Charging a car battery sounds like a simple task, but sometimes it can be a lot more complex. In fact, that's why many of us don't charge our own car batteries, but many people who are preparing for a collapse know that this is a skill we should learn how to do on our own.
After all, how should we handle a situation if we're suddenly stranded with our car and don't know how to charge the car battery? That's why it's important to learn how to do just that.
There is a well-known standard way to charge or restart a car battery. First, find out what type of car battery you have — it could be a Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery or wet cell battery, for example.
After determining what type of battery charger is needed it's ideal to keep the charger in the back of your vehicle. However, not everything keeps a car charger in the back of their vehicle and during a collapse it may not be possible to find one.
If that happens there's something else you can use, and it's quite unconventional, but it works! Hey, you never know what type of solutions you're going to have to come up with during a collapse and this is just one clever example to add to your skill set.
