A crocodile clip or alligator clip is a sprung metal clip with long, serrated jaws that are used for creating a temporary electrical connection. This simple mechanical device gets its name from the resemblance of its jaws to those of an alligator or crocodile.
It is used to connect an electrical cable to a battery or some other component.
When manufactured for electronics testing and evaluation, one jaw of the clip is typically permanently crimped or soldered to wire or is bent to form the inner tubular contact of a ~4 mm female banana jack, enabling the quick non-permanent connection between a circuit under test and laboratory equipment or to another electrical circuit.
Large versions of these clips, called automotive clips or battery clamps, are made of solid copper for low electrical resistance and are used with thick insulated copper cables to make connections between automobile batteries.
