    Has anyone used these? Weigh a pound and can jump the bike or car or charge the cellphone. If so which one? The "1" has more capacity - more cost.

    The only difference is the accessories that comes with the xp1, personally the xp3 as all the accessories I need, not got one but thinking about it

    Both versions have the same capacity ("200 Amp - 400 Peak Amp Jump Starting ability") according to AntiGravity. I bought the XP3 for its smaller size, and I determined I would not need or want to carry the extra stuff that comes with the XP1.

    It's smaller and more useful than a pair of jumper cables, but I confess it tends to be used more for recharging electronics. The XP3 fits into a Garmin Zumo 6xx case; people give those cases away.

    Note that old inventory does not have the Apple Lightning connector on the adapter cable.

    The plastic of the positive alligator clip shattered when using the XP3 to start a car in very cold weather. AntiGravity sent a replacement.

    There is a capacity difference-- I got that straight from Antigravity. Not power but capacity. Wanting to know if the xp 3 is fine for bikes as I don't need the acc either.

    What's the comparison? Not that a typical bike needs all that much.

    I've witnessed first hand that one of them can start an older American V8, so a bike would be easy peezy for either one.
