Jump box

Postby Birddog247 » Mon Dec 07, 2015 10:13 pm

Ive recently seen a lot of different options for portable jump boxes. Just wondering which ones are worth a shit? I tried one from one of the local parts stores and I was not impressed to say the least.

I have the big 1 antigravity makes. It's a little bigger than 2 i phones, so it's small. Has flawlessly started everything I've tried except 1 of our big loaders. And it's started it a couple times. There another thread somewhere on here about this very subject
U can in hook it to the battery in a car (or boat) and it'll fire right up

I have this one but it looks like the same one is branded under multiple names. same green/black one with flashlight and all the connectors. This little thing has started my v8 truck, o-320 lycoming, and 300 hp yamaha outboard by it self. for under $70 i am very impressed. also has connectors to charge phones, laptops, etc.

Get the one at napa, it has a real warranty. Don't go cheap.
