Black 1/0 AWG Battery Cable – 100′. Features: ANCOR Marine Grade wire is manufactured from tinned copper stranding for maximum protection against corrosion and electrolysis. Ultra flexible (Type 3) stranding resists fatigue due to vibration and flexing. ANCORs proprietary premium vinyl insulation stays flexible even in extreme cold and resists salt water, battery acid, oil, gasoline and ultra-violet radiation. Exclusive insulation is rated at 600V, 105 DegreesC dry and 75 DegreesC wet, and is resistant to heat and abrasion. Exceeds all UL 1426, US Coast Guard Charter boat (CFR Title 46) and ABYC standards

For wiring saltwater boats and beach buggies, I use nothing but Ancor.
Have used Ancor wire many years, I’ve used close to a mile of it and it has never failed.
Unless you properly insulate the terminals, this wire will fail like every copper wire made.
Adhesive lined heat shrink is very important in protecting your connections.
All my terminals are tinned.
I solder and use adhesive lined heat shrink on all my terminals and have never had a corrosion or oxidation problem.
I know when I use this wire I will never have to rewire.
Use Ancor and waterproof you connections, 10 maybe 20 years from now, you’ll be glad you did.

Update: I bought some 1-Ga wire and it’s equally fantastic. Just really really good quality wire. Note, I use this in a non-marine application, but I choose to pay more because I know it will carry my current needs without undue resistance. I’m worried that some of the no-name cheaper brands will suffer from brittle, oxidated wire, fewer strands, and could pose a fire hazard. I’ve seen reviews of other wires sold on here that are green on the inside and are brittle, which in, for example, an auto audio setting, is not ideal, but in a house power system could cause a deadly fire.

This is probably a little heavy for my needs (I could get by with 18 Ga.), but I wanted a good, all around wire for 12V applications. This suited me fine. I figured tinned wire would hold up better for use in a Kayak.
The wire has a nice, heavy jacket, and only melts a little when you solder it in,lol. Overall, I’m well pleased with my purchase.
