I'm sure this is a question that anyone with an ounce of electrical knowledge can answer... I've got a braille battery, but I don't have the 10mm bolts that come with it to attach the cables from the car. Can I use any 10mm bolts from the hardware store or is there a certain alloy or metal I should use?

Any connector that makes a good electrical connection will work, yes a 10mm bolt from the hardware store will be great.

Anything conductive will work, but brass or copper are your best bet if you can find them. McMaster-Carr probably has them in both.

Thanks guys. I ended up at Home Depot, picked up two steel/zinc coated 6-1.0 12mm bolts and a couple washers. Works well.
