1. A clamp for providing an electrical connection to a battery comprising:

  • a first arm having a proximal end, a distal end, and an electrically conductive member at the distal end;

    a second arm having a proximal end, and a distal end;

    a joint member;

    a first pivotable connection between the joint member and the first arm defining a first axis of rotation of the first arm, about which the first arm rotates relative to the joint member;

    a second pivotable connection between the joint member and the second arm defining a second axis of rotation of the second arm, about which the second arm rotates relative to the joint member; and

    a biasing mechanism supported by the joint member and configured to bias the distal ends of the first and second arms toward each other;

    wherein;

    the first and second axes of rotation are displaced from each other in a direction that is perpendicular to the first axis of rotation; and

    the proximal ends of the first and second arms respectively extend from the first and second pivotable connections a distance configured to allow a user to overcome the bias applied to the distal ends of the first and second arms by the biasing mechanism by squeezing the proximal ends of the first and second arms together.
