    Can you charge the car battery using 220 AC?

    the meter: 0.7v

    That little battery should been enough to jump the car on time though

    All I have to say is what is the wire gauge ampacity rating for your little aligator jumper wires. Pretty small I would bet.

    Electroboom you can also push the car as well and then try and start it from another person inside that will always start the car. Thatโ€™s what my dad used to do. it works on manual cars, so if you have a manual car, then your good if you have an automatic, then you have to replace the battery or do your thingy

    You can also swap out your car lights with LEDs to help reduce power consumption in the event you forget to turn them off.

    why couldn't have you just used your 30v power supply at 14.7v and a big extension cord to charge it. Instead of this sketchy af method.

    UPDATE: After the battery running for a few more days with no problem, it left us abandoned at a gas station! Fortunately someone gave me a boost.
    So to diagnose the problem, while the car was running I measured the voltage and it was 13.5V, but as soon as I turned the car off, it dropped to 9V. So the alternator was providing juice to charge the battery, but the battery didn't hold it.
    I also put an ammeter and measured car's off current. When I locked the car, the current was at 110mA and after one minute dropped to 3.5mA. So there is no leakage current either.
    I brought the battery home and charged it with my supply. The voltage would rise to 14.5V with a steady 2A, and then would drop to 11V when I disconnect it.
    In conclusion, I am sad to announce that the battery has passed away. It is not a serviceable battery either, so I shall take it to the dumpster where it belongs! (I mean I will recycle it)
