This Is Not A Battery Charger
It will, however, melt your battery or your starter into a heap of glowing slag. Assuming you have the 480 Volts at 12 Amperes to feed it, anyway. Which you probably don't.
Word to the wise: this one had aluminum lugs on it. That might not be the best of ideas. Eventually, they start to get, well, melty. This would be bad anywhere but it's worse when they're a fifth of a mile away. A fifth of a mile, straight up.

Ego vadum perussi vestri prandium
"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
Henry David Thoreau
