Keep A Jump Starter In Your Vehicle

Reasons To Keep A Jump Starter In Your Vehicle

When your semi-tractor or personal vehicle needs a jumpstart, the first thing that probably comes to mind is connecting two cars using a long set of alligator clips.

While this is still the most common way to get an engine running after a battery has been depleted, it is not the only way. We live in the future and we have battery powered portable jumpstarters like the Battery Tender® Portable Power Pack, 480CA Lithium Jump Starter or the 1200A Jump Starter. These devices make it easy to give yourself a boost.


Your friend meets you in a lonely parking lot. Alligator clips, like an umbilical cord, connect both of your vehicles. You start your engine and nothing happens. Your friend starts their engine and nothing happens either. However, something terrible has happened. Twice as many people are now stranded in parking lot gloom.

How bad would you feel if your friend came to give you a boost and it somehow damaged their car? No good deed goes unpunished. You never have to connect your friend’s car to yours, so there’s no risk that you’ll ruin their battery.


You want to be a good citizen, support local businesses, keep people employed, etc. Keeping the local tow truck guy gainfully employed is not your responsibility. Your local tow truck driver is part of an industry that’s worth close to 6 billion dollars per year* in the US. There are plenty of other people that they can help. They’ll be fine so you don’t need to worry about them.

Waiting for someone to give you a boost is a waste of time for everyone involved. The person coming to help you has to drive out and you have to wait for them. Then you both stand there while trying to hook your two batteries together and hope you don’t shoot sparks into an eyeball. After all of that, your friend still has to drive home. Having a portable jump pack doesn’t just save you time, it’s proof that you are a considerate friend.


Benjamin Franklin once said that “nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” In the age of cellphones and technology, another certainty has emerged. Cellphone will always have 4% battery power when you need them most. A good reason to keep a power pack jump starter in your car is that most will have a USB port on them that you can use to charge your phone. You can also use it to charge a tablet and anything else that gets it’s charge through a USB chord.


Connect your portable jump starter, start your car, disconnect the jump starter, and then leave. Don’t wait for someone to save you, take care of it yourself and leave. Not being there is the best way to stay safe.
