Jump starting a vehicle has never been easier thanks to the 175A Jump Start Leads from Hard Korr. Team these up with the Hard Korr Heavy Duty Battery Box and a suitable battery and the whole process is as good as plug and play.
This cable is made with 2 metre long 175A cables that feature heavy-duty insulated clamps on one end to connect to the vehicle being started, and an Anderson plug at the other end which plugs straight into the 175A outlet of the Hard Korr Battery Box, making an already simple way to integrate a second battery into your vehicle even more useful.

Staff tip:Heads up! These cables are designed for use with the Hard Korr Battery Box. They may be compatible with other portable power packs with a 175A output, but we recommend checking your operating manual for further information.
Lithium Battery Compatibility1 answer
I have seen other brands suggest similar products only be used with AGM auxiliary batteries. Is this safe to use to jump start a dead cranking battery with a deep cycle lithium battery in the box?
Vincent - Black Forest, SA(11 months ago)
Can't speak for the other brands sorry, but you wont have any issues using the 175A jumper output for jump-starting your vehicle with an internal lithium battery. The battery itself would usually be capable of delivering far more that 175A, so double-check whether or not your battery has a BMS with current protection & those specifications. Jump-starting a very flat or super dead battery can draw a whole whack of amps initially until it recovers some voltage, and it may need to send out several bursts of that at the beginning. If the battery itself doesn't have current protection, the jump cables will get very hot & potentially short, so consider whether or not you'd need to install a fuse.
For the most part though, if you're just doing normal jump starts on batteries that are not long flat, you should be fine.

Is the amp rating high enough to jump start a 4WD?1 answer
Many vehicles need up to 1000amps to be jump started. Even the smallest engines can need up to 300amps. Is this battery box / lead combination capable of jump starting a V6 petrol 4WD like a Toyota Prado? I have a 120ah deep cycle battery.
Bryce - Gaythorne, QLD(2 years ago)
The 175A Anderson plug rating is for continuous delivery of current, not for the short burst required for a jump start, and most output ratings will be referring to continuous current capacity. The gauge wires on these jump start cables are more than capable of delivering what will be required for your vehicle.
Generally, if your battery box has a jump start output you should be fine, but if you have any doubts you'll need to check the Maximum discharge current of your particular battery. Different brands and chemistries may have different figures. The Hard Korr AGM 125Ah battery we stock, as an example, can do 1200A for 5 seconds.

Can you get a 6 meter length1 answer
Rather than having to try to lug the box out of the back of the Ute can you get a 6 meter length with Anderson plug?
Peter - Sydney(3 years ago)
There is just the one length of jumper leads available for the battery box, so you're limited to 2m. It may be possible to have an auto-electrician wire up something a little longer, however, Hard Korr doesn't manufacture a longer option.

Will these only work if VSR fitted to battery box?1 answer
Pajero diesel alternator needs DC DC charger, don’t think I need VSR.
Bernard - South Fremantle(3 years ago)
You won't need a VSR to use the 175A Jum Start Leads, just plug the leads in, connect to your main battery and you're all set.

Wire size 1 answer
What is the wire size in B&S ?
ben sutton - Darwin (3 years ago)
I've just called Hard Korr to check this for you, the wire size in AWG/B&S Gauge is 4AWG or 25mm squared.
