Well, since we weren't really moving the car around much during the trip, the unit was needed another handful of times to start the car. The battery didn't get sufficiently charged until the return trip to California. This guy is now a staple in my glove box.
I picked up one of these just after the article appeared. Until then I was using a portable battery weighing over 25 pounds when I had problems with my car starting. Due to the weight, I did not like leaving it in my car. Since I ride a motorcycle, many times I will go to use my car and find my battery has drained due to non-use.I stashed this unit in the glove compartment, then headed off to Arizona for a camping trip to the Grand Canyon. During the trip, my friends kids managed to leave one of my doors ajar, leading to a dead battery. I pulled out this unit and my friend scoffed at my naïveté. The car started within 3-4 seconds, leaving me smiling and her shocked.Well, since we weren't really moving the car around much during the trip, the unit was needed another handful of times to start the car.

Being stranded in a car that won't start can result from many issues, but if your problem is a worn battery, you can be back on the road with a little help and some good planning. All you need is a jump-start. But you don't need to be a mechanic or even a "gear head" to do it you just have to know how to jump-start a car safely.
So, I had my first chance today to use the portable pack. With my auto parked, I accidentally left the running lights on for about 2 1/2 hours and when I returned, the battery was dead. It's been sitting in the glove box for the last 6 weeks quietly waiting for this day. It started the car in seconds, on the first attempt. Thanks again
