JumpStart: Priceless Portable Kit for Every Day and Emergency Use!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


"What's that?!," you might be asking. Well, I am happy to tell you that it is one side of the great, sturdy but flexible and small case that is holding a portion of the JumpSmart set my son now has in his truck. My son is a reliable, hard-working young man who would be able to recruit a jump easily if he needed one, with or without cables (he's not shy, not a bit), but should the chance event happen that his truck wouldn't start up, I'd rather he had a way to get it started on his own. I've said it before, I'm not overly paranoid (if I keep repeating it, does that mean that I am?!?), but I'd rather leave chance encounters with complete strangers, when you are in a vulnerable position (such as your automobile not being able to start), to the bare minimum.

While that might sound all good and well, you might still be wondering what a JumpStart is...it is a "vehicle jump starter that is powerful enough to power-up to a 3.0L vehicle and a 2.0 diesel truck!" In fact, you can 'jump start your car, boat, lawn mower and more with the High-Grade 10,000 mAh/3700 mWh Lithium-Polymer Battery (12V/200~400A vehicle batter). You can also recharge the JumpStart up to 1,000 times (that means it's going to be around for awhile)!


Let's talk about what's included in the package. I'll start by saying everything you need to jump start your vehicle is in the package, as well as all you need for a light, strobe, SOS signal, and/or personal power bank. On the one side, you have a pouch for the car charger, a wall (electrical outlet) charger, and the instruction manual.


On the other side you have the jumper cables themselves and the instructions printed yet again on the fabric inside of the pouch. THAT is an awesome step-above that they took because in the heat of them moment, it always seems like the instruction manuals take a little walk (or simply cannot be found) even if you've seen the manual and are sure you had it packaged with the item in question, a million and one times.


The cables are color coded so you know which is positive, and which is negative, and they don't take up a lot of room, but as we saw above, they are effective for getting the job done. They also have a safety feature that makes noise to alert you, if you connect them the wrong way (thank you, JumpSmart!). For most people it might be a given on how to connect these, but for me, I always want to be sure-sure, and those warning chimes give me peace of mind. In fact, this device has 10 built-in safety features with audible alarms and visual safety indicator lights to protect your car and JumpSmart from an improper connection.


In the photo above, you can see how the cables are attached to the device that you will attach to the main powering unit (the little blue piece just under the red cable).


This is the main powering unit, which fits rather nicely into the case and has its own satchel/bag to keep it handy, and to keep the lens from getting scratched.


I've taken it out of the bag here, so you can see what it looks like. It's not lightweight like many other starters you might find on the market. It is made from heavyweight, durable CNC machined aluminum extruded housing that has knurled casing to help it withstand the wear and tear that comes with everyday use.



You might think it also looks like a flashlight, and it does, because it is that too. It is not just a regular flashlight though. This feature of the JumpSmart goes above and beyond traditional, because it is thoughtfully made to be the best assistant it can be when you are in a possibly stressful situation! How? The flashlight has  high beam, weak beam, strobe and SOS modes, all of which I absolutely love! 


This little kit is in a word, amazing. I'd love to get one for every person in my family who drives, and I may do so for Christmas (yeah, I think about Christmas early over here). This is a gift that is handy, practical and cool because it's also useful in ways you might not consider (such as also being able to power USB devices).


There is a sticker on the device when you get it new that says to charge fully before first time use, and to charge once every 3 months. Probably a good idea to schedule that into your phone calendar so you remember. You want to make sure it's ready to go any time you might need to use it.


If you lift the flap on the end piece, this is what you will see...the blue colored section matches the blue color on the cable cord, so there is no guessing needed as to where it should be placed (again, I appreciate being able to use it with confidence, so I am always in favor of color coding!). You can also see the spot to plug in USB devices if you'd like to or need to charge those. The switch is for on/off. There is a power indicator light as well.


When you're done, everything packs back up nice and neat inside of the case. The sturdy yellow tab allows you to carry it nicely once it is zipped back up. This is small enough to tuck under a seat, or take up virtually no space at all in your trunk. I cannot say enough in favor of the JumpSmart, which also comes with a 1-year guarantee.

Thankfully there has not been many times where I was in a very bad situations with my car but just in case, better have that kit!

Serena H said...

This is an item everyone should have in their car. It is so needed especially during those possible crazy winter months.

Scott Gombar said...

This is a great little kit. I learned a few years ago that AAA pays for itself easily. In the last 2 years between my wife and I it cost $100/year. 3 Flats, 1 Dead battery and 1 tow. Easily paid for.

Kathleen Blaney said...

This is a great all around emergency kit to carry. Great post and great job showing the kit in detail for your readers.

I know so many people who would benefit from having this! Especially here in Australia.

Kathy said...

This is an awesome tool! We are actually looking for something like this. Very handy!

Pat Hatt said...

Limiting contact with complete strangers probably isn't a bad thing. Sure sounds perfect indeed. Christmas present it would make.

Monidipa Dutta said...

This is really handy. There are so many times when one can use it. Thanks for sharing.

This looks like a must have. I travel alone a lot and this would give me some security.

Unknown said...

Really different and useful thing. A toolkit everyone should own.

This is handy and looks like a great tool to have. My Dad would like this for sure.

WOW I love how portable this is! I have never seen one so compact! I am going to look into this ty for sharing!

Lavanda Michelle said...

I have a similar kit and I love it. It has helped others more than myself, but I am happy that I have it.

alissa apel said...

We have something like that for each car. It's important. Safety first!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Mariah just got her license (finally and a big fat hurray!) and this would be so nice to keep in her car. We do worry about car issues with her being so far away at school most of the year and this would give us a little peace of mind knowing she has it in her car.

Mommy Sigrid said...

This is really handy and useful. I don't drive, so I just usually ride with my husband. But he would really need this.

I am retired and don't have a need for this BUT............ My niece is a beautian and some nights she does not get off work till 8pm. And she also works a bar 2 nights a week. This would be a really great safety thing for her to have
