I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day. I hope you got some great ideas from my Father’s Day Guide. My husband favorite thing from the list was The Best 2,000 Amp Jump Starter from Hammacher.com Usually he is grateful and says thank you but he was overly excited about the jump starter and all of the extra features. He was like, “Babe I can charge my phone from this in an emergency!” So it was nice to see him get something he not only could use but that he was thrilled with. Since we will be driving from Chicago to New York I thought it was a great gift but also something practical that hopefully, we won’t need to use but that we will have.
From their site:
This rechargeable 2000 Amp automotive jump starter earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it was the only unit that consistently started multiple vehicles. The Best model instantly started eight- and six-cylinder engines ten times in a row with ease, unlike inferior units that failed to start either. The Best Automotive Jump Starter was also one of only two units that jump started engines after the devices were placed in a freezer for three hours to simulate the effect of sitting in a frozen car. Analysts noted that The Best unit “required minimal cranking” and that it “even jump-started a diesel van while other units couldn’t.” With short circuit spark-proof protection, a micro-USB port for charging tablets, smartphones, and tire inflators, and an integrated 400-lumen LED flashlight with multiple modes including an SOS and emergency strobe. A three hour charge via its included USB cable or included 12V DC plug provides the jump starter with power for 40 jumps. Ideal for 6- and 8-cylinder gas engines. Includes HD battery clamps and a microfiber storage bag. 8 3/4″ L x 6″ W x 2 1/2″ D. (5 lbs.)
Whether you are going on a road trip or not this is a gift that just makes sense. You are giving the gift of safety. You may leave your car lights on at work and just need a quick jump start to get home. Whatever the reason may be this is a gift I wish I could buy for all of my family and friends. So if this wasn’t something you picked up for Father’s Day consider it for the holidays, birthdays or a just because you care gift! We have not had to use it yet but I will be sure to update everyone when we do! The reviews on their site for this are close to five stars and it has a lifetime warranty.
