Tested: DBPOWER 600A 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter
By Erik Jacobs
Battery technology has improved dramatically over the last few years. And, with it, a proliferation of new devices has appeared on the market. With lighter and more powerful batteries, the jump box / jump starter market has absolutely exploded, and sizes have shrunk markedly. I had two more or less dead old-style lead-acid jump boxes in my garage, and wanted something that I could keep (easily) in my car at all times. I figured I would give one of these new-fangled, lightweight jump boxes a try.
These jump boxes are all rated in engine displacement, which I guess makes sense. But it also leads me to believe that the amp capacity ratings are somewhat bogus. Or not. Either way, I figured I would give this one a whirl. For $69.99 shipped via Amazon Prime, what harm could it do?
This would certainly make it easy to keep all of the little doodads and doohickeys that it comes with neat and tidy.
Good luck getting everything back in here, though. Some serious Tetris skills are required.
