What's the difference between jumpstarters and car battery chargers?
A battery charger plugs into a regular outlet and converts the electricity into a 12-volt current to charge the battery. You use a battery charger to recharge a battery that isn't producing enough to turn on the equipment. A jumpstarter simply starts a battery so you can power on your vehicle. You then have to let the vehicle's charging system recharge it.
What accessories should I look for to go with my car battery charger?
Walmart carries a selection of accessories you can use with your battery charger. Here are a few that come in handy.
- Load Tester: Use this to assess the condition of the battery so you know if it's time to buy a new one.
- Battery Cables and Clamps: Look for cables long enough to reach from the charger to your car's battery.
- Charging Posts: Sometimes corroded terminals interfere with the battery's charging ability. Keep extra posts on hand so you can replace them instead of buying a new battery.
