450 should be fine. The battery booster pack is better then jumper cables because if no one else is around what are you going to hook the other end of the cables to?
Yep, that's what I was thinking.450 should be fine. The battery booster pack is better then jumper cables because if no one else is around what are you going to hook the other end of the cables to?
I have a JNC12/24 booster in my work truck and it will sit for weeks at a time and still start a bus if they aren't completely dead.Yep, that's what I was thinking.
Any idea of how often you have to refresh the thing to keep it charged up?
Any of you guys use one of these or recommend a particular size? Battery booster
This is the list from Autozone, but Sam's had a combo 450amp booster and inflator for $49.99. I've got some good 4 guage jumper cables that I usually keep in the Ridgeline, but I was wondering if one of these gizmos would be a good thing to have and what power I might need.
Would a 450 amp fire up the Ridgeline if the battery went out? I think our battery is rated 600 or 700 amps, isn't it?
Yes, skycokid, I believe the unit at Sam's is a Stanley.I have and have used this exact (Stanley right?) model for the past two years or so - couldn't be more pleased. I only charged it twice but it never really got weak on me. i recharged it just to be safe. It jump started my DEAD truck battery a half a dozen times earler this summer with no problems whatsoever. Very strong unit. I also use this unit to inflate my kids bike tires and my riding mower tires. i no longer keep jumpers in my truck and this thing lays flat in the under rear seat tray.
Sam's had a 350 unit for $5 cheaper but the extra money is a no brainer for the 450.
If that doesn't jump start your car it might work on someone's heart!Here is the exact model that I have been using for the past few years-just noticed it on sale at walmart.com:
Does a really good job if anyone is shopping for one.
