Car Jump Starter. Start Up Project 31


9AImagine a situation. We are going for a night drive and stopped the car in a place for some purpose. Then we see that the car is not starting because the battery is flat. It is a totally confusing situation. We will be trapped if this happens in an isolated place. The only way is to leave the car there or wait till morning to purchase a new battery. Don’t worry. Keep a ‘Jump Starter’ always in the car. It will start the car in 5 minutes. Many Jump starters are available in the market but the cost is too high. We can easily make a Jump Starter using a UPS battery. How the Jump starter starts a car if its battery is flat? Actually, the Jump starter has a 12 volt battery inside. When we connect this new 12V battery across the flat car battery, the new battery shares its current to the flat battery. After 5-10 minutes, the terminal voltage of the flat car battery increases to 12.6 volts. It is sufficient to start the car. Jump starter is the improvisation of the conventional technique of connecting the flat battery of one car across the battery of another car using battery clips and wires .That is why the technique is called as “Jumper starting” or simply “Jump starting”. Now light weight Power bank type Jump starters are available with 10,000 to 15000 mAh Lithium Ion battery. These have provisions like Mobile charger, LED light, Distress signal light etc. But the cost is very high around Rs.6000- 10,000. Let us make one Jump Starter with the same provisions like Mobile charger and LED light. The Jump starter can be charged from the Lighter socket of the Car. Its cost is less than Rs.800.
