  • can you compare car battery chargers ? and/or ones that claim to fix your battery, i mean you discharge the car battery too much just once and it's trash now ?

  • Once again I offer my profound thanks & another "WELL DONE ! ". I watch a lot of technical..WAIT ! Quasi technical tests of various devices & I cringe at the inherent measurement errors & descriptions of the devices & processes that do nothing except exhibit the ignorance of the person making the video. Some are people attempting to aid folks in making a purchase decision & they are simply passing along misinformation. Many are simply charlatans. Some have English that is so removed from accepted diction, grammar & syntax that I find it offensive. Those who liberally inject crude obscenities & profanity as descriptors, move me to move on to another site. I know of no other person who excels your technical excellence & descriptions, nor your your unique & apt commentary, based solely on demonstrated performance, always with the caveat that this is your opinion. Bravo ! Sir, Bravo ! You are an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity ! Thank you again.

  • Good one about 35 years ago Interstate made almost all the Batteries it seems to be the norm that only one company builds all the brands in the United States my old Company had a Commercial Account with our local Interstate dealer and Wow did we get a discount off of list the Commpany was a Boat and Yacht maintenance company in Florida and we did buy a lot of Batteries from them Sears had a pretty good marketing strategy at the time with their Diehard brand and we had literature to show the clients that Interstate made the Diehard

  • VERY nice review- the only thing I'd like covered is the boost/bypass/override button for each unit. On the first one you used it to apply power - as some smart cables will not provide a jump if the "smart" cables are connected to a completely dead battery. I have a completely dead battery and a Suaoki jump starter. My unit has smart cables but no boost/override function so despite having a jump start unit I couldn't get it to help start my car - I ended up having to solder in a bypass cable.

  • Nice Ford tractor!! Hold onto it! We had a few from the 1930s and 1970s. They were great, but we ended up going to Kubota in the 80s/90s...no complaints, but the Fords never had any issues we didn't create from negligence and abuse. Idea for you, is trickle chargers. I have some equipment and vehicles, and end up using 12-15 maintenance chargers every year. The ones that seem to last for years and do a great job are are Battery Tender and Schumacher. For some reason Black & Decker never make a single season. Bought 1/2 a dozen and all of them died. I have tried Motopower, as a cheaper charger, and they maintain well, but only last about 1-2 seasons. I would only be guessing how to do accelerated durability on a charger. Accelerated cycles through a resistor bank? Vibration...and drop testing???...based on how many times I end up fumbling mine to the ground?..;-0

  • Ok, so I did some analysis on the Audew jump starter and the NOCO GB40 jump starter based on Amazon critical reviews vs total reviews. The NOCO GB40 had a critical review rate of about 5%. The Audew had a much higher critical review rate of 15%. I bought my NOCO GB40 (original style) 2 years ago. It still charges and still sometimes starts a car, so until I find more definitive proof of the quality and longevity of the Audew jump starter, I'm going to just keep using the one I have.

    Joseph RootJoseph Root6 gün önce
  • I purchased the NOCO GB40 when it was on a lightning deal for $80. It always seemed to be flaky to me. It works sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. When I need to jump a car, the battery is usually very flat and I use the safety override button. Again, sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not. I'm going to look into replacing it with the Audew from this review. BTW, what is with the super short cables? NOCO got smart and offered extension cables, but they changed the plug and it isn't compatible with the GB40. I've failed to jump a car before because the jump contact points were too far away for the cable length. Great review, thank you!

  • Great video, Thank You! What is the best way to keep these Jump Starters last in performance? What I mean is since these batteries are mostly stored until emergency, during the storage period should we recharge these batteries every so often back to 100% Full, or should we find a way to use/drain the battery power to certain percentage (0%, 25%, 50% 75%) before recharge to Full and ultimately when we recharge the batteries should we always leave the batteries on their charges for a full 6-8 hours or only as soon reached to 100%? Thanks Again!

  • My car has a 55AH lead acid battery. It's got carry handles it's so HEAVY. My 1200cc BMW motorbike had a 14AH high spec all singing and dancing lead acid that weighed 10 pounds. I fitted a 4AH LiFePO4 battery to the bike. It weighed 2 pounds and was physically 1/4 of the volume. Yet it turned the engine faster than the lead acid. I put it on the car. Not only did it start the car easily, it also had no problem handling the load of the electric power steering AND the rear window heater. That particular power steering is especially fussy with low system volts. But no problems at all. HOWEVER, LiFePO4 struggles below 5 degrees C (40F approx). It needs a couple of failed starts to warm the battery core. It then works fine, BUT the car's clocks will have reset and some car electronics get uppity when volts go too low. The solution would be a built in heater core within the battery. In cold weather hit heat before turning the starter.

    • David Elliott: This is quite common. You can get an atv/snowmobile battery blanket, it's not much different than an electric heat mat used to start garden plants indoors. Most motorcycle and atv batteries range around 12Ah including AGM types. The difference with li-po or li-ion is the flow rate and the carrier voltage and yes some vehicles including snowmobile like Yamaha brand which use motorcycle engines btw need a sustained 13.7vDC to get all the injectors and electronics working so a standard 12.8vDC batery will often not do the job and the odd thing about all this is that you can get a standard 9v alkaline battery and hook it up to the snowmobile battery and the engine will start. It's truly an idiotic concept to not have any kind of capacitance in the vehicles ignition systems. There is an "ecoearth" brand li-po battery that does have and internal maintaining circuit you mentioned. it is however between 400 and 600$. I can confirm that it works but it's not a work machine battery. The best battery booster aka jump starter is the Schumacher (aka Seally) 1200s hybrid jump starter. It has capacitance, isolated li-ion battery with maintainer, and can pull a charge off another 12vDC power source into it's capacitors. You can also use it as a temporary car battery and it actually works at -40c. It's also close to 1000$.
