I bought this Noco and keep it in my truck. No complaints at all. Thing will jump start a virtually dead battery. Truck has the 8.1L gas engine.

I got the DBpower from amazon. Claims will start up to 6.5L gas. comes is a small carrying pouch along with a whole bunch of adapters to charge cellphone or laptop batteries as well.

Had a jeep with a complete dead battery and used it and it started right up. Now I have two of them.

^ X2 ; I also got a Noco for this wheeling season.

I'll bet the GB150 must be a beast if my GB70 is as powerful and useful as it has been this first wheeling season. I use it for more than I imagined. When daughter & I go w/ our club rides each month, we use it in tent to power fans, our phones as we sleep, laptops & still it runs my Viair 400p compressor to air up and also can jump the Jeeps 40, 50 or more times than I can use.
Another surprise use was running my rock lights ; I can power my 12v Lux RGB monster rocklights with the thing if need be.

They look rather expensive but they wind-up being worth it.

I got one of these at a gift. works ok if your battery is not completely dead. Something about how it discharges quickly to jump start it has to have some power coming in or it never sends the charge. It is like it never knows you turned the key. I would not buy again due to this.
