Its 2016, and shops dont have websites and an ANL Fuse holder had not yet been born. However, a solution was needed and so the ANL-D Fuse mount came to be. A solution for holding your amp fuse without drilling into the unavailable (very small) space. Which you thought you could get to but would lose your socket and self tapper... Anyway engine bay's have a lot of bolts, so why not use them I said. Our Amp Racks use them, so in late 2016 we started offering them online and had only made them available with our power kits. Well they are now available as stand alones and we have a few more coming.
One thing I learned, working as a Traffic Signal and Communications Tech for the state, is that copper can withstand some extreme situations. Including crushing, being submerged in water and snow for weeks at a time to then survive summers, inches from the hot asphalt. It's so durable, that it can take 70+ years to corrode and that is at 100% exposure. So why spend the cash on the tinned OFC? Well, unless you live on the ocean or near it (like a boat) then it serves you no benefit whatsoever.
Something the "Experts" don't explain in their YouTube videos (and I'm sure after this, a video willl surface) is that DC current flows through the center of the wire strand. The more amps you pull over a distance, the hotter the wire becomes, creating more resistance in your line.
Shock-Wire's Thunder line overcomes this by using a large strand power wire, that allows the same amount of amperage to pass at a cooler temperature. Due to the larger diameter of each strand, the heat can transfer away from the center and dissipate into the jacket and so on. Allowing the flow of the current to travel with a lower resistance, thus having a higher efficiency, on longer high-amp draw runs. The fact is, its the center material that matters and that is always copper. Adding smaller strands does not help as the heat is just transferred over to the next strand. This will eventually lead to a hot core and that can turn into a wire fuse situation. Keep in mind that we are pulling large amps at times and distance becomes a factor.
Regardless of opinion, the fact is, if you maintain your battery and keep it clean you should not have any corrosion problems . Using shrink tube with glue to seal all open ends or around sharp edges will reduce issues within the jacket. Don't get taken advantage of, as it can add up.
