Works great. I cut off the clamps to an old pair of jumper cables and flame soldered the wires to the contacts provided with the plug. After reassembly the plug is sturdy and gives a good fit to my electrical input connector. Five stars.

Well made, and designed to carry enough current to operate the starter. I bought this just to hook up a power supply so I can work on airplane electrical systems without depleting battery charge, but it can do much more.
