A charger is not a jump starter

Time: 2010-04-20

The portable jump starter, or booster pack, is a convenient device that acts like the battery of another vehicle foldable work light and comes equipped with its own alligator clamps to attach to the battery in your car. Anyone can forget to switch the car LED spot light off and cause the battery to go flat.

An emergency jump starter pack or battery booster allows drivers to start their own car without having to flag down passing motorists or call a mechanic for help. This is safer, cheaper and more reliable. Especially late at night, on deserted roads or in the middle of winter.

The jump starter can also be used as an alternative to a backup generator: for disaster preparedness, camping, tailgating or to run power tools (instead of using cordless tools).

Jump starters use rechargeable 12 volt lead-acid batteries just like a regular car battery (though they use smaller batteries). They weigh between 20 to 30 pounds and cost from $70 to over $100. Warranties are typically 2 years. Popular brands include Everstart, Black & Decker (Simple Start), Duracell, Husky, Schumacher, Duralast, Endurance and Vector.

"Battery booster" can mean an emergency charger or a jump starter. A charger is not a jump starter. The difference is explained below.
