Melvina,

if you have only a couple of frosty nights a year, a juper cable can lenghten a battery use for at least two years.
And ... uhm ... what is this post about ?

And if you have a boat / a bigger lawn mower / or an electric voltage converter (that you don't want to put near the running engine) like me, you will need a jumper cable several times a month without really needing new batteries.

I'm using my jumper cable either with my car's battery or the boat's battery, if I'm in need of bigger tools for some repairs.
Hav you ever tried to connect to the battery of a 70 years old wooden swedish boat that you converted from a Penta to an electric driven one?

#4 If you are 43, that means you were 18 in 1995. Last year of middle school? Or just an old pic/post...

Sula,
You think all these posts are brand new? You are good at simple math, but you missed the obvious understanding.
