Jump Leads

Battery jump leads are a pair of leads that are used to recharge a flat car battery by connecting it to the battery in another car or a generator. They are more commonly referred to as just ’jump leads’.
Jump leads have a consistent colour standard with one red lead and one black lead. The red lead is the lead that is connected to the positive terminal on the donor battery/power generator and the flat battery. The black lead is connected to the negative terminal on the donor vehicle/power generator and then to a suitable earthing point (such as the chassis) on the vehicle with the flat battery.
The end of each jump lead is fitted with a large, heavy-duty crocodile clip. This makes it incredibly easy to make the necessary connections.
Jump leads a great way of temporarily recharging a dead battery in your car. Jump leads can be used by practically anyone, but you should always adhere to your vehicle handbook and safety instructions. For example, you must never attempt to recharge a battery that is leaking, corroded or damaged in any way.
