Milwaukee M18 Lithium Car Jump Starter   Jumpstarting With A Milwaukee Battery


Lithium Powered Jump Starters & Boost Boxes can be extremely useful. They work so so much better than the Lead Acid based, a lot due to the lack of voltage drop while cranking, and the higher initial voltage of the lithium jump starters.

One unfortunate issue with the Lithium Jump Starters, also happens to be the battery. The LiPo Pouch cell batteries, over time, will "Balloon", meaning the actual pouch will "inflate" like a Mylar balloon. Some gassing and expansion is to be expected, and is part of the normal process of charging and discharging lithium cells. This gas is usually fairly minute, and absorbed back during the normal process of Charging & Discharging. Once it gets to the point where it is no longer being absorbed back in, that means the cells are at the end of life, and now reaching a phase where they are becoming unstable.

I decided to make a much more reliable, less likely to "blow" version of a jump starter, using my Milwaukee M18 Lithium Batteries. The majority of the M18 batteries use cylindrical cells such as the 18650 form factor for example, and are built to a much higher quality standard than the cheap jump starter packs that you see for sale. Further, the higher voltage of the M18 packs, will provide a "stronger" crank, especially when dealing with a dead lead acid starting battery.

I’ve already used the jump starter made in this video to start my flat dead Lawn Tractor (Not huge power requirements, I know) and my dads 1938 Cadillac Series 60, so he could get it in his garage.
