What is a compact battery booster pack, compact battery jump starter, or car jump starter?  Think of them as very small all-in-one jumper cables with a built-in donor car battery used to jump-start your dead car battery, automotive battery, truck battery, motorcycle battery, or powersports 12V battery.  Normally to jump-start a car you would need either jumper cables and a donor car with a good battery or you would need a lead-acid battery jump starter.

Lead-acid battery car jump starters have been around for years and they are still popular, but they have drawbacks.  First, they are very heavy.  Since they are really just lead-acid batteries in a box, they carry the same weight as a typical lead-acid battery of the same size.




They are also fairly large and bulky.  That creates two problems.  You have to carry a battery jumper with you for it to be useful and that means you have to have somewhere in your vehicle to store it.  There are not a lot of handy places in most vehicles to store a traditional battery booster pack.

Battery Booster Pack Schumacher SL1 Red Fuel Jump Starter Accessory Bag ViewLarge and heavy battery boosters are more difficult to use under the hood.  You have to leave them connected to the battery under your hood while you start your car.  It can be difficult to balance a traditional portable jump starter somewhere under your hood where it won’t fall and create other problems when you try to start your car.

That’s where compact battery booster packs come in.  They are based on new lithium-ion technology and are amazingly small and light which makes them easy to store in your vehicle and easy to use under the hood.  Typically they come in their own accessory case that can fit in a glove box, door pocket, or seat pocket.  Under the hood, it’s easier to find a secure location to place them while you start your car.  Most even have a built-in flashlight to make the process easier in low-light situations and provide portable power using a power pack for your mobile devices or 12V DC devices.

Lithium-Ion technology provides longer life, more charge cycles, and safer operation than traditional lead-acid models.  There is no doubt that it is the wave of the future when it comes to jump starters.


This article is about a new lithium-ion compact battery booster pack made by one of the leaders in the jump starter industry, Schumacher.  Schumacher battery chargers are also some of the best in the industry.
