A Review of Schumacher XP2260 1200 Peak Amp Jump Starter

The Schumacher XP2260 1200 Peak Amp Jump Starter can power up your discharged battery at an affordable price. It is lighter than the Schumacher PSJ-2212, which comes with 2200 peak amps.

This unit is oh-so-heavy at 24 pounds. It’s not as portable as the other jump starters we’ve reviewed on this blog. Its dimensions are 12.6 x 12.4 x 12.2 inches so that means it can easily fit in your trunk. But what’s good about this is that it has an On/Off switch. It got a built-in charger for the charging of its internal battery. A LED indicator will show you if the battery needs to be charged. As with other jump starters, you cannot return this because it is considered hazmat.
