Started my car when the battery was completely dead
February 9, 2019
This thing is awesome. It started my car with no trouble with a completely dead battery. Now, I have to admit, I bought more power than I needed --1500A is overkill for my Audi TT's 4 cylinder. But still, it's nice to know that you have a battery that can start your car even when the battery is totally dead.
Also, the device won't let you hook it up backwards. The only thing I really dislike about my car is that the battery terminals aren't labelled -- both have black wires. When starting with a dead battery, you have to hold down a "boost" button so the charger knows to tell it to send power even when it can't detect a battery and this wouldn't work with the terminals reversed. Once I had the terminals on right, the boost button started flashing green and my car started! Very Cool. Your milage may vary -- I'm assuming the battery had some charge in it, just not enough to turn on anything on the interior of the car.
