Preferred Alternative to Jumper Cables
August 1, 2017
Purchased this unit about a year ago and it paid off this past week. While visiting Glacier National Park my in-laws rental car (a 2017 Ford Expedition) had issues starting all week. Rather than going through the hassle of moving my truck face-to-face with their car to use traditional jumper cables I simply popped the hood and jumped it. We got about 4 jumps off of one charge, but I still recommend charging every time you use it, or every 30 days as instructed in the manual. My father-in-law bought one when he got home from the trip.
Additionally I have used the compressor several times in a pinch on both my F-150 and Honda Civic. It is a great tool and I highly recommend this product.
One tip, the compressor switch must be completely off to charge the unit. I had an issue with this as I thought it stopped charging, but the the switch was just slightly moved from the "off" position. After discovering the issue the unit had no trouble charging back up.
