Hello All, I was looking for a Car Jump Starter for a while after missing out on couple of FPs but then I saw this Winplus Car Jump Starter being discounted by $10 and it's Costco. If something goes wrong you're backed 😊

Hopefully it'll help someone

Is this a good deal? I am looking for one. Main question is do people think it is good because it is from Costco so easy returns any time if it goes bad?

It's sold for $75 everywhere else. I read and saw some videos that it performs good. Mentioned Costco because of their quality and reliability. I bought one for myself for spare and not to return


TD??

Basically this thing has enough amperage (200) to only start 4 cylinder GAS engines. Won't come close to starting a diesel or larger gas engines.

As mentioned by an earlier poster, this unit does not come close to starting a engine with more then 4 cylinders, tried starting an 8 cylinder engine and it didn't even come close to starting it.

All it can do was turn the engine twice and it stopped cranking engine, the unit then went into beeping mode. That brings me to the written manual and very poor graphics. My unit even fully charged and connected properly showed the green and red light blinking according to the the lights, that indicated it was OK/charge power bank.

Before I tried staring my truck it showed 4 solid blue lights indicating fully charged.

I would not recommend this unit, specially in an emergency situation. Totally unreliable.
