Electric Schumacher Electric PSJ-1812 Jump Starter And Portable Power Unit
Schumacher is an established and trusted brand when it comes to jump-starters, whether models for light use or heavy-duty models for professionals. The Schumacher PSJ-1812 is directed more at the professional, being rated at a very powerful 1800 peak amps, with 280 cranking amps. This level of performance ensures that a dead battery will spring back to life in a matter of seconds, while the heavy gauge cables and multiple status lights ensure ease of use and reliability.
This battery jumper doesn’t come with a lot of features other than a 12-volt DC power outlet. Like with most jump-starters, you’ll also need to purchase a separate extension cord to charge the jumper. Luckily, the PSJ-1812 is not prone to suffering overcharging, something that tends to cause failure in many other models. Though the lack of safety features such as reverse polarity detection potentially make this unit unsuitable for those unfamiliar with electrical behavior, it’s a high-quality and high-performance option for those who understand how to use it safely.
