Don’t let a flat battery end your journey before it’s even begun. Small and simple to use, a set of jump leads are an essential accessory for the boot or the garage.

To get them to work, you’ll need a friend with a car, a set of gloves and a set of jumper cables. Booster cables are colour coded, which makes them easy to use. The black lead is ‘negative’ and the red lead ‘positive’.
