Looking for a good 12v jump box

Hi all,
Looking for a 12v jump box, as an insurance policy, that can handle our Triton V10 (6.8 litre gas). Have been looking at the portable lithiums with 1500-2000 amps, but most do not provide the cold crank amps. Prices are all over the board, as are the reviews. Anybody out there that can recommend a solid unit?

Thanks,
JoeB

They're all about the same.
But
If you buy one through
Hammacher schlemmer
There is a real live, no questions asked,
Life time warranty.

Have no experience with this one, but reads like it should be a good'un.

I've got one in the garage that'll spin the V-10 like it was a lawn mower engine.
I'll look it over in the morning, and get you a name off of it.

The V10 requires 750 Amps
That device provides 450 amps MAX.

It MAY work if your battery is not too dead, but "MAY work" is not what most people look for in a jump pack.

X2 on rugged Geek. Never had to use it on the MH but works great on a car and holds its charge for a year or more. Should work on MH and I take it with me when we travel.

I use the button on the dash for emergency jumps, If that don't work, I use a 2011 CR-V as a jump box. It uses a ready start jump box from wally world.

I have a HALO ACDC Bolt 58830 charger that we use when we need it to jump start out 2016 Axis 25.3. Had to use it this last winter when we went to the storage facility to run motorhome. the temp was close to zero degrees and the battery on the coach was completely dead and it turned over the V10 with no problem

EverStart

I have used this regularly. Like daily. Several times a day for over a year. Starts V10ís fine. Run slide rooms in and out trailer jacks up n down. Recharge it often.
The big clamps are much better than the smaller ones on most other boosters.
My $69:00 one is better than the $399.00 one at work. The compressor is better on the expensive one.
