Jumping a car battery is not hard once you learn how to do it. The main concern is not just knowing which cable goes to which battery post, but also how to do it safely. Keep in mind when using jumper cables that there is a dangerous amount of electrical power running through them. But when taking the right precautions, using jumper cables is perfectly safe, so be prepared and handle the cables carefully.
During cold temperature conditions, the dead battery may take a bit longer to charge up. If it doesn’t start on the first attempt, don’t worry. You just need to charge it longer. If you have good cables, eventually it should start right up. Let it run for a while after it does to give the battery a chance to refill via the alternator.
Remember, always be mindful of the clamps and never touch them together. Keep pets and children well away from the battery terminals. Be sure to follow every step in the infographic properly. If you do, your jumpstart will be quick and easy.

This infographic does an effective job of using visual communication to explain how to jump a car battery. Given that a reader could likely understand around 75% of this piece without having to read the text, the visuals are largely effective. The copy is well done, too—short, clear, and supportive of the illustrations. The design, unfortunately, feels somewhat amateurish, lowering the overall quality. In the end, though, this is useful and usable infographic. We'd give it a B.
