Can a Duralast jump starter kit start a car while plugged into an outlet?

I need to jump my car and do not have hours to wait for the Duralast kit to charge all the way. A friend is coming to help, but I am wondering if I can run an extension cord from the house to the kit so that it is plugged in while I attempt to start the car. Could this damage the house, outlet, starter kit, or my car in any way?

The charger to a Jumpstart charges at a low rate (300mA to 500mA) and will not push enough current to start a car. Best to have Jumpstarts recharged every 6 months to be ready for emergency.

I had the same problem today and I found out that is the battery itself causing the problem. It's actually the connection. So disconnect the battery and scratch the battery pins and connect them again. If you can dip them in soda water (no sugar in it!) that would be better.
This problem starts as the battery beggins to get old and combined with cold weather outside becaomes a receipe for disaster. Anyway, if you can't afford a new battery at the moment remove your battery from your car (but first try and drain it totally...leave a light on or something) and recharge it (fully) with the duralast (havbe the duralst plugget into a outlet). It will have your battery working for couple of weeks.

There is a battery inside which may need to be replaced. To check, run the compressor (it runs off
the battery) - if the compressor dies quickly, then the battery has failed to charge and would
need to be replaced. You may want to check your Warranty Management software (or
shoebox) to see if your Starter/Air Compressor is still under warranty - if so, replace it.

product with replacement batteries or other replacement parts (or even an online Users manual).

Since you say, it is a 12v DC portable Jump starter, the battery inside it is also a 12V battery. You need a 12V charger (eliminator, wall adaptor or whatever you may call it) Regarding current, it could be anything above 500 mA. Better if it is a 1A or 2A or even 3 A depending on the amount you are willing to spend. Now is the most important part. The polarity. I do not know it since i do not have this equipment. Most chances are that you will find (on the RoadPro) a circle and a dot (along with a +VE and -VE marked near it) around where you plug in the adaptor. For most equipments the outer circle is the -ve and the inner dot is the +ve. (unfortunately this could be reversed in some equipments) If you can find this notation on your RoadPro you are lucky. Just go to any electronic shop and buy an adaptor (12V) that matches this circle and dot notation. The same symbol representing polarity will be marked on the adaptor also. Else, you will need the assistance of someone who can check the continuity using a multimeter. This way you can find the polarity. It is pretty easy. Hope this helps.

1995 Ford Taurus not starting. Sometimes it starts and sometimes the starter won't turn over not even a click. Wait half an hour and it may work fine. Starter less than a year old as is the battery


Even though new-ish, I'd still suspect the battery has no charge, ask a friend to give you a jump start. Then give your car a good run, 20 miles, if is doesn't work again the next day either the battery fails to keep its charge or the alternater isn't charging it. A good garage will be able to test either for you, you'll need to change the failing part.
