5 Best Portable Car Battery Jump Starters

You’ve taken the plunge and decided to purchase a portable car battery jump starter. But now you’re plagued with so many options you don’t know which one you like. In 5 Best Portable Car Battery Jump Starters, I go through the features, as well as, the pros and cons of these 5 jump starters.  At the end of the article, there is a comparison chart to help you with your purchasing decision. 

In my previous article, Car Battery Jump Starter, I go over some things you want to keep in mind in choosing your jump starter.

What I’ve found also is that Lithium jump starters are not rated in the same way as traditional automotive batteries, so there is no cold-cranking amp number to provide that would be helpful. For that reason, those types of jump starters at times use the size of the engine they can start based on average conditions.  If mAh is given, it is provided in the review.

As with all my reviews, at the time of writing, I only look at those products that have at least a 4+ star rating. Please also know that ratings can change, as can features, over time, so be sure to click the links to check the ratings before purchasing.

If you want just a quick glance here are the links to the jump starters discussed in more detail below. A more in-depth easy to read comparison table is included at the bottom of this post.
