Jumpstarting from a USB device?
The hell! This device seems to be capable of jumpstarting any car. Kudos to the engineers behind this product. It can be bought from proporta from their online store here USB TurboCharger Auto Edition – USB TurboCharger – Car Charger – Portable Charger

This is amazing. Great find!!!
I just remember the age old saying (I think I am remembering it correctly)
Good things come in small packages!!
Does anyone have a first hand experience on this as if this works this is a must have!!!

Thats really amazing(If it does what the ad says). Its a must have for long hauls. And at 62$ is quite reasonable. Best part is its size.
di1in, nice find!

I'm very interested to know what kind of batteries are inside the device and in what configuration. Any ideas?
@vivekiny2k - true point! A cigarette lighter re-charge would have made so much more sense.

great product !! saves us lots of effort.
I think one needs to own this when you see the battery getting old :-)

Too good to be true!!
I am sceptical about this whole thing.
Even with the latest battery technology (Li-Ion etc), the charge density has not increased so drastically to reduce the size of the batteries.

Aw shucks, I just hope it isn't another (and highly annoying) April fools joke.
1. Seems to have been released on 01/04
2. No "buy" button for this product
3. Other links on this particular page don't work.
