Valucraft made a serious mistake in manufacturing their jumper cables. Valucraft BC10, BC8 Booster Cables Certain Valucraft 8 and 10 gauge booster cables imported and sold by Autozone as aftermarket equipment used to jump start automobiles and other motorized equipment including motorcycles, ATVs, boats, and lawn equipment having discharged batteries. These battery cables are either stamped 8GA or 10GA. Some of these cables were assembled incorrectly.
