finally a lightweight portable emergency power source.
Pros: this thing is as good as having a full size spare tire keep it charged up and as long as you don't have a issue unrelated to a dead/weak battery you should be good to go, no waiting for roadside assistance (I used to have to take the blame from customers who had to wait a long time due to cold mornings hundreds of dead battery's and only 5-6 drivers to service customers trying to get to work before the sun came up) now you can have a practical way of dealing with dead battery not having to wait for help makes it worth every penny! I don't work in roadside assistance anymore I am retired but have one for the same reason you should get one eliminating the wait for help, I don't know how durable it is for everyday use as I would have tried it for service calls sorry fellow RA drivers if you buy one I can't tell you how long it would last jumping 20+ battery's a day ? but for general emergency use it's worth every penny I have used it twice on our Jeep Cherokee Laredo HO 4.0 and it starts like I just put a new battery in.
Cons: I wish they had these back in the 90's when I was a AAA roadside assistance driver we had to either use long heavy and clumsy cables that connected to a plug on the truck. or a homemade battery box that had a full size car battery in a case to preform jump starts.

Pros: Nice features, especially the 9v socket. It works well so far and definitely helps keep the cost of batteries down. You definitely have to check your batteries to make sure they aren't leaking. Standard alkalines can only be charged a limited number of times, but that's not the charger's fault.
Cons: Sliding the battery ground contact back could be a problem. It works but you have to be careful to do it correctly or there's a chance the ground bar will break off. I realize that sliding is necessary to accommodate the different battery sizes, but it is a weak point in an otherwise pretty nice unit. I took off 1 egg because of this.
Other Thoughts: As long as I'm careful with the ground contact and check to make sure the batteries aren't leaking, I believe the unit will be OK and pay for itself in battery cost savings in a year or so.
