A pair of electrical cables that are used to start a car, truck, etc., when its battery is not working by connecting the battery to another source of power (such as another car's battery) : cables used to jump-start a vehicle.
Jumper cables, also known as booster cables or jump leads, are a pair of insulated wires of sufficient capacity with alligator clips at each end to interconnect the disabled equipment/vehicle with an auxiliary source, such as another vehicle or equipment with the same system voltage or to another battery.
A lower number is thicker wire. Most jumper cables are 2-, 4-, or 6- gauge. Household wiring in the walls is 12- or 14-gauge; appliance and lamp cords are 16- or 18-gauge. Thicker is better but also heavier and bulkier.
