The New Energizer Jump Starter could be a Life Saver!

Experiencing problems with your car battery? Don’t get caught without the new Energizer Jump Starter Powerbank offering a compact & intelligent battery charge.

New to market

Weighing in at less than 300 grams, the super compact Energizer Jump Starter Powerbank (FPS part no. 50800B) is a device that offers lithium-ion polymer technology and high portability. The product is small enough to be stored in a glove box, ready to assist in an emergency.

The 5600mAh Li-polymer battery enables a user to start a 1.6L diesel/2.0L petrol car several times from a single charge. It can then be recharged from a 12V vehicle socket or via USB. The intelligent battery connector incorporates a cross-polarity safety function and protection against short circuiting. A life saver in more ways then one, the product also has a 2.1A USB port, suitable for charging most portable electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

The Importance of Using a Quality Jump Lead

There are many fundamental aspects which could suffer if a sudden surge or spike in energy runs through the car during the jump starting process. It is therefore beneficial to use reliable jump leads to avoid any potential damage to the parts and electrical circuitry of the vehicle. All Energizer jump leads are made from copper clad aluminium cables and PVC insulation. The fully insulated, spring loaded and colour coded clamps also provide added user safety. Moreover, the clamps now have a patented high conductive technology (HTC) cable design inside the jaws which transfers the electric current more effectively and efficiently between the two batteries.

Energizer continues to offer its successful range of jump leads with 6 products, from standard jump leads to heavy duty options and LED jump leads that allow easy connection in the dark. These cater for both petrol (up to 5.0L) and diesel (up to 3.5L) engines (see table below).

Energizer has been a popular and successful brand since 1896 when it produced the first consumer battery. Already available in more than 150 countries, a range of Energizer products are now available from us in the UK. With assured next-day delivery and 1-year warranty on all products, the initial portfolio comprised 12/24V adaptors, inverters and a select range of jump leads.

All Energizer products are catalogued on the F:Drive in the Maintenance & Accessories section – speak to your local representative for further details on the range.
