Jumpr – cool pocket friendly phone charger can jump start your car as well

jumpr2

Who says that big is the only beautiful in town? We’re used to seeing big chunky battery chargers for cars in our local repair shops and online, and they’re typically a lot of money too. Not that they don’t work, but carrying them around for an emergency can be rather a hassle.

Not so Jumpr. This tiny battery charger is no bigger than a standard smartphone, and in fact is perfectly at home charging up any tablet or phone via the USB outlet. But the standout functionality comes when you need to get your car going and you don’t have a friend to help out.

Just pop the hood, connect the cables to the red and black terminals, and you’ll be good to go in the turn of a key. Hopefully. The secret behind this apparent miracle is the fact that the charger is actually using lithium polymer rather than lithium ion, which means it can deliver a peak output of 12V at 300 amps. Which should be enough to jump start most car batteries.

The 6000mAh battery pack will also offer enough juice to keep your tablet or phone charged up several times over, and it only weighs 7 ounces. The product is available now on pre-order for $69.99.
