Husky 4 gauge 20' Booster Cable w/ case for $19.97 - Home Depot [homedepot.com] B&M (YMMV) and Online, FS with order of $45 or more.

This is the booster cable to get on a budget. It's 4 gauge, which means it is thick enough for use with trucks. It is 20' long so you most likely don't need to park all weird with someone else's car. It also has a great price point. I can't find many 4 gauge booster cables for under $25.

I just bought some 8 gauge, 10ft booster (jumper cables is what I've always called them ) cables for $15 and I thought it was a steal. So fml when I saw this at my local HD, a real heavy duty booster cable twice the length and twice the gauge thickness for only $6 more!

You'll kick yourself for that one or two times (or more?) that you'll need them and not have them. Comes with a nice plastic case as well. Personally, I might use the case for something else and just hide the cables around the spare area since there's usually space there for cables. It just won't be as ready to go - especially if you have a lot of junk in your trunk. Wink

Thinking outside the box, this can come in handy for some solar panels / arrays and people who use solar to either test batteries, transfer power or just harvest the cables and the clamps.


Additional info:
As per user "louze001", the construction materials are of copper clad aluminum wire for those who are interested in knowing.

From HF web page

These heavy duty booster cables are constructed from heavy duty 6 gauge CCA wire for superior performance in all climate conditions.
Color coded red and black for positive and negative terminals
Heavy duty vinyl dipped steel clamps
Copper jaws
CCA wire

CCA = copper clad aluminum like these ones

There is no way any jumper cables under $70 are solid copper.... just to let you know. This is a great price though for 4 gauge jumper cables. I literally just ordered a pair tonight on Amazon for $27.

I think it's safe to say this is a great buy if you're in the market for booster cables! Like I said in OP, I just ordered 8-gauge, 10' booster cables for slightly less. I wish I would have waited and gotten these! And as partyman66 said:

The big question with these cables is how sturdy and reliable the connections are from the cable to the handles and how the overall handle construction is in terms of spring tension, tooth design with regard to their ability to grasp various sized terminals from different directions/angles, and the general sturdiness of the handles.

I also noticed that they are written up as a 250 Amp average. I'm not sure what the "Average" is of most other cables(since this sorta depends on the battery/vehicle providing the live current), but most vendors usually advertise the peak Amperage of their cables which tends to be around 600 Amp peak for a 4-gauge cable.

This is a great price for cables. I recently spent a bit of time researching jumper cables and this is an excellent price. IF YOU NEED CABLES, GET THESE ASAP! I looked at many different sets of cables and they were all CCA Copper Coated Aluminum, it's pretty much standard and at 4-gauge, plenty of room to carry an electrical load.
I repped you! Nice find.

Maybe not even 2 months ago, some SDer pointed out that HD had 20 ft./4 ga. cables. in a plastic box for just under $15.00. I bought them at that time, and they appear to be the same cables (which I had purchased for a kid). I looked at them and noticed, to my mind (I'm nearly 70 & remember when jumper cables were really big & heavy-duty), that the thickness of the insulation and the size of the clamps are not "like they used to be". All in all though (after comparing to those at HF), I was reasonably satisfied they'd be just fine for occassional use. But they were $5.00 cheaper them (and had the plastic container). HF was fine too, for the money. You pays your money, and you takes your choice.
