How the hell is this 94% upvoted. This isn't a service Uber provides, Ubers don't use a traditional metering service it only takes a few minutes to jump a car, the uber you order might not be able to jump your car if they don't have cables, their car can't jump cars, or if they could just say no.

Anytime I see someone with the hood up on there car just looking around. I ask if they need a jump. I was filling up my windshield fluid the other day someone stopped and asked if I needed a jump.

Local police departments might jump cars through their non emergency number. This will vary department-department and hour-hour if they do since it's low on their list on priorities. But some departments will Protect & Serve.

Here's a real LPT:

Buy a proper 500amp jump starter that doubles as a tire pump and massive back up battery for phones. And you won't need to rely on cellular service, AAA, Uber, or a random act of kindness to save your ass when you're stranded. (Some even have a DC converter with adapters to directly power laptops/DVD players so you could glamp with it. I just linked the first Amazon link.)

u/deader115 · 11 pointsr/AskReddit

Maybe it's just because I am not a hands-on kinda guy, but I would never define jump starting as being trickier than tire changing.

That being said, if you can afford a charger pack that you can keep in your trunk, those things are amazing. If you keep it charged, you can jump a car without needing a second car, and they usually come with other features, depending on the model and battery strength. I've had ones with small air compressors in them (to fill a tire), emergency lights, and an AC outlet. They can be pricey but they're great for a car emergency kit.

Edit: Something like this which I just pulled up on Amazon arbitrarily.

Stanley J5C09 1000 Peak Amp Jump Starter with Compressor

u/RealCoolDad · 7 pointsr/nova

Everyone in the DMV should own a portable jumpstarter/air compressor

STANLEY J5C09 Jump Starter: 1000 Peak/500 Instant Amps, 120 PSI Air Compressor

u/LurkmasterBot · 7 pointsr/pokemongo

Should really just get one of those batteries to jump cars which conveniently has a USB out:

u/abusche · 5 pointsr/Cartalk

or, just ride it out. one of these is a good idea to have around anyway (not sure what your winters are like). one day, you'll need it. and when you do, its time for a new battery.

u/nagurski03 · 4 pointsr/VEDC

> Portable jump packs will inevitably stop working after a year or two

I got [one of these monsters] ( back in 2015 and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

I used to have a Firebird with constant electrical problems and so I've used it to start that car easily a hundred times.

u/tasmanian101 · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Actually someone did. Almost every university security has a jump-start/air pump combo unit. They regularly have to jumpstart peoples cars

u/iaalaughlin · 3 pointsr/camping

Jump starter with compressor. I have one made by Stanley (not the below linked one though, they don't make mine anymore.)

u/chipperjatl · 2 pointsr/VEDC

This is the number one item on my wish list, although I have been looking at this Stanley Here. They both seem to have really good reviews.

Edit: the one I linked to only has DC/USB power. So that may not cover your needs.

u/ludlology · 2 pointsr/phoenix

The one I bought was a traditional 120v compressor for around the house, but I also keep one of these in my car. It's saved me from multiple flats and two dead batteries.

u/gauderio · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

Instead of a backup battery, I wonder if this works. I have it on my ICE cars.

u/ManThatsReallyJewish · 2 pointsr/telescopes

Yeah, I bought something similar to this. It works extremely well for about 6 hours a night. The mount comes with a DC plug out of the box, but for about $30 you can get the AC adapter(most I've seen recommend the 5amp version). Have the 2.5amp model myself, but it's never been used as it was an attempt to remedy my blown board.

The power cable from the Dec motor to the main board and the handset cable are the only RJ9 connectors you'll need to plug in to get it started. From the diagram it's A, B, and E are all. But the other end of B will go into your Dec motor.

u/Frogblast1 · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

My experience with solar panels is that they are a waste of time, due to the slow charging, even when left directly in the sun all day on a clear day.

For backpacking, a 0.5-1lb battery pack will keep your phone running for two weeks if you are judicious with your use.

