Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

OP as an emergency device they work very well. and it is extra good if it has an inverter as you could use it to charge the cell phone also.

It is not a substitute for a defective battery.

This. If you feel that your battery might be getting weaker, just replace it. Although having a booster is handy, too.

I guarantee this will start anything you need to start. Its a beast in every way.

My last job I had to use one of these all the time. Thing lasted for years. It would even start an old 310B back hoe that had two huge 6 volts wired for 12 volts.

and they make this smaller one that should work just find for our trucks.

We use the boosterpac 2500 at work to start dead vehicles. It starts everything that comes into the shop with a dead battery. I just bought the boosterpac 5000 for personal use from Napa auto parts

A tip........

Most major auto parts and battery dealers will test your battery and charging system for free, but the battery needs to be externally charged before the test to achieve a more accurate measurement of it's health. A healthy battery, charging system and starter are co-dependent on each other. Terminal corrosion is one of the most common causes of starting problems.

Nice. I use those for my last job. They are a great brand for just a straight up battery jumper. They worked great for years with weekly use.

If you ever need a beast of a one that will start anything check out the Truck PAC ES6000. I used to use that one to start an old John Deere 310B. It had two huge 6 volts.
