Its list price is over $110, but you can get it at $60 (or even less). This is a bargain and a very helpful tool.

It charges quickly, holds a charge for months and is light and compact. Last summer my wife called to say she was first in a left turn lane on a busy expressway and her car stalled and would not start. I grabbed to JNC300XL where it had set for months without a charge and off I went. I connected it to her battery and it provided plenty of power to turn over her fair sized V6 engine and start the car. – H. Stewart

I bought a JNC300Xl a couple of months ago – it is AMAZING! Small, light and powerful enough to start my Ford Freestar (Windstar) with no problems. If your battery is very dead, wait a few minutes after hooking up the JNC300XL before you try to turn the ignition. – Michele Moore

Just to give you update, I have been using this product for more than a year now. I only had to charge it once. Its internal battery is just amazing if you’re only using this for a quick jump-start every once in a while. I have used it at least more than a dozen times and it has always worked flawlessly. I last charged it several months ago and it still shows that the internal battery has enough juice to go on (two green LEDs). – John Smith
