    I always check my alternator charge and the moment when I start the car and if it feels a bit different (hard starting) I change the battery right away. I know it will still last for about a week but better be safe and sure. I just had my cable booster on my car trunk.

    where do you attach the other side of your cable to?
    i mean, not every other car owner will allow their car to be connected to a stranger's car...

    Well, the cable booster has been in my car for more than 10yrs and glad that I never use it even once. Worst case scenario if there will be no available car to jump start I just call my car insurance 24/7 assist or call motolite.

    Test it. I once found out too late the thick jumper I had sitting was all insulation w/ few thin strands inside. It did nothing. This is the 'peace' I've been carrying since.

    ako din pag naramdaman ko na pahina na ang battery papalitan ko na

    i don't get why people still put up with a battery that can no longer keep power overnight

    hassle yan eh

    1. cost. it is easy to put up with it, if one does not have the money to buy a new battery. as i recall, in our younger years, we would push-start the car for 1-2 months, before finally coming up with the money for a new battery. well... re-built battery. it's cheaper than a brand new battery by a couple of hundred... 200 hundred bucks was already big money back then.

    2. ignorance re. the nature of dead battery syndrome.

    dati di pa uso ang jump starter... sa umaga pag ayaw mag start i'd charge the battery with a 12V charger for several minutes -- just enough power for the starter to crank then let the alternator continue charging the battery

    i'd drive without aircon para mas mabilis mag charge haha

    then later in the day pag balik sa kotse fingers crossed sana mag start

    the things i used to put up with

    it would appear,
    you answered your own question above.

    i also charge my dead battery, just so's i can start the car.
    my next stop, is the battery store. fortunately, it's near the workplace.

    a dying battery can keep power for a few hours but not overnight

    pwede pa tiisin ung every morning jump start

    in the course of the day no need to jump start

    dati i put up with that pero now pag hirap na mag start sa umaga pinapalitan ko na

Amaron battery
