I purchased this Jump starter for a vehicle that I rarely drive, and it works as advertised. My only complaint is that it does not come with a power cord. You will need to supply your own quality power cord to charge this unit, not a big deal really. I charged it out of the box and have it used it twice to jump cold dead cars and it does the job. Quality parts and construction are obvious, the clamp cables are a tad short but it was just long enough to reach terminals. It is my understanding that these type of products need to be used, depleted of power, and then charged again several times a year or they will experience problems. I plan to use this jump starter often and now even carry it in my car for that unexpected need.

Had this product for 6 months use it once. Kept it charge as instructed. Went to use it and the battery was dead even tho I charged it but a week ago. Tried charging it and it no longer work. I logged on a black & Decker site and was shock to learned that 9 out of every 10 people who bough this product had similar problem. The product is junk. Those who posted that it was good certainly did not have this for more than a year or have not tries it for more than 3 times. Please research and you will realize that this is the worst product of its kind on the market. Black & Decker have so much problems with this product I am shock that it is still being manufacture.
Certainly will not recommend this to any one not even those I dislike.

Every now and then the car I tow behind my motorhome needs a jump to get started and this product eliminates calling a service truck. It's easy to carry and stow but I am totally perplexed about the lack of a power cord to charge the unit. I had to hunt around for the right extension cord with a fitting compatible with the jump starter. You'd think Black & Decker would deal with the extra $1 of product cost to include a cord to charge the unit!!

Seems like a great product. Makes jumping a dead battery easy--you don't need another car or jumper cables. Plus it has a USB port so you can charge your phone if your power is out in a storm.

I got one and it worked great. A relative had a car whose battery kept dying so I gave it to him and ordered a second one. It arrived DOA. It wouldn't charge. Because of the lead-acid battery you can't send it back to Amazon, so I called the company (Baccus Global) and they sent me the info to send it back to them. It is so heavy it cost $35 to ship it to them (the cheapest rate!). I haven't heard back from them yet (it has been a few weeks). So I'm out at least an extra $35, and lord only knows when or if I'll get a replacement unit back.

I'm rating it 3 stars because when it does work it is great. If it takes weeks to get a replacement, I'll certainly update my review downward!

Edit update: Note that a replacement arrived and it works fine.

I purchased this jump starter, read all the instructions, charged it for 24 hours per the instructions. Then, on a -25 day in Minnesota a few days later, my car battery died. The B&D jump starter showed that after all that time plugged in, it was barely charged. Needless to say, I couldn't use it and eventually used a neighbor's car to jump my own. I returned this jump starter yesterday.

Not only is it annoying to not have this thing work when I needed it to, in a place that gets such extreme cold it could also be dangerous to have a piece of equipment fail on you like this.

Shortly after I bought this unit, I successfully jumped a 4-cyl Honda Civic that still had enough power in its battery to barely turn over the engine. Been downhill from there. Tried jumping a 6-cyl Honda Accord with a completely dead battery. Fail. Tried jumping a 6-cyl Nissan Pathfinder with a completely dead battery. Fail. Bottom line: This unit simply doesn't have enough power to jump an automobile with a completely dead battery. Note the mfr doesn't disclose how many cranking amps the unit has (the 300 amp figure is undoubtedly the peak amps, and irrelevant). Avoid this. Shop for a unit with at least 300 CRANKING amperes if you want the ability to jump most autos.

The JUS500B is all it is advertised to be. The only drawbacks are that it is heavy for a portable emergency starter battery, it sits on the ground flat and will not store or stand upright at all (round bottom end) and it does not come with an electrical cord for charging. If not for these (non-operational) drawbacks, I would give it a five star review.

This unit uses a 12v 9AH battery, commonly sold as size 1290. Using such as small battery to jump a car is asking an awful lot of it. This is one size bigger than what is used to provide backup power to alarm systems, usually less than 1A. That being said, it will start even a small car is you leave it connected for a few minutes so it can transfer some of it's energy to the car's battery before attempting a start. If the cars battery is completely dead or bad, don't even bother. I use it to jump start motorcycles with weak batteries without any problem.

The internal battery can be replaced with an AGM unit that will hold it's charge much longer, 9-12 months typically. The replacement battery needs special larger terminals that are hard to find. Most 1290 batteries use 1/4" terminals that are much too small and won't work with the wiring used. You need a 1290 battery that has bolt style terminals, very hard to find. Search for the HR9-12B, made by BB battery. A web search will turn it up for under $40. Open the screws on the back and just swap out your dead battery.

My charger also stopped functioning after a year. It's just a cheap wall-wart type plug in power pack mounted into the housing so it's AC prongs stick out. At it's listed voltage, it will never charge the battery beyond 50% or so. I charge my unit through the jumper cables using a Battery Tender. The Jr. model 021-0123 available from Amazon for $23 works just fine and they all use the correct charging method to make sure the battery gets to 100%. Or you can charge it using your car while the engine is running. A good fully charged battery should read 12.8-13V an hour after being taken off the charger.
