Try getting the cables from Powerwerx. They also supply the Anderson powerpole connectors.

I was looking at SJEOOW Seoprene Cu cable from Southwire (similar to the power cable that goes from the power source to 12-24V input on the CP5). Those are rated at 300V and stay quite flexible even at very low temperature (rated from -50 to 105 Celsius). The 16/2 nominal DCR is 4.05 Ohms/1000ft and composed of 26 strands of 30 AWG conductors. 

If I can find it somewhere in bulk quanity, I should be good to go.
