Battery cable

Guys

I am sure its been asking a million times before, I just can't seem to find the post which tell me what I want

I need to get new battery cable, probably about 3-4 meters, where can I get this from? Is there somewhere local in southampton, or is it better to order online? How much should I expect to be paying?

Thanks

Ben

Ah, from what was said before, it looks like : Cable Size = 2 AWG (34mm2) is what I need!

Pop own to Barden Batteries in Segensworth (near Makro)
they keep just about any size of cable in stock. Also supply all the fittings you would need including lugs, splitters etc...
Their prices are going up 4.5% in June though.

Guys,

I am looking at this stuff here : Black Flexible 35mm˛ Battery Cable - CAB009 but, dont people normally recommend the thick stranded stuff? rather than lots of thin stuff?

This seems quite cheap, so worst case scenario I can do this for now, and replace later when I can find the thick core stuff
