Love this thing, finally got to use it!
on July 13, 2016
I was pretty worried about ordering this because a handful of people claimed they got a fake. After comparing mine VERY closely to the images on the manufacturer website, I'm fairly confident it is the real thing. As some people have mentioned, the fake is shiny and the real thing has a nice matte rubberized feel to it.
I have not yet used mine to jump start a car...which is kinda the point. But I did take it on vacation with me for a few days and it came in fairly handy in the hotel room. My hotel room only had 2 wall outlets, neither of them were near the bed and I brought my laptop with me which has no battery because it died. I was able to use this personal power supply to run my laptop for a couple hours (only using 40% of the battery, and my laptop is an older gaming laptop, so it sucks up a bit of juice, so that was pretty good), and also charge my cell phone at night bedside.
I'll update this review if/when I ever need to use it to jump start a vehicle.
I've also been taking it in my backpack with me when I commute on my motorcycle to work. I haven't ridden my bike in a while and it was having some battery charging issues before and I would have to run and clutch start the bike, now I can just use this if that ever happens again.
UPDATE!! I LOVE THIS THING!
So I started commuting to work on my motorcycle. My bike has always had electrical issues in the past and it's sat for long periods of time, so the battery is not in the best shape. Usually I have to run my bike down the street and jump on it to kickstart the bike. Well I don't have to do that anymore!!!! I used this to start my bike that was dead and it started right up first try. I keep it in my backpack for now. Then a couple days later, it died at a gas station (I left the headlights on for about a minute after getting gas) and again it started right up.
