Can you be injured while attempting to jump a car battery?
Millions of people every year experience the frustration of a dead battery. When this occurs, they may need to replace the battery or attempt to jump the car battery with another car.
While the process of jumping a car battery is typically not complex, it still poses a risk of injury. One of the most types of accidents is a battery explosion.
A battery may explode if hydrogen gas emitted from the battery reacts with a spark that occurs near the battery. Such a spark can occur when connecting jumper cables. For this reason, when individuals jump car batteries, they should exercise extra caution.
