  • I would like to see the Halo tested and added to the list. These things work great for lawn mower batteries.

  • I'd love to see a part 2 video, with more brands. One I'd like to see is the Roav Jump Starter Pro by Anker. I love the Anker products I've gotten so far, their quality is awesome, and I'd love to own more xD

  • One problem is you jumped connecting ground to the battery. When jumping you should connect ground to the chassis so as not the charge the battery, while the starter is pulling current. If you still have the units would love to see a re-run in this scenario. Great stuff!!

  • Lithium jump starter test: The capacity ratings for lithium devices are very commonly egregiously exaggerated. Please do an add-on to this video where you put a smaller load...like 5 amps on them. Time how long it takes to run them down til they shut off. Many watt meters will show this information as well. Now you can show actual amp/hours vs advertised amp/hours. I looked up the TOPSTARTER product and in their specs they say it has a LIPO battery. 1. You need 4 cells in series to get to 16v. 2. LIPO 20,000mah high capacity cells are common. 3. 10-15C is a very common discharge rate in 20,000mah LIPO cells. 25C is much less common. 4. High discharge rate LIPO cells...like 65C are somewhat common. High discharge rate LIPO is expensive. 5. High capacity and high discharge rate LIPO is NOT common and very expensive. 6. For less than $100 for any of these lithium units, it is highly unlikely they use high discharge rated, high capacity LIPO cells. 7. My suspicion is these are probably 10C or 15C or maybe 25C cells getting pushed beyond their abilities. 8. How much the jump pack voltages sagged under load confirms this suspicion. Voltage sag is a good indicator of the discharge capability of the cell. 9. 500 amps would need 25C, 20,000mah cells to NOT overly stress the LIPO cells. 10. Probably, all these jump chargers work on 10-25C large capacity LIPO cells. 11. The jump starters that performed poorly are probably using 10C and the top performers 25C cells. LIPO cells can do a few bad things when they get stressed too much: (Get used at too high a discharge rate) 1. They swell up as gasses form inside the foil pouch. Use these jump packs very much for jumping cars and I imagine the cells get very swollen. 2. Push LIPO too hard, they get hot enough to catch fire or at least swell so much they burst their foil pouches. In either case, the jump pack is toast! 3. Over stressed LIPO cells rapidly lose capacity and their internal resistance rises too. 4. Repeatedly stressed LIPO cells die young and short out internally. My expectation is with something like 8-20 jump starts that most or all of these jump packs will be useless or have greatly degraded performance. The C rate of the LIPO cells will significantly determine how many jump starts you get from one of these units. I'd love to take apart a couple of these jump packs to see what was really inside. This would make for a great part 2 add-on video! Look up the cells inside to discover their manufacturer rated capacities and then with actual capacity testing, you get to see just how badly the capacity and discharge rates are exaggerated.

  • I bought a Clure JNC660 1700 Amp 'Jump-N-Carry' five years ago because that's what the AAA fellow had last time I had to call for jump service . I've used it dozens of times, sometimes for multiple jumps between charges. I've never had a lick of trouble with it. It's a big sucker though, built sturdy to last.

  • Good to know that the same audew jump pack that was tested here I also bought earlier this year in May should be a good buy . Have not had to use it much yet, but maybe now want to see for my self how well it will jump our old Ford 7600 farm tractor that we don't use much.

  • I have a Trekpow G22 and it peaks at about 1100 amps for about 4 seconds, staying above 1000 amps before turning off. It goes to 75% after three load tests. I used a HF load tester so accuracy isn't spot on, but the jumper has a lot of juice. $89. After using a jumper battery you have to charge it right away, after it cools and periodically charge it about once every 4 to 6 months.

Starting Nov. 12, 2019 if you purchase the product at the price of $84.99 you need to wait 35-45 days processing time. "As of today 12/10/2019 the price is still at $84.99"

  • I'm unable to find the Audew on Amazon. The manual you showed stated 20,000mAh. The only Audew on Amazon looks different and rated for only 10,800mAh. I have two Noco GB40 and I agree that the cloth bag for this price point is unacceptable. I found it discharged several times before i found a padded case that would fit.

  • Can you teach the news reporters to give unbiased opinion and fact based information? :) Thanks for doing the testing and reporting that you do. There are some items where personal preference (opinion) is also important but you've always mentioned that it is "your" opinion. Wish the news reporters and news media would learn how to do that! I've sent this link off to my uncle who was impressed when a neighbor got his Kawasaki Mule started from such a compact device. I sent this to him so he can see for himself what the differences are and which would fit his needs best. Thanks again.

  • Your results with the harbor Freight one are exactly what I had experienced. I used mine a few times to crank over a motorcycle and it worked okay for that. Any time did you use it it seems to drain down very quickly and often you have to plug it back into the charger to get the thing to reset. I definitely appreciate the testing you did the Audew model seems great. I know you did not like the supercapacitor but one advantage to that is that you don't have to worry about the battery is discharging in your trunk when you're not using it. It also should have almost an indefinite lifespan. whereas the Lithium polymer batteries in a lot of these jump starters have questionable lifespans especially being made in China you don't know the quality of those battery packs. And of course they will inevitably fail when you need them. whereas that capacitor pack while certainly less practical and convenient to use is probably more reliable in the actual emergency. although it only cranks for a very short time so it would only be useful at a situation where you left your lights on and the battery is low but there's nothing actually wrong with the vehicle itself.

  • Thanks for the review. But, Audew's quality control and customer service SUCKS! I purchased two packs. One is defective. They require video proof to return or replace. It takes them two weeks to ask for video then another two weeks to claim they did not get the video. I am not waiting another two weeks to get blown off again and loose my charge back rights. I wish I had ordered through Amazon. The would have been handled a long time ago. At least amazon forces the merchants to be responsible.

  • I’d like to ask where you were able to purchase the Audew jump starter. After watching this video, I went on to the Audew website and ordered the same jump starter as is in this video. I ordered and paid for it on Nov 22. It was supposed to be delivered within a week. Apparently the company who makes this is called ‘Sun Chei’ (or something like that - I don’t have the info in front of me). For the past 2+ weeks, the website indicates that they are ‘processing’ my order. They do not answer any emails, or give any further updates. I understand that the order may have been delayed because of Thanksgiving, but would have liked some feedback from them. I’m wondering if you had the same issue with them, or if you were able to purchase this item through another distributor....????
