Excellent Product! Best Jump Pack Ever Purchased!
February 26, 2017
I am a garage foreman for a large electrical utility company, in charge of maintaining everything from trailers and forklifts to Ford F550's and Heavy Duty International Trucks. I have purchased and used MANY different jump starters over the years. After another popular brand failed me in less than 90 days, I looked for something new. I found the NOCO Boost GB150 and was very skeptical of the 4000 Amps advertised. I purchased two of these 3 months ago and have to say I was and still am extremely impressed. I have been able to jump start 13.0L Navistar diesel engines with ease, something I thought wasn't possible from a battery pack of this size. I use these almost everyday and multiple times in that day. I love being able to use a cigarette lighter 12V charger on my work truck to charge the battery. The digital voltage reading on the front of the battery is super helpful, to check for alternator/generator voltage.
A few things I have noticed to get the most out of it.
1. After use, plug it into your 12V cigarette light to charge it. This way it's always ready for the next time and it's the most efficient way to recharge the battery.
2. When jump starting large diesel trucks, don't use the jump starting posts unless you have to. Clamping directly to the battery posts will give you the best results. There have been times when I have used the jump starting posts only and the engine would crank over slowly. When I clamped on straight to the batteries the motor started right up!
