Looks like that's the last one so pretty sure it will be gone by now.

You can't use a load of bread to boost your car. You could boost your carbs and push start it if ya got a manual.

A lot of the negative reviews from all the Li-ion units are typically from idiots who don't realize the limitations of an Li-ion battery. Extreme temperatures will kill them. Don't expect to leave these in your glove compartment in -40C weather, so they can be ready when your battery is drained. It will be too frozen to help you. You can leave it at home, at the office, or even carry it with you (in briefcase, backpack, jacket, etc..) if you want. You can leave the jump cable adapter portion in the car (that's fine), but the pack can't remain in the car, and expect it to work. +40C and -40C are just going to kill Li-ion packs.
For this reason, I just keep an older style SLA battery type charger in my trunk. Keep it charged on a monthly basis, and replace the internal battery every 4 or 5 years (it's a standard 12V18Ah as you typically find in many larger UPS devices). They are a little more forgiving in extreme temperatures.

The good thing with this Boostmi model is that it has a lithium iron phosphate battery and not the most common LiCoO2 (Li-Ion). More safety, more charging cycles, long shelf life....
