I mean car a battery. I have a cheap charger, but that thing seems to
not work very well. I was checking battery boosters and chargers and
see that the tech has improved drastically from a large wheeled box to
a small lithium box you can carry around in the glove box.
I've found in general there are three kinds of
One, I'd call a charger. Plugs into extension
cord, and changes 110 VAC to 12 VDC. Those
range from float chargers to wheeled charger
Second, commonly called jumper cables. These
use a running vehicle to provide battery power
to a vehicle with low or dead battery.
Third is what I personally call a booster. Has
a battery of its own. Clips to the car battery.
The internal battery needs to be charged between
uses (and on occasion as they go dead from the
passage of time).
That said, I've tried three battery boosters. One
from Harbor Freight didn't work, and got returned.
One from BJ's Wholesale Club had a battery that
went dead, and I was able to buy another battery.
Years later, a third battery.
The more expensive (About $100) from Napa booster
pack is on its first battery, and should still work
As to the lithium cell boosters, I've never used one,
and can't comment on them.
Thank you. Those guys seemed to be pleased. I
noticed they didn't jump a real car as part
of their description. But, such is brief
I'm OK with the old booster pack for now. But
when I'm in auto parts stores, I will be sure
to view the products, and check prices.
Don't you just hate it when you go to your
book shelf and pull down a book of "Lassie
and the tin horn". You curl up with a
blanket, and open the book. The book is
about injection molding plastic in the

It took you years before you learned where to type your reply --
either top or bottom. How long will it take you to learn how to either
reply to the original thread or start an entirely new thread WITH A
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SUBJECT!
Also, the previous thread didn't start out about Lassie and drift to
plastic. You hijacked the farkin thread right out of the box. You're
becoming more like that son of a bitch at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. every
day -- It's not my fault!
By the way, Happy new year.

Pat Goss used to have a great show live on WRC, DC, probably on
Sundays, but he's wrong when he says battery cables are obsolete and
I carry them and a girl asked me for a jump just two weeks ago.
