Which portable jump starter (12vdc) do you own or would like to own?

Got this one for FREE off one of those Facebook amazon review pages. It has started my xj a lot since I don't have a battery charger anymore to do it the right way.
It has started my baby cummins and my big cummins a few times too. I like it. Probably started vehicles 12 times with it and have never charged the unit. 68f152f1895ca17aedccb0f334ad8118.jpg

I have never owned a booster pack per say. I have always just drug an old battery and cables around. However this year for christmas my boss got me an adapter that fits my 18v makita batteries. It is custom designed and built specifically for jumpstarting. It is not an authorized makita tool but has been tested and works. The company that made it builds them to fit all major manufacturers battery platforms. I have tried it out a few times and it seems to work well.  I'll get some pics later when I get to the shop.

I have the one NAPA sells. I think Blue Fuel. It works OK. I have started by XJ 2-3 times with it. Not saying it is the best out there. I have the smaller version. I bought the larger for my mom, a few Christmases ago. She already had one. Don't know which family member snatched it.

It has a hardwired circuit breaker in it for safety.

 

I think it will be handy to have in the truck. I always have a few batteries charged with me anyways.

I really like this. It  looks small and easy to manage. I would guess its a lot lighter than lots of the other ones too.

Indeed it is. Its a great option for my situation. It will take the place of the wad of jumper cables behind the seat.

I'm eyeballing the GB40.

Pro tip: Don't pay full price. These things are very popular right now and they go on sale every few weeks. If your need isn't urgent, set an Amazon price alert and just wait a bit for the next 20-30% off sale.
