  • A piece of junk!
  • June 11, 2013
  • My husband bought this product to take to boy scout camp to run his V-Pap machine so he could sleep. The first one he bought had to be returned to the company and they sent him back a "new" one. It had the same problem. The second one worked well the first night, kept his machine going all night. Last night it lasted half way through the night and ran out of juice. It was charging all day, it should have ran all night. This product does not hold the charge is says it does! We were greatly dissapointed in this product!

  • I've had mine for 3 winters and have been very pleased with the length of time it holds a charge, the number of items it can power, and its overall reliability.

  • Although I haven't used all of its features yet, I like the slim look and rugged feel. I also like that the jumper cables are detachable. I'm sure I will get a lot of use from this product. I can take it on trips to charge the kids DSI's and such. It will go with me to the drive-in in to power a radio and jump other cars that used their car battery. I use it to keep my unicycle tire properly inflated which makes the ride so much better.

  • Compressor went out on the second use. With a return policy of 90 days it went out on day 91. Wasted my $100. Very disappointed

  • Seems to be a good tool, but haven't used it yet. Very colorful, sturdy, and seemingly easy to operate.

  • Took it camping to plug a light into and blow up our air mattress using an air pump. Although pictured as having 2 each ac/12 volt plugs it only has one each.

  • Perfect piece of equipment to power my CPAP machine when the power goes out!

  • A very reasonably priced unit that I will use solely as a back-up power supply for my cpap machine. It is small enough to be tucked in a corner and forgotten about until the need arises to use it. It needs a 24 recharge once a month which is easy enough to do. I love it and will replace it with the exact same thing when this one wears out!

  • good idea at first, but battery does not last
  • July 15, 2012
  • I was impressed with unit when first purchased. However, after using it only 10-12 times, and keeping it charged, the battery failed to hold a charge after 30 mos, and when needed on a trip. Very disappointed in the battery life.

  • Wife loves it. Second one of these we've owned first lasted seven years before losing capacity to hold charge.
