I don't know much about these things, but for the price - I think this is a good punt. Some good reviews. What sold it to me was the video of some guy showing this kit starting a cold engine (after 4 attempts) - without the battery connected!

Pretty cool gadget for emergencies - if it doesnt start your car - at least you can charge your phone to amuse yourselves whilst you wait for recovery!

Maybe you need another car if you have to use these more than a couple of …Maybe you need another car if you have to use these more than a couple of times


Or just a new battery
Would this jump start my old fella or stick with the Viagra?
Need one of these to jump start me most mornings lol
Bought one ages ago. Worked OK for a couple of times, but even with a meticulous battery care regime soon died....
Perhaps I just had a duff one.
Would I buy another... No.

Looks a bit small, or looks like a rebranded 300a one.. anyone used this. I'm have a 3.2 diesel and though... It it can start that then wow.

I had a similar experience as well where it started ticking like a bomb . Maybe some broken relay inside but it was very scary . Amazon kindly refund ed my money.

I’ve started a totally flat Nissan GT-R with one of these! You would be surprised how effective they are.

It’s a capacitor it charges, hence the current it can deliver.
no its just a few lithium polymer batterie

youtube review from 2016 to give an idea of uses

I cleaned my TDi SAAB last month and left the lights on, all night. Doh.
Next morning the battery was completely drained. I'd bought my partner one of these and I thought I'd give it a chance.
No way, it started on the first turn of the key. You could have knocked me down with a feather.
Such a small thing started my car, amazing gadget.

A 300a one could have done that. But diesels need more torque to start them and hence more current. It would genuinely need to be a 600a one otherwise it may cause a few problems to say the least.

I’m sure you’re right but it’s one of those things you just don’t know til you try it - I never wanted to drain the battery to try it or deliberately put myself in that situation. I mentioned this car as while it’s not a diesel, it’s a pretty big and complex (therefore I assume high inertia) engine.

To be honest this was more about how good these little battery jump starts are.
Bought a very similar one of these a while back and as I didn't trust it (looked and felt like rubbish) I did a test by leaving my car headlights on until there was only just enough power in the battery to slowly turn the starter motor - not enough to start the car.

Hooked the device up and it made virtually no difference at all. Certainly not enough to start the car. In my experience they are absolute garbage and in no way should be depended on to help get you out of a tight spot.

As another warning as well - as soon as you see detailed 5 star reviews on Amazon these days with photos and videos, you can be pretty sure they are paid for reviews and should be disregarded in their entirty.

10/10 would jump start you

The power bank part is a lithium battery and the massive plastic thing that plugs into the jump start port is a capacitor (which is charged before you jump start). Lithium ion batteries cannot output that kind of current safely repeatedly which is why cars don’t use them as the primary battery and still use lead acid.

EDIT: I’m starting to wonder about exactly how this functions so if someone has a full teardown video...
Edited by: "plewis00" 10th Mar
I have been looking out for something like this for a long time. Always been put off by high cost. Just watched a few video reviews and it seems to be a decent product. Certainly good value compared to the many alternatives currently on Amazon. So, basically a well featured 18000mah power-bank with a car start sub-system. For the price, very good value. AUKEY is a decent brand name, though the product may date from a year or 2 ago. Anyway just bought one, so many thanks OP...

Is this Aukey the same?
Bought an 8000mah RavPower featured on hukd a few weeks ago. The recent sub-zero temps hammered the battery on my old 2L petrol Toyota which is only used weekends. The starter actuator just clicked and wouldn't give a single turn of the engine. Connected the device (not even using the 'boost' function ) and my old Toyota fired up on first turn of the key. The lights on the unit then indicated almost fully charged still. I was gob-smacked to say the least 😊 .... Ordered this one too. Thanks op

watch the video its 300, with 600 peak. it gets no where near it. there are none in the plastic thing!

what batteries do tesla use lead acid i dont think so

Do Tesla jump start a massive block of metal with high current I don’t think so

Anyway it is possible it doesn’t contain a capacitor, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of certainty over how it does or doesn’t work. However I do know it turned over a big engined car of mine when it was so low it could barely unlock the doors.

I bought a plug in (mains 230v) car charger and starter 20 years back - one of the best things I ever bought, over the years I have had cars that don't start because of the cold / when the battery was die ing - I have always managed to start the car with it and get to work as well as charge the car when working on it (I have a BMW which will drain the battery if you leave it unlocked as well as when programming it has enough power to keep the car charged while the programs think)
I know it is sightly different but for reliable car starting mine would be better

Nothing wrong with smart chargers like that but I think they are both needed/useful. Smart chargers keep the battery topped up and fresh but I would wonder if the battery ran really flat if it could jump start. The portable jump starts can be used day-to-day as power banks and if the unfortunate happens with a flat battery. I had no idea 2-3 weeks of being parked was enough to run my battery totally flat (like cannot unlock the doors flat), the jump start helped me out there. Anyway I sold the car in the end, what’s the point in a car I rarely get to drive...

there is a switch in the back of my car that - the instructions tell me - if the car is to be parked for more than a couple of weeks to switch into a power saving mode - I have tried it and you have to switch it back on to start the car!
I don't like these modern cars - you used to be able to leave your car for months - bring back the starting handle

What car is that? I haven't seen that before but my other car is a hybrid and that brings it's own issues including two separate batteries - one of which is tiny for running the non-mechanical drive electronics and runs flat really quick, turns out just running the satnav, radio and headlights for about 30 minutes in what would be the 'acc on' position will run it flat then it can't start the hybrid system. This is because all it does is send a relay signal to the main system to start. Very complex and I didn't know at the time, I know now and won't make that mistake again... I did call and ask what happens if it had run 'too flat' and they said you will need to be towed as you can't jump the hybrid system easily!

BMW 730d - quite an old model 2005 - it has a fibre optic network system as well as 2 normal networks + god knows how many computers - it has a very large AMG battery in the boot but the car uses close on to 100 amps if not running with the key in, so can drain the battery quite quickly , I would never jump start it - if it ever was to go flat I would charge it first if not buy a new battery / I would not have thought it was as complex as a hybrid though.
One of the jobs I had was taking cars off a car transporter. I had to put them in storage where they stayed for a month or so.
The Fiat 500 had to have the battery disconnected once I'd locked the car. Apparently if left for more than 2 weeks the battery goes flat.
Heat added. In fact one of the positive reviews left on amazon is mine.
This thing started my dead battery twice now and is so well made and solid. A must have for the car boot.

It works so well I was thinking of putting out an ad that I will drive to anyone within the M25 with a flat battery and start their cr for a £20 flat rate plus fuel costs
I'd make a ******* mint

Looks like a misprice as it's been removed and listed for £90. I ordered 2 so will update if they arrive.

Mine still says waiting for dispatch.
My order just got cancelled.
Mine got dispatched! The seller said Amazon fulfills them so they had no control over which ones went out or not.
