3 top features of the best battery jump starter

When you are in a hurry and want to leave for some meeting or pick up the kids or an appointment and you just rush to your car and turn on the ignition – but your car doesn’t start. Urghh!!! How frustrating is that! I know I have faced this so many times that I finally asked my mechanic what I should do. He told me to get a battery jump starter.

I had no clue what it was, so I told him: I will but what is it? He told me it is a simple solution to my problem that I face frequently especially in cold weather.

What is a battery jump starter?

Well if you like me don’t know what it is, here is a simple explanation. It is a device you can attach to your car when it is not igniting and your battery can be charged and you are good to go. I know it is as simple as that. I would recommend everyone to keep a battery jump starter in their car booth or garage.


Can anyone use the jump starter?

Well if I can then anyone can. At first, when I bought it, I was a bit afraid to even try it but then I learned it and it’s pretty easy. You don’t have to be a car expert to know what to do.

You need to just know the basics of the car engine like for example which one is the battery and where to connect the jump wires. But if you have good knowledge about the engine using it will be very easy for you. All you have to do is the following:

  • Connect the jump cables to the portable charger.
  • Now connect the positive jump wire to the positive terminal of the car battery.
  • Now connect the negative jump wire to the negative terminal of the car battery.
  • Check to make sure the wires are firm.
  • Turn on the jump starter charger.
  • Try the ignition of the car and keep it started for 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn off the jump starter charger.
  • Disconnect and pack the kit and make sure you charge it for the next time.

See it is so simple and convenient that it solves all your ignition problems at least pertaining to the battery.


What to look for in a good jump starter?

You need to be sure that whenever you would need it and wherever you would need it, your battery jump starter kit will help you out in the tough time. If it is not durable or functional then there is no point of keeping it in my opinion.

So what makes it good, efficient and durable are the following qualities:

1. Reliability

You need to be sure that you can rely on your jump starter, that it will always bail you out of a tough situation. So a good portable jump starter should also have a charger. Every jump starter has a battery with enough ability to start your car but the one with a built-in charger is more dependable as it can be used anytime.


Reliability is especially an issue with the portable jump starters because they are more prone to extreme weather.

2. Power

Another important feature that a good jump starter should have is the power. You would ask, if it does have the power to start the car, why do we need more power? Well, you are right for some situations but for others, you will need more power. In situations where your battery is completely drained, a regular powered starter won’t help you out. You would need a powerful jump starter to revive that dead battery of yours.

3. Safe and easy to use

Well safety comes first in everything, so it should be safe. The wires should be properly insulated and the cover should be intact and it should have complete instructions with it so if you forget something you can consult it.


It should be easy to use so anyone can use it, even people like me who have no knowledge about engines or cars or electronics.

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.


Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.


5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.


They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.


10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
