Jump leads

i need to get myself a set of jump leads, but haven't a clue what amp rating to go for. the ones i've found on ebay range from 80 to 800 amps. what rating would i need to be on the safe side?

Not sure what the min rating would be best but make sure the cables are a nice large size. I once had a set sold in a motor factors and they never worked! The cable was very thin. I made a set myself using 16mm cable and they have never failed me.
