Phillips Industries says its Clear-Vu battery jumpers allow early detection of costly corrosion buildup. Maintaining electrical capacity is critical to maximizing the reliability of a vehicle, but with standard black and red battery cables, corrosion is hidden, silently robbing power from a trucks’ electrical system.

Replacing OEM battery cables with Clear-Vu cables allows users to see any corrosion developing from the inside, which Phillips says ultimately could prevent replacing an alternator, starter and battery. The heavy wall shrink tubing is designed to provide additional corrosion protection by stopping water and contaminants from entering the charging system.

Clear-Vu battery cables are available in smoke and translucent red in both two- and three-lug configurations. For more information, go to
