The world of cars is a complex and ever-evolving place. With so many different models, makes and types of vehicles on the market today, it can be hard to keep up with what’s new in the industry.
One thing that has not changed much over the years is how we charge our car battery at home or in an emergency situation. Sure, there are now more options for charging your vehicle than ever before – but have you considered lengthening your cables? What if I told you that it’s possible to extend car battery cables by yourself with just two items from your local hardware store? Sounds crazy right? Well stick around – because this post will show you exactly how!

Why to extend car battery cables
Is it safe to extend car battery cables?
It is important to determine the amount of cable that needs to be extended for a certain task, and then add an additional 8mm cable for every 10 feet of wire needed. If no wire gauge information is given, it’s best to use 12-gauge wire. With this new extension from the battery’s positive terminal to a bolt on a metal surface within reach, it becomes possible to replace a discharged car battery with some emergency jumper cables. But before starting the project, ensure that both cars have their engines off while charging jumpers in one car so as not to let its engine start up while there are still wires dangling from another vehicle!
