Jump start your car battery & charge your phones with JUMPR

Jump start your car battery & charge your phones with JUMPR
It happens in some of the most inopportune times. Far away from home, and definitely nowhere close to a repair shop, dead car batteries mean can be a scary thing to endure – more so considering the helplessness we can feel from the experience. Sure, you can call road side assistance or something comparable, but that means more sitting around and waiting. Well folks, if you happen to have the JUMPR, you’ll be able to fix your problem in a jiffy.

As its name so happily implies, JUMPR is a sleek and portable 6,000 mAh external battery capable of bringing back your car to life. Specifically, it can be used to jumpstart that dead car battery – giving drivers a backup solution in case they ever find themselves in that unfortunate situation. Relying on one of its USB ports, which deliver 12 volts of power at 300 amps, it’s enough to certainly jump start 4 and 6-cylinder car engines.

At the same time, JunoPower’s JUMPR can also charge your mobile devices on the go, since it’s a portable battery of course. Armed with a 5V 2.1A USB port, it means that smartphones, cameras, and tablets can all be juiced on the go as well. Heck, the JUMPR even happens to pack along a built-in LED flash light too!

Now, in order to jump start a car battery, users will need to use the unit’s proprietary jumper cables, which connect to the JUMPR’s 12V USB port. From there, all you’ll need to do is connect the cables to the car battery and bam! Life is brought back to that dead car battery. Expected to ship sometime between May and June, JUMPR will carry a retail price of $89.99. However, if you happen to snap a pre-order for it before May 1st, you’ll be able to purchase it at the discounted price of $69.99 through JunoPower’s web site.

Is this in theory. How long could it put out 300 amps? For 1/2 of a second? I would like to see this on video, and with an actually dead battery as advertised. Not just a low battery. I would have to see it to believe it.

I'm dubious. Let me know when Phone Arena gets a review unit and tries it out for real.

well, some car batteries not all 4's or 6's as some heavy duty trucks require about 6-700 amps but still its neat for a small family car

Yes, "all" is a stretch as there are exceptions to every rule. I just reread the website and it does in fact say "almost all", so I guess they are covered. I'm betting it would only work if the car starts in one or two cranks. If you watched the video, even the Honda seemed like it turned over a bit sluggish. Given it's size, I can't imagine it has much reserve. Actually might be nice if they made a smaller set of cable clamps for motorcycles where the batteries can be difficult to get to.

"Now, in order to jump start a car battery, users will need to use the unit’s proprietary jumper cables, which connect to the JUMPR’s 12V USB port." The jumper cables plug in to a 2 pin connector on bottom of the unit - not the USB port. Madmikepr... From the company website... "JUMPR charges via Micro USB cable or 12V Cigarette port. Cables are included." I'm a little skeptical since it says it works on all 4 cylinders and most 6 cylinders and maybe more, which translates to borderline. However, it looks like a nice device to power up mobile devices and if it gets you out of a pinch with a dead car battery, all the better. I'll still keep a set of jumper cables in the vehicle.

a bit expensive especially if your car's battery never died in an awkward place !
