    Was down at the Mechanicsburg Flat Track this weekend ( Jared Mees is 2017 champ) when my buddy went to start his 2014 GSA it wouldn't crank. We tried a couple push starts BLAH, I have small jumpers and was ready to use them when a Harley Rider- yep a Harley rider- came over with his little Suaoki k12 hooked it up and instant start..WOW When were these invented.. He said he started a deisel truck with it and a hilo and it has been charged for over a year with 4 of the 5 bars still showing power..... Some one else piped up and said they had a Weego ,,,These things will power your phones etc.. Anyone out there have any experiences good or bad with others...

    about as long as you've been hiding under a rock:lol3,,,, there are several threads here on this subject and they've been gaining popularity maybe 4-5 yrs now.

    which one? well unless you want to do ALOT of reading and become schooled in battery types i'd say just pick one,,, any one.

    I guess not needing one had no idea.. When the Harley guy brought his over started the bike instantly and said "yeah I started a deisel truck, a hi lo and a car all on charging it LAST YEAR " I was impressed... Especially since I was pushing the bike around the parking lot :muutt

    FYI tried a couple searches ?? But they don't seem to work too well... I get better searches on Google that then show adv links

    Nothing wrong with a fresh perspective, vs. reading old reviews on this site.
    If another rider has a positive experience with a product, I'm game for it just being posted organically instead of digging through 57 pages of past/outdated threads.
    Plus, "they are not all alike" (jump packs).

    :lol3 right back at yeah.

    Fresh perspectives are great, and your right they are not all alike,,, but unless you want to delve into the world of batteries I still stand with "just pick one"

    That doesnt mean pick the cheapest one,,,, find the middle of the road price point you like and buy it. I personally like schumaker battery chargers so I went with theyre jump pack. Its neither the most capacity or the lightest, but its a good silid middle of the road and has performed as expected.

    I've been carrying an Antigravity XP-5 Mini for about a year. Had to use it to jump my 990 Adventure a couple times. Have used it to charge iPhone and Sena a few times on camping outings. Very easy to pack as it is roughly the size of two iPhones stacked on one another. I equipped both of my bikes with EC5 connector harnesses directly to the battery so I don't even need to carry the jumper clamps, I just connect the XP-5 to the harness.

    One thing I have run into is the plastic battery clamps. I had one snap. I have since crimped and soldered some metal clamps on it.

    I was looking at them a while ago and read a lot about cheap Chineese knock-offs being sold on eBay and Amazon. They were such good forgeries that they are near impossible to tell apart from the brand name ones until they catch fire.
