The "Carry" part of Jump-N-Carry is slightly misleading because this beast is heavy! I am a big guy standing 6'4" at 240 pounds and carrying this thing around is a workout. I leave it in my car's trunk and I have used this so many times since December 2009 when I bought it that I have lost count.
I originally purchased this for emergency use in case my battery dies or a tire goes flat. For that purpose, I have used it many times, both to jump-start my car when the battery died and to fill my car and motorcycle tires with air when they start to get low. Just having it available for these tasks makes it completely worth what I had paid for it. However, by far the most number of times I have used this is to help a stranger in need.
Whenever I drive by and see someone staring dumbly at their car with the hood up, I stop and ask if they need any help. More often than not, they just need a jump-start. Out comes my Jump-N-Carry and within just a few seconds, their vehicle is running again. It is as simple as placing it near their vehicle, putting the red cable on their positive connector, black cable on their negative connector and telling them to start the vehicle. Every time, the vehicle had started instantly--no hesitation. I once had to use the jump-starter three times in a single day without needing to charge it. I am very impressed with its performance.
There are smaller and lighter ones out there, but if you need something you can depend on, this beast of a jump-starter will not disappoint you.

This charger is a beast - and that's a good thing
Jump-N-Carry JNC660 1700 Peak Amp 12-Volt Jump Starter I'm a woman who travels alone for business trips, sometimes 400 round trip miles in a day. I also adore my 1999 Chevy Corvette that has temperamental electrical issues. For no reason yet identified, there is something that can drain the battery in the time it takes me to be locked up in business meetings all day, meaning, when it's time to start up for the long trip home from Chicago, I may need to jump my battery. While I continue to hunt down the source of my troubles, having a reliable jump start source is essential. It's also helpful for those winter times when my Jeep battery needs a boost to start in extremely cold temps. What I like about this charger is it holds quite a punch. I'm able to get about 3 cold starts on my cars prior to recharging the unit. While I don't recommend that, at least it's not a once and done jump, which helps if you are out of the road. The voltage gauge and red button to press to see what charge it's holding always let you know it's capacity. It is heavy, which makes sense for the amount of battery power it is packing, about 20 pounds. There is a DC outlet also to use for other items, like tire air compressors, camping items, etc. The attached charging cables are heavy duty, and have two wings on the side of the unit that allow you to wrap the cable cords and clip the charging heads over the unit safely for movement and storage and to prevent contact with each other. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is one of these wings on the side snapped off ( I dropped it, so mostly my fault), so now I just clip the cable jaw to the handle and it's fine. The time to total refill charge seems to be about 3 hours using your own heavy duty outdoor extension cord to plug onto the male prongs on the device. The peace of mind that you can jump start yourself and get going is well worth the investment the next time you leave your lights on, or cold saps your battery.

Defective right out of the box: Be careful what you buy
I've been looking to purchase a new Jump pack for use in the shop and narrowed my selection down to either the Clore JNC660 or the Shumacker ProSeries DSR PSJ-2212
The reviews were about equal on both so I decided to get the JNC660
Well, I just received the JNC660 today and it is defective right out of the box.
I plugged it in to charge and the amber led that is suppose to be lit does not indicate it is charging. The Green LED does not show it is fully charged either.
I verified my power cord has power from the outlet; even switched to another cord.
Disappointed; I guess companies no longer have QC on their products.
UPDATE: Feb 04, 2014
After realizing that Amazon will not accept returns on this item, I contacted Clore Automotive tech support and explained that I had received a defective jump pack. I reviewed with them the various items I had checked to confirm that it was indeed defective.
After they confirmed that I had purchased it via Amazon, they shipped a new JNC660 to me along with a prepaid UPS label to return to them the defective unit. I had the replacement unit in 5 days after contacting them. The replacement unit works great.
Clore Automotive gets 5 stars from me for making this disappointing defective unit right.
