There are plenty of external battery packs that allow you to recharge your phone while out and about. But one called JUMPR will take things a few steps further. To begin with, JUMPR sports an LED flashlight, but that will seem tame compared to what else it can do -- jumpstart your car.

The JUMPR battery is touted as being a "new twist on portable power" and it features a 6000 mAh battery that is "capable of jumping a completely dead car battery in minutes." JUMPR provides up to 12 volts of power at 300 Amps, which should be sufficient for "almost all" 4 or 6-cylinder engines.


The battery weighs in at 7 ounces, and sports measurements of 139 x 75 x 15mm. As you'll see from the images here in the post -- it is pretty close to the size of a smartphone. JUMPR charges using microUSB or a 12V car adapter and both cables are included with purchase. Also included are a set of proprietary jumper cables to jumpstart your case should the need arise.

Pre-orders are available at the moment, and the battery is expected to begin shipping on May 1st. The price is $89.99, however those who jump in during the pre-order period will be able to save $20.

        You can charge your phone with the USB 5V 2.1A port. the jump start port is only used for Cars.

    Mmm. I don’t need a flashlight and neither a car starter. I need a good strong battey to charge my devices. So I bought the Anker Astro 3E. It’s $39.99 and has 10000mAh. Just my 2 cents…

    One problem. You put 300 amps thru those little cables and they will melt like butter in a microwave.
