No, Men's Wearhouse only carries garments and related accessories. They do not carry gadgets or anything of the sort.

This is a Costco deal.
You just be kidding 😜 where did you see the men's? He asked if it was avao6 at the costco store aka costco warehouse!

I used this to jump start my sisters caddy when it had been sitting in my cold trunk all winter, at least 8 months from the most recent charge. Was impressed.

Does it have the costco return any time warranty? that's the real beauty..

(small) cars usually require about 250? cranking amps to start..

and often when you use it your battery is only slightly low..

often times the cables aren't rated high enough for the bigger listed lithium jump starters..

these things tend to go bad on me.. so if it has the costco lifetiime warranty...i have to give it some serious thought.. I've had 3. 1 quit, 1 lost, and 1 i dropped, and it still worked for a while.. but i think it's done now... lately i run around with a spare battery lol

Costco does not have a "lifetime warranty".

They have a generous return policy that some types of people abuse by treating it like a "lifetime warranty", which will eventually ruin it for everyone.

My 8 cylinder beast would laugh at this. I picked up the monstrously heavy 1200 peak amp Schumacher for $70 on clearance at Lowes a couple of weeks ago.

These lithium things only assist in starting batteries that still have some reasonable charge, not drained ones,

depends...which device. The NOCO one that I have boosted my Camry's 8yr old Yellow Top that's been idle for 2 months. Had to use the override button since it didn't detect any voltage. The Battery is beyond dead - not even a 1hr drive will charge it back up. Need to put it on a charger or replace it.

I had this one and had to return it because on two occasions when my batteries died (once in Mazda5 and once in Sienna), it failed to start the cars. It worked once when I used it immediately after recharging to 100%, but it could only handle one application and it would not work after a full charge once it was in a car for a couple of weeks. Totally unreliable model. I have a couple of different brands now and they work a lot better than this one.

This battery jump starter is weak. It's not strong enough to jump start car with group 24/35 battery such as a Toyota Sienna, Subaru Outback...good enough maybe to jump start Nissan Cube.
My 2.0lt GTI has a Group 48, >900A battery speced...don't think it really pulls nearly that much tho to start, this is just the maximum rating for the battery, not what you need just to crank the engine.

My 2.5lt Mazda has a smaller group, less Amp battery...and I would think it is harder to crank (larger engine, much higher compression) and has way more electronics, still manages fine.

AFAIK most "reasonable" gasoline engines would crank with 400A, most 4cyl could go with half that, and this is what these guys designed for.

Might not be viable with a I high performance, high compression gas V8, and will probably be really hard to do it with a larger displacement diesel engine, but I would hope that most cars will have little issues. Ppl already commented on having success with BMW X5 and such.

I have a 2013 Honda Pilot, jumped it with this multiple times before charging the jumper again.

I jump started my Toyota which uses a group 35 battery.

Surprise!

When you say weak, do you mean that it isn't even enough to get the motor to turn over? I tried one of these on my Lexus RX300 and it started up, cranked once and died. Is that an issue with the power/amperage of the pack or the state of my car battery? TIA.
