@WTFsunshine one more thing, some insurance companys(like progressive and others) have roadside assistance for dollars a month extra on your insurance, its so much cheaper than AAA. also some premium credit cards also have road side assistance
@spitfire6006006@communist@wholeflaffer All very valid points. But I’m in a small city with seven tow companies that do AAA (My Daddy is a frequent flier and longest wait time was 20 minutes - only because he didn’t want to call us for the sixth time in a year). Helps that we both know law enforcement agency officers/deputies and troopers (Highway Patrol, Sheriffs Office and local P.D. all are based in this city) and fire department personnel. As well as the state park police and preservation parks personnel which is where my Daddy likes to go. We do have one of the PEAK jump starters in the car that will be our sons and got one for my Daddy. We all have exchanged extra car keys for everyone’s car kept in both houses and/or cars in my extended family for lockouts (same with house keys). Roadside assistance from insurance companies take longer than AAA for any of us. I’m not on it anymore, since I can no longer drive, so my son took my place. But it also helps that we know the police and firefighters in surrounding counties. AAA is just a backup in case a tow is needed for a breakdown or when traveling (the benefits they give for traveling pays for itself). I haven’t heard about credit card companies, so thank you for teaching me that. My husband and I got the credit card that puts a percentage of each of your total bill into investments (as long as it is paid off monthly which we always have been lucky enough to be able to do) and when our youngest graduates he can draw from that to help pay for college. As well as investing in a 529 and other investments recommend by an agent my Daddy found from the Marshals Office when he worked for the government. Our oldest didn’t need it since he went straight into the Navy to be a corpsman and he is in his last medical class and youngest to get to E6 (yes - that was a slight humble brag-but I’m proud of him). Only thing that scares me now is if they attach him to a Marine unit (he was working with Seal Team 17 for a while) and with what I read about Drumf wanting to send more troops to the Middle East I’m afraid he might go. He was supposed to go back down towards San Diego after this class for another medical assignment but now I worry. Sorry it’s so long just to say that you all had good things to point out, as well as teaching me something I didn’t know, but I also wanted you to understand the reasoning behind what I typed.
@spitfire6006006 YupYup! for some reason my battery likes to die at random times, I have a short somewhere in my truck that drains my battery and i was jumping it at least once or twice a month and AAA only gives you three call outs before they start charging so i went to NAPA Auto Parts and bought a portable jumper (same with what AAA uses) and now i just jump my truck myself
@RedOak Yep, it’s long (apologies were included in the p a r a g r a p h - but I don’t see why I’ll be laughing in the morning. Since all replied to the original two words and three letter comment I made I then replied in kind to each one made (and then some extra in the end - I can get wordy - since apparently a short comment can be taken wrong).
Synonyms for “Daddy” may have been helpful . . . I scanned the long paragraph and thought it contained pr0n. Which is totally fine. In fact, it may probably be the only reason why I ended up reading the whole damn thing.
These are super handy and more convenient than the old lead acid ones. Smart clamps are a good idea, I have fried one of these (without smart clamps) with reverse polarity in a moment of mental weakness with an unfamiliar car. And 600A means it’s good for bigger engines like V8s. Some of the wimpier ones are only good for little 4 cylinder engines.
If I hadn’t already replaced the one I fried I’d be a buyer on this deal.
@cengland0 I’ve actually avoided buying a new lawnmower battery all year so far thanks to mine. I do need to get around to replacing the mower battery, but every weekend when i remember I haven’t, out comes the battery pack and a-mowin’ I go.
@djslack All the vender answers about amperage output on Amazon say it’s only 400 amps peak output.
“Question: Whats the max amps this can put out? My engine needs 600amps on the starter to start. Will this work?
Answer: This jump starter will supply up to 400 amps.
By SICK_DEALS SELLER on January 18, 2017”
@PhysAssist I was just going by the stated specs. 600A is in the ballpark of 50C and 400A is about 35C, both of which are common current ratings for lithium batteries, so that doesn’t help eliminate one possibility.
You do have to watch Amazon because if different variants are listed as product options, q&a and reviews for all those variants will be lumped together. Sometimes this is a huge pain in the ass.
@djslack Hook that mower battery to a desulfinator charger and the battery will hold a charge like new. I’ve brought friend’s batteries (from motorcycles to deep cycle marine) back to life that they gave up on.
@djslack Sweeet. Haven’t used a Schumacher, but I think you’ll be pleased. Sometimes you’ll find a stubborn batt that won’t desulf because the plates have too little ‘clean’ surface area to start the desulf process. If you get a stubborn one, hit it with a few doses (don’t overdo it!) of 10 amp jump start current to knock off some of the lead sulfate and it should desulf after that. G/L, lemme know how it goes!
@gregormehndel this charger does everything automatically, so i have no confirmation whether it was desulfating or not. I do know that after the first overnight session it said it was charged, but it wouldn’t crank. Disconnected and restarted the cycle, and it seemed a little stronger every day for a few days, then it started killing the battery (but showing it was charged every day). When the red light by the key wouldn’t even light yesterday, i finally got the multimeter out. 8.74 volts. The side I could easily uncap while in the mower showed a reasonable level of electrolyte, but I didn’t check the other half. I suppose it could have cooked it off but i find that unlikely at 1.5a max current.
