Jump starters are a portable lithium-ion device which allow discharged or dead batteries to be given a jump start within seconds.
A battery jump starter works by delivering a high charge of amps directly to the battery. The safety feature technology within the jump starter provides reverse polarity protection and spark-proof connections making it easy for anyone to use.
Jump starters can also be used to charge USB devices such as mobile phones, tablets, tyre inflators and power inverters, as they are a portable power source.
Jump starters are mostly used on car batteries either with a petrol engine or diesel engine. They have been primarily designed for use on cars, boats, RV and trucks.
Key features of jump starters include built-in LED lights for jump-starting a car battery in the dark, jumper cables to connect to the engine, and USB sockets.
