5 Best Portable Car Battery Jump Starters (2021 Comparison)

You’ve taken the plunge and decided to look into purchasing a portable car battery jump starter. But now, you’re plagued with so many options you don’t know which one best fits your needs. In 5 Best Portable Car Battery Jump Starters (2021 Comparison), you’ll explore the features, as well as the pros and cons of these 5 jump starters – GooLoo, Hulkman, Clore, Kinverch, and Rugged Geek. 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.

You’ll find 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.

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.
