Jump starting at full power
Vehicles are mainly started by joules and not the misconception of Peak amps. Starting time of an average vehicle is 1-3seconds, which makes the peak amps worthless. Battery boosters potential can be revealed with a consistent actual power output for a period of time.
‘Joules 3s’ Just as the number denoted 3; it means the actual amount of power delivered in 3seconds. Don’t be deceived by the high amperage ratings placed on jump starters, because amps without time and voltages is invalid.
NOCO Genius Boost functions with high displacement gas and diesel cars, trucks, boats, commercial vehicles, and equipment, and is safe on engines of any size.
Half in size but delivers more power
