    Right now, my go to, is the Micro start XP-1. Small enough to fit in the seat back pocket but it will start a car if necessary. Do you guys have a better pack?

    Batteries are nice, but if it dies, thatís what hand propping is for.

    Looks like you're building LiFePO4 batteries similar to what EarthX does. Looks cool. I haven't compared your pricing to EarthX yet. What's different about your product?

    I used to love my EarthX jump pack, till it died right at 3 years old. They no longer sell not can maintain the original 12V pack, only offer a 12-24V unit for $250 or so. I have no need for a 24V unit and that money for what might only be a 3 year life is not of interest to me.
    As such my eyes and ears are open here as well for other brand LiFePO4 units.

    Uhoh. Mine is two years old and it has worked great the few times I needed it. I didn't know they discontinued it.

    I have owned several Li start packs, including an EarthX. None of them lasted more than a few uses. I think that kind of discharge rate on such small batteries is too damaging.

    Whats different.. good Q -
    > The cells - 26650's ( same as used in Truebluepower's batteries ) vs pouch cell in Ex.
    26650's can tolerate more abuse, but they are a little heavier
    > The case , anodized AL / carbon fiber vs plastic.
    > The BMS...what can I say.... basically its like comparing a double whopper to a Cyrstal's slider.
    > The cost ... mine are pricier by about 10%
    > Color ...
    > No battery box needed

    Iíve setup booster cable for both my cub and maule itís the system from noco. Thus far itís a cheap setup and the battery tenders they sell work very well. They also have portable jumpers that are small and cheap. I can attest to them working well jumping a concord 35axc in the maule. In fact, I used the repair function on the tender to seemingly squeeze the last couple years out of the battery it has in it currently, which has been an interesting experiment.
