That battery would work but all you need to do is get a little juice back in
your battery and it will work. It's not complicated. A few seconds on just
about any source of low voltage low current DC will work. On one occasion I
did it with a 2 amp, 12 volt car battery charger. On another occasion I did
it with a car battery with a headlight lamp in series to limit the current.
You're not trying to significantly charge the battery that way. All you're
trying to do is get enough juice in it to let the jukebox boot.
