Car Jump Starter

For many families, the holidays mean a lot of travel. The only thing that can make a long drive worse is car failure.

Unfortunately, these troubles can happen in any weather and at any time, and are hard to predict. If your car has high mileage, or if you live in a cold place where you often can't start your car, you should consider getting a portable car starter.

Failing to start your car can ruin your day, and a friendly neighbor with a pair of jumper cables and an open hood is less likely than ever to come to your rescue.

How to start a car with a car starter?

1. Place the vehicle battery.

It is usually located in the engine compartment under the hood, but in some vehicles it is located in the boot. It could be hidden under a plastic box - open this up and you should see the battery and its two terminals.

2. Identify the positive and negative terminals.

Look at the battery and tell the positive from the negative.Each terminal should be marked with a +(plus) sign for the positive terminal and a -(minus) sign for the negative terminal. It is important to know which is which, as it is very important to ensure that the battery is properly connected to start successfully and avoid dangerous accidents.

3. Connect the positive and negative cables of the battery.

The starter cables are very short and you need to connect them directly to the battery. If your car starter is like this, make sure all attachments, such as lights and radio, are important to turn off and the key is not lit.

When connecting battery positive and negative cables, connect the positive cable first and then the negative cable with caution.

4. Start the car with the car starter.

Make sure the two wires are securely connected to their jumper points. If you hit a power line or a car, you don't want them to burst. When finished, start the car with the car starter. Let it run for 15 to 20 minutes. If you do everything right, it should start right away. Unlike chargers that charge the battery slowly, jump-starters generate electricity to start your car immediately, and then once it's up and running, it can charge the battery.

5. Drive to the nearest garage.

Once your car fails to start, you need to thoroughly inspect your car.
