This seems fake.
Why? I have a similar one and it started my son’s car last month just fine.
I’ve been using a similar device all summer to start my lawn tractor every week (I don’t feel like buying another battery for it). It’s also been starting my Miata for the past month (parasitic drain somewhere). These are great devices and everyone should have one in every car. That being said, the 6000mAh is kinda small, I’d like to see 10k+ in my next one. Also, 350 amps of starting would be fine for my Miata but I’d be surprised if it started a cold V8.
I just jumped started my next door neighbor’s patrol vehicle (He is a county Sheriff). He is looking to buy one now.
Yes, they do work.
how long does the device hold a charge so you know it’s ready when you need it?
did not see how it recharges. AC? DC?-- no cord shown.
Not recommended, except maybe for small 4-cylinders.
I got this on woot some years ago and needed get use it to jump my fairly big 3.5 liter V6. It failed miserably. The battery was emptied in a single attempt to turn over the engine. Also, the clamps have a plastic connection for the metal spring, which broke easily. Though most competitors use similar clamps, so be gentle with them.
I used a competitor that I bought for my wife, which started my car without hesitation. And that battery still showed 3 of 4 bars of capacity.
This unit has a few pluses: it’s compact, the multi device cable is handy, it is charged with a convenient micro USB cable, and it’s a few bucks cheaper. But I would upgrade even for a smaller car. Even if it could handle my wife’s 4 cylinder Camry, I’d still be worried about limited capacity if it hasn’t been charged recently enough. I don’t want to strand my wife. I’ll just use it as an overpriced USB battery once I get a better one.
Some tips when you’re about to use this device or any other: shut off all accessories, especially A/C and lights; and leave it connected for a minute or two before trying to start the car. Also, charge it monthly.
