Clearly states what the "jump starter" is used for. It's small, storable, safe, easy to use and charges up fast out of the box. This is meant for quick starts IMO, but turned over a large engine no problem.

This was the only product I bought on Black Friday. Less than a week later my neighbor left her lights on all night and needed a jump. I tried this new Peak product and it was able only to get the engine to weakly turn over, but not to start. It didn't work and I'll return it.

Stay away - Charging port is will break

By Disappointed

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about HERCULINER Peak Jump Starter (PKC0J6):

This jump starter is sold under various names, not just Peak. You can tell by the look. Problem is the charging port, basically a two prong electrical plug. You are suppose to flip it out and plug in an extension cord (female end) to the plug. Problem is plug is cheap and will break with the slightest pressure. Once broken, even if you take the jump starter apart, you can't get into the sealed housing of the charging plug. You can probably salvage the sealed lead acid battery for another project, but that wasn't the point of buying this.

      The internal battery will not hold charge after a year at all. I opened up unit battery terminals very bad shape. Cost of replacement battery more than unit and difficult to find. Would not recommend this to anyone.

              I purchased the peak 600 amp charger in December, it has never worked as stated. upon contacting peak they stated that the unit is for 4 and 6 cylinder engines only. it does not work on any engines. also it does not state anywhere in the manual or on the box that is for small engines only. I e-mailed ace and urged them to drop all peak products. they are simply garbage. beware if you purchase ANY peak product.

                I bought this for my car, just in case. To carry with my four wheeler or motor cycle. I also bought it to charge an insulin pump in case of a power outage and hoped to be able to use it for my cpap sleap apnea device in case of a power outage. It has some good ideas but it wouldn't even kick over my motor cycle that sat all winter but has a new battery. It wouldn't charge once I tried to recharge it. The plug in to charge it is very uneasy to use and cheaply built.

                Comments about HERCULINER Peak Jump Starter (PKC0J6):

                Initially purchased for car but found very useful in jump-starting my rider mower. The charting 'port' is a two-prong AC 'plug' fixed to the unit, rotates to plug an AC extension cord. The port broke after only four chargings within a year. It is useless at this point and I have to find a recycling center to properly dispose of the lead-acid battery. The manufacturer needs to improve the charging port.
