Having a dead car battery is one of the worst feelings in the world, especially if you are in a remote location cutting firewood without any cell phone service. Well what if you could charge your car battery with a chainsaw? Impossible you say? Well not according to popular youtuber wranglestar as seen in the video above.

By simply removing the bar, chain and drive sprocket you use the power of the chain saw to rotate your alternator to charge the battery and give you just enough juice to start the vehicle.

It is important to already know the direction of charge for your alternator ahead of time. If you do not have a spare fan belt in your tool box to use a pair of shoelaces, rope or even a pair of pantyhose work great in a pinch.

Pantyhose? Yes, pantyhose. Hopefully they are your wife's and not yours. 🙂

In all seriousness though if you have a get home bag in your vehicle pantyhose should be a part of it. It works great for body heat retention in cold environments and has a million of other uses.

Now don't forget to turn your lights off when you park your truck so you need to charge your battery with a chainsaw.
