Re: [EVDL] EV Digest, Vol 3, Issue 6

They have holes drilled, but Spectro wire and Cable
has mega lugs in up to 1 ga with #10 holes, 0ga and up
come in 1/4" hole sizes. I just finished up using some
of these to remake battery cables for a GEM car I
resurrected and they are quite a beefy lug, nice tin
plating as well. I have a bag full of 2/0 size mega
lugs for my Saturn when I get around to finishing it's
re-conversion up.

You might call them and see if they would make you
some without holes drilled if 1/4" holes won't work,
but I would be concerned with this because if you
drilled you'd have exposed copper so you'd kind of
have to get unplated undrilled lugs, drill the holes
as desired then have them plated before crimping them
on and using them.

I've held some BB600's in my hands before and I know
what your concern is with the contact area, but I
would imagine the 1/4" would be about what you need.
