    Buy into the new technology, and forget about the ones that have an old fashioned internal lead-acid battery.

    The modern ones like this one, are small, compact and double up as a USB charging device. I have one that starts my 5.0l V8 from dead...

    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    I recall John Cadogan wittering on about a new device that'll start your car with an almost flat battery...

    It may be a problem if your alternator cannot fully charge it on short journies

    Yes, but not 180Ah. A jump starter only needs to supply hundreds of amps for a few seconds.

    The unit contains Capacitors which are charged up; they provide the initial "oomph". Believe me, I have started my 5.0l V8 / 4.2l V8 and 3.2 Flat-Six using a single charge...

    Makes sense. Big capacitors can discharge an extremely high current.
