I used the jump start, just as it said, but it did not work. At first I thought it was a hunk of junk. Had to have my car towed in. The shop told me that my battery had a dead short in it, which is why the jump start did not work. The dead short drained all the juice out of the unit. He said if the battery in the car had gone dead, because my charging system was not working, or something had been left on and drained the battery, than the jump start unit would have worked fine. So if yours does not work, check to see if your battery had a dead short in it, before you trash this unit.Read More
This product is a piece of junk. It did not work as advertised. Would not jumpstart my car. I would not buy this again.Read More
Will use this product as a safety net for battery issues in the future.Read More
It is heavier than I anticipated, but fortunately I haven't had to use it. It gives you peace of mind that I wouldn't have to get out of the car if the battery dies.Read More
Excellent product. Does what it says it will do. One complaint - there is no simple way to check the unit for condition of charge.Read More
I knew I would need a new battery soon and bought this just in case I got stuck somewhere. It happened tonight. 1:00 a.m. and I'm all alone in a parking lot. Read the directions (such tiny print especially in low light!) and set it to go. It got very warm, then hot, but my car would not even sputter. The green light was on, implying that it was charging, and the switch was set correctly. I am less than impressed. An hour's wait for the tow truck just for a charge, but fortunately no charge to me. I think this is just too cheap to be relied upon.Read More
My car has a small electric leak that causes the battery to die occasionally. I purchased the Porta Jump so that I wouldn't have to worry about a dead battery all the time. I've owned it for several months now and used it maybe five times. It works just as the description said it would. I just plug it into my cigarette lighter, wait 5-10 minutes and start the car normally. The Porta Jump re-charges off of the cigarette lighter so when I get where I'm going I unplug it and its re-charged and waiting for the next time I need it. Also, it came charged so I didn't have to worry about charging it the first time. I would definitely recommend this to a friend as it is 1) small and easy to store in the car 2) re-charges off the car so you don't have to remember to re-charge it 3) is easy to use with no jumper cables or anything complex 4) it just works. The only real downside of this device is that it does take time to charge your battery. Other options will jump a car immediately. The Porta Jump needs to be plugged in for a little while before the car can be started. This hasn't really ever been an issue for me but buyers should be aware of it.Read More
I have tried to use this now three times. Since it didn't work the first time, I carefully went thru the directions to make sure I did everything right and tried again with my old car's good but dead battery- nothing! My neighbor left her lights on and her battery went dead so we tried on it- again nothing. Maybe I got a bad unit or something... it is a great idea and I really wanted it to work. I feel very squeamish about jump starting and conventional battery chargers but it's back to old tech for me.Read More
This device was purchased as an emergency back up for a battery in good condition, that had been inadvertantly run down. It will get you re-started in an emergency, but it will not bring an old dead battery back to life.Read More

Questions & Answers
Hello amylover, This is just meant to charge 12-volt batteries. Have a great day!
Is this rechargeable or a one time use only?
It's fully charged and ready to use when you get it and it's rechargeable so you can use it again and again! It will hold its charge for up to 5 years. It has 30 volts of power packed into a compact, easy to store, miniature battery box. Simply put the adaptor switch back after your vehicle has started and the electrical energy flows back into the Porta-Jump. After about 30 minutes, disconnect the adaptor from the power port and store your Porta-Jump back into the glove box for another emergency battery boost. Thank you.
Recharges by plugging into the car while driving.
