Just to update this review now. I have had this for about 5 years now and it still works great. I leave it in the trunk of my car and only have to recharge it about once every 8 months or so, so it will hold a charge a long time if you just use it when needed and not as a toy. I am planning to get another one when my son starts to drive to keep in his car as well and will positively replace my old one with a new one when it wears out. Well worth the money you spend on it.
The built-in air compressor is a great convenience for camping, as we are always adjusting tire pressure as we travel. It's quite loud at this task however. It blows up bicycle tires in seconds.
The unit has saved me great inconvenience when we've run the car battery down by leaving on interior lights all night. The unit starts my van almost instantly. We've confidently helped others who needed jumps because the process is quick and easy and doesn't require any cabling to another car.
We've gone coast to coast--desert to mountain top--for three summers so far and I pat myself on the back for buying it every time I use it.
After returning from a recent trip abroad, leaving it in the car for a little less than a month, the battery finally gave up the ghost. Even after charging it for ~48 hours, and indicating full charge, it no longer has enough juice to run the compressor.
Which, besides emergency power, was my main use: to top off the air pressure in my tires to keep them properly inflated without spending much time at a gas station.
Checking on replacements, it's not really user-replaceable, B&D doesn't list the price, which implies it's expensive (as others already pointed out) and they want to send you to a service center, none of which is nearby. Which probably means it's easier for me to just get a new one (not necessarily the B&D though)
The first, top-rated review summarizes things well, I concur: It is useful for what it is within its limitations, but it won't last forever, esp. if you don't recharge it on a regular basis... Whether it's worth the money is your decision.
I received this product as a Christmas present but the compressor nozzle was defective and would not work. When I tried to return it for a replacement product, Amazon would NOT accept it per their policy of shipping batteries which are considered hazardous materials when returned. I had to jump through many hoops, speak to numerous customer service reps and received conflicting messages. Buyer beware, this is a great product and performs as advertised but you CANNOT return it to Amazon!
OK, had to warn you first- now the good part! This B&D product has full features that can power your laptops, smartphones and other small devices. I use it to power my fish electric filet knife and it does so without a struggle. It has both AC and DC outlets as well as jumper cables for dead car batteries in a bind. It does have a nice air compressor when needed for mattresses and tires. Built in LED light and safety switches make this producg a gem. You'll like the car charger outlets and sturdy construction.
Highly recommended over the other imitators- my dad has had his for years and it's lasted this long for him! Like I said, the air compressor nozzle was defective and made of a cheaper plastic, not metal. Other than that, the product is well made.
