Battery cables in aluminium

Hydro battery cables are extruded solid aluminium rods that offer significant advantages in material, weight, and cost for your car’s electrical system.

As a standard, the cables are HYCOT® coated with either polyamide (PA) or polyethylene (PE/XPE) coatings and can be delivered in round, flat or oval shapes.

Aluminium battery cables for all types of passenger vehicles

Our aluminium battery cables can be applied in electric, hybrid and fossil fuel cars.

Some vehicle designs today, especially for hybrid models, place the battery away from the engine. This fosters and increases the weight and cost-saving potential that aluminium cables provide.
