Review: Get your vehicle out of the 1800s

Hi Larry,

New vehicles aren’t built today without seatbelts, airbags and many other modern safety features designed to keep drivers and passengers safe. But most people still rely on a technology from the 1800s for one of the most common vehicle emergencies – dead batteries. Jumper cables were invented before vehicles, and today instead of waiting for another driver or roadside assistance to use this outdated solution now there is any easy way to DIY jumpstart a dead battery even if you know nothing about cars or trucks.

The Shell SH912 portable jump starter is powerful enough to revive batters in 6L gasoline and 2L diesel engines but safer than the average jumper cables with built-in spark protection and other safety features, so you don’t have to worry accidentally putting the wrong clamp on the wrong battery pole, touching the clamps together, or making one of the other mistakes that make people fret when jumping a vehicle. The jump starter also has a flashlight feature and can charge phones. It is now available on Amazon for $89.99<>.

Would you be interested in more information or a review unit?

Thank you,
