AbstractA battery booster cable assembly includes a pair of booster wires. Each booster wire has first and second ends with a first pair of battery clamps attached to the first ends of the booster wires and the second pair of battery clamps attached to the second end of the booster wires. A switch selectively electrically interconnects the first and second ends of one of the booster wires. A voltage detector is responsive to voltage across the switch for determining if the voltage is greater or less than a predetermined value. A red LED indicates when the detected voltage is greater than the predetermined value, while a green LED indicates when the detected voltage is less than the predetermined value. A solenoid-actuated plunger selectively precludes actuation of the switch when the detected voltage is greater than the predetermined value. The switch and the red and green LED's are carried by a housing which includes two portions selectively slidable between first and second positions. In the first position, the switch is open and the LED's are in view, while in the second position the switch is closed and the LED's are hidden from view.
