Anything with a battery is likely to need a jump start at some stage but gone are the days of heavy, large jump starters that were really a battery on a trolley.
Today HPP Lunds has an easy-touse jump starter that will solve flat battery problems for cars, light trucks, boats, 4WDs and motorcycles – it’s the GearX Portable Jump Starter.
This compact and powerful unit that incorporates quick charging has a standby that will last up to 12 months as it has a power lock that reduces self-consumption so you can put it aside and know it will be ready when you are.
Compared with older style jump starters this unit takes up minimal room in the garage cupboard or workshop shelf, and if you need to grab it to get a customer out of trouble by the side of the road it’s light and easy to transport.
This product is for use with 12V batteries and here’s the simple steps to jump start using this unit:
There is also a force start function for vehicles not responding to the recommended starting sequence.
Re-charging the jump starter is even easier. You connect it to a power source via the included USB C cable (or the alternate cigarette lighter adapter) and press the on/ off button, it recharges at 20000MAH so it will recharge quickly. Once recharged the LCD display will show 100 per cent.
The GearX Jump Starter pack comes with the jump starter, a smart battery clamp, an EC5 cigarette lighter adapter, a USB-C charger cable, a carry bag and a detailed user manual which includes a trouble shooting section.
