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 3000 to 3500 watts, the AK3000 wiring kit 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

Great cables and included everything I needed. I would like the cover for the fuse holder to be more secure. I'm certain it will come off.

Cables too big, or fuses to small, clamps are cheap

John from Waldo, WI on 2/12/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The cables are too big to fit in the fuse holders and the battery terminal clamps are very poor quality had to buy my own to get them to tighten down on a brand new Red Top Optima top post battery.

Pros: Cables are big, Kit all thing needed are there.

Cons: Cables are too big for Fuse Holders or Fuse Holders are too small. The Battery Terminal Clamps are really cheap and did not work well. Plastic wire hangers that you put the small self tapping screw through are very brittle and the screw is too short or again the diameter of the cable is too big.

A hefty cabling kit with everything I needed.

wires were long enough for a van

Pros:

Cons: pull hard crimps come off all ends

Heavy duty

Richard from Eaton Rapids, MI on 3/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They were out of the set I needed so I went with the next heaviest set and for the difference in price I'm glad that happened. Still need to install but experience tells me they will be perfect. I would rather go heavier rather than lighter.

Pros: Are the perfect match for the power inverter IO purchased there to use them with.

Cons: For my use there are no cons.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with the wire count, I am running a second battery for my 4000 watts system and MAN it's great. some companies skimp on the wires but the one is excetable. Price is perfect for what was in the box.

Pros: Wire count, allows high current

Cons: None

Probably but it all depends on your routing. You can also get bulk flex cable and all you need is end connectors that attach without crimp or soldering. [ JARED  Feb 14, 2017 ]
As long as you stay within the power ratings of it it will do just finel [ Squire C.  Feb 13, 2017 ]
Since all XS Power products ship directly from the manufacturer, we don't have as detailed of information available on them as items that we physically stock in our warehouses. As such, I'm afraid we don't have any information on the type of wire used in XS Power's AK3000 secondary battery wiring kit. You may want to try contacting XS Power's support directly for more information--you can reach them by phone at 865-688-5953. [ Larry  Dec 27, 2016 ]  Staff
