Mechanic Using Battery Jumper Cables to Charge Dead Battery

Car Battery Jump Starter Review

You’ve decided to take the plunge and decided to purchase a Car Battery Jump Starter. But now you’re plagued with so many options you don’t know which one you like.

This article takes a look at 6 Car Battery Jump Starters, and at the end of the article, there is a comparison chart to help you with that decision.

As with all my reviews, I only look at those products that have at least a 4+ star rating.

In my article “Car Battery Jump Starter,” click here to read, I go over some things you want to keep in mind in choosing your jump starter.

What I’ve found also is that Lithium jump starters are not rated in the same way as traditional automotive batteries, so there is no cold-cranking amp number to provide that would be helpful. For that reason, those types of jump starters at times use the size of the engine they can start based on average conditions.  If mAh is given it is provided in the review.

Please also know that ratings can change, as can features, over time, so be sure to click the links to check the ratings before purchasing.
