Anyone with a minimal foundation in electronics would know that this won't start a car with a stone-dead battery unless it's a very small engine. The internal SLA battery has 8A/H capacity, as I expected.
I have a 35A/H SLA battery [UB12350] I use for powering mobile and portable communications equipment. That will jump a dead car battery.
I had a riding lawnmower that was draining batteries and constandly needed to be jumped off of my truck battery, which was incredibly cumbersome. Carrying this starter out to the lawnmower, jumping it, and then mowing the lawn was 100 times easier than backing out my truck, popping the hood, untangling the cables, pulling the mower out in front of the truck, and then jump-starting it. I've since repaired the lawnmower, but am keeping this handy little charger around for my wife's car, just in case she needs it. It barely takews up any room at all, and it holds quite a charge. I've jump-started my riding lawnmower twice and the battery indicator didn't even drop (I would imagine a car would take a much higher charge and therefore drain the battery more), but it still shows how much this charger is capable of holding.
If you're looking for a portable jump-starter, this is the one for you.
Bought these a while ago and have been faithfully keeping them charged (about every 2 months) for our two cars. The first time I needed them was today.
One is a complete lemon, the light shows full charge, but even after connecting to a dead battery and turning on, it doesn't actually discharge and push the power into the battery. After leaving connected for 5 minutes, the unit still shows full charge (yes, I know how to connect a set of jumper cables).
I threw it to the side an grabbed the one inside our minivan. That showed full charge, I connected, turned on, waited 30 seconds and checked the charge again. Yippee, it showed low on the charge meter. Went inside the Golf and tried cranking... not enough juice to turn the crank. Had to go rooting in my garage for the jumper cables I thought I'd never need again.
I guess one is my fault for not buying a more powerful jump starter, but the other is a flat out lemon. Regardless, neither helped me when it came time for them to perform their single purpose design.
I suggest spending the extra money and purchasing from a reputable company.
A lawn garden tractor, 4-wheeler, small 2.0L Honda/Toyota car engine, yes, it will start them in a heartbeat. I like the small portability, ease of attachment of the strong clips and charging features which includes a cig-lighter adapter for slow overnight recharging of the unit. In all I give it an 8 out of 10 rating, great for smaller engines but not for the big boys.
Had to call AAA twice and at the same time ordered this unit.
Sure enough, battery weak again, car would not start, a fully charged up Peak to the rescue, INSTANT success.
Drove the car on the highway for a while and it now seems OK.
With the Peak in the back, no longer a need to worry about getting stuck or calling AAA.
Its best features:
recharges in home via AC or in car via DC, all cables included.
Two things to pay attention to:
When charging (and this is true of any such unit) make SURE ground is NOT touching painted surface, it MUST make contact with raw metal.
If ground is touching a painted surface, the units contact indicator can give a false reading of contact.
Use the battery terminal ground at your own risk, if you do so for whatever reason, be sure there is NO fluid or fumes coming from battery.
The built-in indicator showing the units strength must be used when unit is ACTUALLY charging, otherwise false reading may occur.
The only thing this is missing is that it does not operate as a trickle charger.
