Read up on this last time a clearance thread was put up.

Portability not so great (with such a big footprint and weighing over 22 lbs.) is my reason to pass on it. Of course, that is why these claim 1200A. I also read many complaints about the frills on this so read the reviews or find the last thread on this.

Strong SLA unit (depending on how long on their shelves) should be a good jumper box for at home.

I am so happy with the JNC-660 at my disposal. If I had no SLA solution I would likely grab one for in the garage.

My 5 month-old, little-bitty jump box (you know the style) is not cutting it. Working on obtaining a warranty replacement. Properly used, stored, blah, blah, blah.

These also use acid battery (the heavy weight). They don't last long. Max is like 2 years if you baby it, else it's one season.

I like that it come with AC and compressor.

Any mod to have it use 18650 battery instead of the acid?

as this keeps coming up, don't spend $70 on a sealed-lead-acid ancient tech

wait for a quality lithium deal, especially if you are in a hot/cold climate and it will sit in your cart for long time uncharged

Lead Acid or AGM? According to Amazon it is AGM

My personal experience with several different Schumer products is they are junk. Cable ends break off after very little use. I wouldn't buy one no matter how cheap. Just one person's 2 cents.

Thanks. Looks like this item is being discontinued and the "non-stock" status for most stores was throwing my script off.

Updated inventory and pricing can be found here:
http://www.sharecsv.com/s/1003d34...569111.csv

422 stores total with stock and below $140, 391 stores at $70.

I used the term "acid" in general. AGM battery does have acid.

18650 is Lithium so a much better storage.
