I bought their 2000 amp version to keep on my boat. I haven't these mentioned here for offroading. Supposedly has enough power to start multiple V8's in a tiny package. Has USB, accessory plug, and multi function light. I was skeptical.

Yesterday I needed it to jump my Escalade. It recharged my dead battery enough to work the electronics in about 5 minutes then spun the engine as fast as the main battery. Started quickly and the Noco still showed 100% reserve power.

This small light unit seems perfect for offroading. Tons of uses besides a helping someone who left their lights on when cables won't reach. Now a permanent part of my recovery pack.

Sorry if this thread is redundant.

great post I have a portable jump start kit but its also a pump so the things is huge and weighs a tonne. not really the sort of thing you would always keep on hand inside a wrangler but this is small enough to fit under the seat.

Exactly what I had from HF. My air pump was useless and battery didn't last a year. No comparison.

That's an intriguing idea. What's that thing weigh and what does it cost? Space wise it looks easy to carry.
Here is the Amazon link to the 1000amp version for $96 Prime. I went for the 2000amp one for use in my boat which has big Cummings diesels. 1000amp is great for a Jeep. All the specs and options are there. Noco rates higher than knock offs.

Pretty cool! I was just talking with my wife about these last month when our car died on us. Luckily we had AAA come and give us a jump start. That got me thinking though about carrying around one of these. It would be great for situations where you need a jump start.

All those good reviews on Amazon don't lie either!

I checked them out after seeing your post. They look slick! The 1000 amp can jump a TJ easily as well as charge all kinds of stuff. The company claims it will hold a charge for up to a year as well.
Mine sat about 6 months unused and stayed at 100%

Coincidence. A friend left parking lights on last night. Totally dead battery (old too). Got out my trusty NOCO. This guy is a gear head and laughed. Sat about 5 minutes giving a base charge (thanks Jerry) and it fired right up. I have NOT recharged the NOCO from last week jumping my Escalade. NOCO still shows 100%. I love this! I might be confident enough to stop carrying bulky cables soon.

I just bought suaoki jump starter .This jumped a 4.6 L Toyota 4runner V8 SUV and a motorcycle without any issues. The one problem I had was the 2 USB ports do not charge my Apple Iphones or Ipads using the lightning connector. I tried switching different cables but still would not work.

We have one and have had it for 3 years, very handy! Always take it with us.
Has jumped our V-10 motorhome with it. My Dodge diesel, plus has charged our cell phones when in remote areas.

Sounds good either the lightning cables are damaged or the USB ports simply don’t push enough current.

I have carried a NOCO Genius 1000 amp lithium ion jump pack for several years. It easily fits under the seat and has started every engine it has been hooked to - even after sitting unused for 6+ months.

Yea, I just realized that we sell these at Best Buy too when I saw this on their gift suggestions recently. I'm married to a planner, so all the holiday shopping is already done, but I'll probably use this as a gift idea for next year.
