Recent reviews are making me hesitant to buy this. Anyone own this?

I have owned three of these in the past, but none of them lasted more than a year or two. My last was a Battery Tender brand with a lithium battery... Because I have nothing smaller than a 6 cylinder engine, it is nearly useless for jump starting after 2 years. I'm pulling the trigger on this one, only because I'm buying it from sam's, and I'm purchasing the extended warranty because I expect to fall back on it within three years. The reviews run from one extreme to the other, so I am hoping that quality control is the worst issue with this model.

I bought 2 of these for my family about 3 years ago. They worked great to start with. I jumped a strangers car and filled my tires when the cold weather came. I ended up buying one for a friend as a gift. This last August, both stopped working for seemingly different reasons. One couldn't hold a charge and would die out when pumping air. It wouldn't even work when plugged into an outlet. The other one's tire pressure sensor doesn't work anymore, so that functionality is gone. I love the idea of these and they worked perfectly for a few years, but it seems like many people eventually run into the battery problem given how it's built.

Thank you. I agree, the extra $9 for the 3-year SquareTrade warranty on this item would be a wise choice.

The Battery Tender one was no good? I'm in the market for a small, lithium one and the reviews for that one seem to be overwhelmingly positive, and not fake reviews like all the chinese offbrands.

I just looked up my purchase of this, it was less than 2 years old last month when I tried to jump start my 6-cylinder 4.2 l trailblazer. It also never reaches full charge, going by its LED indicators. I dropped my Amazon review to one star. Because it claimed to have an AGM battery, and is considerably larger and heavier than many of those lithium jumpstarters you are referring to, I had hoped for better results from the Battery Tender 1200 amp over time. I'm surprised that it rates so we'll, maybe it's the same quality control problems as most other jump starters.
Update:. I was unaware that battery tender now markets a thousand amp lithium battery pack that is similar to other small lithium battery packs. It retails for less than the battery tender 1,000 amp AGM jump starter that I purchased 2 years ago. I would definitely buy the lithium battery pack over the agm, taking a chance that it is of better quality than the agm.

Oh, you're talking about that one. I was talking about the small, lithium Battery Tenders that come in 600, 800, 1000 Amps. All the big ones seem to have an issue with the batteries losing charge permanently without some sort of maintenance. At any rate, I'm personally looking for a tiny one because I just don't have that much room in my car and I have enough stuff shaking around in my small trunk. I decided to go with a small, lithium Stanley (PowerToGo) with a led screen from Walmart with decent reviews, some bad. I usually don't buy warranties, but I think I'm gonna buy it for this, it's only like $4 for 3 years.

Same here on extended warranties, but I decided to get a couple of these big Stanley s as gifts, along with the square trade add ons. The battery tender lithium jumpstarter is $90, which is $10 cheaper than their AGM model, but I suspect that the quality is no better than the noname brands selling for half as much. I will still keep jumper cables in each vehicle, though.
