portable jumpstarter ?
I'm looking at getting portable jump starter to carry in my pickup,it will be available when the winter comes again.
i was just looking some Jump Starte on amazon,i find YUNSHANGAUTO Dual Mode Micro Car Starter 600A Peak Portable Car Jump Starter 12000mAh Power Bank(Up to 6.5L Gas or 5.0L Diesel Engine) Emergency Auto Battery Pack Booster Charger with LED Light. price:$89.9
Has anyone ever used one of those portable jump starter :Start your car from cigarette lighter socket inside the car and Jump start your car outside.

I'm wondering What is the most important factor to choose one Jump Starter,Whether it is worth buying at this price.

The original post has a few advertising foibles but I have a similar jump pack and it starts a Lexus V6 easily with the jumper leads. The cigarette lead part is pure crapola. I bought mine for about $50 off eBay.

I always figured if I was going to spend that much I'd rather simply get a good battery.

The wires at the starter are beefier than the wires at the cigarette lighter for a reason. This isn't just spam, it's dangerous.

That thing is junk.
For $90 I can buy a real jump starter pack that actually works.

I built a supercapacitor jump pack with 400 farad caps. As long as you can get them up to 10v, you can jump most vehicles. A weak battery in parallel with the supercaps will start. I've jumped a neighbors car using it.

The real purpose was to experiment with the technology, since it isn't cheap at about $65.

Yeah I have used them.
They take too long.
