Kodiak Industries manufactures all of its cabling from ultra-fine copper cable that features 648 individual copper wires configured in 47 strands wound together in 14 bundles. This type of cable remains flexible while achieving maximum conductivity with minimal impedance for a given size. For each of the cable ends, Kodiak's owner Yawan Smith crimped the terminal to the wire using a military- and UL- approved crimping system. Next, a special silver solder was used to finalize the connection. This method provides a super strong and ultra-conductive connection between the copper cable and the crimped terminal. These little details make all the difference with high amperage demand.
