Does this lie and say you need a new battery?

Its just a poor quality battery in a case with some substandard leads/clamps and its been down to £27 back in April/May. Just buy a 20ah agm high discharge rated battery and good set of jump leads. You can keep it topped up off the cigar socket.

Cheaper in Ann Summers under fetishes £19.99 and are fluffy fur lined.

The only things these can start is the Amazon returns process. I had one and it was garbage.

Any links?

The rac man told me I need a new £150 battery from them last year when I needed a jump start when I already have battery with 4year warranty . They always lie about batteries to sell their own.

This is the type of high rate discharge battery required for starting electroquestuk.com/mot…680
Our company buys these type batteries for around £27 wholesale. But they MUST BE high rate and NOT the same looking ones used in golf carts and mobility scooters!
MK batteries also do a good one but I forget the model at the minute (may be ES20-12FR HR?)
As mentioned in the first link these are good equivalents to the Odyssey pc680 range but at less cost.

It's quite common as they get good commission off these but there are the honest ones out there as well.

These cheap jump starter packs haven't got enough power to start a 3 cylinder 1 litre Vauxhall Corsa, don't waste your money.
