jNOTE: Be sure to charge this for 5 hours minimum in a WALL OUTLET when you take it out the box the first time. The device will say 100% charge (which is incorrect) left but it still needs to be charged for up to 5 hours the first time before you can use it to jump start a car. I was very skeptical about these devices. Claims of reanimating a dead 3 ton vehicle with a module slightly bigger than my cell phone sounded like pure science fiction to me. Last night I managed to restart my dead and cold BMW sedan which was parked for a month in sub zero (as in -1 F to -10 F) temperatures. My car was also buried in a few feet of snow a mistake of winter parking outside for a month while I was vacationing in the sunny and warm beaches of Antigua.
PROS: Works! I’ve heard more stories about these kits NOT working than working so the fact that this particular kit works after getting fully charged means it is a big positive. Easy To Use: The plugs and jump clamps can be an intimidating concept to grasp but with this kit it is easy to hook up to your car’s positive and negative terminals and get in the car, wait a minute or two and then attempt to start the car. After a few attempts my car started fine. I have a YouTube video showing my kit working to start my car on my 0LAF2046 channel. Good Quality Materials. Appears to be using top quality wiring and plastics Lots of extras in the kit for charging your Android Phone and chargers for charging this device in a wall outlet or your car.
CONS: Price on this is little is higher than other kits but it is a quality made kit and comes with a handy storage pouch. LED read out incorrectly tells you the device has a 100% charge when you first get it in the mail and take it out of the box. My read out said 100% but the minute I started playing with the flash light and cellphone charging ports my read out dropped from 100% to 49%. Once you charge in a wall outlet it for the first 5 hours BEFORE USING IT TO JUMP START YOUR CAR it will recalibrate to the correct reading.
I didn't expect much of this jump starter at first. After opening the box my opinion changed. The jump starter has its own protective case which makes it easy to store in your vehicle. The charge is retained pretty nice. It includes two USB ports and a flashlight. Cables are included with the item, which is a plus. The jump starter works fast with small card. Haven't tried it on big batteries yet.
Used the SUAOKI P6 800A Peak Car Jump Starter jump starter for the first time last weekend when I was camping and I let me cooler drain my battery. Very easy to hook up and use. Started my Jeep right away and still read a charge of 100% . Great charging bank for my phone! Highly recommend it!
My car wound up with a dead battery in my parking garage since I hadn't driven it in a long while. The engine was unable to crank, and I was just getting a loud sequence of starter clicks on key turn. The car is over 7 years old now and is obviously ready for a battery replacement.
I did same-day-delivery on this jump starter and was pleasantly surprised with how well it worked. It came fully charged, reading 100% on first power-on. I started my car on first key turn. The engine is a gas 5.0L, and the car's stock battery is rated at 590 CCA (cold cranking amps).
I got this particular unit over a Duracell unit after reading a disappointed reviewer mentioning that the Duracell doesn't jump start a completely dead battery based on its internal safety mechanism. The Suaoki unit does have a "force start" mode, and I felt better having it just in case my battery was dead enough to give me problems.
The case it comes with is nice and tough and holds its contents tightly so that things don't shake around. Unfortunately, it's too big to throw under my car seat or in my glove box, but I'm going to fasten it somewhere in my trunk to keep it with me and out of the way.
This has been a great accessory to have in my car. The day I got it my battery decided to cramp out and i have to jump it everytime to start my Jeep and it did within seconds. I jumped my Jeep probibly 5 times and it had plenty of charge left for 5 jumps. I'm super impressed with all the jumps I got out of it and how small and easy it is to put away.
Arrived with a 70% charge. Charged it to 100% and it provided a single start to a VW Passat 3.6L engine. The LED read 0% after the start. Got the car going to get to a shop to replace the 12 year old battery that died all at once. I'd recommend it for engines that are running well and just have a dead battery. I wouldn't rely on it for multiple starts without recharging if the engine is hard to start..
Product arrived quickly, and I needed to use it a couple of days later on a subfreezing night. I had charged it to 97% the day it arrived, and it was still at 97% when I tried it out. It was easy to use, and it started my 1998 Toyota Corolla LE instantly. After finishing, it still had a 97% charge. It's everything I expected, and more. It's also small and lightweight, easy to carry and use. And all the accessories (AC charger, cables etc.) fit nicely in the rugged carrying case.
I have just started using this so cannot comment on its ability to start a dead battery. I charged it after getting it and it now reads 100%. I just used it to recharge my iphone which was about 50% down. It charged my phone but the suaoki then read 74% after just charging a cell phone. Am recharging this again to see if I keep getting the same experience. I was hoping it would be able to charge numerous mobile devices before running down so fast. I shall update this review as I get more experience with the product. It is nicely packaged and is the perfect size to carry around in a car or on a trip.
This thing is awesome.. the Optima Red Top battery in my 05 6.0L GTO was beyond dead.. I connected up the Suaoki P6 right out of the newly arrived box (yes it came charged) to my GTO and she fired back to life.. If you are in need for a device to jump off a dead battery.. This thing will do it! Make sure you size the unit you need for the largest application you have. In my case it was my 6.0L engine.. I can now jump off anything I own with this one little unit..
