Power Bank that can start a car

A very good morning to all my fellow Carnity Enthusiasts. I wanted to share this simple but useful device which I had bought recently from Dragon Mart, a bit expensive, but totally worth it.

This is a power bank which can easily fit in the palm of your hand and includes all wires to connect and charge your mobile phones, laptops and more importantly start up your dead car battery. It is a bout 12000 MAH power bank that can easily start up your dead car, I have tried it twice with 2 dead cars and it works like a dream, no need to keep it charging for long. Just connect, switch it to 12Volts (it has a switch 3V, 6V and 12V for different applications), and start up your car. It sends a strong charge to the car battery and just starts it up. If fully charged it still has enough juice to charge your 3000 MAH battery completely. Forgot to mention it has a torch also, not so powerful, but useful to eliminate dark spots. Awesome device.

This is what it looks like, I like the case also, very handy and useful.

Thanks for this great advice, I also got one Anker PowerCore Jump Starter 600 after reading your advise and also got a chance to put it to test few days back when car left on with TV, DVD and headlight at pitstop.

Only thing I like to add here for other car enthusiast's that while recharging the battery, one must remove the jumper cable as soon car starts, or else cable will melt the charger cable and slowly it will stop working. This is the advice given to me from one of the shop who was selling other non branded product (not Anker). I researched on this point and it's quiet validated as unlike conventional jumper cable plug to other car who actually charges the drained battery faster, but in this case it will push the battery pack to charge rather than car battery and also push more AMP through the cable and increase their chance of failure after few jump starts.

So once car starts, remove the jump starter cable IMMEDIATELY.

I also bought a Jump Start power bank last year. Brand is Promate.

Thanks for the important point you mentioned, Gaurav

My Anker powercore died in less than a year time with swollen battery sitting in trunk. Used to charge once in 3 months and after 3 attempts spotted a swollen battery and not charging anything anymore.

Similar experience with me, I had the BBS brand who started this trend and after about 3 tries it died also, the old fashioned jumper cables are still the best, if recovery service is not at hand.

I have seen a nice one with the recovery team, saw it at Dragon Mart but way too expensive. Since we do not charge and use it on regular basis no guarantee how long it would work.

It may have happened due to heat. I usually keep at home when a battery is new. When I first feel engine start little dragging when switch on, then I start carrying the power bank in the vehicle. So, it is still saved.

Sad about what happened to your power bank.

@Melvin Martin. Already mentioned my dilemma.

Then it's a shame to design such a product that cannot withstand heat, as the main purpose of this device is to start your car when the main battery fails. Totally pointless to spend 400 dhs for this rather than old fashioned jumper cable for 50 dhs as Rahimdad mentioned.
