1. A low-inductance cable for implementing Kelvin connections to positive and negative terminals of an electrochemical cell or battery comprising:

  • a first cable section adapted to couple to a positive terminal with a first current-carrying conductor and a first voltage sensing conductor and to couple to a negative terminal with a second current-carrying conductor and a second voltage-sensing conductor, said second current-carrying and voltage-sensing conductors spaced apart from said first current-carrying and voltage-sensing conductors,a second cable section comprising a third current-carrying conductor, a third voltage-sensing conductor, a fourth current-carrying conductor, and a fourth voltage-sensing conductor, said fourth current-carrying and voltage sensing conductors spaced apart from said third current-carrying and voltage-sensing conductors; and

    ,a cable junction interposed between said first cable section and said second cable section, said cable junction transposing connections by interconnecting said first and fourth current-carrying conductors, said second and third current-carrying conductors, said first and third voltage-sensing conductors, and said second and fourth voltage-sensing conductors.
