Mississippi Industries for the Blind’s Mil-Spec booster cables are designed to jump-start trucks, heavy equipment, and other vehicles.

Developed by MIB for the U.S. Military, the Mil-Spec booster cables combine 1-gauge stranded copper welding type cable with solid copper clamps for better electrical conductivity and more efficient jump starts. The cables are significantly thicker than standard 6-gauge jumper gables and each clamp and cable has a 600-amp minimum current rating.

MIB also constructs each clamp from a solid copper sheet.  In addition, the clamp jaws are serrated, and the clamps are assembled with a high tension spring to ensure a good connection to the battery terminal.  The clamps are tested to hold 500 pounds.

The oil and abrasion resistant booster cables maintain flexibility in a wide range of temperatures from -94 degrees Fahrenheit to 198 degrees Fahrenheit and are available in up to 25-foot lengths for ease of vehicle positioning.
