For a lot of families, the holiday season means a lot of travel. While some people fly, others will be cooped up in a vehicle for hours on end. The only thing that can make these long drives even worse is car troubles. These troubles can unfortunately happen in any weather and at any time, and can be hard to predict. To prevent these issues from arising, you should consider picking up a portable car jump starter.
No Need For Help
There are few things worse than your car not starting. Everyone has gone through it and all we can do is hope someone is close enough by who can give us a boost. However, owning one of these jump starters will ensure you do not need the assistance of anyone else to jump start your car. Simply attach the jump starter to your car battery and then start your car, it’s as easy as that.
They Are Easy to Move and Can Be Used Anywhere.
While some portable car jump starters or batteries need to be plugged in to work, others will be completely portable, and these are generally a better option. They are often quite light and can be easily moved from place to place without much effort. Of course, if you use a wireless/portable model, you should ensure that you continue to keep it fully charged or else you may be in for a rude awakening when you try and use it.
Affordable For Their Value
Not only can these jump starters be a lifesaver on the road and can potentially save you from having to spend money on a tow, they are also relatively affordable to purchase as well. You can find a high quality portable car jump starter for under $70 and it has the potential to be one of the best investments you’ve ever made.
Some Car Jump Starters Can Even Charge Your Car’s Battery
Sometimes your car battery is fully dead and needs a boost, but other times, you just need a little charge, and thankfully, many portable car jump starters can help with that too. While every jump starter cannot do this, many of the different options on the market are also able to slowly trickle charge your car battery in addition to being able to start it up with ease. However, many of these ‘trickle chargers’ are not portable (which means our RAVPower Car Jump Starter series does not have this capability).
Why Portable Car Jump Starters Are Better Than The Rest
Picking up a portable car jump starter one of the best options to ensure your car always stays on the road and alive. Sure, jumper cables can work; they are by no means as good an option. In addition to needing someone in another car to help you, you also need your car to be parked in a certain way and jumper cables have the potential to damage both your car and the hosts. With how affordable and available many portable jump starters are, you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not having one with you on long drives.
How To Store Your Portable Car Jump Starter
When it comes to storing your portable car jump starter, you should look to keep it in your in your car (or you can leave it in your garage and pray for a miracle to save you). Cold and harsh weather (or weather that is too hot) can damage the charger over time so you should keep it in moderate temperature, if at all possible. It is a good idea to also ensure it is kept charged up, as well, as it would be a real shame if you tried to start a dead battery with a dead car jump starter.

I purchased the RAvPOWER 65-02000-038 and thought I would get a hard storage case, but instead I received a cloth bag.
How can I obtain the hard case?

A number of reasons are there that make your car battery flat and don’t allow it to supply the necessary power that is highly indispensable for starting the engine. This is a kind of inconvenience which can happen anywhere and anytime. Thus, you need to be prepared for this eventuality so that you can remain safe at the time of a battery failure. Keeping jump starter in the vehicle is I think the best precaution that you may take for giving the necessary boost to the engine of your speed machine when the battery gets malfunctioned. I would suggest that, apart from taking care of your car battery, you should keep the best portable jump starter in your car to avoid the possibility of being grounded, especially when the battery stops working.
We agree Andrew. It’s a must.
Very well written. You have covered almost all the point. Every car owner must have portable jump starter in their cars, especially if they are living in cold area.
I have purchased RAVPower 14000mAh Car Jump Starter from Souq.com, and when i connect it to the car, the LED beside the boost button is not liting (neither red nor green). But all USBs are working when tried to charge a mobile. May i know what could be the reason? Is this the product issue?
Quite possibly a product issue. Please contact souq.com.
Thank you for wonderful post.
Jump Starters are neccessary as these devices operate similar to jumper cables but do not require an additional vehicle to provide the power needed to boost the dead vehicle battery.
Thank you. Seems like you know the difference between the two. Thanks for reading!
Question: Are there portable car battery jumpers that you keep in your car and you can plug them into a AC unit in the car so you don’t have to take the jumper out every 30 days to charge it?
Or is it necessary to always take the jump starter out of your car after a certain number of days to charge it?
Hi, please email us at email@example.com
Great produce, bailed me out several times now. Can i leave the charger plugged in to the car while I drive or should I unplug it after it’s charged.?
Hi, yes you can leave it plugged in while driving.
Hi, I purchased an 8000mah car jump starter today. It has been plugged in for 3 hours with no sign of life at all. No lights. I plugged in car charger cables and unit beeped a few times. Can you tell me what might be wrong please?
Hi, our support team will be happy to help. Could you please send them an email firstname.lastname@example.org
so these seem to catch fire in cars stored in hot weather. is there one safe to use in cars in hot climates, the very same climates that are tough on battery life?
Hi there, we don’t recommend using our car jump starters in climates over 40℃.
