NOCO Boost HD GB70 2000 Amp 12-Volt UltraSafe Portable Lithium Car Battery Booster Jump Starter. This is the heavy duty one in the series with a 56W internal battery (I think the GB50 is 38W and the GB20/40 are 24W) the bigger GB150 is 88W but at twice this price and is more for professional use. It is still expensive but a very good price for one of these. Could prove useful for when we get to drive again, especially as not using the car has a detrimental effect on the battery. Limited time deal on this specific one (making it £8.50 more than the GB50)

Could be a bedroom toy?
I've been thinking of getting a cheap jumper but who knows what's decent and what's not, these seem to have a good rep albeit a higher end of the budget.


Edit: for what it's worth it's a 027 battery in a TDI. Only bought it last July as well. I did get a jump the other day and let it run for 50 mins with a little run up and down the cul de sac (couldn't go further)... But 48 hours later it wouldn't start. Probably should've gone back before 24 hours.

Spotted this but not sure if quality. It's a lot cheaper than this deal and there is also a 1000A unit for just under £50.

Putting into perspective, I stumped up £110 for a new car battery from RAC last night because the car hadnt been drive enough over the last 6 weeks. Arguably this would have saved me, although a new battery would've still been needed at some point.

Despatched from AND Sold by Amazon, I've never seen that before on a product like this.

I bought one from Lidl before for the 3 year warranty and promptly lost the receipt, it still works after 2 years but only ever started smaller petrol engines, wouldn't do a 2.2 diesel. This should have no trouble.

Battery too old or no battery charger? Yes, my newish battery could start a car standing for over 2 to 3 months. I've taken out a battery to charge or using extension lead when car is near is near the garage door. As said a powerbank is useful when you need the car like NOW.
Looked at buying the noco while back but when one review said the battery had swollen that put me off. This isn't the first powerbank/starter that's been on this site, can't believe nobody has bought one and give a recommendation.

That's the thing, when the battery gets to that point, you end up getting a new one anyway.

I would still say these are a god send.

From what I can see, they seem to be decently priced for what they are, and I always overspec, so that I won't be disappointed.
This is the one a car dealer used when i went to test drive, must be ok if they are using them
I bought a Tacklife T8 800A Lithium-ion from Amazon 18 months ago, not on Amazon anymore but it is brilliant. Cost me £65.99, worth a google.

Had one of these for a while, works really well and holds its charge for quite a while (e.g. keep in the boot, check after 4 months and still has a good amount of charge left).

Big thing for us was the reliability.

You want it to work when you need it.

And it's noddy proof as the tech means you can't really get it wrong (leads wrong way around, etc).

I'll check it out thanks. Problem is I had two Arteck ones via Amazon similar to this and they did nothing, I had to get a refund and they're just used as power banks now.

I used a genius BOOST HD last year, 15700 Joules.

This one looks incredibly similar, only its a NOCO BOOST HD.

Both are 12v / 2000amp

Are they the same or similar?

Whats the difference?

Not sure if I should buy the Amazon one or not!

Please help

Thanks!

Bought one of these a few years back when it was on amazon deals, tried to jump a Mercedes van 3ltr diesel from memory, didn’t touch it and the booster was 100% charged, didn’t use it for a year or two then the wife’s 2.2 diesel FL2 battery became flat so out it came again but again didn’t touch it, third time lucky on my 2.7diesel D3, you have guessed it, it didn’t touch it and the batteries on both Landrover’s were not that flat, only good comments I have are the torch is good and it has two USB ports.

no whether it had a problem with it from the start I don’t know but at £90 ish it was not worth it IMO, I was really hoping it would be a good investment but nope and I’m sceptical about purchasing another power bank, would have sent it back but it was in my Landrover when my landrover was stolen.

Some of these jumpers have a boost start mood where a button needs to be pressed to give the unit an extra starting boost, normally when the battery is completely flat. I personally have this and it's been really good even starting a range rover but unfortunately not currently available amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

I believe it’s effectively the same one. Seems they have made some small updates, perhaps the most useful being a slimmer (but still beefy) croc clip to get on the car battery terminal. This one is the lowest in their range where the (relativy large csa) cables go direct into the unit ie not via some plug which must limit performance. IMHO this makes it more of a jump starter first and not a powerbank. The problem is there are many other cheaper alternatives out there and even they make lower specification models. So much noise to try and make an informed decision

Thank you for the reply. Its actually not for me, but my cousin. He has a Mercedes e220d and every year upon his return from holiday, his car struggles to start (taxi cab/radio equipment drain the battery). Last year we tried so many different ways and used several devices to start his car. The ONLY thing that worked is the device in the picture. So I've been looking out for the price to drop for a while, that's why I asked if it was the same. I agree - the differences may only be cosmetic, but if it works the same, this device is actually very successful, despite the reviews or comments on here.

Thanks again.

I ordered last night and it arrived tonight. It is same as posted in picture and has 'Genius' on it!
Did anyone end up going with this or is it overpriced? I've got a VW T5 1.9 van and wonder what I'd need to get that started?

I looked at one of the cheap chinese ones on Amazon and someone had posted a picture of it starting a fire in their living room so that put me off the cheapos a bit.

I saw that one too but couldn't remember which one to confirm a possibility as in, some of these type of units don't have a wall charger and you know how volatile cheap chargers can be. The literature bundled with those units doesn't make it all that clear what specs of charger is required.

True that, which one did you end up buying?

autown 2000A and no charger. emailed them, rec a 5v/2.1a charger, had a hudl one lying around was using usb 3 in tower. I know 2.1a is considered quick charging, waiting for an answer to quick charge 3, literature says it outputs but nothing about receiving into it.
