A New, Cleaner Way To Charge Your Battery
There is little as frustrating as getting in the car and finding out that the battery is dead. So you find someone who can give you a jump start, haul the cables out of the trunk while hoping they are long enough, open the hoods and link up. Sure, it's not that hard to do, but it is a bit of a hassle and you are always going to get a bit dirty. Not anymore -- battery charging has been brought into the 21st century.
With the Closed-Hood Car Jump Starter you don't have to mess around anywhere near the engine. In fact you don't need to lift the hood of either car at all. You still need someone with a running vehicle, but then all you do is hook one cigarette lighter into the other. A light will glow on the device to let you know when you are completely hooked together properly. Then you just sit back and take a break for about 5-10 minutes.
When the green light glows, you are ready to disconnect and go. No muss, no fuss, and even in the dark there is no need for a flashlight. The generous 18-foot cord also means that you won't need to worry much about getting the working car terribly close.
The gadget is also more compact than standard jumper cables so that they will take up less space and store much more neatly.
The Closed-Hood Car Jump Starter is a great idea for people with car batteries that are not so easily accessible and for people who are nervous about using regular jumper cables.
