    Tldr;
    This thing sucks and is not available on Amazon(at the time of edit) and I'm returning it.


    I picked this up on Amazon prime day 2020 based on review from ProjectFarm on youtube. I charged it fully when I received it and threw it in my truck.

    What are your thoughts of it?


    Scenario:

    Wanted to mulch up some leaves, lawnmower has a history of needing Jumpstarting, weak charging system but the battery wasn't flat. When I pulled it out of my truck it read 100% and immediately dropped to 93% as I was unpacking it. Cranked the mower and it wasn't firing. After about 1min the jump pack is at 0% and beeping.. If it won't start this lawnmower I wouldn't trust it to start my truck..

    Discharge:
    Discharging with an adjustable Resistive load on the USB port





    Recharge:
    Charging from fully discharged to fully charged to see if it holds charge better for next time.

    Uhm.. I just took it inside, plugged it in with the supplied charger/cable and it reads 87%

    They are nice my friend, but NOCO for the win brother. At least now others won't buy this junk.

    Not a definitive review just first observations. I'll keep them both in my truck just in case.

    This is the difference between Noco Chineseium and no-name Chineseium products - the later is less consistent in quality and has effectively no warranty support. Amazon reviews show 5% of these "Audew"booster packs are garbage. Yours is probably one of the 5%.

    This device (similar brands too) never needs to be plugged in to AC. You just hook up the device to your battery if it isn't totally dead and wait for the CAPS to charge up, when the indicators say so you're then able to start the vehicle. No need to worry if the device has enough of a charge because it gets charged from your vehicle's battery. Some food for thought! :hattip:

    If you read through the Amazon reviews, the NOCO's have just as high of a failure rate as the "China" brands. These things are all hit or miss.

    And it's at 100% already after maybe 30mins.. I'm going to put a usb load on it to draw it down and recharge it again.

    I picked one up on Prime Day as well. I'm interested to see what others think about this as well.

    I haven't needed to use it yet, its just sitting in my truck. I'm hoping I didn't get one of those in the 5%...

    I picked a couple up 3/4 months ago now. Pulled it out just this week to check if it was charged and still at fully charged.

    Haven’t had the chance to use it yet but have seen two people I have offered help to didn’t need it but I still have faith in it.

    100% 5:56pm to 0% 11:37pm with a 2amp load. Looks like once it hits 15% it shuts off, possibly. I restarted with 1.5amp load for the remaining capacity. It's plugged back in to recharge overnight.

    With a 2A load for about 21 minutes when voltage starts to drop off, your graph shows about 700mA-hours capacity at 2A with a 5V output, thats not much something isn’t right ...

    Me as well lol bought the audew on prime day since it failed to turn over the neighbors diesel at all even though it "technically" met the displacement limits.

    Will update in this thread when I try the audew
