Default 12 volt jumper starter (small) Which one is best?

I saw a thread a couple months ago on these but searched and searched and could not find it. Looking for a small compact one with charging and at least 650 amps if not more. Thanks

It's not a 12v/rechargeable unit but this thing has been awesome for me on tractors, trucks, RV batteries. Mainly a battery charger but has a jump start feature.

Maybe you can hook it up to the Astros for a jump start.

They can use it.

Yep. But not powerful enough for the Texans.

most auto parts stores carry them, they are around 90-100 dollars.

Never had an issue with using the portable jumper packs from WeeGo and Matco. Of course theres a huge price gap there but both worked as intended with no issues

I suggest going to Amazon and see what gets good reviews. That is what I am going to do when I buy mine.

I have this one and have been very happy with it. Works great to jump cars and very useful for charging all kinds of things. Very small so I keep it under my back seat.

Those amazon jumpers with the 12v sla batteries are junk (if you leave them in your car in the heat - ask me how I know) imho. Replaced mine with a second battery and it still took a chit. I'm waiting for a lithium battery one.

I just use the old old fashion jumper cables - works each and every time.

I've seen this one at work first hand. My buddy had one with us on his boat when the battery died. Cranked it right up on several occasions.

Bought one and carry it with me all the time.
