For those of you out there who never had the ignominy of actually experiencing a dead battery in your vehicle simply because you did failed to turn off the headlights after you parked your car, good for you. As for the rest of the driving population out there, chances are we would have experienced a dead battery at least once in our lifetime, which is more of an inconvenience than anything else – unless there is a zombie apocalypse happening, of course. Well, the Jumpr from the folks over at JunoPower has the potential of being a lifesaver, where this ultimately portable battery pack has more than enough punch to be able to jump start a car, as well as power your smartphone, of course.
Needless to say, there are plenty of battery pack options out there in the market that would enable one to jump start a vehicle, but majority of these tend to be large and bulky beasts in their own right. The Jumpr in comparison, is an extremely svelte solution at just 7 ounces, where it measures all of 5.5 inches in length making it roughly the equivalent of that of a smartphone. Underneath the external chassis, one would find a 6,000 mAh battery that has a standard issue USB port to power up mobile devices, in addition to a 12-volt 150-300-amp output and jumping cables to cater for vehicles.
Bear in mind that this is not a cure all solution, since it would not be able to handle huge trucks, but generally speaking, it ought to play nice with the likes of four- and six-cylinder engines. There will also be an integrated LED flashlight that will help light the way should you happen to be stuck in a dark environment. Pre-orders for the Jumpr are being taken until May 1st at $69.99 a pop, where after that, the price would rise to $89.99.