For car camping, I use a car battery / compressor / jump start device I bought from costco (something like [this])( It handles flat tires, and it'll recharge any number of mobile gadgets more times than could possibly matter, and do so quickly.

Both solutions were dramatically cheaper than solar panels.

u/Bing803 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

We bring a couple portable electric generators ($70 or more on amazon depending on the size/power you want) and use it to power our regular computer speakers or whatever speakers we have. Plus side to that is we can use the generators to power anything we need all weekend and it comes with a jumpstarter for your car and air compressor.

u/davidverner · 2 pointsr/gopro

My solution is skeleton housing with then use cigarette lighter USB charger plugged into jump battery for car or truck^overkill . You can do a time laps for over a day depending on the size of jump battery you use.

u/elementsofevan · 2 pointsr/preppers

You can get better ones for cheaper.

1000 peak amps

120 psi Air compressor

Led lamp

Made by a company that has a reputation and the product has reviews

$70 (10 bucks cheaper)

They also sell a 700 peak amp one with all the same features which is $40

u/Thameus · 2 pointsr/answers

You could create a device like that, but you'd want it to have its own battery to act as a giant DC capacitor, absorbing the current transient created by cranking. This would be much easier on your mains and breakers.

u/RoflPost · 2 pointsr/twincitiessocial

Are you serious?! I actually live up here, and I could have helped, but nooooooooooooo, somebody had to see this before me and be helpful.

But on a serious note, be extra careful about draining your battery during the winter. A completely dead car battery can freeze solid, rendering it dead forever. Also, a great investment is a portable jump pack. It has saved me endless times, as I am a person who leaves their lights on all the time.

u/ISheader · 2 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

I got this one almost 4 years ago now and it's done a great job. It isn't exact in the air pressure reading but I use an external gauge anyway

u/TopEchelonEDM · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I've got a few suggestions, mainly for the car.

Wireless Onboard Diagnostics

Android Compatible ($70)

iPhone Compatible ($100)

Remote Starter Kit (Sale: $47 Retail $200) Unless he knows how to install it, I'd advise having it installed professionally.

Car Jumpstart Kit With Air Compressor (Sale: $80 Retail $100)

Dull knives? Make 'em sharp! Knife Sharpener (Sale: $24 Retail: $40)

Finally, since a GoPro is too pricey, try a cheaper version, the Monoprice MHD Action Camera (Sale: $104 Retail: $200) Based on the reviews, it seems like it's perpetually on sale.

I may do more sleuthing, but that's what I got so far!

u/SystemFolder · 2 pointsr/prius

Which is why I carry this. It can not only jump other people, but it can safely jump my Prius as well. It’s actually very easy to jump start a Prius. The only tools required are a jump starter, or jumper cables and another car.

u/wingwalker · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Instant jump start battery with air compressor. Never leave home without one.

u/XxChroniclesxX · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I carry one of these battery buddies/mini compressors. It has a usb plug on it so I can also charge devices as needed. Highly recommend.

STANLEY J5C09 Power Station Jump Starter: 1000 Peak/500 Instant Amps, 120 PSI Air Compressor, Battery Clamps

u/emlyman · 2 pointsr/Coachella

Yeah that makes the most sense I think. Thanks for the info! I have one of those external battery packs you can use to jump cars (this one). Normally we use it for phones + some other misc. electronics but I'll have to test it out and see how much I can get out of it charging my laptop.

u/mc_nibbles · 1 pointr/cars

why do you need them all in one?

There's a Stanley jumpstarter/compressor, and here's an off brand (I think) fast charger.

Together they're $107, with free shipping if you have prime (it may also be free economy shipping too).

u/baltakatei · 1 pointr/MLPLounge

A 12-volt emergency battery booster for starting a car with a dead battery.

Edit: Like this one

u/steve9207 · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

The jumper pack can be very useful, as long as you remember to recharge it every month or two (without any usage in that time).

I have a pretty new battery, < 1 year old, so we put it in my wife's car, and she had to use it when her battery died.

