How to jump your car battery without cables!

Mag visits a product showcase and finds out about an insanely cool new product for your car.



I've heard of these. Did you try it? (I suppose you'd need a dead battery first...) I guess it makes sense, since the cig lighter is just battery power going to a heater, so the circuit is there, with the right adapter. I wonder how much cranking power the B&D tool has...


I've never heard of this, but I think its pretty cool that a dead battery could do that. People inventing new things, its like wow what will they think of next? Great video by the way Mag, I can tell that you had fun. Like Bob I want to know, if you have tried it yet?


Hi guys,
I've ordered one of these to try it out. Will get back to you on how it performs on my old ride.



ooky dooky, thanks Mag!
