A portable jump starter ensures you the convenience of being able to boost a car battery on your own, without the need for another vehicle. You can keep one in the boot or back seat of your car and never have the worry of your car battery dying and having no one around to help you.

This is especially important during the winter when vehicle battery power can be restricted by the cold temperatures. The portable models work similar to the standard jump starters.

Lift the car bonnet up. Prop it up with the hood support rod or hood support latch.

Press and hold the fuel gauge switch on the portable jump starter to check the charging status.

Squeeze the handles on the red clamp to open it. Attach it onto the positive terminal on the car battery.

Squeeze the handles on the black clamp to open it . Attach it onto the edge of the car bonnet.

Turn the key in the ignition to start the car. The car should start with no problems. You can then remove the clamps and store the portable jump starter unit back in your car.