Here's the one we've got. It also has a little air compressor for filling your tires plus USB ports and a cigarette lighter. Well worth the $80 for the times you may need any of those features, yet small enough and you don't need a second person / car.

u/D_Livs · 1 pointr/Economics
u/Nun-Chunks · 1 pointr/festivals

If you're set on solar, then this isn't for you. But i have brought this to every fest i've gone to and its never ran out of juice. I use external batteries and as my phone charger as well. It also starts dead cars and can be charged (somewhat) if hooked up to a running car's battery for a while.

u/SilverManGold · 1 pointr/motorcycles

You can but the car needs to be off. I use a portable jump starter myself. You can look at the battery or use a multimeter to check the voltage.

u/Bizzaroworld725 · 1 pointr/camping

I'm not sure about the reservations but I'm gonna suggest one of these [] for the air mattress and to keep in the car. I have a similar one and that with a tire plug kit has save my @$$ more than once

u/njott · 1 pointr/pics

bitch get om my level.. but really I have never regretted buying one of these.

My Honda doesn't charge my phone if the car is off, fuck it plug it in this thing in the trunk.

Tires a little low? Don't need a big compressor I'll top it off

Lost power? Go to the car get the battery.. I can charge my phone 20 fuckin times (somebody do the math)

And most importantly never have to worry about a car battery dying on you

u/Ewing_Klipspringer · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thanks for running this contest, /u/Sp3cia1K !

Here's my list of 5, and I can guarantee that the first item I have listed is unbelievably useful for anyone with a car.

  1. Car jump starter - - You just plug this is in at home to have it charged, and it can jump start your car whenever your battery may be dead. It also has a built-in air compressor to help with a low/flat tire as well as USB and 12v power ports to charging any devices you have with you. My car battery has been having issues, and this could've really saved my ass.

  2. Mechanical V8 engine model kit - - I had one of these as a kid and absolutely loved building the thing. It has every moving part in an engine along with electric starter, LED spark plugs, and transparent valve covers (so you can see some of the movement). If you have the patience to build one, you'll adore it.

  3. Tech tool kit - - Ever want to do your own repairs on your computer or other electronics but you didn't have the proper tools? Look no further.

  4. Breakfast sandwhich maker - - This sweet thing lets you cook your egg, heat your meat, and toast your breat all at once with one appliance to have delicious breakfast on the fly.

  5. Daft Punk wall art - - If you love the robotic duo as much as I do, this thing would look stupendous on your wall.

STANLEY J5C09 Jump Starter: 1000 Peak/500 Instant Amps, 120 PSI Air Compressor

Buy it. Best purchase ever.

u/rareas · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

something like this

They are great if the power fails because you can charge your phone in your house and have it as a light.

u/Stuwey · 1 pointr/Austin

I have something like this

It has saved my ass several times and occasionally I can haul it nearby to help others. Its a little on the pricier side, but it can be quite handy.

u/sundrag · 1 pointr/CPAP

I run mine off a jump pack and an inverter, but I have only done it for one night. Your solution is much more elegant!

u/teknoanimal · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

If you are in a city you might be able to locate an auto supply store near by and sweet talk them helping you out. Or the might have something like this

u/el_boricua00 · 1 pointr/CarAV

You can use a battery, but I use a jump box. It supplies the 12v I need to power the head unit and has enough left over for me to wire up all the speakers and really give them hell before I install anything. It works great for testing any other accessories you're thinking of installing too.

u/FrontLeftFender · 1 pointr/SaltLakeCity

My car jumper has saved me a couple times. They're great. I'd only say that the one you linked is pretty small. For $10 more this one has 5x the capacity, higher peak output (jump bigger engines), and a pump. It also has a 12 volt output, a light, and a USB output to charge electronics. It is a lot bigger, though.

u/xrandx · 1 pointr/GoRVing

> Hello,
> I recently purchased this sucker, an '88 Falcon 190SLR built on a Ford E350. It is in quite remarkable condition

Diesel or gas? Say diesel, please for the love of god and engines.

