[Amazon.ca] Portable battery and car starter

Been using a portable Car starter for some time since my car's old. as I was searching I came across this one. Probably will be picking it up for my parents as they need it for their car.

Looks like a decent deal and it has also a coupon as well.

So take a look.

I didn't downvote, but probably because the marketing on these product is a joke.

1500A ? Really... Over 12AWG cables ? That cable would burn faster than the filament in a fastblow fuse if you ever try to put 1500A over them
Have you seen the thickness of the battery cables in your car ? And even those won't do 1500A. OK the ones in your car, may get away with a momentary 1500A, but they'd be hot afterwards, But the thin cable they use on these, no way.

And leaving these in a car, to use on a super cold day, will often be useless, unless you are just borderline below threshold. Lithium batteries don't do very well in cold weather.

Mate.. these are emergency devices. I have used this once last year and it saved me a tow truck . I do not expect this one to spit out 1500A all the time .for me it should aid my almost dead battery .. 200A may just cut it . I have just one question to you.. Do you own one ? It is very easy to come up with assumptions. I do not dispute most of your claims, but it does what it is supposed to do , endured last winter with me . I have brains to top it up once every 6 months . I use this to power my portable tire inflator for my car, my bikes and my small raft. I stand by my support . This one has saved my back and I am sure it will save someone else's . Buy it or not , it is up to the individual and their needs. I bought them for 80+ $ this price is good .
