There is simply nothing worse than getting stuck somewhere with a dead car battery. It can be a trying and even a scary experience to be caught with a dead battery. The Duracell DPP-600HD Powerpack 600 Jump Starter and Emergency Power Source with Radio is the perfect way to feel confident that no matter where you are you will have the ability to start your vehicle, even if the battery is completely dead.

This Duracell Powerpack offers a non-spillage and sealed 28 amp hour AGM battery that is capable of jump starting cars with up to 8 cylinder engine capacities. Alligator clamps for connecting to the car’s battery are also included.

This powerpack is sitting at 3.5 stars out of 5 after 267 reviews; 175 of those reviews were 4 star or above. Some reviewers seemed to get a defective package out of the box, producing a bad review. When buying an important product such as an emergency jump starter for your car, do your research and make sure you purchase exactly what you need.

I will say that the Xantrex 852-2000 XPower 600 HD Powerpack gets 4 stars out of 5 after 127 reviews.

Emergency Power Source with Radio

The Duracell DPP-600HD Powerpack 600 Jump Starter and Emergency Power Source with Radio does more than just jump an dead car battery. It also features 3 three-pronged AC outlets which provide 480 watt continuous (600-watt peak) power for multiple devices, including tools and appliances.

This powerpack jump starter also has a DC outlet to recharge the unit or power external devices. Additional features include a built-in 600 watt power inverter with heat and overload protection and reverse polarity detection. This helps the device work no matter what. A 5 watt flashlight is included as part of the device, which can come in handy as well. The unit’s built-in AM/FM radio and digital alarm clocks are added bonuses.

The Duracell DPP-600HD Powerpack 600 Jump Starter and Emergency Power Source with Radio weighs 31.2 pounds and measures 0.8 x 2 x 1.3 inches for easy storage. This makes it a heavy duty current generator that is small enough to be portable. The device provides more than just an on the go power source and radio, it also provides peace of mind because you always know you will have power when you need it.

These Powerpacks are not only good for giving your car that much needed jump start, they are also great to bring along when camping. The units are strong enough to run power tools and also allow you to operate some of your comforts from home; as in a portable cooler or a laptop. On top of all that you can get a 12 volt solar panel to keep your power source charged if you are going to be away from home for an extended period of time.

Make sure you read up on the use of Solar Panels with your charger, the amps and/or watts must be within the correct parameters.
