Giveaway: Chamberlain Portable Jump Starter

Chamberlain Portable Jump Starter – About 5 years ago, there was a story in the news about a family stranded in the middle of nowhere in a snowstorm at night.  Their vehicle was immobilized and the nearest town was miles away.  With no cell service, the father decided to seek help on foot and braved the cold weather.  The vehicle was discovered in the morning underneath a few feet of snow with the family cold, thirsty and hungry.  As for the father, he was found dead, not even a half mile away covered in snow.

I love to take my family on adventures and this incident could have easily happened to us.  Now I carry a backpack with food, water, a flashlight, space blankets, and other things that can help us survive just in case we get stranded.  I also have a jumper cable in my vehicle, but what if there are no other vehicles to provide a jump?  Introducing the Chamberlain Jump Starter; this small device can jump start your vehicle up to 20 times on a single charge!  It’s so small that it can fit in your glove box.  Stack two iPhone 6’s and this has the same footprint as the Chamberlain Portable Jump Starter.

This jump starter is safe and very easy to use.  Simply connect the jumper cables (included) to the battery terminals, plug in the jumper cables to the Chamberlain jump starter, and turn the ignition key to start.  It has an integrated flashlight so you can find the battery terminals with ease.  The flashlight can even be made to strobe “SOS” if you need to attract help or warn other vehicles. 

The device also has a plug in for devices that use USB 1.0 and USB 2.1.  This is an ideal cell phone charger if there are no other options to charge your device.  An LCD screen also tells you how much charge you have left.  Once the Chamberlain Jump Starter needs to be recharged, it can be plugged into an electrical socket with an AC charger or into your vehicle’s 12V socket.  As you can see, this device is simply a must-have for the traveler who uses a battery in their vehicle whether it be a car, truck, RV, ATV, and even a motorcycle.

Available for purchase at Target and on their website.

Bottom Line – Protect yourself and your family when travelling.  Enjoy your adventures, and should you need a jump, need to charge your cell phone, or light up a dark area, your Chamberlain Jump Starter will bail you out.  Visit Chamberlain for other innovative products!
