'Car cranked immediately': This compact jump starter is just $54 — that's more than 40% off

It's easy to take for granted your car's ability to start up when you turn the key — until one day, it doesn't. Then, you're left with two options: Try to get a friend to come over and give you a jump, or call a mechanic for help. Both can cost you time and money, two things no one has available these days. Turns out, there's another solution. You can invest in a portable car jump starter to keep around for a just-in-case situation. And, just for today, Amazon has slashed prices on top-rated Nexpow portable jump starters.

This dynamo holds enough juice to start up a 12V battery as many as 20 times. It also comes with a built-in flashlight, an SOS signal and much more.

Why is this a good deal?

First of all, a jump starter is a lot cheaper than calling a service like AAA to get you back on the road. Other, less-known jump starters are available for less, but if you want a brand you can trust, you'll pay at least $60, if not significantly more. Some go as high as $170. With this sweet 40% off discount, you walk away with a reliable jump starter and some extra cash in your pocket.

Why do I need this?

The Nexpow Car Battery Starter can easily start a 12V vehicle up to 30 times, along with trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, lawn mowers, and boats in just a few minutes. With 21800mAh capacity and two USB output ports, this device can fully charge your laptop, phone, tablet, and other devices quickly. The kit comes with an emergency jump starter, portable charger, LED flashlight, S.O.S lighting signal for help and dual USB quick charge.

It also has built-in safety protocols like reverse polarity protection, high-temperature protection, and much more. It makes these a lot easier to use than standard jumper cables, especially if you've ever hooked some up wrong. A smoking jump starter is not something anyone wants to see.

What reviewers say

"This product is compact, easy to charge, and comes with clear instructions for use. I don’t know too much about cars, but I am able to understand and follow the included instructions. We’ve already been able to use it a few times and it’s saved us time and hassle. Definitely worth the money!" raved one fan.

Another shared, "This a perfect little jumper for vehicle. I have only had to use it a couple of times and every time it has empresses me. It is light weight and compact, stores easily in the rear compartment of my truck. I have only had to charge it twice. The charge lasts a long time, even after jumping a vehicle. Good product with plenty of power."

"My jeep battery was dead so I got a chance to try out this jumper and it worked perfectly. The car cranked immediately. Today I was in the car waiting for my wife and my phone was getting low on charge so I plugged it in to this jumper and it charged well without having to turn my accessories switch on," wrote another spouse.

If you're looking for a jump starter with a bit more power, the Nexpow G17 is a solid choice. It can handle both gasoline and diesel engines, comes with loads of safety features, and can be fully charged in just 90 minutes.
