Can Lithium battery act as car battery

Last Modified: 2015-03-31

Can the above jumpstart battery be used in the car ie replace the car's Lactic acid battery?

Is there any better batteries for car than the current conventional lactic acid batteries?
Reason I ask is when such huge lactic batteries fail, I'll need to call an SoS to come to
my rescue to replace or recharge my car's batteries.  If it's a simple battery like the one
shown in eBay above, I can replace it myself.

Suppose my car's lactic battery really break down (due to leaving the lights on when engine
is switched off), can this eBay jumpstart battery really recover/revive back the car's lactic
battery or allow the car to run some distance (say 20km?)
