      Yes you actually can. It will be the equivalent of a trickle charge though. You cannot jump start a vehicle that way (too many amps will blow fuses on your or the other car) This type of charging cable is available at most auto parts stores and is not that expensive.

      If you want to build one yourself then the answer is no, you do NOT reverse the wires. Pos to Pos and Neg to Neg
