Amazon.com: Customer reviews: TACKLIFE T8 MAX Jump Starter - 1000A Peak 20000mAh, 12V Car Jumper (All Gas, up to 6.5L Diesel Engine), Auto Battery Booster, Portable Power Pack with Smart Jumper Cables, Storage Case, UL Certified
I let the battery completely drain on purpose by leaving the headlights on to test out this battery charger. I have a full size Chevy Silverado with a V8 and this jump starter started the truck right away. Very impressed with this device. No longer would you have to wait for someone to come by with jumper cables or another vehicle.
Edit 6/2/19: still no response from support. 1st support requested video of problem, sent, then cryptic message that they saw 1-star review and no further response, except emails completely in Chinese which google translated as automated response. BEWARE ALL THE FAKE REVIEWS, I'll post photos of cheap interior parts; Tacklife = junk.
Original Review: Got one use only. Needed to use built in lights. Once battery ran dead it could not be recharged, single blinking red/blue light never changes and will not recharge after numerous attempts. Charger output nominal per sticker. Absolutely worthless, look somewhere else. Edit: Been emailing support for 3+ weeks, so far, just generic responses, no action.
I got one of these Tachlife as a gift a few years ago. It is awesone! It jump starts my F250 diesiel truck batteries wothout a problem! I liked it so much I bought one for each of our adult kids for Christmas and for our other car.
The cables were an updated model from our original model, but I thought they would be easier to use since the boost button was an actual button now. The original model had a recessed button you had to stick a very thin rod into. (I literally used my earring post before.)
After opening them for Christmas, they were charged and placed into the trunk. Recently, I got the newest one out of the trunk to charge the mower battery. I tried, and tried, but could not get the boost button to actually charge the mower battery. Feeling frustrated, I waited for my husband to get home to see whatI was doing wrong. He tried and tried to also get it to charge the battery without success. He then pulled the old model outfrom his car swapped cables and then pushed the boost button. The mower started right up!! As much as I like the ease of an actual button for the boost feature it does no good if it does not work.
My husband and I really, teally like the original model and would give this model ALL 5 STARS IF the cable worked.
I was visiting the 🇺🇸 so decided to buy this as a gift for someone in 🇹🇹 after a week I finally give the person it .when we open it everything look good but the unit will not charge.we plug it to charge for more than 18hrs and only 1 blue light flashing from the first minute we plug it to the 18 HR .now imagine my pain to try to return this from Trinidad 🇹🇹.i have been trying to contact tacklife (pure pain).I will just have to consider my money lost.
