Amazon has a few reviews, one of which is claiming it was responsible for a fire
I saw that firestarter comment, plus it’s only $5 less here than on Prime. Was about to buy. Opah! …Put inna bucket & fugg it!
Wrong, that was for a different model with a totally different power pack design.
Based on these reviews at Amazon I see why this is selling so cheaply… http://www.amazon.com/Uniden-UPP60-Emergency-6000mAh-Starter/dp/B00T9MLKYA
In case anyone’s interested after reading the review of the battery catching fire…
Needles to say, it’s not a bad idea to keep an eye on most Any Li-ion batteries while charging. Li-ion batteries don’t like extreme heat or cold – reviews I’ve read of these jump starters commonly say the batteries don’t work if left in the car during winter, & left in the car during summer, they may develop bulging cases etc. And Li-ion batteries don’t like to be left for long periods unused with a full charge – we keep ours fully charged during winter, but leave it at 1/2 charge the rest of the year.
i bought one of these about 2 months ago. the battery doesn’t work anymore, and the compressor only hooks into the battery. so it’s absolutely useless. it worked for @ 2 charges, now it wont charge anymore. a waste of money. obviously these are old, and the batteries are exspired.
jumped my f150 with a v8
For the future generations, I realized this is sold out already. Got mine today and right out of the box the battery is dead: charged it for over 8 hours and the moment I unplug it from the wall, it immediately dies. Contacted Woot, hopefully they have another one or something better, but yeah it’s useless…
