A dead car battery can ruin your day or even leave you stranded, but with a booster pack, you can easily get your car back on the road yourself. So how do you know which booster pack is right for you? Don't worry, you got this. A booster pack, also known as a jump starter, is like a portable battery you keep in your vehicle for do-it-yourself boosting. In booster packs, power is usually measured in amps. More power is always better. Most booster packs are quite versatile and have enough power to boost cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and ATVs with gas or diesel engines. Jump starting your vehicle in especially cold weather or from a completely dead battery, will require a more powerful booster pack. Lead acid booster packs use a sealed lead acid battery like your car battery, just smaller. They have a long and proven history of performance and reliability. Not only can they provide instant power for cranking an engine, they can also supply continuous power for running an air compressor or small appliances, for example. These types of booster packs do require some maintenance. Lead acid batteries self-discharge relatively quickly. To ensure your booster pack is ready when you need it, charge it every three months or so. Lithium ion booster packs use a lithium ion battery as their power source. Similar to the one on your cell phone, they are generally smaller and lighter than lead acid booster packs. But don't be fooled by their compact size. Lithium ion booster packs can give you as much cranking power as lead acid booster packs. What they can't do, or at least not yet, is provide continuous power for items such as air compressors. The big advantage to lithium ion boosters is that they can hold their charge for a long time, which means you don't have to worry about recharging them often. Booster packs can come with a few other really convenient features. Exclusive to lead acid booster packs, air compressors can be used to inflate your tires and other sports equipment. Some lead acid booster packs also come with built in AC inverters, which are very convenient for camping and road trips. Because of this, these types of booster packs are called power packs. Lights help you boost in the dark. Plus, you can use your booster pack as a flashlight for any purpose. Most booster packs come with USB ports, so you can charge USB-powered devices such as phones and tablets. With an easy-to-use booster pack in your vehicle, boat, or ATV, you'll enjoy the confidence and convenience of boosting your battery yourself, anytime, anywhere. Don't worry, you got this.
