I forgot their YouTube name, but they're pretty popular, he did a test on several jump starters, the Noco ranked pretty low.

saw that video too, there was something obviously wrong with his unit... the video was nonsense. i've had a GB40 for years, it's a fantastic unit. jumps anything i throw at it, from a little tiny 1.5L i4 to a 350ci V8...

don't take everything you see from some guy with a YouTube channel to be the end-all-be-all. like everything else on the internet, take it all with a grain of salt... there's no analytical process here, just people randomly doing shit and throwing it up to get views/money.

His testing is pretty thorough though, do you leave yours in the car and do you live in a place where you have all 4 seasons? If a cheaper one works just as well, I don't see a point of buying a more expensive unit.

This jump starter performs very poorly. I'd choose another brand.
This Youtube video show the how bad it is comparing to other brands.

in the car, 100% of the time. only time it's not is when it's charging. NE winters and summers, haven't had a single issue.

to each his own though... just thought i'd throw out my experience with the product. if you want to go with something else, by all means, have at it.

stop posting this video, it's absolute nonsense, there's something wrong with his unit.

i've had mine for years, haven't had a single issue jumping small or large engines and even getting many jumps out of the unit in a day before a charge was needed on my 3.6L TL.

I agree that the video is not accurate. He must have a defective NOCO. I have the GB40 and one of those Chinese brand jump starters. Both sat in my garage untouched for several months. Just pulled both out. The Chinese jump starter was dead and the GB40 still has a full charge. Tested both a couple years ago when my car battery was dead and the NOCO was far superior.

Had a gb20 in one car, a gb40 in the other for years, just put a gb40 in the truck. Solid units, only time mine come out is to use or charge. Sitting for 6 months they are still at 75%.

NOCO absolutely destroys the cheap Amazon knock offs. The Amazon ones hold so little charge and drain fast. Had my NOCO in my car for over a year without charging, and it was >75% battery.

I have a GB40 and it has noticeably less jumping power than my three other off-brand variants that cost half as much, and this is on 4 cylinder engines. It might hold a charge longer for months in a trunk, but other than that I'm pretty disappointed for the price.

Yeah, I was pretty surprised by his results, and it put me back on the fence. I saw one used to jump a car in a Costco parking lot, though, which saved me unpacking my jumper cables. The guy pulled it from the back of his SUV and says he uses another frequently for his boat. So I was definitely surprised the reviewer's unit did so badly.

I use their battery chargers, but their jump starters are over priced for what they are. Better deals on highly rated jump start packs on amazon.

So you are saying we should just take your (random singleton anonymous poster w/ one data point) word for it ... but not the video proof (with all kinds of load tester, voltage meters, temperature controlled storage, etc.) coming from a YouTube channel that must have been useful enough to gather almost a million subscribers? O-kay!

[Video has half a million views: If it was a faulty unit, Noco would have sent the reviewer another unit to avoid bad publicity. If the measurement was flat out incorrect, Noco would have sued the guy and take the video down already.]
