Everything you need, in one convenient kit 

Why hunt around the web or your local big box store for the wires, fuses, and hardware you need to install a secondary battery in your vehicle? Save yourself some time and hassle with an XS Power wiring kit. You'll get everything you need — power wire, ground wire, fuses, fuse holders, wire ties, and even screws.

Rated for 1000 to 1500 watts, the AK1000 is designed to make installation as painless and easy as possible. The ring terminals are already crimped onto the wire, so all you'll really need for installation is a screwdriver and a tool to strip a small section of wire that goes into the fuse holder. Warranty: 1 year

Skeptical

Just wire and knickknacks actually is a decent price compare to 2 AWG welding cable. Possibly even cheaper with the knickknacks included. It doesn't say if this is copper or CCA though. The car I put it in is no longer around. Guess I should have checked before hand. Details say 10% OFC, I'm not sure what that means. I'm going to assume it's CCA which would make sense why it's competitively priced with welding cable. If it is actually 100% copper then it's a nice deal.

Pros: Good price if it's pure copper

Cons: Unclear what wire is made out of, if it's CCA then it's much too small.

Customer Q&A

3 questions already asked

Q
Can this kit be used to wire up a DC to AC converter in the rear hatch area of my hatchback? The wires that come with a Cobra DC to AC converter are only 2 feet long or so and come with alligator clips. I want to wire it in to my trunk/rear hatch area.

Yes, 18ft of positive wire, if I remember correctly. Personally I've always wired my converters off of a capacitor (due to the short lengths of power/ground that come with converter). Kinda went beyond the question. Yes it should work fine
[ Ryan  Mar 09, 2019 ]
Q
What gauges are the wires, how long are they, and how many amps are the fuses rated at?
[ Michael  Mar 24, 2015 ]

A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The power wire is 4 gauge and is 18 feet long. The ground is 4 gauge and is 3 feet long. The fuses are rated at 150A. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
