12 Volt Jump Start Kit with Air Compressor and Power Supply Reviews
DEFECTIVE February 19, 2007
I ordered the battery charger for my Dad in Florida as a Christmas gift.
The light works along with the compressor. However, when my Dad tried to boost a car with the jump starter, it did not work.
I have another bound starter at home in Brooklyn. It was made by Vector and it has a switch for on and off.
The jumpstarter that I ordered for my Dad does not have a switch for on or off.
I think that I may have received a defective piece of equipment.
Just to let you know.
WASTE OF MONEY May 10, 2009
I bought it for $[...] plus shipping from Unbeatablesale.com and its useless. There isn't an ON and OFF switch to dive start the battery and it does not work at all. The air compressor is very loud and slow, it took me 10 minutes to inflate one Bicycle tire.
Cheap made weak whimpy worthless box. April 21, 2010
This is one poor excuse for a jumper box. It doesn't have enough power to actually do anything. The nouns compressor is worthless. I tried to air up the front tire of my little trail bike, a 1974 Yamaha 175 enduro, and after about 45 seconds it just quit and hasn't run since. After being on the charger for over 2 days I tried to use it to jump start my Datsun 260Z that has a little strait 6 in it. It couldn't even turn it over once muchless start it. The clamps on the ends of the cable that you are supposed to use to connect it to a battery are nothing but weak molded plastic with light weight copper contacts that bend with the least amount of pressure. I've seen wood clothes pins for a clothes dash with more grip. I just got through trying to use it to jump start my lawn mower. After having it plugged into the charger for 2 days it only lasted long enough to spin the starter on the mower 4 or 5 times for a few second each time. Then it just run down and quit. And that was just a little 6.5 hp motor on a Stanley self propelled walk behind rotary mower with 12 volt electric start. So far the only article that I have found this to be good for is a door stop.
Save yourself some aggravation, frustration and money, DO NOT get one of these.
