We have an old Jeep that’s kind of a back-up car. Problem is, even though the battery itself is healthy, there’s some small drain on it, such that if we don’t use the car for a couple weeks, it won’t start. Usually that means pulling out the jumper cables, and maneuvering one of our other cars around to set up a jump. But I saw something on Amazon that I just had to try. The GOOLOO 700A Peak Car Jump Starter is actually a very handy little gadget. Basically, it’s an 18,000 mAh rechargeable battery pack, just like you may have in your everyday carry tech bag to re-juice your gadgets. But it also has the circuity needed to deliver part of that charge as a high-amp jump that a car can use to turnover and start. This makes it a perfect safety device to carry in the trunk (it has an extra bright LED as well). I used ours this morning, and it worked like a charm. It comes with both the jumper cables needed for your car, and USB cables for charging devices. Check it out for just $70!
