My wife made the mistake of buying one of these cheep pieces of junk. It wouldn't jump start anything larger than a Hot Wheel and the tire inflater doesn't work at all. You would literally be better off using a bicycle pump. Don't waste your money and for God's sake don't get one of these for a "in case of an emergency" situation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joseph52 Poorly designed
As others have noted, the flip-out plug in the back is flimsy. It's held in place with inadequate support, so when you even gently try to plug an extension cord onto the plug to charge it, the plug support breaks resulting in it being useless. I looked closely at the plug support and found it's two tiny screws into a thin plastic support that snaps due to lack of support. I returned the first unit thinking it was defective out of the box, but had the same issue with the second unit after being as gentle as possible. This is a clear design issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Thingy Recharging area on unit broke
I bought this last year, a few month's after my husband died. His car battery kept dyng from me not driving his car, and I had already called AAA twice... so I went to Pep Boys and bought one of these to recharge the battery myself. Plugged it in and let it top-off for a couple of days and put it back into box. Sure enough, I eventually needed to use it, and it worked like magic. Unfortunately, when I was trying to connect it to recharge after sitting for a while, the area where the extension cord attaches to the unit broke and now the prong area pushes partway into the unit. Evidently a weak spot. It was always difficult to get the flip-prongs plugged in, and now a connection is impossible. Anyone else have the problem of the recharging connector area breaking?

Rated 1 out of 5 by cactus Plug issue; self-discharge
Unit doesn't come with a power cord. The idea is that you connect an extension cord to flip-out prongs which are recessed on the back of the charger. I tried several extension cords until I found one that would barely stay connected to the recessed flip-out prongs.
The battery discharges fairly rapidly when the unit is just sitting for a couple of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 This product has great features
This is a good product and works as expected. I had the need to jump a weaken battery and it performed well and delivered the necessary power. I allowed it to charge a few minutes before I attempted to start the vehicle, and it cranked with no problem. The price was an exceptional value.
