4/0 AWG Battery Interconnect, 5 ft, Black-BB End Color
Use these 4/0 AWG, Black end color cables between a battery bank and an inverter, fuse or power center. They have flexible stranded UL Listed copper wire and 3/8" diameter lugs. Lug barrels are covered with glue-filled heat-shrink tubing. Cables are marked in red heat-shrink tubing for positive and white heat-shrink on black wire for negative.052-04005-B
Why Use a Larger Cable?
Low-voltage power systems with inverters can have very high current flows in the cables that connect the inverter to the batteries. Large AC loads like microwave ovens, toasters, irons and washers can cause an inverter operating on a 12-volt battery to draw over 100 amps. Large motors may draw 300 to 500 amps at start-up. Using cables that are too small between batteries and from batteries to inverter, will limit the current available to the inverter and may prevent a large load from operating properly.
