Question

Is copper really that much better than CCA?

I know copper is a better conductor, but does it also stay more pliable in cold weather than the copper clad aluminum?
Is full copper worth the extra money?

The full copper is the better conductor. It is not any more pliable in colder weather. They will both become stiff in the colder temperatures.

Question

What is the difference between 4-Gauge and 2-Gauge?

I am wondering whether to get 2-Gauge jumper cables or 4-Gauge cables to keep in my car. What the heck is the difference? Which one is best? Just in case you need to know.... I have a PT Cruiser.

For wire gauge sizing, the lower the number the thicker the wire. The thicker the wire, the more electricity can be transferred to your battery. A 2 gauge wire will handle about 25% more than 4 gauge. 4 gauge would be enough for most standard passenger cars, but having a thicker set of cables will never hurt.

answer 2
Larger gauge wire can carry a higher amperage load. 4 gauge is perfectly fine for most cars, like your PT Cruiser. Jump starting a diesel, for example, might require a heavier set because of the much higher compression ratio in diesel engines(more amps drawn by the starter because it's harder to overcome the high compression ratio) and the fact that most diesels have 2 batteries.

Question

What metal are the booster cables made of?

The description lists the wire material as "CCA." Are the cables made of copper, aluminum, or aluminum with copper clad?
