@fastharry@OnionSoup Actually, starter current draw on most vehicles should be under 200 amps. I have one of these at work and use it often. Now HOW they manage to deliver 200 amps through what looks like 16 gauge wire with oversized alligator clips without melting is still a mystery to me, but it works.
@Steve7654 Small displacement 4 cylinder or one of those eco start/stop engines designed for quick restart might do with only 200 amps. But try that with an 8 or largish 6 cylinder after being dead overnight in winter and you’ll wish it had more CCA.
@Steve7654 I think the key is that the current pushed for a very short time (~1sec), which means the wire doesn’t have a chance to stay hot. If your car pulled from the battery for 10+ secs it would probably melt
Nope, no wireless charging, but CostCo sells one with a built-in wireless phone charger, but it’s only 8000 mAH (8AH). Note that these units have three Li-Ion cells in series, and they are adding their mAH (not correct, but they all do it), so each cell is about 2700 mAH (3300 for the MEH offering).
This work for anyone? I got one to replace the (apparently much better one) I got from a woot boc, and even if I wait for it to completely drain it won’t start my '91 volvo bertone with a tiny 4 cylinder engine. I tried once every 5 minutes or so the first time, then recharged it and let it go all the way down to 0 the second.
