You can jump the mower with the battery in your car or with a portable jump-starter, but you can only use your car battery if your mower has a 12-volt battery. If your portable jump-starter doesn’t have a plug, you can’t use it to jump a 6-volt battery. If you want to use a battery-powered jump start, make sure you have the right kind of jump starter.
