Best Car Battery Booster Pack

Car Battery Booster Pack

Picking the best car battery booster pack (or best car jump starter UK) is very dependent on your own circumstances. If you have a 1959 948CC Frogeye sprite, then you don’t need to go to the expense of car battery booster pack that is capable of starting a 10-litre diesel engine. Conversely, you would be wasting your money on a low powered car jump starter if you have a classic American Muscle car.

Car Battery Booster Pack Features

Below is an explanation of the comparable features between different car battery booster packs.

Engine Size

This is actually the key piece of information you need for choosing the best car battery jump starter for your car. It simply says, “this jump starter is capable of starting engines in this range.”

Peak Rating

The peak rating is the maximum current that the car battery booster pack can provide for a very short period of time. This is boost required to get the engine turning over initially. Once the engine is turning, the amount of power required to keep it turning, and hopefully to start, is the available starting power (ASP) measured in Joules (not all jump starters provide their ASP specification.) For example, the NOCO GB70 has a peak rating of 2000A and an ASP of 15700 joules.

Roughly speaking, the bigger the engine that you have, the higher the peak rating and available starting power you need.

Output Options

This a handy side benefit of the car battery booster packs. Most come with 1 or 2 USB charging ports for charging your phones, tablets and games.

Some car battery booster packs also come with a 12V outlet (Cigar lighter socket). This is really handy for plugging in tyre-inflators, inverters, pumping up airbeds etc.

Flashlight

Another common appendage to the car battery booster pack is the flashlight. They vary in brightness (measured in Lumens – lm) and function: flashlight, strobe, SOS, blue light, red light …

Starts per Charge

This is the number of times that the car battery jump starter will be able to jump start an engine on one charge.

Our Favourites

NOCO absolutely dominate the car battery booster pack market with good reason. They are well designed, robust and a trusted name. You could choose any appropriately rated NOCO for your vehicle engine size and it will give you great performance.

Our 1st Choice for Best Car Jump Starter UK is the NOCO GB70. It has all of the NOCO quality and performance that you need. We particularly like the 12V Outlet option.

Our 2nd Choice(s!) are both NOCO’s as well! The NOCO GB40 and the GB20. These models both have a good spec and sell for under £100. The GB40 will jump-start the majority of cars but be aware that the GB20 is rated for smaller engines (up to 4.0l) but not diesels.
