Schumacher continues to lead the charge for safe, high-performance lithium jump packs. Schumacher uses lithium iron phosphate technology and world-class battery management systems and its portfolio includes battery chargers, work lights and battery testers. Schumacher’s jump-starters are available in three models: a 12V 600A (SL1314) variant for petrol engines including V6 engines; a 12V 800A (SL1327) model for petrol engines including V8s, plus light diesels; and a heavy-duty 12V 1000A (SL1317) model for petrol engines up to V10 and larger diesel engines. The big SL1317 boasts a peak of 1000 amps and 500 amps of starting power; the SL1327 peaks at 800 amps with 400 amps starting, while the SL1314 peaks at 600 amps with 300 amps for starting. Schumacher’s new jump-starters offer USB 3.0 fast charging for Apple and Samsung devices and feature a new smart cable which protects the user from reverse polarity, short circuit, low voltage, high temperature and reverse charging. The LCD display shows battery capacity and input. They come with a carry-bag and microUSB charging cable for fast-charging wall plugs or cigarette lighter plugs.
