Btw just checked Amazon. Mine is 3.4 years old, one in wife's car is 3 yrs old and one in son's car is 11 months old. All have been used and I only charge mine twice a year.
The JNC series are always live and no warning if the cables get reversed. I'd like to take out that complicating element. It *shouldn't* be a problem. But still, I'd rather have my wife (also a nurse) not have to deal with that detail if there is another option that will let her just hook it up and fire up without worry about cable connections being correct.My wife (nurse) and 16 yr old both have them and have used them. What's the problem with reverse cables? And I charge ours once a year in October. Mine still had 3 bars in October from the previous October. These things are awesome.
My thoughts exactly. And in so doing, also protect the computer-tronics in both vehicles.snip
Best case, I only use it to help out others.
Thats exactly the one I got. The USB port is great to charge a phone with!. These things are so useful. We even use them to run a series of fluorescent low watt bulbs around the tables at camp when we don't need to run a generator. Another guy uses his to run his CPAP machine during power outages at home. I have also used mine to run a fan occasionally and it works great to power a small TV at football tailgating parties at Baylor football game.

Randy, you should post up a link to that NT jumpstarter. I'm thinking it's this one:
I like the USB port.
what is the promo code for 20 off, if you know ?Outfitter said:They have them on sale now for $99 and there is a coupon for $20 off on a $100 purchase.
I considered that one Nuke83. The thing I didn't like about it was that it has a wall charger, not an internal charger... which is just something else to keep up with. It also has only LED battery indicators and I prefer the gauge. Otherwise, it seems very close to the JNC660 specs.If you're looking for a more industrial jump starter, without all the bells and whistles, Amazon has a Clore unit coming up on a lightening deal at 7:59 am PST (10:59 EST) this morning. Other than the jumper, it has a 12v socket, that's it.
Don't know what it will cost on Amazon is $134.41, so likely to be around $99 or so. Sears sells the same unit for $237.11.
If you read the reviews, this thing is the real deal for a no frills performer. Appears that several AAA clubs use this as well as another reviewer who owns a car lot, so I'd expect industrial strength.
