Since I've not had the pleasure of experiencing a dead 12V battery yet I wanted to ask a question prior to my "first time". I carry one of those small jump-start packs that Costco and others sell in my car which will normally provide power for a ICE car to get started. Does this work for a BEV as well? What I don't understand is the difference between the ICE car — which once started begins recharging the battery via the alternator, and the BEV car — which does, or doesn't do the same thing? I'm not sure how that works. Doesn't the BEV recharge via the traction battery once the car is started? If so, why doesn't the car just use the traction battery to start when the 12V battery is dead? And if it technically does NOT do that, how does the BEV car continue running without the 12V battery being completely recharged? All a bit confusing to me. Thanks for any feedback.
