Jumping a Car Battery

As a car owner you understand the importance of properly maintaining your car to ensure you and your family are safe. One part that is often overlooked is the car battery; below are some ways to jump start a car if your battery loses its charge:

  • Jumper Cables - Jumper cables are electric cables that have clips on the end that connect one car battery to another car battery to charge it and start the car.
  • Portable Battery Pack - Portable battery packs are relatively inexpensive battery packs that you can use to recharge a car battery. A portable battery pack has cables that connect to the car battery and transfer a charge from the battery pack to the car battery.
  • Standard Transmission - If you have a standard transmission, you can jump start your car by having someone push your car while you depress the clutch, and once you reach 5-7 mph, release the clutch quickly and the engine should start.
