Portra-Jump is tiny, will jump start your car

Porta-Jump

How many times have you gone out to start your car (truck, SUV) only to find that you’ve done something like left your headlights on? This of course means that you’re going to have a fun time trying to get it started again. Your best bet is to grab a pair of jumper cables (always carry these) and try to find someone willing to give you a jump. However, if you have a Porta-Jump, you won’t need to worry about messing with any of that.

This is one of those gadgets that will become almost a necessity to carry around, provided it works as well as it boasts. The cube measures 3” x 3” x 2-1/2”, which is much smaller than any such device I’ve ever seen. All you need to do is plug it into your cigarette adapter and wait for the little green light to come on. Once this happens your car is ready to be started.

The Porta-Jump is rechargeable, you’ll just need to leave it plugged in (while you’re driving) for about a half hour for a full charge. With it being so small it is perfect to carry around in your glove compartment. At $19.99, there’s no reason not to get one.

[...] Vous êtes assis dans votre voiture sur le parking de votre travail et la batterie de votre voiture est morte. Il faut que quelqu’un sorte les câbles pour vous aider. Vos collègues sont des idiots qui refusent de vous aider. Peu importe, vous avez le Porta Jump. Vous n’avez pas besoin de câbles de batteries ou de collègues sympas. Vous n’avez qu’à brancher cette chose sur votre allume-cigare, attendre que la lumière passe au vert et tourner la clé dans le démarreur. Comme ça. La voiture démarre et le Porta Jump se recharge pendant que vous conduisez. Son utilisation est à la portée de tous et ça ne coûte que 15€. [JC Whitney via Book of Joe via Coolest Gadgets] [...]
