147. You'd have to try really hard to damage the converter.
The bigger problem is that with modern, computerized,
fuel-injected cars, if the battery is flat, there
may not be enough electricity left to run the electric
fuel pump, the computer, and the fuel injectors so
the car won't start anyway.

This wasn't so much of a problem in the old days when
cars had mechanical fuel pumps, carburetors, no computers,
and the only electricity you needed was the juice to fire
the spark plugs.
