Black & Decker introduces Simple Start Vehicle Battery Booster
Richmond Hill, Ontario – Black & Decker has introduced its new Simple Start Vehicle Battery Booster, which gives a car’s battery a boost from inside the vehicle, with no need for jumper cables or for another vehicle to arrive to help.
The booster uses a DC adapter plugged into the car’s 12-volt DC outlet; after several minutes, a boost indicator LED and audible beep indicates that the battery is charged and the car is ready to start. A built-in LED light offers emergency lighting; the device can also be used to charge cell phones. It recharges via a household AC outlet or the car’s 12-volt DC outlet.
The booster is available for $59.99 at major home centres and hardware stores.