I bought a new battery today and installed it. As far as I know that was the original battery from 2006 so it probably should have been replaced anyway.
@djslack That is a weird experience. The desulf electronics are supposed to prevent overdoing it. LYS, probably did not cook off the electrolyte, but I’m very curious as to what happened. I guess you got your money’s worth from that batt! thx for writing back. Life got busy, didn’t mean to leave you hanging.
@ManBehindPlan My 800A doesn’t have a compass. I noticed the new release 600A so I thought I would mention it, as it sells very well and appeared that whilst accounting for idiot users, it garnered pretty decent reviews. I think you’re right about the moss being more useful, unless, of course, you find yourself south of the equator.
@Pavlov I bought your linked 800A and they seem very solid. They came 97% charged, but I went ahead and charged them up to 100%. No compass on mine. Both of my cars a Detroit V8 iron, so I didn’t want to risk the meh offering being only 400A. Thanks!
@Stallion I had a situation where a guy was trying to help someone with regular jumper cables and they couldn’t get the car to start. I tried my lithium box and it started immediately. Everyone was surprised such a small device worked better than jumper cables.
@Kidsandliz Hope your day is going good so far down this way it’s not looking to good. Just wanted to say I have a Cobra 400A Peak Current USB Power Pack 7500mAh Battery Capacity and I love it. I have Jumped off 6 cylinder, 4 cylinder and more and the price was double what this one is. I love having them around since my daughter is always forgetting to turn off her headlights.It will also jump start a car though the cigarette lighter they will fit into a shirt pocket and I would recommend grabbing this up because the price is right, oh wait wasn’t that a game show? You should see the look on peoples faces when I pull this lil ole thing out and it jumps their cars off, Well gotta run gotta a storm moving in have a wonderful and safe weekend and all the rest of you down here in Texas please take care ,be safe and hang on this looks like a rough one. Your all in my prayers. Peace ✌ out.
@croneyzzzz funny- I played one of my quiz games after this and one of the questions/answer had this topic on it. "What AAA brings = tower. I mention AAA and get my shit jumped and you say it 54 minutes later and nada. Didn’t know that AAA won’t touch a motorcycle. Wonder why? They should make it known upfront about that. Hope it works out well for you.
I have a short in my truck somewhere haven’t been able to find it so it slowly drains my battery so if i don’t go somewhere for a couple of days my battery dies and i have to jump it.
I average a jump about twice a month, I have AAA but they only give you 3 call ours per 365 days and i had already used two call outs just to jump my truck so i just said fudge it and went to NAPA Auto and bought a portable jumper battery pack so i can jump start myself it’s already paid for itself since i bought it last fall i’ve had to use it numerous times and i have also used it to help a few people stranded back in the winter when they left their lights on and battery died on them.
I might go ahead and purchase these so i don’t have to lug that heavy battery pack around with my bad back.
I have a short in my truck somewhere haven’t been able to find it so it slowly drains my battery
That can be crazy frustrating diagnosing it. Draining your battery repeatedly to the point where it needs jumping kills the battery prematurely.
It could be an old, marginal battery or charging system as well. All vehicles have parasitic battery drain when sitting unused.
Have you tried systematically pulling fuses to isolate the problem circuit? Seems like it would likely be a circuit that stays active after you turn off the car. Or it could be a fried relay that is leaving a circuit live when it shouldn’t.
I don’t know if they make an ammeter sensitive enough for this purpose, but you might even be able to do it in one sitting rather than pulling a fuse… waiting… repeating…
Or you could Google it for smarter diagnosis procedures.
(Is it too obvious I’m putting off doing something I don’t want to do?)
I have 2 not this brand though, keep one in my boat in summer , 2nd one in my truck just in case. Daughter has one for her motorcycle. Looking for a larger amp unit so i may take a pass on this…Beware though the weak part on some brands are the plastic clamps coming apart…
I have one from RavPower and bought this one on a lightning deal for $39 for the gf. Both are awesome. I’ve charged mine once in two years, used it about 6 times and it still shows as being 3/4 charged. This, a small air compressor, and a tire plug kit have gotten me and others back on the road many times over.
I highly recommend this particular air compressor. It’s quieter and stronger than most that tend to run close to this price range. Check out the reviews.
Very low battery. Some Jump Starters are quite multifunctional and can be used for charging cell phones, tablets, and notebooks. Consider whether a chosen Jump Starter has got a built-in battery. Travelers are going to highly appreciate it as an additional source of power for use of various camping appliances, e.g. a ventilator or illuminating devices And with 8000 mAh that would be difficult. If we talk about large capacities of batteries, with small cases, then there are many models from different manufacturers that fit in your pocket, and the battery is much better. Here is an example of several of these, the site is not commercial, in order to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each model. Spammyspamspam
@djslack First, hello to the Big and Evil Man, Who Is the Coolest in the World!
Secondly, it means the volume of the battery, not its presence or lack of (I would like to look at the jump starter without the battery at all).
Thirdly, if I have incorrectly stated my thoughts in some place, it is enough to say this to me and show how correctly.
Fourth, do not press your certainly Great Authority and first to figure out what’s wrong.
On this perhaps all, I have a terrible day sitting on the Internet spoiled conceited people.
