The biggest difference between a regular, high quality jump starter and jump starter pack is that the pack is small enough to always be in your car, and yet smart enough that it will always have a full charge. So keeping these 2 very important traits in mind, we take a look at what we think is the best in this area, the Bolt Power® G06C. It is a relatively strong jump starter with a 600 amps peak rating but with a full charge of 16,500 mAh. That means you can hook it up to any engine that does not develop more than 100 horsepower, and it will be strong enough to get that car started at once. However, if you own a bigger car or truck, particularly a diesel, you will need to hook up the Bolt Power® G06C, leave it for about 10 minutes so it will transfer some of the power in its massive battery to your car’s battery, and then, together, they will be able to turn even the biggest engine over.
The real challenge with any jump starter is that most people tend to put it in the back of the car or truck, and forget that it is even there for the next couple of years until the moment comes when they really need that charger. And that is why we believe the Bolt Power® G06C is the best emergency jump starter on the market today. It is small enough, and has all the necessary ports, that you can connect any type of laptop, iPad or iPhone straight to its power bank. Add that to the fact that it is very compact and light, and you have a battery pack that you are going to use at least a couple of times a year, when you go on camping trips. The beauty of that type of usage is that, on the one hand, a battery used, fairs much better over time than one that you just charge and forget about it. On the other hand, because it is so versatile, you will not forget that you have it, and you will remember to keep it charged.
Like most other high quality jump starters on the market, the Bolt Power® G06C also has its own air compressor, and it has enough of a charge that it can fill all 4 of your tires from flat. It is an excellent choice not only for car owners but also for bikers, the motorized one, and the regular old school types, ATV riders, and it is a definite must on any boat or in the garage of any jet sky owner. Basically, the Bolt Power® G06C was designed to be useful to anyone working or owning any type of engine that may require an outside energy source to start. And, to give you an idea of the faith the manufacturer is placing in the quality of their product, they are giving a year warranty on peak and bolt power. That means from the moment you buy it, you can just put it in the trunk of the car, and, if after a year of not using it, you come to find that it has lost its charge, they will replace it for. Given how fragile battery life is in most of these devices, that is a very bold promise to make.
