    Knukonceptz Klm Vs. all copper cable?

    Whats the difference in terms of amount of current that can go through it compared to hyperflex and all copper cable? Knukonceptz KLM has a silver jacket and would match my jeep's color

    whatever cable i get will be for the big 3 only.

    the color of the jacket...well KLM and hyperflex will be more flexable and bend alot easier, but pure copper(welding wire) will be alot cheaper and work just as well.

    The difference is not that great -- for the big 3, being such small runs, the current carrying difference will be almost non-existent.

    KLM is less flexible than other stuff such as Hyperflex, though.

    knu klm 1/0 is 1.75/ft

    and the klm is larger diameter to make up for the materials differences

    The KLM is CCA, or copper coated aluminum, and is also not as flexible as some others. But as said above, it has a larger wire diameter to compensate for the material difference.

    KLM is a lot less flexible than hyperflex.

    Pure copper is a LOT more expensive than CCA wire.
