Your Guide To Buying a Jump Starter

By Ben Reed

    Whether you are an infrequent driver or spend a lot of your time on the open road, jump starters are one of those items that every motorist should have in their trunk. They are a popular choice because unlike jumper cables, in the unfortunate case of a dead battery, drivers are not reliant on another vehicle to get them up and running again. There are a lot of options out there, so to help you jump start your search our shopping guide has all the information you need to choose the right one for you.

    Jump starters differ in one important way and can be divided into two categories. Here is a short summary of each jump starter for you to compare:

    Standard Jump Starters: These standard jump starters quickly and efficiently get your vehicle battery started in an emergency situation, allowing you to start your car and let it run to charge your car’s battery back up, or get it over to the nearest mechanic. They are small and light and ideal for those situations where you may need an extra kick to get your battery going again giving it a chance to self-charge.

    Battery Charger Jump Starters: Including a built-in battery charger, these jump starters not only get your vehicle started but also have the ability to partially recharge your dead battery, allowing you to start your car normally. These jump starters are ideal for people looking for a little extra security and are a great device to have in case you are caught with a more serious battery problem.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    1. Durability: Reviewers praise jump starters that are tough, and complain about ones that are not. As the jump starter is stored in garages and trunks, and is often used in poor weather conditions, durability is key to ensuring a long life for your jump starter.
    2. Features: Jump starters with additional features are favored much more than those that don’t have them. Owners note that emergency lights make their jump starters versatile and easier to use, and it’s the highest rated jump starter feature.
    3. Charge Meter: Owners rate jump starters with easy to use and understand charger meters much higher as they feel this makes it easier to know how much power the car battery has. Checking brand model reviews and specs will help you choose a jump starter with this convenient feature.
    4. Charge: Battery charger jump starters are in general rated much higher than standard jump starters. It is important though that the one you get be slow to discharge power, as it may go months without use, until suddenly you need it working well in that moment. A jump starter that as discharged since you last used it won’t be of any use them, so avoid low quality battery charger jump starters that are known to discharge quickly.
    • The first thing to make sure of when choosing a jump starter is that your vehicle battery and jump starter are compatible, which is done by matching voltage. Most vehicles are probably going to have 12 volt battery but for bigger vehicles, farm equipment, or even classic cars your battery could be as little as 6 volts.
    • In situations where you have forgotten and left your lights on for an extended period of time, resulting in a completely dead battery, you will need a powerful kick start. It is important to check the manufacturer specs of the jumper starter to make sure it is capable of sending the peak amperage needed to revive your dead battery.
    • The clamps of the jump starter are an important purchase consideration. This is because well-insulated, solid clamps will ensure more safety, especially in rainy weather, when connecting the battery to the charger.
    • For better movement and flexibility when connecting your starter to your battery, check that your prospective jump starter has a cable length of at least 3 feet.
    • Added features like emergency lights and emergency radios all add functionality to your starter that can be helpful in emergency situations.
    • Warranties differ from manufacturer to manufacturer and will range anywhere from 90 days to 2 years. The longer the warranty, the more covered you are in the case of malfunction.
    • How light and portable do you need your jump starter to be? The greater the power, the heavier (and the bigger) your unit will be. For smaller vehicles with less space or in cases where you need something lighter, consider a more compact unit.
    • Once you have revived your battery, your vehicle's alternator will recharge your car battery, but the jump starter will be low on power. Power can also drain over time when unused, so it is important that you check battery levels on a regular basis.
    • Battery charger jump starters that include outlets for charging phones and other devices will make sure your devices are never out of power if you find yourself stranded.
    • Cranking amps is the measurement of how much power the starter’s battery will have when jumping your car. The higher the cranking amps the jump starter has, the more power it will have and therefore the more likely it will be to get a low battery restarted again.
    • Your battery charger jump starter should include a built-in AC cord for convenient recharging when it is stored.
    • Jump starters with a trickle charger will quickly charge a battery but with very little chance of the battery overcharging, which can affect the lifespan of your vehicle battery.

The PowerAll can jump your car, charge your phone, and help you navigate in the dark with its built-in flashlight.

    Duracell: Duracell is known for being one of the world’s leading producers of alkaline batteries, but their lines of powerpacks and jump starters are high-energy, on-the-go options for portable vehicle power to get you out of the worst situations.
