1. A self-contained automotive battery booster system for delivering electrical current to a depleted automotive battery, the booster system comprising:
a) an integral power source, the integral power source configured to deliver the electrical current at one of two predetermined voltages, the system further comprising an electric switch configured to switch between the two predetermined voltages;
b) a connector configured to connect the integral power source to the depleted automotive battery;
c) a first circuit configured to control the flow of electricity from the integral power source to the depleted automotive battery;
d) a second circuit configured to provide an alert to a user, the second circuit comprising an arming switch and a timer, the arming switch further configured to activate the timer to further activate the first circuit to connect the integral power source to the depleted automotive battery for a fixed period of time when the arming switch is armed, wherein the fixed period of time is set by the timer; and
e) a status indicator configured to inform the user when the timer is activated, wherein the status indicator facilitates activation of the first circuit to control the flow of electricity from the integral power source to the depleted automotive battery such that a surge of electrical current is delivered from the integral power source to the depleted automotive battery.
