It doesn’t matter if your car is brand new or 25 years old — if something goes wrong, your battery can die and leave you stranded. It seems like no one carries jumper cables anymore, and waiting for AAA or a tow truck just adds to the frustration. Here’s another option: Grab a PowerGo “Unbelievably Portable” 12 Volt Car Battery Jump Starter Booster and Power Bank at a discount right now on Amazon, and you’ll be able to jump your car yourself.
The PowerGo “Unbelievably Portable” Jump Starter is very simple. It’s basically just a portable battery with a pair of jumper cables that plug into it, so you can connect directly to your car battery instead of having to connect two cars together. It also packs 13,600 mAh of juice, which is enough power to jump your car up to eight times before needing to be recharged.
And as an added bonus, it includes charging ports and cables so you can charge your smartphone or laptop in a pinch.
