Converter wire size

I'm installing a power max boondocker 75 amp charger. What size wiring would you recommend. Also what connecter can I put on the cable at the converter end, on battery I'm putting 3/8 lug.

The goal is to conserve max volts at max amps. A voltage loss of 1% or less is ideal. See:

Voltage Drop Calculator

Most converters have a direct female socket to plug in bare wire. Either trim some strands or add 2 inches of a lesser gauge that fit soldered to the fatter wire to fit if needed.
