Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by badbitbucket Nice design, but not durable.
Bought it in May 2016, used it at home for bicycle tires and on a couple road trips for keeping tires and air springs inflated, charging phones and tablets, etc. But near the end of July 2016, it crapped out on me. The compressor still works, but it won't charge. I plug the charger in and the charging light does not come on and when I push the test button, it says it has no voltage, yet the compressor still works, though I don't know for how long.
maybe the thing works and the indicators just crapped out, I don't know, but that's just as bad as if the whole thing just failed completely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian good product with minor issue.
This is a powerful JUMPSTART SYSTEM WITH BUILT-IN 110-VAC INVERTER AND AIR COMPRESSOR.
The Charging is done with DC power adaptor or DC from Automobile.It will not tell you when it is fully charged. (No indicator light to show that it has been charged)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ichiban365 Worked OK but poorly thought out features
It has some good features, like a place to store the jumper cables and a USB port. But it has some negatives. When I turned on the inverter, I found that it has a very noisy fan to cool the inverter. This is annoying. If a fan Is needed, it should be thermostatically controlled. In a power outage, if I am running nothing more than a laptop, the fan is probably draining the battery faster than the laptop. The fan is the reason why I would not recommend this unit, nor would I buy it again.
You have to choose between the inverter and the USB port, so again in a power outage I cannot use my laptop and charge my cell phone at the same time. If it had two USB ports, I could use a tablet and charge my phone, but it only has one.
The work light is not especially useful. Other units have detachable work lights, or at least flexible or rotatable lights.
I second a previous comment about nowhere to store the power cube, especially as it is a generic power supply with no marking to tie it to this unit.
The charging LED is red whenever the charger is plugged in. It would be helpful if it turned green when the unit was fully charged.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CiCi26 Money Well Spent
This is the same jump start system the roadside service company that came out to give me a jump used so I bought my own. I also bought one for each of my kids. My son needed to use it once, late at night after a concert. He said it started the car right away and within a few minutes, he was on the road. I've used it to inflate tires and my daughter has used hers to help a friend whose battery died at work. I think I got my money's worth and would buy again in a heartbeat. They are invaluable for a parent's peace of mind when kids start to drive on their own.
Make sure it's fully charged or else it won't do anything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hugh17 Nice Unit With Many Features
I will only give this "6N1 Instant Boost" unit a 4 star rating because I haven't used all it's features at this time. I selected this unit because of the additional 110 volt Inverter feature. I've used it to charge an iPad and pump up a bicycle tire. Both these features work well. The quality appears to be very good. The LED emergency light is sufficient. I like that the charger cables, and air hose pack away so nicely. The unit comes with an array of charging cable, so it's possible to charge from an AC receptacle or a cigarette changer in the car. Thumbs up so far!

Great looking,does a lot of things,have not used all options yet. Love the fact that this unit will be handy in the case of power outages. Only drawback is wish it had more cranking amps. I tried to jump a battery that ( turnes out had 2 bad cells ) and it could only turn engine over but not start it. AAA came out with what he said was a 1500 amp jump start battery and it started but then died on me 4 mins. later. Take what you want from this one experience keeping in mind my battery was shot. All in all happy with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Very versatile unit
Very good jump start & inverter system. Compressor is as good as any cigarette lighter style compressor, but no cigarette lighter is needed, My only real criticism is there is no place on the unit to store the recharger cube. I have literally dozens on these cubes around my shop. It would have been great to include this inside the booster package so you just plug it into the outlet and retain/retract the cord when charged. Other than that, I'm happy with the unit and consider it a good purchase.
