Battery Booster

Was wondering how many people travel with a battery booster in their car. I just bought lately a Blitz Wolf, it's small and compact yet delivers up to 400 amp for a short burst. It also has 2 USB charging ports if your cell phone ever goes dead. Better than does bulky heavy Canadian tire Eliminator booster at twice the price. This one has a lithium ion battery. It works great, I used it on my sisters Matrix and was a little sceptical at first because of the size but it started right up. As you can see in the picture it has a thermal breaker on the positive lead if you should happen to short the output.



It also has a built in flash light.



This is a very thought out product for $67 USd.

It comes neatly packaged...

I don't have one, but I will be buying one. I've been talking about getting one. My neighbor has one he bought for $100 or so and he can jump I think 6 cars without needing a charge

They do seem like a good investment although I've only had to be boosted once in 10 years.

My sister was at a conference at Howard Johnson just down the road, she was already running late and all stressed out when she called me. I'm 2 kms away so hopped in the Mitsubishi and off to see her I went. She was so stressed out she didn't even say thank you which is not like her at all, she later called me and apologized but I wasn't at all upset by it because I used to work and understand the pressure upper management and kids puts on parents. That my friend to me was worth the $88 even if I never have to use it again.

You know how today's car electronics is fragile, one spark while boosting and you can fry your ECM, now when somebody ask me for a boost I don't have to compromise my car's electronics to give somebody a boost I just pull the Blitz Wolf out of the glove box and away they go. Before I always had to refuse boosting because of the possible outcome.

All you need for a car, don't think it would boost a Duramax at minus 30 but.......

My old duramax has two batteries. I think they were like 800cca each.
