This is a solid lesson that anybody who owns a car should know. I had an old car that used to die all the time (so frustrating!) and I was always bugging my Dad or my boyfriend to boost it for me. Once I realized that boosting your battery is really very simple to do, I became a lot more confident about caring for my car. I think that this would be a really good lesson to teach your young teen who is just starting out driving. Booster cables and an overall roadside safety kit are also great gifts to keep in mind for new drivers!

So handy. I'm always calling my dad and asking "is it black to black and then red to red or is it the other way around?" (It's the other way around)
