In addition to a wide range of batteries, Biltema also offers battery accessories. We have everything from battery water, battery cables, and battery cable lugs to various types of earth cables. In the Battery Accessories category, you will also find products such as battery terminal cleaners, battery clamps, and connection cables – anything that may be needed for your vehicle battery.
Battery cables – with and without cable lugs
Battery cables are used to connect the battery to the alternator or starter. The multicore copper cables have PVC insulation.
Keep in mind that some of our battery cables are equipped with cable lugs while others are sold without lugs.
Battery cable lugs– single or quick-connecting
Cable lugs are usually fully moulded and are typically sold in pairs. Since the positive terminal of the battery (marked with +) is larger, the positive terminal lug also has a larger inner diameter. This is to reduce the risk of incorrect connection, which can cause damage to your car.
Our quick-connecting cable lugs can easily be fitted to and removed from a battery, with no need for tools, if you need to take the battery indoors during extreme cold or for maintenance charging, for example. The types of battery cable lugs are also equipped with a terminal cover.
If you have an older battery type with opening vent caps, the battery water may need to be refilled to compensate for the evaporation that normally occurs in the battery type. Battery water is a demineralised and deionised water that is used in car batteries, but it can also be mixed with glycol in the cooling systems of modern vehicles.
Battery clamps are used as jump starter cables to start the battery in your vehicle. Battery clamps are either red or black to easily identify which terminals the clamps must be connected to. The clamps have a plastic-insulated handle.
Battery terminal cleaner
Battery terminal cleaners are used to easily clean the inside and outside of the battery terminals, as well as the cable lugs connected to and used for your vehicle battery. Oxidized surfaces on the battery terminals and terminal lugs can reduce the starting power by up to 25%, so get into the habit of regularly cleaning the terminal and lug contact and lubricate with battery terminal grease.
Remember to: Recycle your battery!
Old vehicle batteries are considered hazardous waste and must therefore be handed in to a recycling centre or to the distributor from which you purchase a new battery to ensure that they are recycled correctly.
Before recycling your batteries, we advise you to check which local rules and guidelines must be followed when recycling hazardous waste.
