Jump starters

For those unexpected moments when your vehicle won't start, having a reliable jump starter on hand can mean the difference between a quick, convenient power-up and waiting for roadside assistance. Jump starters are portable devices that can be used to initiate the starting procedure of a car, motorcycle, or boat that has a depleted battery. Customers who frequently travel, enjoy road trips, or own a vehicle that's not in constant use often turn to jump starters for emergency energy replenishment. These devices are also used by professional mechanics and in garages for quick and efficient service.

There are two main subtypes in the jump starter category: the jump start booster and jumper cables. The jump start booster is a self-contained, rechargeable battery-operated unit that provides a powerful charge to your vehicle's battery, often featuring additional functionalities like built-in lights, USB ports for charging mobile devices, and air compressors. Meanwhile, jumper cables are the traditional tool used to connect a dead battery to a live one, but require a second vehicle to provide the necessary power.

When selecting a jump starter, the most vital property to consider is the power supply. The typical jump starter is rechargeable battery operated, which means it's essential to focus on battery performance—like amp hours, peak amps, and charging cycles. Customers should also pay attention to portability, ease of use, and the additional features that enhance the jump starter's overall utility.
