Not as often as I did, I still keep a small accessory type jumper that will slow charge a disabled drained battery, if it isn't completely shot, takes extra time involved. Takes usually about 10 minutes for an otherwise healthy voltage drained battery to recover(Depends) on what the failure causes are.

I do have jumper cables in my car. At one time I did know how to use them but it has been so long since I have used them I don't remember how. I'm afraid now I would blow up the car if I tried :-)
