This is a good option for those looking for a device that can start the engines of bigger vehicles. Its multi-functionality also comes as a much-appreciated bonus.CHECK LATEST PRICE
There are plenty of affordable jump starters on the market today. But if you own a larger vehicle, chances are, not all of them will work for your engine.
There’s a simple reason why the common product might fail in this scenario. Simply put, bigger vehicles generally have larger engines, which means that you’ll need more power to start them. While an 800A peak amperage starter works with regular cars, you’ll obviously need something more powerful when starting larger trucks – something like the GOOLOO GP200 jump starter.
It has a peak amperage of 1000A, making this product perfect for those who need an additional boost. But this item is not just a jump starter, it’s actually a multifunctional tool that you can use in different ways. These are some of the reasons why this device is our best in functionality pick for 2019.
Compact Yet Powerful
You might have heard the saying “size doesn’t matter” but that does not apply when looking for the best jump starter. Size matters when it comes to a product’s dimensions - you need something that is compact enough that you can easily carry it around, something that you can even store in your car’s glove compartment. In addition, the size also matters when it comes to its output. Obviously, you need a product that generates enough electrical output so it could reliably start any engine every time you use it.
Fortunately, the GOOLOO GP200 Portable Charger meets those criteria. With its peak 1000A, it is so powerful that it can jump-start even bigger engines – up to 6.0L diesel or 8.0L gas engines. With this level of power, you’ll have more assurance that it won’t fail when you need it. Yes, it’ll consistently turn on your car’s engine each time you use it. This makes the product suitable for a wide range of vehicles such as RVs, snowmobiles, cargo vans, lawnmowers, ATVs, boats, light-duty trucks, and tractors. You may even use it to power your car refrigerator or tire inflator.
When it comes to capacity or the electrical power it can store, this product is no slouch either. With 20,800mAh of power, the power it can store in a single charge, you can do 30 jump starts before recharging.
Dimension-wise, you’d be surprised how its manufacturer managed to cram so much power in such a compact package. The product only measures 9.8 x 6.3 x 4.1 inches, which makes it small enough to fit in the glove compartment.
Multifunctional and Safe
While its jump starting ability is already very impressive, you’ll be amazed even more with its host of other functionalities. For instance, you can use it as a high capacity power bank. When a power outage hits your area, you can just pull it out of your car and use it to charge your smartphone, laptop, camera, tablet, and other gadgets. And the best part is that you’ll be charging them faster since this item features a quick charge 3.0 USB port.
With its LED light, you can also use this device at night. Aside from illuminating the area while jump-starting your car, you can even bring this tool while camping and use it as your portable light and power source while in the wilderness.
This tool is also very safe and very easy to use. It is packed with multiple safety features such as reverse connection protection, short circuit protection, over-current protection, over-voltage protection, overload protection, high-temperature protection, surge voltage protection, and over-charge protection.
But I Just Wish…
While this is indeed a very impressive product, there are a couple of issues that might discourage some buyers. The first is its price. Compared to other options, this may come off as more expensive. However, it will be worth every penny you spent if you take into consideration its outstanding features and performance.
Another potential issue is that it might not be the best choice if you plan to use it in a high-temperature environment for a long period of time. In fact, the manufacturer warns against such usage as it might introduce some safety issues.
Needless to say, we still recommend this option. For buyers who can afford its higher price level, the GOOLOO 1000A Peak 20800mAh offers the best functionality in its class. Meanwhile, its temperature warning shouldn’t be a cause of serious concern as this is not the only product that has a recommended temperature range where it can be safely used. For a problem free usage, just use it within the ranges recommended by its manufacturer which is between -20℃ and 40℃ when discharging and between 0℃ and 45℃ when charging.
