    Like B. Diddy said, we're all about Android here, so other topics might elude us (personally, I suck at car stuff). But to the best of my knowledge, there are no car battery CHARGERS... there are car battery JUMP-STARTERS, which allow you to give it enough juice to start the car and get the alternator going. Most of the ones I've seen use rechargeable batteries, but there might be older ones that used D batteries. Again, these are only good for a one-charge only, then you recharge them for future use, but they only give a little boost to the battery. It's up to the alternator to fill in the rest.

    Well, since we're talking about cars, you want to get one of the older cars, so that in the event of a flat battery, you can crank-start it. On the Model T Ford, for example, you could switch to the magneto if the battery was flat; a single throw of the crank would start the engine. But they may have stopped making them.
