Amazon [amazon.com] has the Artek 600A Car Jump Starter for only $57.97 after you clip the $10.00 coupon on the item page. I bought this exact one about a year ago and love it so am picking up another for my wife's car. In that year I've only ever charged it once (the initial charge) and I've used it to jump three times: once on my van and twice on her Lexus, months apart. Even after the jumps and a year of sitting around it still shows an 84% charge right now! In addition to the jump start capabilities (up to 7.0L gas), you can also use it as an 18,000mAh portable power bank -- it has two USB ports and even comes with a multi-head USB cable for charging phones etc.

How well does this work under freezing conditions? I have noticed that when you leave these things in the trunk they completely lose charge.

Does the manual say anything about operating temperatures? Thanks OP

While the manual cautions against exposing it to temps over 149°F or below -4°F for safety reasons, it doesn't give any indication of battery life or operability in extreme temps, and I live in coastal Cali so unfortunately my personal experience probably won't help you any either. Sorry!

For me, there was a lightning deal AND a $10 coupon, so I paid $44.37 after tax. Thanks OP!

I have one like this thats been in the trunk for probably a year or more and it jump started my car yesterday. Low on charge now but that should answer your question. Was in Colorado so got pretty cold as well.

How long will this battery last before it has to get replaced? I think all batteries die eventually right?

I'm also getting a price of $44.37 after the $10 "extra savings" coupon. Considering the power of the unit, unlike many other less powerful jump packs on the market, this isn't a bad deal at all. This unit can get a good midsized engine cranking.

Since it's lithium you're going to get a much better life span out of it than say the bulky NiCad jump packs of the past. It'll most likely provide years of use as long as you're not abusing the battery. I wouldn't really worry about the longevity of the device.

If you jumped start your Lexus twice already, for sure you need a new battery.
It's good to have such a device to just start your car 2-3 times until you get to replace the battery, then for the next 3-4 years you won't need the device again.
Should you get one? I really don't know... but it may be like a condom: it is good to have one and not need than need and not have it!

Yes, you can jump a motorcycle. The motorcycle batteries are much smaller than can batteries, so no worries.......

Or you just have a wife who forgets to turn off the headlights (and refuses to the use "Auto" setting, grr!) while sitting in the car with the engine off but ACC on for two hours while listening to the Warriors game, lol!

But yeah, it's a 2012 Lexus and was still on it's original battery, so it really was due for a new one anyway. Since I already had this for the van, it came in very handy until we had a chance to finally replace the battery. Haven't needed it since, but am still very glad to have it, especially for the price.

I would seriously consider one with metal clamps/joints. Some of these plastic jointed ones have had issues with breakage, and freezing temps will challenge plastics durability regardless. And once the joint fails/breaks these are useless, and that would really suck if you're in below freezing weather needing a jump and now you're holding a broken clamp and with no way to use it. I live up in the Rocky mountains, fwiw.
