Jump start pack

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

With winter fast approaching and i will be leaving the car at work carpark for few days a week not used im preparing in case i need to jump the car.  Im not going to be able to keep the car on trickle charger so thinking of buying one of these packs.  Can anyone recommend these small lithium style packs that i could leave in the car.  So plenty to start a 535d but will hold the charge when not in use.

 

Saw this one seems to get decent reviews but wanted to know if anyone has something similar?

Thanks as normal..

I've got one and had it a few years now; great thing to have in the car and they work superbly when you need them

 

But; their prices have gone stupid as far as I can see

 

My pal has this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/NOCO-GB50-UltraSafe-Lithium-Gasoline/dp/B07MVY7K43/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=NOCO+Boost+XL+GB50+1500+Amp&qid=1628614047&quartzVehicle=121-1856&replacementKeywords=noco+boost+xl+gb50+amp&s=automotive&sr=1-4

 

He has a 335D and an E39 M5 FYI and they've worked perfectly with those cars

 

The one you've linked to isn't there any more FYI

Personally I'd want one that's higher; peace of mind etc

 

But as said; prices have sky rocketed!

I swapped out the original link as it was t working after I posted.  Since it was straight away I could still edit.

 

the original one was only like £42 and can’t find it now.

 

cheers

I know it's overkill for most of you but as I tend to do quite a bit of electrical work and have been caught out a few times I just bit on the NOCO Boost X GBX75 as it dropped £50 to the £190 Amazon warehouse price I had in my basket
