Features
  • This Schumacher Power Jump-Pack is manufactured to include an internal charger. A simple household extension cord is used to power the internal charger. Plug the extension cord into an outlet, and connect the cord into the receptacle on the base unit to charge.
  • One of the safety features built into this unit is a positive connection solenoid. Simply put, the clamps will not arc or spark, until being placed on a battery. This feature alleviates the concern for arcing and sparking until there is a connection at the battery.
Comments
Includes docking station. Just rest the Schumacher IPD-1800 in its included docking tray, and it will charge up. There is also no worry of overcharge, as the built in charger will go into float mode when the battery is full. Your Jump Starter pack will never overcharge with this simple setup. * Flat Rate shipping is for the lower 48 states only.

Pros: Can jump start your car in an emergency as long as you are home where it is on the charger.

Cons: Battery must be at home on the charger. How is this an emergency on the road? I have two units like this. They are both dead and useless. If you put them in your trunk so that you have it with you when there is an emergency and don't remember to charge it every 4 months, then it is dead when you need it. Also when you let it drain down it ruins the battery and will not take another charge.

Other Thoughts: It’s only an 18 amp lead acid battery inside. If it delivers the necessary current to start a car, lets say 320 amps, how long will the battery be able to deliver that much starting time exactly in this role?

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I received the jump battery four years ago as my 46th birthday gift. I loved the beauty of its look and the 500 amp label on the front of the easy carrying case. I used it for the first time in 2008 to jump my Craftsman snow plow but fail. So I kept it around to use for the power invertor at camp and around the house. I eventually called the company and the tech said, the dead battery must have 4 or 5 volts in it to activate their battery jumper. So I was perplexed by the comment and thought I must be having dead batteries although I do not believe my batteries completely drained to zero volts. I finally figured out last night that this is not the case. The product was dead on arrival. What ever safety circuit that monitor the 4 volts was dead from the factory. So I bypass the circuit and in 2012 for the first time I got some use out of this gift. It also mean, I will not buy this brand.
