I'm looking to buy a zip cable for my battery charger but crazy exspensive , mainly because they'll only sale 25 ft minumum.
I only need 5 foot of 4 gauge.

Here's what I'm hoping to build for my battery charger.

Any auto supply store will have "starter" cables. Just pick the ends you want, and of course the gauge. Also many shops that sell rv batteries will also make interconnects that can be sized for such a task.

I needed a cable for my Class C while in British Columbia and stopped at Lordco. The very helpful gentleman behind the counter made the part for me for the cost of materials.

2x on the marine supply store. They cut to length and usually have a good varied supply of terminals ends.

Amazon and my local NAPA will make up cables to your specification.

Lots of good suggestions here. Welding shop for welding cable, Home Depot has it by the foot or on a roll, or soldering my own ends on at home and using heat shrink. Don't over think this.
