What Are Jump Starters?

The simple answer to the question of what are jump starters is that they are like jumper cables, but they don't require a second car. Also called jump boxes or battery boosters, they provide all the power that you need to start a car with a battery that's run out of juice. Most come with an AC adapter that you plug into a wall outlet to keep the box charged. You'll also find jump starters that have built-in lights that come in handy in the dark, especially while clamping the cables to the battery terminals.

Compatible, Durable, and Portable Jump Starters

You don't need to spend a lot of time comparing models to find compatible and durable jump starters. Jump boxes are compatible with almost all makes and models. If you have multiple vehicles at home, you can buy one that works for all of those cars. Durable and portable jump starters are suitable for using when you're away from home. You can keep one in your trunk or glove box so you'll be ready in the event of a dead battery. As long as the box has a full charge, you can use it anywhere.

How to Jump-Start Your Vehicle

There aren't any tricky details that you need to know when learning how to jump-start your vehicle. You first need to locate the red and black clamps on the starter. The red clamp goes on the positive terminal and the black clamp goes on the negative terminal. Generally it's a good idea to leave the jump starter off before you get everything clamped into place, but some of these boxes have precautions built in to prevent any electrical current from flowing if it isn't clamped on right. Check the instructions that come with the product of your choice to determine the proper operating procedure.

You can then flip the switch or twist the knob to turn on the jump starter. Try turning over the engine to see if the car comes on. If it remains off, turn the ignition off and wait at least two minutes before you try again. Once the engine comes on and stays on, you can leave it running as you turn off the jump starter and remove the clamps. You'll then want to plug in the jump starter to recharge it.

Here are a few handy tips to help you stay safe when using a jump starter:
- Make sure that the jump starter has a full charge.
- Use it in a safe location away from flammable materials and other hazards.
- Try using the light and electronic charger in advance to see how quickly they can drain the starter.
- Check the clamps for signs of corrosion before using them.

Dead car batteries are an inconvenience that can happen at any time of the day or night. A dead battery might leave you vulnerable and stranded on the side of the highway or in a less-than-safe place.
