    Can anyone tell me what this red switch is supposed to do?

    Can't figure out what the red ON / OFF switch on my car battery charger is supposed to do. I have tried everything but it all works regardless of the position of the switch. Any ideas?

    What make and model is it?

    could be a battery boost function
    ie if the battery is not dead it gives a burst of power allowing you to start the car quickly rather than waiting for it to charge
    it might not be that but our truck charger has the same function

    when you say it is a booster, are you confirming that the switch is … when you say it is a booster, are you confirming that the switch is infact the boost charge function or just that the charger is a booster?



    Yep, the charger is a booster / jumpstart - similar to this one

    I have that booster/jump starter or a very similar one and the switch is for use when jump starting (not boosting)
