Charged up fully once, got 6hrs on it using a low voltage cpap while camping and it never held a charge again. Keep your receipt just in case!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jmts A great product.
The inverter (120Vac 60Hz) is able to power computers, Lights, and other 120Vac devices (500W about 5A) limited by the internal battery charge. I Jumped started a car with a completely dead battery which had not been driven for one year on the first attempt, and filled four tires with the Air Compressor having one of the tires that was completely flat. Also jumped stater a neighbor's van all on the same day. I was pleasantly surprised how well this portable power station worked on the first re-charge.This can be recharged using the 120Vac receptacle or the DCV plug and can power devices using a USB port........
WOW!!! What else could anyone want in a device like this???

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by B1219 Would not charge - very disappointed
I purchased this item on Veteran's Day, and was excited to get it. I thought it would be useful in emergencies, especially this winter in Ohio. I read the instructions, and charged the unit for 40 plus hours as directed, only to find the unit did not charge. I then recharged it with an appliance extension cord for 48 hours and it did not charge. I contacted the company as directed instead of returning to Home Depot. After being on hold for 36 minutes, I explained the problem and was advised to return the unit to Home Depot, otherwise I would be responsible for shipment charges for the unit. I was told the unit had an "internal battery problem." Of course I will return the unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zman nice jeep accessory
I've had this for about a year now and it takes care of everything it says it will. Jump start a vehicle...no problem. Air up a mattress...slow but no problem. Need to charge a phone or laptop...no problem. Great for camping, short term power outage for cell phone/computer(inverter), or if you leave the accessory key on in the jeep. Worth the price when you are in the middle of nowhere. I will be buying another one for my son.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BoyScoutishDude Very Handy Device
If you like to be prepared this is a very handy device to have. It can provide a jump start, provide light, provide electricity (built in inverter) both AC and DC, charge your electronics via two USB ports and a 12 volt 'cigarette lighter' port and air up your tires for a fairly reasonable price.

Great purchase. Works fantastic, at great price. Aired flat to ground tire in less then 3 minutes. Jumped totally drained car battery in less then 4 minutes. Inverter works fine, and has USB also. Very glad I bought it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jayk Great Battery Box & Inverter (Lousy Compressor)
I bought this to allow me to work remotely on m computer after the battery died and charge my phone. It's worked wonderfully in these functions. I get 2.5 hours on my laptop or 1-2 days on my phone or wireless card (USB input). I keep it in my truck as a USB input since the power is much cleaner and consistent than 12v auto input. I have also cranked my truck from it while it was low - the jump start rocks! The carry handle and rubber bumpers make it quite durable, I carry it to and from work each day and often top off.
The compressor is another story. It was broken when I bought it, I returned it, 8 months later the gauge is out. The quality of this makes the whole unit appear cheap.
I give this 4 stars for quality due to the compressor, but 5 stars on value - I have looked at other units more expensive with less amperage.
