I was thinking of buying an MSC Overland Waterproof Car Jumper & Power Bank for my rib.
Im thinking it could be a small, lightweight backup if the battery develops a problem. To get the outboard started. Its a suzuki 4 stroke 50hp.
I'm not at all auto-electrically minded, which doesn't help.
I have a few questions and would be very grateful for your thoughts and advice please.
1. Assuming it has the power to jump start the outboard, doesnt the outboard need a constant source of power to continue running?
2. Would i connect it to the battery terminals, like you would when you jump a car? And could I leave it connected whilst I return to port?
3. Do you have any experience or views on these types of jump starter please
Thank you in advance for your help and advice
