Handheld booster battery for vehicles

Recommended Posts

My daughter brought her little handheld battery booster to me, and it has an inline fuse that is blown. I pretty well know what happened, but she hasn't admitted it: I believe she must have hooked it up backward and blew it. If anybody knows what amp fuse it would take, I could solder one in line, but don't know what amperage I should try to find. It seems that cold cranking amps can vary from 350 to 650. So, anyone got a suggestion other than to toss it and get another one?

Can you post pics or model numbers to help in a search. If you can locate the bad fuse in the booster it may have amperage ratings on it.

You say "little hand held booster" which leads me to believe it is a lithion ion battery booster.  I would think they would have some safety built in for wrong hookups.  I would check to see if she used it right.  Get the instructions from her and see.  Most of the newer ones have an "ON" button to push after hook up or they will not work.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
