  7. Rechargeable Portable Jump Starters?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The portable jump starter instructions advise to connect the negative clamp to the battery's negative terminal. The supplied cable is too short to attach it to the engine mounting bolt as Honda instructs. Is there an alternative location for the negative clamp to be secured? There are too...
