Great quality, solid product, sturdy and easy to use..
EA
It has a useful display, indicating volts and charge capacity, lets you jump a car many times before recharging, and will work for literally months between charges.

A serious heavy duty jump starter that will do the job many times over and last a long time.

This booster has no air compressor or light or any other fancy thing such as a radio. What is does have is power and it does what its made to do- jump your car. It charges quickly and uses a a standard extension cord plug so your booster doesn't go to waste when you lose the ac adapter. It also stops charging automatically.
The first day I used it I jumped a Mercedes SUV 3 times and the battery indicator still indicated above 75%. And it had no trouble boosting the large V6 engine. In fact it still has 75% power after using it to jump 5 other cars.
Its lightweight and thin and seems well built. I'm glad I bought this booster and the price was right given the cold cranking amps.

Best in class--had a couple cars with shorts that needed lots of jumps and went through three other brands. Every one under $100 could not last or keep a charge long enough to work on demand.

The 2212 instantly started a dead battery on cold mornings. The 3 amp charger is much faster than cheapo models.

Basically it is a durable solid unit. You'll need to spend over $200 for a better jump starter. The long cables let me solidly place it while jumping, unlike the other boxes that barely reached.

Buy it & you will love the security of genuinely professional grade peace of mind.

Ill give you the good news first. This item will spin my 4.3 liter high-compression V8 like there's no tomorrow, and it will do it at least 5 times on one charge. It will hold a fresh charge for three months. It has a huge red digital readout that serves several purposes. It will let you know when you have a good connection to a car battery before you switch it on. It will let you know how much voltage it is providing, and it will tell you the charge state of its internal battery when it is in charge mode. There is also a warning if you cross up your leads. There is a cigarette lighter socket for 12V access.

Now for the bad news. First, you have to provide an extension cord, and, when you do, there's no place to store one of any length on the device. My advice is to buy the shortest single-socket 16AWG cord you can, and squeeze it onto one of the side hooks where the leads are stored. Otherwise expect to just leave the cord behind (probably the manufacturer's intent) or carry it separately. Second, while you can leave the charger plugged in full time without overcharging, there is a noisy fan that runs full time (and draws about 6 watts along with the display). Even if you charge it in your garage, you probably won't want to just plug it in and forget it for two years, because that fan will wear out sooner or later. At least it sounds like it will. (I wish they'd used a quieter fan of the type that comes on desktop computers.) Don't plan to store it in an unheated area in winter, because performance will suffer severely, although a sealed garage is probably warm enough in most climates. Finally, you can't use this thing as a charger to maintain a car's battery in the garage. It's not designed for that and won't allow it.

If you buy this product, watch out for one very strange quirk: No matter how fully charged the battery is, the digital readout will ALWAYS say it is 10% charged when you plug it into a charger. The readout will slowly creep up towards 100% over a few hours. But this readout is false: It has no connection to the actual charge on the battery. To determine the actual charge on the battery, press the "%" button on the unit and it will tell you the actual percentage the item is charged.

The Schumacher customer service department doesn't know that this is how the product works, and they will tell you that the unit is broken if you ask about it. You'll then have to pay $35 to ship the unit back to them to get a new one (it's very heavy), and it will take several weeks, and the new one will seem broken, too. But it's not: It's just a strange quirk of the way these machines are designed. Trust me: This happened to me twice before I figured it out on my own.

UPDATE: I have changed my rating of this item from three stars to one star because after having the unit replaced twice for the reason above, the third unit I received just totally stopped working within about two months of it being sent to me. This time, the unit was really dead: It takes no charge no matter how long it is plugged in, and gives zero read out. Ironically, I couldn't get a replacement unit because the new replacement was no longer under warrantee: The clock on the one-year warrantee started ticking when I received the first unit, and it was just about elapsed when I received the third one. So I ended up spending a year dealing with the service department to "fix" units that weren't broken, and then at the end I received a unit that stopped working after about 2 months. I guess it just wan't meant to be. I hope others are luckier with this product than I was!

I have owned 2 other jump starters over the years, but I've always had the problem of leaving them plugged only to have ruined them because of overcharging, so I have some experience using these kinds of units. I bought this unit almost a year ago and it has worked flawlessly! I charged it up when it arrived and didn't use it until maybe a month or so later when my Honda Odyssey's battery was dead (kids left the cabin lights on). It started the van right up no problems. Since then I have used it probably every couple months for myself or friends. One week we went camping with a few other families and the kids once again left the lights on in their respective vans. This thing started 3 vans right in a row without recharging. I say that is quality!

#UPDATE
This starter is still going strong over 3 years later, granted I only use it maybe 4-5 times per year, but it's always there and ready when I need it. I may charge it about 2 to 3 times a year.
