Engine Click Click Click when trying to start

My engine clicks when I am trying to start it, but wont turn over. I have one of those portable battery/jumper units that has worked in the past but is not working now. Help?

Battery may be in too bad of shape to charge/start. Check all connections first to be sure they are clean and tight. Still won't work, take battery to auto parts store and have them check it.
