I picked up a GB40 as I was having issues with a automobile and dragging around a deep cycle boosting battery was getting tiresome. This things weighs all of 2 pounds. It comes with plug ins,,and battery clamps. No wall plug in,,plugs in to USB to recharge

What is the output on them?  Seen them advertised but as small as they are I wonder about their actual power.  Be good to hear how they work.

A friend of mine that just retired from his dealership, bought a similar unit, wasn't cheap, but it will start a Duramax in 30° weather.

We already have and use a 20K Mah Zero Lemon used to recharge phones and  tablets when camping and it works flawlessly. Showed this to my wife and she sez, "buy it." Good enough for me. The review videos are straight forward.

IMO, adding solar functions will be a major plus.

1000 amps looks real good. Most big boxes don't have that

I am waiting for a real world emergency. Like the dawn of cooler temps in this pic,,, my mighty Yota firing up my big truck. Don't expect the GB40 to spin the big engine but I would give it a whirl

Ok kids. This is what I did. The 7 year old Walmart battery was not dead after 20 minutes with all 4 accessories on so I disconnected battery. Press Genius battery over ride as no battery was detected and it fired the V6 up ,, that said booster cables stay in vehicles to offer secondary options and they would just clutter up shop

I left the SS16 outside overnight. It definitely does not like the cold at all! Battery was sucking wind after a few turns. It was only -10 with 30 mph winds all night. Used the GB40 and still took numerous spins without starting so I gave it a shot of START DAMMIT and tractor fired up. Tractor will be posing in garage for the winter.
