A car starter battery booster is one of the most valuable automotive accessories available.  They have been made even more valuable by the advent of lithium battery technology which has made them lightweight and compact compared to lead-acid models.  No longer do you have to take a set of jumper cables with you or hope that some Good Samaritan will take pity on you and help you out.  No longer do you have to be stranded in a dark, rainy, poorly lit parking lot waiting for who knows how long for AAA to rescue you.  Portable jump starters can make you self-sufficient in the even of a car battery emergency.

I like tough looking things, probably because I’m a guy.  I like pickup trucks, muscle cars, tractors, and construction equipment.  I’m probably a cliché.  It’s who I am.  When it comes to a car starter battery booster, I want a booster pack that matches up with my idea of tough.  Unfortunately, they are not easy to find.  A car starter battery booster uses basically one of two battery technologies.  It can have a built-in lead-acid battery or a newer lithium battery.

Those made with lithium battery technology are compact and lightweight, while those with lead-acid batteries are larger and bulkier.  I would like to recommend the more compact lithium models in this article because I do in most of my other articles about jump starters, but it’s not easy to make a compact, lightweight car battery booster look tough.  A lead-acid car starter battery booster, on the other hand, has more to work with so it’s easier to put some bells and whistles on it to make it look tougher.





Bells and whistles are important to the whole tough look.  So is color.  I want a car jump starter that has functionality that goes beyond jump starting.  It should probably have a built-in air compressor, but it should definitely have lots of gauges, ports, and plugs.  It needs to be camo, construction yellow, black, hunter orange, construction orange, or some sort of dark green in order to match up to my tough standards.

What about the name?  Model names are important, too.  Tough names give you an instant feeling that the device is tough even before you absorb its looks.  Words like extreme, professional, power, multi-purpose, truck, adventure, CAT, rugged, viper, and ultra are just some examples.


Interested in seeing other battery boosters?  Be sure and see our other articles about some of the best:


This article is all about looks.  While all the models I’m listing are adequate jump starters, they are on this list because they have the looks and probably some extra bells and whistles.


Rather than write about each battery jump starter on our list.  We have just included a picture of each portable jump starter which should give you an instant idea of how tough it looks.  If you need more, just click on the picture of each battery jumper to find out more.


We hope you agree that these are some of the toughest looking battery boosters available.
