I tried to use mine to jump a neighbor's car at night. Darn thing wouldn't work so we resorted to old school jumper cables.
A different neighbor tird to use his a year or two later to give a jump. Same result.
Apparently the darn things go through a lengthy pre-jump checklist after they are connected. Attempting to energize them during this time period is guaranteed failure.
Practice during day light so you will know the routine when attempting to use it on a dark and stormy night.
