    I purchased this for a Chevy Silverado. It was the only jumper available at my local store. I was heading out of town and had no time for an online order, so I went with it. I was a bit worried it wouldn't work, I'm used to those big clunky ones, but I'm very surprised at just how well it does work. It's very easy to use and jumped the truck immediately, no problems at all. I've also used the flashlight and charged cell phones when we lost power due to a hurricane recently. I've not used more than 25% of the charge yet. I like the storage case and how compact it is, takes up very little space and charges fast. This has been one of the best purchases I've made and I highly recommend it to keep in your vehicle or just in your house for emergencies.

    Another Scosche Product

    Been looking at these small portable jump starter's for some time now and I finally pulled the trigger on another Scosche product. Talk about light weight compared to battery boosters of years past. Not to mention it can go in your glove box or carry on baggage when you travel. Use it on the beach for our Kindle's and my battery loving Samsung Galaxy S9+. Holds a charge really good so far. Haven't had to use it yet for jump starting anything but I am sure it will be just fine. I truly wish the cables could have been long because I can see this being a problem. Has anyone seen any longer cables out there yet that work ? Six to 12 inches longer would be awesome.

    Might work for some circumstances, not all

    On a really really cold day for my area (9 degrees) this device would not jump start my car. It indicated the battery was not in a condition suitable to jump. I checked the water levels in each cell and found them a bit low. After adding water, it still would not start. The circuit that checks battery condition still indicated it was not okay to jump. I hooked up a pair of regular cable to another car battery and jump started it. Granted it took a few cranks but this device fails when the regular old-fashioned method works. All claims of this out performing normal means seem to be b.s. It would probably work in warm conditions but don't count on it when it's cold.

    Haven't really had a chance to use it yet. Bought it as a back-up in case I am in the middle of no where and kill my battery. Seems to be a very high quality one, but I would think it could fit in a box HALF the size. It wasn't a struggle to get into into the package, and I really think for something that is meant to be in the car all the time stored away, it would be a little more compact. That is my only gripe. Other than that, great unit.

    Great even for jumping a diesel truck

    I looked at several different brands but most were for 6 cylinders or less. I finally found this and thought I'd try it. I was skeptical, thinking I'd only be able to use it for USB powered gadgets, but I had the opportunity at work to try it out and it came through. Out on the rig, a coworker with a diesel powered GMC had both batteries dead, and we were actually able to start his truck by jumping it with this little box!! I'm impressed!

    This fits in the console between my two front seats. It’s compact size can fool you!!! After a full charge, it can provide full jumpstarts for up to 5 vehicles!!! The only downside is that the flashlight stays on, unless you push power button three times. For some reason, the average person finds that difficult to do. Myself, I love the flashlight because I know how and when to have it lit!!!

    Love this! Now have one in each car. My brother was stranded and his phone battery died. He did not have adapter to charge his phone. When he went on the road again, I gave him my power bank. He did not return it (haha), so I bought another one. I was glad to give it to him. I was also able to help some jump their battery. Quick and easy to use. Great peace of mind to have.

    Poorly Made for the Price

    I didn't even get a chance to see if this would successfully jump my battery. I put black on black and went to put red on red, when the spring popped out of the clamp and somewhere down in between plastic and metal. I could do not locate it. It had to have melted because there was a smell coming into my car for about a day. For the price, this should be made so much better. What a waste.

    Used this on my 06" Evolution with a small racing battery that was left outside all winter never starting it (bad choice by me). Not surprisingly it was a dead. Bought this product in hopes of recovery, got it all hooked and BLAM, started right up as if it was the last time i drove it. WIll always have this in all my cars.

    Haven't had the need to jump start a car yet but I was amazed at how small the unit is and glad to see all the extra features. You can use it to charge your cell phone or tablet or laptop, as a warning flasher, a flash light, and jump start the car. It's a very useful and handy gadget, a must have safety item for anyone!

    I was in a hurry to get one of these units one day , bought the first one I found. It was fairly inexpensive, tried it, barely worked, returned it. Got this one, it works great, started My V-8 without any hesitation !

    This is a very power portable charger that is easy to use. It can charge the battery of most vehicles in addition to portable electronic devices. The handy carry case comes with everything needed for portability and quick storage.

    This jumpstarter is perfect for the car. Good size, plenty of power, even in 0 degree weather. Jumped my car 5 times and barely used 25,% of the battery. Would be 5stars but the cables should be a tad bit longer.

    Nice unit seems well made. For those unaware these Lithium packs store a charge well but output performance drops quickly when cold. Not a dig on the pack just and FYI.

    Such a small product packs a big punch. I went to Best Buy on a whim the salesman said I would be very happy with this product and he was right. Out of the park home run.

    Best product for the price. I have it for almost one year and it still works great. It has great capacity and it lasts at least 6-7 jump starts before you need to charge it again.

    Don’t let the size fool you. This portable car starter is special. It looks frail on the outside but it is so powerful on the inside. Simply astronomical!!!!!!
