Revive a dead car battery with this powerful jump-starter, $80 off right now

A dead battery can ruin your whole day. And depending on where your car is parked when it happens (garage, parking lot, etc.), you might have trouble bringing another car close enough for a traditional jump-start — assuming there's even a good Samaritan close by.

Problem solved: You can be on your way in minutes if you have a portable jump starter, which clamps onto your car battery for a near-instant rescue. And if you're going to get one, go big: In my experience, lower-capacity starters can't always handle today's big batteries. My choice? The Gooloo GT3000 Jump Starter Power Bank, which is now $80 off on Amazon with the on-page coupon.

The GT3000 is a charge-it-and-forget-it device, able to "stand by" for up to 24 months, according to Gooloo. That means you're unlikely to discover that your jump-starter's battery is as dead as your car battery. However, it doesn't come with an AC adapter, so you'll need to supply your own or charge it using your car's power port. (It does include an adapter for that.)

What I love about this is the simplicity: Connect the red and black cables to your car battery's terminals, wait for the GT3000's display to show "ready," then start the car. This not only takes the guesswork out of it but also provides a safer solution than traditional jumper cables. (I'm always convinced I'm going to blow up both cars.)

And speaking of safe, the starter includes a wealth of protections, including over-charge, over-voltage, short-circuit and so on. It also has a built-in 400-lumens flashlight (because it will inevitably be the dead of night when your car needs a jump)

Icing on the cake: The GT3000 doubles as a power bank, with two USB Type-A and one USB-C ports for charging everything from your phone to your laptop. (It's capable of 65-watt charging for MacBooks and similar laptops.)

I own a GT3000, and while I haven't yet had the opportunity to jump a vehicle with it, I definitely like having it close at hand. Curiously, the included carrying pouch is just a hair too small to close all the way with everything packed inside. And it's a bit annoying to have to hold the power button for 10 full seconds to turn the unit off.

Those minor issues aside, this is definitely something that every car or truck owner should consider getting.
