I originally purchased this for emergency use in case my battery dies or a tire goes flat. For that purpose, I have used it many times, both to jump-start my car when the battery died and to fill my car and motorcycle tires with air when they start to get low. Just having it available for these tasks makes it completely worth what I had paid for it. However, by far the most number of times I have used this is to help a stranger in need.
Whenever I drive by and see someone staring dumbly at their car with the hood up, I stop and ask if they need any help. More often than not, they just need a jump-start. Out comes my Jump-N-Carry and within just a few seconds, their vehicle is running again. It is as simple as placing it near their vehicle, putting the red cable on their positive connector, black cable on their negative connector and telling them to start the vehicle. Every time, the vehicle had started instantly--no hesitation. I once had to use the jump-starter three times in a single day without needing to charge it. I am very impressed with its performance.
There are smaller and lighter ones out there, but if you need something you can depend on, this beast of a jump-starter will not disappoint you.
The reviews were about equal on both so I decided to get the JNC660
Well, I just received the JNC660 today and it is defective right out of the box.
I plugged it in to charge and the amber led that is suppose to be lit does not indicate it is charging. The Green LED does not show it is fully charged either.
I verified my power cord has power from the outlet; even switched to another cord.
Disappointed; I guess companies no longer have QC on their products.
UPDATE: Feb 04, 2014
After realizing that Amazon will not accept returns on this item, I contacted Clore Automotive tech support and explained that I had received a defective jump pack. I reviewed with them the various items I had checked to confirm that it was indeed defective.
After they confirmed that I had purchased it via Amazon, they shipped a new JNC660 to me along with a prepaid UPS label to return to them the defective unit. I had the replacement unit in 5 days after contacting them. The replacement unit works great.
Clore Automotive gets 5 stars from me for making this disappointing defective unit right.
One minor sour note however. The alligator clamps are always live, so when storing be careful not to short them (although as you see in the photo, the metal parts are effectively covered). Also, probably for this reason, the metal jaws are recessed about half an inch from the end of the clamp, making it awkward to get a good grip on the today's smooth-surface, plastic-covered engines with their low-profile bolts. (My car's recommended grounding point doesn't allow a good grip with these, but is fine with "naked metal" clamps.) So the one thing this product could use is an on/off switch for the clamps. The red button is just momentary to show power level, and the yellow button is on/off for the socket only. It could also use an LED "on" indicator for the socket. If you remove the little lamp from the lighter socket, and if the yellow button is on, you have an exposed live socket. Or, if you have an electronic device plugged into it, the device might be sucking power when you thought the socket was off. Also, the socket is on the shallow side, so some plugs might pop out. (I ended up wiring a short aftermarket plug to a deeper one, which is a solution, but we shouldn't have to do that.)
