Jump Start stuff.. ((It appears, that you can Jump from it!))
I have two cars, this new Camry Hybrid and an older BMW. I did some work on the BMW. The battery went very low while it sat. I put a battery charger on it. it still was not charged after along while. I thought for a moment, and said hey, I wonder if I can jump the BMW (conventional, non-hybrid, from the Camry Hybrid.)
I changed the following statement: as it appears I was wrong about jumping car with jumper cable and batteries, involving the Hybrid.
Yes..., you can jump from the Hybrid to another car. I did read you can jump to the Hybrid from another car.
I do not want to nor will I try jumping to or from the Hybrid at all. I only had a moments thought, that I want a quick jump. Then I said, hell no, I am not going to mess with my new virgin Camry Hybrid and chance any damage at all!
So, before anyone does it, to or from, take note. I did read you can jump to it. But I never looked to see where the positive and negative posts are, if any. And, if anything goes wrong, it could be a very costly mistake.
Just an FYI
I did get my BMW started after my battery charger was left on a couple hours longer. The discharge was my fault, as the car sat along time while repairs were being done. Also, I did not disconnect the battery while the work was in progress. The battery charger is new, but not the fastest. My other battery charger was from Harbor Freight , and it blew up not long ago. The newest one is from Walmart. But, hopefully, my new 2014 Camry Hybrid will never need help.
