    Let's say you truck battery is dead, Would you be able to plug in your jumper into the truck and have enough juice to jump the truck battery?

    Are you still having battery problems after buying a new battery? Or is this question "hypothetical"

    It won't put out a lot of amps to charge the battery. I you can't find the draw put a battery cut off switch. The more times you jump the battery the shorter the battery's life gets

    Yes, my battery died once and I used my droid to recharge the battery, or maybe it was the other way around.

    Only if you put the charger on 10 or 20 amps or you'll blow the fuse. Direct to the battery is best, and the fastest

    Not at all... I have plowed most of my life and never had any folks I could ask questions without feeling like I was asking my competition. It is nice.

    Most of you are very knowledgeable and all are seem to be willing to help.

    It is a good thing to meet you all.
