Default Portable Jump-Start Packs

Please see the link below for portable jump start packs.

Are such things available in India? If not, what is the next best thing to go for?

A bit expensive at that site. You can get these for about 15 to 20 in the UK when they are on offer/sale.

Bought one for Dhs 200 in Dubai. It came with a power outlet (plugpoint) to connect small electrical appliances or laptops, a Light (CFL) attachment, a Fan attachment and Varta batteries.

Hey this looks pretty useful! Extremely overpriced though. Is there any place in Mumbai where you can pick up one at a decent price?

Default Pocket sized power pack to jump start your car (Cobra JumPack)

Happened read the below given article on a portable power pack to jump start your car. Overall the idea sounds good, but will have to wait and watch how effective it is.

Quote:
Cobra Electronics is a big player in the automotive world, largely thanks to its line of radar detectors. What a lot of people don't know, however, is that the company has also been dabbling with products that jump-start your car. At this year's CES, Cobra is introducing the JumPack, which it says is a game-changing device for jump-starting -- an odd-sounding statement, no doubt, but we have to agree. The 7,500mAh portable JumPack (CPP 7500) looks suspiciously like your run-of-the-mill external smartphone/tablet charger, and it's the smallest jump-start power pack we've come across. It features a 200A starting current and gets up to a peak current of 400A, which is enough to give your car's battery a few jumps -- given that it only takes three to four hours to recharge, it should be more than enough to manage those unfortunate situations in a lonely parking lot. It also comes with a built-in flashlight as well as USB output (2.1A) in case you want to give your smartphone a power boost. When it makes its way to stores in March or April, you'll be able to pick one up for $130.

How does this work? At first i thought it might be something along the lines of using supercapacitors, but given the charge time - that seems unlikely.

Bumping up an almost year old thread!

I was on the look out for a jump starter pack and found below mentioned ones to be good. Any insight from Tbhpians who have used similar ones could help me out.
