Portable Power

Post by milspec6 on Mon Jan 25, 2016 7:57 pm

This device seems too good to be true....anyone using one?  For the money, it seems like a must have for a cleaning van.  Just curious if it lives up to the claims.  It even jumped a Semi with a discharged battery!

The way I see it, you would have a small device the size of a brick that can power up your phone, laptop, gps, and even jump your TM or even the van.

Now that is a versatility.

That's it, I'm ordering one.

I can think of at least 3 occasions in the last 4 months where I could have used such a device. I don't want to run into the 4th kicking myself for not buying one.

There are 2 sizes for 12v batteries. The one that is rated for about a 5.7 liter V8 is around $90 on ebay. The larger one rated for 6.2 liters runs around $150.

I think the smaller one would be fine for our purposes and costs no more than a jump start box.

I just went out and purchased a new wheeled battery charger with jump start (CAT 40 amp), but having this little power brick on the truck would sure be comforting when cleaning at night in winter weather.

That's cheap !! I thought they would cost more than that !
I have jumper cables on all my vans, but it's all about convenience.

I have cables and the battery for the w3500 sits right underneath where the TM battery is, sometimes I forget to turn the key off on the TNT when it shuts off from a full recovery tank at the end of the day

then next day its dead
