One thing to keep in mind, if your battery is low or dead and you need to start your car it's the starter motor that you need to connect to not the battery! Once the car is running, and you remove the negative cable clamp from the engine ground then the positive cable clamp from the batteries positive post. You're charging system then will take over. If the battery or alternator is damaged the battery will not keep a charge. (I repeating what other have said) If the battery has a dead cell ,connecting a good battery directly to the dead battery will overheat the dead battery in seconds. The electrolyte solution inside your battery is a mix of sulphuric acid (35 per cent) and water (65 per cent). Getting sulphuric acid in your eyes and on your skin will send you to the hospital with serious burns. Alway use eye protection when working with a car battery!Note: an electronic booster box will detect a dead cell and will shut down, a car battery will not!
