This rechargeable automotive jump starter was named The Best by The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it was the easiest to use and the most effective at jump-starting a car or SUV.


Without an adjacent car and with a single charge of its own battery, The Best model started four-cylinder and six cylinder cars easily when attached to their respective batteries, making the charger ideal for emergency situations—lesser starters lost all their power after jumping a car only once. The Best Automotive Jump Starter’s compact size allows it to fit into a glove box while bulkier models require dedicated trunk space. It weighs only 13 oz.—other tested models tipped the scales at a cumbersome 39 lbs. With short circuit protection, The Best starter also has a USB port for replenishing cell phones, an integrated flashlight, and LED lights to indicate its remaining charge. Carries its charge for up to one year without use. 7" L x 6 1/2" W x 2 1/2" D. (2 lbs.)
