JUMPR: recharge your phone or jumpstart your car

April 24, 2014

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.

    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.
