You can jump-start a car without another car by bridging two batteries using tools. In this fast method, a spare battery is linked together with a dead battery to boost the power of the dead battery to start the car.

If the tip of the lead-acid battery is turned upside down, the chance is that you can spill out the acid from the battery, which can cause chemical harm to your hand as well as damage the car parts.

In case, you do not have a maintenance-free and spill-free battery to flip upside down, you can use the normal lead-acid battery to bridge with a dead battery by using tools such as a spanner. The best way to jump-start a lead-acid battery is by putting it side by side with a dead battery, using tools to bridge the gap between a dead and boosted battery.
