Stay a jump ahead with engine starting

ENGINES can sometimes require a lot of cranking to start in cold wet weather – a procedure which inevitably takes a toll on vehicle batteries.

To help guarantee reliable starts, AirFlow has introduced a pair of jump leads designed for improved safety and easier connection.

Unlike conventional jump leads, which are connected sequentially on battery terminals, the Kangaroo jump lead features two mating plugs which are joined in the middle to connect the circuit – after the clips have been attached to their relevant battery terminals.

The result, says AirFlow, is an elimination of sparks and less risk of danger.

Equipped with an LED light to indicate proper connection, the leads are priced at £24.99 (01635-569569). &#42
