I have a Diehard 1100 that does have a compressor and inflator. I actually needed it once, and it started my small block like nothing. Holds a charge for quite awhile too. Fairly compact, I store in under my rear seat. Best 99 bucks I ever spent.

Interstate Battery sells this unit and replacement batteries for it. Will start a diesel truck no problem. Commercial grade. 1700 amp. If you want a good one here it is.

Isn't the secret to a good jump starter just the battery that's inside?

Bought a Century 1000A power pack from Sams from over 12 yrs ago. Holds a charge for months (when forgotten to keep freshened up), jumped every dead battery thrown at it, and works great as a power pack running a fan all nite long. Even used it to power a 12v TV/VCR to watch movies.

No air compressor, no flashlight, no frilly extras. paid right at $60 then. Still going strong today

It might be luck as I got a good one. Use it almost everyday for 1.5 years now. Stanley - bought it at Sams Club. This pak has 900 Peak battery amps, a built in tire compressor with gauge, flashlite, USB port, battery status check lites.

Price 49 dollars. By far no other pak has come close in the price range from 150 and down for me. I also bought 2 more just recently at Sams Club. I never had any luck with Sears Die hard paks but they were not the 1100 Amp unit - the 2 below that pak.

Also I watch how I charge it. Don't drain it completely and charge it to full everytime and once its fully charge do not leave on charge.

This Stanley pak has started 3 different boats with dead batteries and filled 5 completely flat trailer tires to 50 psi without a problem on its fully charge in one day and could do more.

The ones from Sams were pretty good, used to start my ford diesel in the dead of winter, hell after a few years, I dropped it and the case was cracked in half, I had left it in the bed of the truck for a month or so, and it charged right up and still started the boat, the truck and anything else. I also have the die hard with the compressor and the light, they seem to work great and have plenty of power to start anything, butt, if you screw up charging it, or abuse it in the least, it will take a crap on you.
