I set it in my calendar to charge every 6 months. I have had to use this twice since I have owned it. Both times it had been under the seat of my pickup for at least 4 months. Performed as expected.

Answer:
We revised our rating due to a change in the testing standards developed in a partnership with UL. However, the new 3000A GB150 is significantly more powerful than any previous versions.

Answer:
I believe the Noco marketing department just made some adjustments to make the specs "slightly" more realistic. I believe that the new "3000A" units are essentially the same as the older "4000A" units. See my previous answer on this page (Newest first) for much more info. Hope this helps. :)

Answer:
The cables for the GB150 and GB70 will not disconnect from the battery pack. The GB20 and GB40 are the only Genius Boost models with cables that disconnect from the battery pack.

Answer:
The previous Noco GB150's showed 4000A on the front; whereas the new GB150's show 3000A on the front. However I believe they are essentially the same unit. Keep in mind that 4000A or 3000A is just PEAK amps, likely just for a few milliseconds. The GB150 still has the same battery capacity of 88 Wh (watt hours); equival… see more The previous Noco GB150's showed 4000A on the front; whereas the new GB150's show 3000A on the front. However I believe they are essentially the same unit. Keep in mind that 4000A or 3000A is just PEAK amps, likely just for a few milliseconds. The GB150 still has the same battery capacity of 88 Wh (watt hours); equivalent to 7.4 Ah @ 12V.

The GB150 has an actual jump starting output equivalent to 625 amps @ 12V for 3 seconds (22.5 kilo-joules 3s).

A kilo-joule of energy is basically 1,000 watts for just 1 second. For reference 22.5 kilo-joules of energy would be like a 102 kilogram (225 lb) weight being raised 22.5 meters (73 feet) up in the air. That's how much energy the GB150 has for available for each jump start.

If you need more power, check out "Weego Crankenstein 12V/24V Jump Starting Power Pack, 5000 Peak 1200 Cranking Amps..." for $400 on Amazon. Its Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery has a capacity of 154 Wh (watt hours); equivalent to 12.8 Ah @ 12V. This type of battery is good for 2,000 full charge cycles and/or 10+ years. Though it is a little heavier at 9 lbs.

I believe the "Crankenstein" has a jump starting output equivalent to 1,200 amps @ 12V for 3 seconds (43.2 kilo-joules). Imagine that 102 kilogram (225 lb) weight being raised 43.2 meters (140 feet) up in the air.

If you want the ultimate jump starter, check out the "NOCO Boost Max GB500 20000 Amp 12V And 24V UltraSafe Lithium Jump Starter for Gasoline And Diesel Engines In Class 8+/CE Vehicles" for $1,800 on Amazon. The GB500 has a 266 Wh battery capacity; though it does weigh a hefty 33 lbs with its super heavy duty 00 gauge cables.

As far as jump starting, it has the equivalent of 2,222 amps @ 12V for 3 seconds; or 1,111 amps @ 24V for seconds. This is basically 80 kilo-joules of energy released in just 3 seconds! Imagine that 102 kilogram (225 lb) weight being raised 80 meters (260 feet) up in the air. Hope all this helps. :) see less

The Noco GB150 has a capacity of 88 watt hours. The TSA limit for lithium ion batteries is 100 Wh, carry on only. So it should, in theory, be possible.

The Noco GB150 has a capacity of 88 watt hours. The TSA limit for lithium ion batteries is 100 Wh, carry on only. So it should, in theory, be possible.

However I read on another forum about someone having trouble with TSA over the clamps themselves on a jump starter. I guess they were afraid of someone attaching the jump starter clamps to electronic equipment on the airplane and causing damage. I would be hesitant to attempt to take the Noco GB150 through a TSA checkpoint for fear of getting unit confiscated.

If you had a smaller model, like the Noco GB50 with detachable clamps, you could place clamps themselves separately in your checked luggage. Hope this helps. see less
