[Amazon.ca] NOCO Boost Plus GB40 Automotive Lithium Jump Starter - $112.97

noco-boost-plus-gb40-112-97-amazon-ca-2 ... #p34120363

This deal was posted very recently (see above link), but the thread was moved to expired deals (I assume because the price went up). The price then came back down so I put in a report in with the mods to move the old thread back to hot deals, but that was over 7 hours ago and it hasn't been done yet.



Here is a pretty good video if you want to see it in action.

I've had mine for a few years. No problems. Used it a few times on my v6 Outlander and other people's cars without issue. As with all batteries of this type, don't leave it in your car in the winter.

I'm sure that a warm noco unit is better than a cold one, but aren't lithium batteries much more resistant to extreme temperatures than other battery types? My AA Energizer lithium batteries say they have "superior performance" from -40 to 140 F.

In my experience using them at work in cordless tools and for solar sites, lithium batteries are not good at all in cold temperatures. The cold temperature rated solar ones have a heater built in to continue working.

Anyone experience with this? Would be nice to leave it in the car and know it'll work. Check it every few months to top up the charge.

I picked up a GB40 around black friday, and initially left it in my car all the time and topped it up occasionally. But one morning during a week of -40, car wouldn't start. Pulled out the GB 40 and when tried to turn it on, it gave a red light. Figured it was the cold, so brought it inside until it was warm enough/red light went away, and then it worked like a charm. I plan to leave it in my car during the spring to fall months, but for winter (in Saskatchewan if that helps), I keep it inside my house when I am home, and I take a backpack with me to work and keep it in there

It drops to this price every week or so on amazon. This is warm at best.

The words Saskatchewan and winter combine to make this the extreme use case!!!

I don’t have this mode but have a similar Gooloo unit bought off Amazon and I have left it in both our cars here in ottawa and they have worked fine for us this far. We do bring them inside monthly and top op the charge. That said, I also usually park in the garage so they don’t typically see a cold soak for more than 7 consecutive hours.

I guess in dire straits your body heat could get the unit warm enough to get you back on the road.

You could look at it that way, but according to 3C, except for a very short blip (probably one day or less) back in November, the last time the price has been any lower was back in 2017.

I’ve had the GB40 for several years as well. I leave it in the car all year and just charge it when I swap tires and haven’t had any issues. I live in Ottawa and park in the garage for reference. I’ve used it a few times, often to help out neighbours.

Noco makes great batter chargers. I have been using many for well over a decade.

Not so good jump starters tho...

I love Project Farm's review videos, but based on his findings, you'd think that the reviews from NOCO owners would be pretty mediocre, but the vast majority are very positive.

My Gooloo booster has always been in my car. It worked even when - 27C this winter. The first boost when cold doesn't always work but it heats the battery up and the second or third time will work.

I bring it in once every few weeks to charge it up.

Had mine since Nov 2015, always kept in the car - no problems. Bought about another 4 over the last couple years as gifts. You are very right, no issues. Tho Toronto doesn't go past -20C during the cold days often

Jumped a kid overnight at 2am who was worried because the taxis he found kept asking for money/$20. Took a minute and he was so happy. Been through the days of having an old car with a battery that dies after the last start, the amount of people who went out of their way to assist with jumping and no $ in return to help me. Been giving it back and ask everyone here does the same, all it takes is a single running electronic or a bad battery.

I wonder why gooloo is gone, they spent years building up the brand.
