had a few of these in the past, work ok for a while then either the battery dies or the compressor burns out, only have 9amp hr motorcycle batteries onboard, which is pretty weedy, the chances are when you need it, it's flat or dying! I'd like to offer an alternative for the money, but I can't... now I just use a small car battery kept on a smart charger and a pair of decent jump leads and a 12v ring air compressor I've have for 25yrs!

Have to agree, battery is a bit naff in these and you have to stay on top of its charge otherwise they die might be lucky to jump a 1.0 litre car but not much else

With the car doing short journeys now had to use the similar £12 carpoint listed here while back, just about got it started, gauge was still on green but a while since being charged. As said you do have to keep it constantly topped up as with car battery.

Any good experiences with the powerbanks listed here on hotdeals.
as others the battery is a bit naff on these. It has no power and being lead acid you need to keep it topped up, the slightest drain and you end up with a dead cell in no time.
Concour with above had one of these and the battery is too underpowered to be of much use. Bit of a waste of money to be honest.
Avoid these all they are generally good for is maybe tyre inflating not jump starting a car. It may do a small car but the battery in it is not a high CCA type battery it’s a high cyclic charge battery which is good for run time only does not supply enough cranking amps. You are better off with a lithium jump starter for that for a similar price. If you want a tyre inflator though go for it
What makes me laugh is the people who at the 1st sign of a failing battery, continue to 'hope' that their car starts, espec' in winter, even after jumping off, or being jumped off, they still 'hope' that the battery will get better no sympathy..

If the battery's not that old then charging it would keep it going. Short journeys drain the battery and devices connected up through lighter socket even faster, not using the radio, electric windows for a bit does give the battery a chance to top itself up after going flat.
Anyone know of a decent battery charger for my 2.0 diesel Ford Kuga It’s a minefield there’s that many Any help greatly appreciated

For the small power bank types:
I have one from a couple of years ago. Has never let me down yet!
These jump start packs are notdesiged for you to attach and then immediately try to start your engine - their internal SLA batteries can't deliver the huge amount of current needed in one hit. What you're supposed to do is connect it up then wait 10-15mins before trying to start (leaving it still attached). You've far more chance of success if you do this.

I mostly used mine as a rechargeable compressor, though as has been said, it's not a particularly robust one and I've had two fail on me before.
