Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoWorries32 Not as Pictured!
I was in for 1 and it's not as pictured. Mine only came with 1 plug on each side of the front. Not with 2 (4 total) as the picture shows. The pictures shows 2 120V AC and 2 12V DC plugs. Not the case. Would still recommend if you have a need to save others with battery trouble.

I bought this to be a stand by for a medical condition, in which I need to be on a breathing device while I sleep. I followed the directions, and charged it for 48 hours the 1st time. I tested it on a electric device, that has the same electric out put as the CPAP does.
My first test of how long it will last has well passed 3 hours. My wife said I can keep it if it gets 3 or more so Im happy at the 3 and a half.
I have not yet tested the other features, of this item, which is why I give it 4 stars, as time goes on, I will test them all before I would have to take it back if it under- preforms.
I would trust this device to power the CPAP with out any fear of it running out of juice to soon, if it is a litigate emergency 3 hours of sleep is better then not wakening up cuz ya stopped breathing.
So whats hot about it,
the device, does what it says. The AC out put has lasted more then 3 hours, with no signs of slowing down at this time. Thats great, considering its a battery powering my speakers for my computer right now.
Also, all the other things it has the tire inflator, light, DC and AC power, it is portable, the speakers that I am testing it on, never had interference in them the whole time the test was going on.
Whats not hot,
Its just under a hundred bucks, if your on a tight budget, and need something dependable its ok, but I would like to pick it up at about 20 bucks less
1 DC port, 1 AC port, the display model shows 2 of each, im not happy about that.
You'll need to get your own extension cord to charge it, it comes with a cord for DC Charging, but not AC. I knew that before buying it.
Over all if you need something like this Id say go for it. It's all most too much for what it does, but not quite. It clams it can hold a charge for 2 months I have not yet tested that, I wanted to see first how long the AC port would last. first.
hope this was useful thanks for reading

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rafiki Great product hands down one of the Best!
This is a wonderful versatile unit and not just for Jumpstarting. It has a strong 450 amp starting capacity which has worked great on my diesel truck and backhoe where all others have failed. The battery has always kept a good charge and is a great camping accessory to have with you because of all the power options. This unit with a plug in solar panel while camping will give you plenty of power at night and without needing electricity during the day to charge it. The longest I had one is 3 years and I have had 2 and both have been runover one still worked even after it was runover. I am looking to buy another but have only found a different model. This is an awsome unit. If you want a great dependable jumpstarter this is the one, buy it! The only bad thing about this product is the compressor is poor and cannot run for an extended time or it burns up and is junk. Probably great for bicycle tires and some small to intermediate inflatables but not really made for car tires. (keep a can of fix-a-flat) Hope you enjoyed my review and this helps you out.

We use this to play music and run a sound system on a community float. In the past, we used a car battery-dirty, heavy, and ran down fast. We now have 2 of these and have more than enough power. Easy to charge and carry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Great price for the features you get
This is one handy product to have! 3 in one! Air compressor, jump starter, and 110v power, the work light is handy too. Bought one for myself and used it for everything from jump starting the jet ski (on the water when it wouldn't start!) to running a camp radio in the middle of the state park during a storm! Bought one for the family later as well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aRBy I like it and use it a lot
I liked my old one and used it for many years. i use an MFJ-4225MV DC power supply to charge it. I believe this enhances performance. Some people complaining of poor performance seemed to be using the AC wall charger. I'm not sure that charger gets the cell fully charged. and there's no good way to measure the cell charge. Having a good DC power supply helps get maximum performance from the unit.
Once i get my new one, I plan to swap out the battery in the old one so I have two.
On a side note, the Electromate 400 keeps the household Wi-Fi running for DAYS after a power outage because these devices use very little power. Hopefully, you keep an extra laptop battery charged up for such emergencies.
