    Are these any good? Thinking if so I may purchase a few. Small. Easy to use. Stick in equipment n trucks. But I'm looking for quick charge / jumper pack.

    Check out this video. Based on Joel’s review I purchased two units. They have yet to fail me when needed. We use them for our machines as well as trucks and cars. Amazon had them on sale last week for $68.59, so I purchased an additional one.

    Yeah, they're pretty good. However, there is a big difference between a charger and a jump pack.

    jump pak I realize but there a bigger unit and I am thinking that way in a utility tractor, skid, landscape equipment - small, bang for the size and just be more organized, efficient and ready in case we need it or someone else needs help.

    There are also much bigger lithium jump packs than that. I've got one that's a little bigger, and my wife has one that's about half that size. Each of them have started 4 cylinder cars with dead batteries several times. I think the bigger size should be ok to start a 6 cylinder truck. Not sure about an 8 or anything diesel, and they're certainly no good for 24V systems.

    Do you think the nocoGB40 will be close in starting power to this JNC660?

    The JNC660 is rated at 1700 amps. The GB40 is rated at 1000 amps. You would be better off with the GB70 which is rated at 2000 amps

    I went with the GB70 for myself.
    I did buy 3 GB40 too. X mas present for my dad. One in my wife's vehicle and just an extra in the shop. So far I like what I have seen.

    GB70s are in all the trucks and my personal vehicles. No more bulky jump box. Only drawback and this is a small one is you cant use it to power the ECM through the OBD2 port when changing batteries. So I still keep the old jumpbox at the shop. We got a group purchase at 219 ea off the GearWrench truck.
