Size: 1000 Peak Amp Power Station Verified Purchase
This item appears to be fairly well-made. It has a rather large footprint and weighs ~15 lbs. I like the layout of the controls and lighted psi gauge. The battery charge indicator has three LED's, so it's hard to gauge exactly how much charge is left. When I received this item, the plastic valve on the end of the air hose was broken off. Rather than send it back, I decided to fix it myself for two reasons. 1 - The plastic valve will eventually break off again (very cheap component). 2 - The 1/4" rubber air hose is VERY short (less than 18"), which will make the compressor more difficult to position and use. So, I went to the local hardware store and got a better air valve, an extension hose and 1/4" compressor hose repair kit for about 20 bucks. Now I can reach any tire without having to reposition the unit. The compressor does reach pressures over 100psi, so the 120 rating isn't too far off. Additionally, the jumper cables are VERY short - about 2'. I can imagine this causing a problem positioning the unit safely for a jump start. Even with these minor issues, I still think this a good value.

1st UPDATE: After using the compressor and inverter for 3+ months, I'm impressed with the performance. I also got a chance to use this to jump start my truck. The truck battery had drained after sitting over a month without being started. The power station had been charged two months prior and was left in the bed of the truck the entire time. I was surprised when it was able to jump start the V-8 engine with ease. I had to let it charge the truck battery for about 1 minute before starting the motor. I'm raising the 3 star rating to 4. Would be a 5 if not for the short hose, cheap air valve and short jumper cables.

2nd UPDATE: 2+ years later, it's still working great!

Size: 1000 Peak Amp with Compressor Verified Purchase
The basic function of one of these things is pretty simple: take a car with a dead battery and give it enough of a boost in juice to get the engine to turn over. They certainly beat trying to find and then position someone to get a jump between cars.

That said, there are several different "flavors" of jump starters. I've had the smaller 200 amp versions and found myself stranded when it didn't have enough oomph to start my car from a fully dead battery. I don't drive a tank or a pick-up with a Hemi, so it's not like I needed a lot of juice. The little one just didn't have the power. The person that was kind enough to brave a torrential downpour and give me a jump had a 500 amp that worked like a charm.

This thing is a life saver. Off of one charge, it's jump started over five cars and one was an Avalanche with a stone dead battery. The battery has held a charge for over a year, even being in my trunk the whole time. On top of being beefy enough to start every vehicle I've attached it to, there are little bells and whistles that add to the overall wow. There's an attached LED mini-spotlight comparable to a medium mag-lite, an air compressor and - get this - a USB port AND a socket similar to your car's cigarette lighter in case you want to power/charge a gadget for hours at a time without being near a computer. This thing has some heft but I didn't find it obnoxiously heavy. It certainly weighed less than a regular car battery!

1. Portable
2. Powerful
3. Simple to use
4. Easy to understand charge meter
5. Attached LED light for use at night
6. Includes a USB port
7. Includes a cigarette lighter socket (and cord) for both powering gadgets and slow trickle charging your car's battery.

1. No charge cord.

Size: 1000 Peak Amp with Compressor Verified Purchase
I drive a honda ridgeline pickup truck and my wife drive a honda civic. I've been looking for a decent jumpstarter that would be powerful enough for both of our vehicles. Rather then having 2 various models it just seemed easier to get two identical units. After reading reviews on several various jump-starters I opted for this model.

Now the most negative thing I could find about this thing was it lacked a flat charger so you couldn't leave it plugged in. For me that's not even a factor, after all I bought this to charge it and then put it in the trunk of my wifes car and in the cargo area of my truck. I don't intend on leaving this plugged in. So if you plan on using this HOW IT IS DESIGNED then you too don't even need to worry about the lack of a float charger.

That being said, the unit itself is a bit heavy, imagine picking up really big battery, that's essentially what this is. It has some weight to it.

The jumpstarter itself also features an interesting little light that pivots as well as an air compressor. I've heard/read back reviews on the air compressor, for me it's not why I bought it. But initial checks it looks like it works fine and even has somewhere to store the air hose which is really nice.

The one negative I have on this thing is the power switch for the air compressor is on the back and is not protected. In other words it could in theory be flipped on and drain the battery. So when you need to jump your car the starter would be dead. I wish they put a cover or moved the switch but honestly it would take a perfect mistake for that to get turned on so it's really not that critical. To prevent this from potentially happening I actually went down to Target and bought 2 milk crates,one for me and one for my wife.
