Top 10 Best Portable Jump Starters 2017

Everybody has experienced it. They turn the key in their ignition and the engine will not roll over. It will not ignite, no matter how much they crank it. So they step out of the car and pop the hood to take a look. Many people are not very tech-savvy, so they might just throw their hands up in futility as they gaze at the engine. They might be in luck if there is somebody nearby who can offer a jumpstart.

But one is not always in such a good situation. If a driver is alone at night, on a country road, there is really nowhere that they can inquire. Further, sometimes one might be in a position where they do not want to approach strangers. In general, we should want to be independent. That is why so many drivers are surveying portable jump starters for their car battery.

 

1 – Ivation Jump Starter


Taking that bulky jump starter on your family road trip might be a little burdensome. Perhaps you are going camping, driving out into the woods and all of your gear and equipment is loaded in the cargo hold. Having a jump starter back there might be massively inconvenient. However, the Ivation is a handheld jump starter that produces just as much power as a one of the bulky models. This should not strike us as surprising. In our technologically advanced era, things are getting faster, sleeker, and smaller. The Ivation follows that pattern, providing better tech in less space. Further, you can put all of that extra power to good use while you are driving as well. It has a UBS port so that you can charge your phone.

 

2 – Stanley J5C09 Jump Start

We have all been confronted with horror stories surrounding jump starters. With all of that power surging too and fro, it is possible for the human to serve as the unwilling conductor. That is definitely a concern for us as we jump start our vehicles. If we were giving somebody else a jump and saw that our wires were frayed, we would probably either put on some safety gloves or tell them that we just cannot do it. Safety is a major concern. Developers of the J5C09 have created a model that maximizes safety so as to prevent an electrical accident. It comes equipped with a reverse polarity alarm to ensure your safety, as well as an easy-grip handle. Many people who are concerned with their safety opt for the J5C09.

 

3 – PowerAll PBJS16000-RS

One of the main concerns that people have with a portable charger is that it will not generate enough power. They hope that they can get one jump out of it, but what about after the engine turns over and your need to rev the engine a little to ensure that the battery has enough power? Perhaps your portable charger will not have enough power to sustain that. That is why many people actually prefer getting a charge from another car, as they know that there will be enough power. But when fully charged, the PowerAll has enough juice to charge your car 20 times. That should be more than enough. Just keep the PowerAll charged after every time you use it.

 

4 – DBPOWER 600A

You do not get to choose where you break down. Ideally, if your engine is stalling, you will be able to pull into a well lit gas station and pop the hood without being concerned with anything that is going on around you. But people are not always so fortunate. Sometimes, we will find ourselves in a very dangerous situation. We might find ourselves on the side of the road, with traffic speeding past us. Particularly if it is at night, and you do not have your lights on (as your battery is dead) this can be a very dangerous situation. But the DBPower 600A comes equipped with three modes of an LED light. This means that if you want to alert traffic to your situation to avoid an accident, or you need to hail emergency services, the light on the 600A will serve you well.

 

5 – Suaoki T3 600A

There are some cold winter mornings where your engine is just too frozen to turn over. This can be particularly frustrating if you need to get to work in just a few short minutes, or if you have a long commute and the last thing that you need is for your engine to be frozen. You need a jump starter that is designed to give your battery the power that it needs to overcome the cold conditions. That is precisely that the Suaoki T3 is designed to do. Many consumers are reporting that on a cold winter morning, they can rely on their T3 and they do not have to worry that their engine might be frozen.

 

6 – Jump-N-Carry JNC660

Sometimes the condition of the battery makes it difficult to get a good jump. The battery is so corroded that it just will not work. This might be when one of the light duty models will not suffice. While they might be able to generate a lot of power, they are unparalleled by a heavy duty model such as the JNC660. This is because it comes equipped with strong clamps that will even allow you to get a charge in a corroded battery. While one should replace or repair a corroded battery, the JNC660 will help you to overcome that obstacle in the meantime. It has has 46 inch cables, so that if your car is positioned awkwardly, it will be able to get in to jump your battery when you would not be able to get another car in there.

 

7 – Jump-N-Carry JNCAIR 1700

Sometimes, you just have a really bad day. You pull over to the side of the road because your engine is stalling out, and as you are preparing to jump start, you notice that you have another problem. You also have a flat tire. So, now, after you jump your car, you need to fill up your tire. This additional excursion could take at least an hour out of your day. But innovators who developed the JNCCAIR 1700 recognized that it would be helpful to combine these two technologies. That is why it is both an air compressor and a jump starter. So, if you have a flat tire, the 1700 will fill it up for you.

 

8 – NOCO Genius Boost Plus GB40

The problem with your car is not always that the battery is stalling out. Sometimes, it is something else in the engine. But when models such as the G40 give an extra boost to the battery, it is usually enough to start the entire engine despite what caused it to stall out or what is preventing it from starting. Some reviewers report that they were able to get a successful jump even when it was the alternator that was preventing the car from starting. It is also compatible with smaller engines, such as those in a lawnmower or a boat. The GB40 has proven to be a great solution to a dead battery.

 

9 – NOCO Genius G26000


In our day of technological advancement, we are not satisfied unless we have scoured the market for the latest features. This is particularly prominent behind the wheel. We need our dashboard decorated with the latest driver assistance. Now, it seems that this has extended even to the technology of portable battery charging. The G26000 comes equipped with a number of impressive features. It will monitor your battery and alert you even during maintenance mode so that you will not have to worry about electrocution or shock. It also has spark proof technology, reverse polarity and overcharge protection. Some reviewers even report that it has been able to repair their damaged battery. In charging twice as fast as most other portable chargers, the G26000 implements the latest advances in engineering and technology to yield the optimal product.

 

10 – Schumacher SC-1200A/CA


Sometimes, too great of a charge can harm your battery. If you can charge an RV and a small sports car with the same portable charger, you need to ensure that they are not receiving the same amount of power. Either the battery in the sports car will incur damage, or the battery in the RV will not be sufficiently charged. But the SC-1200A is a smart battery that automatically detects the size of the battery and the amount of power that it needs, and it generates that power. In this way, one can use the same charger on a number of different batteries. This means that with this model, you can charge a motorcycle, car, or even an RV at a faster rate than most other portable chargers.
