One of the worst things to happen to a driver besides an accident, a flat tire, or a speeding ticket, is a dead battery. They are time-consuming, and usually require more than one car to be involved in taking care of it. Nowadays when you try to get help from other motorists, they think your panhandling even before you tell them what you need, and make up their minds to automatically say no before you even explain. I have been told more than once “Sorry, I do not have any money” when all I needed was a jump start.

Dead batteries happen at the worst of times and are never fun. My biggest fear is that I will be out in the middle of nowhere, with no phone and no one close enough to walk to and my cars battery will die. I have had mine die at the drive-in movies, sitting in front of the social security office, at home, and so many other places. It is not even funny at this point how frequently it has happened.

Thankfully my friends at SNAN have a solution that is priced right and offers real peace of mind in an otherwise troubling situation.

Not only will this device start your car, but it has a powerful emergency flashlight and can power for cell phone battery as well. Using it is simple, and the large battery size means I have power when I need it.

As a backup battery for your phone or tablet, it is great. There are two USB plugins perfect for multiple devices. In addition, you have the flashlight. It has a strong beam and a fairly large lens size. You can use it to do most anything you need in the dark, including signaling for help should you need it. Besides all of this, there is the jump starting ability that sets this device apart from others.

I have used another car battery jump starter and loved it. This one is so simple anyone can use it, and I love it. All you need to do is plug in the attachment for the jumper cables, and then connect them to the car. Red always goes to the + and black always goes to the -. If you’re not sure which is which, please use the flashlight to see which is which. (One note, do not rely on the cable color connected to the battery. On rare occasions, the previous owner of the car you are driving may use a cable that is not the correct color. Connecting the device the wrong way is not good and could result in injury to you and your battery)

There are no buttons to push and it takes less than 30 seconds to get everything done. Read all of the included instructions prior to your first use, and as a refresher after that. Once you’re done, everything fits into the carrying case provided for easy storage.

I find that having a portable car battery charger to be a great addition to your car. You may never have to use it, but should you need it, you can get back on the road in no time as opposed to waiting for hours for another person to come along and help you out.
