Today’s jump starters are not all built with the same level of safety features, so you want to do your shopping carefully. Cobra is a quality brand that offers a convenient all-in-one portable solution for charging your car battery safely.
The newer models of jump starters have functional features available to ensure they do not get lost in your car or become a dust bunny in your glove compartment. For our family, the feature Cobra has is that it also becomes an extra charger for our devices! Everyone in the family is connected, and having something to keep the laptop charged, or give the tablet a boost on a long car ride, goes a long way for us.
The Cobra JumPacks are built with Pentagon Protection® features that protect you and your vehicle from over charge, reverse polarity, short circuit or reverse charge to give you peace of mind. These devices are easy to use and store – small enough to put in a large purse, briefcase or backpack and transport and use while driving, camping, boating, tailgating, hiking or when you need it most--to charge your phone or laptop (just kidding!)-- to jump start your car (and if you find yourself needing a jump, you'll instantly know what a relief it is to have a JumPack in your car!).
The CPP15000 i. The CPP15000 can be used in just about any vehicle or boat up to 8 cylinders or diesel (recommended up to 6.7L). The jump starting function can be done directly at the battery or inside the car (yes, from the INSIDE of your car) through your 12V Accessory port. That is fantastic when you are stuck with inclement weather or when your car is parked where your battery is out of reach (i.e. parking garage where it is hard to get under your hood). It's also a pretty good safety feature, if you ask me.
Both models are equipped with (2) USB ports to conveniently charge (2) devices at a time when on the go. They also feature a 3-mode flashlight that is great for navigating in the dark, while camping or in an emergency situation. You don't have to worry about getting caught in the rain with it either because it has a water-resistant housing.
