Whew, what a title. Honestly, I don't expect to really gain any SEO value with this blog or post. I do hope someone finds value in this post though. So if you find this because you aren't sure of purchasing this - the title is for you.
DBPower 600A - First Impressions
This post will be the unboxing and first impressions. The story - my car died. I walked down to the local Autozone to buy a jump pack. You know those huge, 20lb, packs you lug around?
Yea, that thing.
Anyways, I noticed they had small, lithium powered, jumpers. A technician at the dealer I use to work for had one. It worked quickly and was a lot more reliable than the jump pack style above. Unfortunately, they were sold out (I ended up ordering the DBPower pack the same day off of Amazon)
At the time of this writing, the "DBPOWER 600A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter" has 1,127 reviews with a 4.5/5 star rating, priced at only $69.99! I jumped on it obviously.
A nice feature is it's well packaged. Everything fits into the case provided, fairly easily might I say. Inside you'll find the "power bank", battery adapter, a wall charger, USB plugin, and a variety of accessories. I really have no idea what the other accessories do. I'll report back if I figure it out or if they are important.
Inside the case is a handy chart, it labels out battery percentage in accordance with engine size. If you keep it charge, you shouldn't run into any issues.
The front panel does have an LCD screen with digital battery percentage. It also lists voltage ratings and other useful information. As you can see, there is an output outlet, power button, 2 USB charge ports, input (to charge unit) and the On/Off switch. In the picture, I am holding open the rubber flap that covers the ports to the battery cables.
The unit does have a compass on the top, as well as a flashlight. Now, I don't quite know how to use the flashlight, but I'm pretty sure its a flashlight.
Overall the unit is well built. It feels expensive and sturdy. I wouldn't feel any discomfort dropping this. It's also light and portable which is a huge bonus. The DBPower 600A can be charged by a normal wall outlet or a car charger which is handy. I am looking forward to not using the unit - let's be honest, that means I have car issues. But, I feel secure having this unit sitting in my vehicle in any need of an emergency. I would recommend keeping one in your vehicle as well. You can pick it up on Amazon at the link below:
