  • battery jump starters.

    With so many jump starters on the market (Lithium) I would like to get a general consensus of the members as to what they use to boost dead car batteries. I do have a combo battery booster/charger from 1975 in the garage but that thing is a monster and a PITA to get to.
    Most of the reviews of the NOCO GB-40 are not too good........and I was told that is a top brand. Which is why is seek a consensus of the members.
    Thanks in advance!

    My Anti Gravity XP-1 has been amazing for 3 years; only issue is I have an early model with inferior clamps.
    Can't say I've started a totally dead battery; all rescues have had some battery function.
    These things are amazing.

      I never have dead battery issues anymore, unless the battery has simply been in place for too many decades.
      Each of my cars are hooked to a Deltrans 1.25A Battery Tender Junior. They are available in either 6-volt or 12-volt. Regardless of how long the car sits it keeps the battery right where it needs to be. The Deltrans also recognizes power outages and turns itself back on when required.
      I went too many years without one of these marvelous little devices.

        I have used the "Viking " compact power pack , from Harbor Freight to start several vehicles .
        In particular , a totally dead battery in a 318 dodge pickup of mine , started with no difficulty at all .
        2 other trucks , and a welding generator with a dead battery , also were started with it on separate occasions .
        On my race car , I use the Battery Tender , as noted above for long term maintenance .
