Looking for the most powerful battery jumper? Read on...
By G. Powers
If you can't start your car or truck with this thing, you have bigger problems than a dead battery! This unit is one of the most powerful portable battery jumpers out there at 1700 peak amps. That's almost twice as powerful as many other lower quality competitors.
This is not a "multi-purpose" unit that you will find at the local big box store. It's not an air compressor, radio, flashlight, food processor and battery jumper. It's only a battery jumper, although it does have a "cigarette-lighter" style socket to power other items if needed.
This is a great product, but consider this before you buy it: This model may not be for everyone. This is a professional grade item and is not intended to be used by people unfamiliar with proper battery jumping procedures. Here's why I say this:
1. Some battery jumping devices have a feature that will alert you if you hook the jumper cables up incorrectly. This unit has no such feature.
2. Some have safety switches that remove power to the cables while you are hooking them up. This unit has no such switch.
3. Some battery jumpers have sophisticated chargers that won't allow you to overcharge the battery. Not this one. When you plug it in to recharge it, you can't just walk away for 2 days and let it charge. You have to monitor it during the recharging process.
4. Some battery jumpers have a set of generic lights to tell you the current state of charge of the booster box. Not this one. It has a voltmeter on the front and you need to know how to read it.
Now, none of these items is THAT big of a deal, but I thought it was worth mentioning. If you aren't familiar with how to properly jump-start a car, you may be better off with another model with more "dummy-proof" features.
One last comment: This Jump n Carry comes with a redeemable certificate for a one-time replacement unit. If (for ANY reason) this unit stops working during its lifetime, you send it back to the company with the certificate (along with $50) and they will repair or replace it, no questions asked. Not a bad deal!
Bottom Line: If you need the most power in a single-purpose jumper box, buy this one!

Update on Auto-Charging from the Manufacturer
Per the manufacturer, all of the JNC660's manufactured AFTER May 2010 now have an AUTO CHARGE feature that allows for you to plug the unit into charge and not have to monitor the charging process. This was a very big drawback of this unit prior as noted in one of the 5 star reviews from G.Powers [Looking for the most powerful battery jumper? Read on..., November 21, 2007] However, the other 'dummy proof' features are still not included in this unit (reverse hookup and turning off power to the cables during hookup)

Lots of tires pumped up fast and still more!
By Thomas Erickson
I could not stand the rinky dink 12v cigarette plug low volume compressors to pump up tires. Plus I go in areas where there is no AAA help or cell phone connect, so if you get a flat or need a jump you maybe on your own. This Jump and Carry Start/compressor power source is of battleship construction. Built to last. This is what the professionals use .
I pumped up 8 ATV tires that need a few pounds more each. Then pumped up 4 big van tires. One needed 18 lbs more, the other three 5 pounds more each to 38lbs. Then 4 truck tires 5 more pounds each to 40 lbs. This means to me that this compressor will easily pump up a flat after putting in temporary green slime or a low spare tire. Could of even pumped up my 4 travel trailer tires also. All this on 1 charge. The compressor kept on putting out fast large volume air. It got a little warm but not hot. Shut off compressor each time a tire was filled and checked the built in gauge to a good tire pressure separate gauge. Accurate.
I put it on recharge plugged into the wall with an extension cord and it was still in the good green after all this tire filling.
This compressor pumped up the tires very quickly. Much much faster than those low volume 12V cigarette plug compressors. Shut off compressor and looked at the gauge. It was accurate compared to a good tire gauge.
I have not had to jump start a car yet. Will add to post when I go. The alligator clamps are solid heavy duty and a good length of heavy duty jump cable supplied. This is a first rate unit, battleship construction and built to last. 5 stars
I keep the unit topped off charged once a month just to make sure its topped off and has a full charge.I always keep the unit in the truck when I go on long distance travel. If I break down at least I can pump up a tire or jump my battery by myself.
Oct30. My daughter's boyfriend bought over an ATV. Jump started it instantly with the Solar Jump N Carry. Jump N Carry had been sitting a month. Very old ATV battery was dead and did not take a charge with a battery charger.
June 14 Checked and topped off 4 van tires and 2 ATVs ( 8 tires).
June 16. Filled up ATV tire ( flat after pumping in Green Slime) effortlessly same charge on Jump N Carry as June 14.
June17 2011. Big battery to truck bad. Just click click no turn over. Connected Jump N Carry... same charge as June 14.Started truck in 2 cranks err err. Took truck in for service. Bad battery... shorted cell. Had to buy new battery. Glad I have the Jump N Carry around. Easy to use.. took less than 3 minutes.
June 16, 2012 Unit is still working perfect. Family and I have used it at least 70 times to start cars and big trucks and fill up tires (can go up to 60psi). Also have used it as a power source via the supplied female cigarette plug enclosure to run my moving 20 inch telescope. Lasted all night long!
