Hi All,
I'm looking to get some new battery terminals for my car. I currently have a $10 brass one from Repco :thumbsup: I was looking at some with digital voltage readings.. do they actually work?

Would anyone recommend any? I was looking at Stinger ones and I think Rockford had some aswell. Would these be better than say a no brander one? I've got a stupid 0gauge but it's got a thing on the end :whistling It's a Kicker 0gauge wiring kit and obviously I can't stick the end piece into the 0 gauge slot :p

Can nyone tell me how they did theirs? I'm sure I aint the only one with a wiring kit ... because my girlfriend has the rockford 0 gauge wiring kit and it's got the same stupid terminal at the end.

I'm planning to do the Big 3 upgrade ... but want to do the battery terminals aswell.

Edit: I don't know how many cables I need on the postive side yet. Gotta have a look later (at work atm)
Edit2: It's called a ring terminal on the power cable. How do you connect that to a battery terminal?

Cut the ring terminal off the 0ga and then put the wire into the battery terminal.

I have Stinger battery terminals and 0ga... The 0ga went in easily without any need for trimming.

The 0ga will still look clean without the ring terminal when it's insterted into a battery terminal.
