This might fail:
if your battery is "dead", it has low voltage. Now you "jumpstart" with a 
second battery, and FR boots. But same time the dead bat's internal 
protection might trigger for too high charging current from much higher 
voltage from parallel battery. This protection circuit needs to reset, what 
might not happen until you stop to try to charge it, and in fact discharge it 
a short while. 
So it's better practice to start the FR just from the good battery, and insert 
the dead one after boot has completed and jumpstart bat has been removed.
