ALLPOWERS Solar Car Jump Starter and Portable Charger Power Bank
Just got one of these and decided to test it out today. I disconnected the + lead from my car's battery and connected this pack to ground and the + wire, so that it was the only thing providing power to the car. The car turned over and fired right up. Shut it off and restarted it 4 times without any trouble, and the jump starter still had more than 75% charge.
My car is a 2011 Mazda MX-5 GT with a 2.0L engine. Not the hardest car to turn over, but more than a typical econo-box due to its higher compression engine. Also note that the car had been outside in sub-freezing temps all night and was ice cold when I tested it.
I'm really impressed at how lightweight this thing is. It doesn't weigh much more than my smartphone (Galaxy Note-4 in a thin OEM case). It's also narrower and much shorter than the phone, and only about twice as thick. Construction seems high quality as well. No rattles...
I use this to jump start a 250cc scooter and for that it works pretty well. I have not used on anything bigger. Unfortunately I relied on it being able to give me power thru the USB to charge my phone at it did not function. I have several other means to do this task so I'm not bothering to return.
I have project vehicles and bought this to jump a few cars and it worked great as advertised. The bonus is it will charge your devices, has a flashlight that will also function as a flashing light, a solar panel for emergency charging, and it has little led lights on the side that tell you the charge level in the battery. I bought two more as holiday gifts and my friends love them. One of my friends uses it on trips to keep his devices charged while watching in-flight movies. It is smaller than a thin paperback book.
