DRAPER 500A LITHIUM JUMP STARTER

Land Rover Monthly - - Product Test -

Draper’s pow­er­ful 250A (crank­ing) unit weighs just 464 g and is packed with use­ful fea­tures that are easy to mas­ter and in­clude blue LEDS for clar­ity. Power is via a lithium cobalt bat­tery. Three switch­able out­put volt­ages make it ver­sa­tile for charg­ing a range of per­sonal gad­gets. The smart jump leads de­tect a cor­rect con­nec­tion via an LED pi­lot light and carry weatherproof in­struc­tions. It suc­cess­fully started a 2.5d en­gine with a slug­gish, but not flat bat­tery. The work­ing light is pow­er­ful but isn’t suited to aim at the booster ca­bles in use.