> My intention's for me and my doggo to go across the US with it over the winter, using a mix of parks/motels

What breed? Many parks restrict larger breed dogs, particularly pits.

and the occasional bout of dry camping. The toilet and shower were taken out of it for more storage space (it was most recently driven from OR to Alaska and back last year), so I would not go too hardcore on the boondocking. (I thought about replacing the toilet at least, but i must admit to liking more storage.)

Get a portapooper. Parked where no one can see you, who cares? Even better/cheaper....a bumper dumper.

> I know I'll need a generator (and a hitch I suppose), and I intend to buy a used one locally. I'll probably wanna get some better locks or security on it too I suppose. I'll be working along the way, so I'll have my laptop with me, but that'll be the main power user.

If you aren't parked long, or have the time to wait, solar is sufficient to charge a laptop or you can charge it off the van alternator while driving. When I go out deep in the woods I carry one of these and charge it off an inverter while driving. It's great as you get both 12 volt DC from a cigarette lighter plug and USB

> A couple questions:
> I intend to visit some pretty damn cold places -- Vermont, Maine, the CO mountains. Am I big enough that I gotta have chains, or can I find some snow tires for it? Should I grab an engine block heater while I'm at it? Any particular experiences with camping out in the cold? I'll be on propane heat, and I'll look into some insulation I can stick on the windows/fantastic fan on the ceiling.

CA is the only place I'm aware where they will actually prevent you from traveling without chains. You might NEED them but probably won't be required to have them.

> Any suggestions on some better locks/security for this guy? Or should I bother?

No locks are going to keep out someone determined to get in. Chances are if someone is trying to break in they will ignore the locks and break a window. Best defense is don't have/show anything worth stealing.

> I'll also be around FL in Jan, my first time there in years. Given that this is prime season, would I need to reserve well in advance at any camp I wind up at?
> Anyone else have one of these and know of anything in particular I can expect to break midway?
> Thanks! (More q's will probably occur to me later, but you know how it goes.)

u/JohnnyBoySoprano · 1 pointr/Cartalk

Thanks so much for your reply. I do have another key and fob set. I'll just swap it with that one and test if it makes a difference. As for the alarm, I did not install anything in the car after it was purchased so I'm not sure if it comes with a factory installed alarm. I do notice that when the car is locked, there's a tiny led light blinking next to the windshield but I'm not sure if that means the car has an alarm system installed. Any easy way to verify this? As for when did it start, I would say about a week ago. So far it's happened twice and it doesn't happen everyday, but I'm trying to anticipate in case it's a battery issue. If that's the case, I'd rather replace it now than have the car leave me stranded in the middle of nowhere. In the meantime, I purchased this, just in case. Nothing else is acting strange.

u/DCashmoney · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

All-in-one emergency battery starter/air compressor/phone charger/flashlight. There are many brands but everyone should get one of these:

A rediculously invaluable tool for any car. Has saved me many times from awkwardly asking strangers for help or waiting around for a tow service. Especially useful if you live in a winter climate where battery life can be finicky.

u/Carl_Gordon_Jenkins · 1 pointr/lawncare

yeah I've already stopped. didn't realize it was definitely a bad idea. what are your thoughts on this?

I would charge the battery pack at home and bring it with me on the road when I need to charge the trimmer battery

u/celestialwolf · 1 pointr/AskReddit
  • Emergency flashlight with seatbelt cutter, glass punch, flashing beacon
  • A small amount of emergency food and water and basic first-aid items
  • A couple blankets (both for heat and keeping interior clean when hauling stuff)
  • Napkins, pens, cord to charge phone, power inverter (something like this)
  • Engine code reader, plus portable jump-starter with built-in light and air pump for longer or remote trips
  • Concealed handgun and extra mags (taken in with me when parked)
  • Cell phone for calling in emergencies or taking video/photos in case of confrontations or accidents
  • Ipod with all my music because the radio sucks
