    I'd suggest 15 quid Argos or Halfords will see you right.. Why pay more for something that does the job and you'll hardly use, if ever..

    Because the better they are the longer they'll last.

    I've borrowed Jump Leads that were that thin, they couldn't get the current through to boost the battery in my car.

    There are plenty on fleabay,

    you can pick up a pair of 400 or 600 amp for around a tenner.

    cant comment on how long they will last though!

    Correct, I had a set of the thin cheap leads, they wouldnt start my daughters corsa, I bought the heavy duty leads and the car went 1st time..... you get what you pay for, dont be a m1nge.

    i've got a set from tesco about £15 3 years ago, they have seen a decent amount of use and work quite well actually still. my mrs's old car needed a jump start everytime we left it more than 10 hours lol

    Why not get a jump start pack so you dont need another car

    the old guy across the street gave me a really long set that are made from old welding wire, they are really thick and start cars first time, got them free which is even better,,
