#7 Best Portable Jump Starter under $100

It happens to anybody. Car lights left overnight and car won't start the next day. What to do? Wave a car and ask if they could jump start your car. Yeah, that is easy to do for us women.

The ultra cool jumper also features a flashlight to aid in nighttime and other emergency jump starting situations.
