Battery Jump Starters (You should get one)

I’ve seen there have been several threads recently on replacing batteries. I highly recommend buying a portable battery jump starter. They really do come in handy.

I bought a Audew Battery Jumps Starter. It’s saved me from a dead battery several time. I highly recommend getting one. This is the one I currently have. Audew Portable Battery Jump Starter

I’ve seen another brand called Andeman. Looks identical to the Audew. Andeman Portable Battery Jump Starter
The only issue I had with it is that the “Boost” button that you need to push for a jump start is small and black. It’s almost invisible on the plug. It was a little frustrating looking for it the first time.

I’ve also seen several tow trucks carry the Noco brand Noco Portable Battery Jump Starters

If anyone else have any recommendations post them here.

I have an Audew as well...which I picked up on amazon a couple years back. I haven't had to use it yet...but I put it on the charger every three months as they recommend doing.

I have a Weego (I think it's this one Weego 44s Jump Starter | 440 Cranking Amps | Advanced Voltage Design) in each of our vehicles that I've had to use a few times. Even when I've had a dead battery in my own garage, sitting next to the other car, it's easier than dragging out the jumper cables. I got it mainly for when we're camping, and the odds of finding somebody to give you a jump in the middle of nowhere is near zero, but thankfully haven't needed it in that situation yet.

I have the good old jumper cables and an autowit supercap 2. I've never got to use the supercap yet but I'm going to test it out on an old 1980 sportscar that hasn't been started for 3 years in a couple weeks. might need a trickle to get some juice in the battery so it registers with the unit but I'm hoping it will start

the real test for all these jumpers is in -40*C weather when batteries are most likely to die. that's why I like the good old fashioned jumpers. you just need a second vehicle which sometimes isn't easy. portable ones are nice and for a battery that has recently died they can help get you going again quickly

My Miata has a race battery, so a jump starter is a necessity as it dies if not driven every few days or being on the tender. I use a Noco GB40 and it works great. I have never used it on the 4runner, but have no doubt that it would work.

100%. I did a ton of research and wanted something versatile for all power needs as well so I went with the GOOLOO GP4000 Jump Starter 4000A.

Supports fast charging and a USB Type-C charging port (5V/3A) and built-in light. Can jump multiple cars easily and has some built in protection.

I initially got the Noco but the GOOLOO was much better for my specific needs.

Good idea, but don't leave them in your vehicle in the winter. I left mine in my 4Runner, it froze and swelled up big, blowing off the case/cover. Lucky it didn't short and catch fire as Lithium batteries are want to do.

Out of curiosity. Does anyone know how much cold cranking amps a 6.5 diesel requires to jump start?

Thanks

Probably 650+, more is always better. My GOOLOO can do just about anything, NOCO would be awesome too.

I have a GB40 that sat in the back pocket of my 4Runner for 7 1/2 years. It was never really thought about or recharged. Then came the day when I had a dead battery. I pulled it out and it was still 80% charged. It had no problem starting up the 4Runner.

I have since used it three more times and did recharge it after the first use. They are so small and portable there is no excuse not to have one or something similar.

I bought a Noco GB70 about 3 or 4 years ago. I've never needed it for my car, but I've been able to help a other people a few times. The Noco zipper case is nice to have.

Agree. Bought one on Amazon years ago. My brother was in the market for one so I decided to give him mine and bought a Noco GB70. No complains.

Its like buying a winch, you end up using it for others and not your self so much.
