  1. My starter shows low capability when I push the red button.this after I’ve recharged it. Does that mean I need a new internal battery? I’ve had it several years, used it only once, recharge regularly by your email schedule.

    1. Herman – Thanks for your question. Your internal battery could be compromised. I would suggest you speak to our Tech team at 800 328 2921, option 2. They will be able to help diagnose the issue. Thanks, Jim from Clore Automotive

  2. Is it detrimental to my Clore jump starter to power 2 12V. light bulbs? I have a cabin in the country with no electric and I use a car battery to run 2 light bulbs for approximately 30 to 60 minute intervals. I was wondering if I could use my Clore jump starter in place of the 12V. car battery.

    1. John – Thanks for your question. It should be fine to power your lighting using your jump starter. 2 caveats: 1.) don’t let the jump starter get extremely discharged (< 11.0V) and 2.) after use, charge as quickly thereafter as possible. Thanks again, Jim from Clore Automotive

  3. Thanks for the charging reminder and the tips. Hurricane season is a month away.

    1. Michael – We are glad you find the reminders helpful. We hope that hurricane season is uneventful. Jim at Clore Automotive

  4. We received an email reminder to recharge our battery fir spring. I plugged my charger to recharge but the battery indicated it is fully charged. Should I still recharge it even when it indicates FULL ?
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    1. Janis – Thanks for your question. Yes, we would suggest plugging the unit in overnight. If the unit shows full, it ikely will need/get very little charge, but it is still a good practice to do this every 90 days. Thanks, Jim from Clore Automotive
