a ground cable.
