Why You Need a Jump Starter in Your Vehicle

Your portable, powerful fix for a flat battery

Jump starters have proven their mettle for when you're faced with a dead or weakened battery. These portable jump starter devices pack a punch despite their compact design, featuring a rechargeable lithium battery and jumper cables to easily connect to your vehicle.

Brands like iTechworld have taken jump starters to the next level, incorporating built-in torches, LED displays, and multiple input/output ports for added convenience.

But why opt for a jump starter over the traditional method of flagging down another vehicle? Let's break it down.

Jump starters are safer than jumper leads

A jump starter will get you on your way in seconds, with no damage to your vehicle or a donor vehicle.

While jumper cables hooking into another live battery are the go-to for many, they aren’t the best option. Modern vehicles with advanced electronic components are susceptible to voltage spikes and other anomalies, which can be dangerous for all involved.

By using a lithium jump starter you eliminate the risk of damaging the host vehicle's delicate electronics when drawing power. There’s also the risk of sparking, which can cause fires, or the other vehicle simply not being compatible with the leads.

Of the two methods, a jump starter is the safer choice as it acts as an extension of the vehicle's battery. All iTechworld jump starters come with peace of mind protections against:

  • Overcurrent
  • Overload
  • Short circuiting
  • Over-voltage
  • Over-charge
  • Over-temperature
  • Reverse polarity

The fastest way to jump start your vehicle

You typically only discover a flat battery when you have somewhere to be.

When it comes to getting your vehicle quickly started a jump starter pack is going to outperform traditional options every time. This is because jump starters deliver a high amperage to make even a completely flat battery usable within seconds.

Some people may think first of an option like a lead acid battery charger. While this is capable of fully charging your battery, you also need access to power to do this. Car battery chargers also take much longer to get you moving, with most taking anywhere between 10-24 hours to fully charge.

That’s not much help to you if you’re sitting on the side of the road, or if you were meant to leave for work ten minutes ago. Keeping a jump starter handy gets you back on track right away.

Who needs jumper cables when you have one of these:
