Q:If it lasts 10 years or more why is the warranty only 3 years?
by|Mar 7, 2021
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  For the same reason the average car warranty is 3 years but we are quite certain most buyers expect the car to last longer than that, right? Refrigerator warranties are typically 1 year, even on this site (even for $3000 products), but still have only a 1 year warranty. We have one of the best warranties in this industry and we use the best components and manufacturing. I hope this answered your question.

    by|Jun 8, 2020
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for the question. You are confusing battery ratings with Super Capacitor ratings. We don't rate ours at 500 Ah, we rate at 500 Amps. Big difference! Batteries are rated by Amp Hours (Ah). Super capacitors are not. Amp Hours is an irrelevant spec for Super Caps (Ultracapacitors). The way this product works is by filling up the Super Caps with the residual energy in almost all flat batteries, then releasing it all at once to start the engine. We produce a solid 500 amps, unlike Lithium jump starters that advertise "1000 Amps" and barely even reach 500 Amps. We've done a lot of testing on many brands; all the same. Way over rated. Plus they need regular recharging (every few months) and last only a few years, and don't work in cold weather. Thanks for the question.

      by|Feb 26, 2020
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes this can be constantly charged with solar. The generator should be in good operational condition so it can start within the 10 to 15 seconds of cranking time or you'll have have to wait a few minutes for the super-caps to recharge. I'd recommend the RM1000 Amp. Current from the charging point won't be used during starting.

          I bought this as a help since I have to move my too many vehicles for street sweeping. My pleasant surprise is that despite above the claim of what it will do, this item has started my 7.2litre diesel when it wouldn't quite start and not too cool. It then provided a great assistance when I had to jump start. It dropped that time to a minute or two from often closer to 10 minutes or more. All others are easy!

          Worked absolutely great when I needed it to start my SUV in a shopping center parking lot. I bought it because I knew I wouldn't remember to charge a lithium jump starter every month or two (which they say they don't need, but do). This does not need regular charging. What good is a jump starter if you forget to charge it. Easy to use, lasts 10 years they say, worth a little extra money.

            Easy to Use
            I initially bought the item because my battery started o give me problems, and I anticipated that it would eventually leave me stranded. I ended up needing this about a month later, and it kept me from having to wait for help, or from having to wait around for someone from AAA to jump my battery or replace it. I was a little reluctant to attach things to a battery, for fear that something bad might happen. This ended up being very easy to use and figure out. I want to get one for each of the cars I have.

              We start regularly engines even up to 10 cyl Excursion engines. Just got a response back from a customer, 17 YEARS OLD that started her dad's 2000 Excursion when she was stranded....first time. Now, I don't know the details of your vehicle; if the engine actually starts reasonably well or is not well maintained and or needs repair in order to start or if you are starting it properly for a Super Cap Jump Starter.
              You MUST, and I mean MUST start right when the counter goes to zero. Super easy. Hook the RescueMate to the battery, it will say "Read after a couple minutes", press the "Start Button" and start the vehicle in 5 seconds. Don not wait more that 5 seconds.. Our product is designed to start "reasonably well running vehicles" with the advantage of "not having to charge every few months". RescueMate lasts 10 years. Leave it in the trunk for 5 years and it will still work. Lithium doesn't even work below 0 Degrees unless you store the charger in your house (a lot of good that does you). RescueMate

              The product performed as advertised, the instructions are easy to understand and the product is easy to use. I have used it several times on a 3.5 L gasoline engine. It is rated up to a 5.0 L gasoline engine and I see no reason why it couldn't start an engine of that size. The unit will charge from the "dead" battery as advertised, but (in my opinion) that takes too long when you are standing out in sub-freezing weather. If you have the option, using the cigarette lighter adapter in a running car with a good battery will charge the unit very quickly.

              I am very happy with this jump starter. It is very easy to use and works exactly as advertised. I have a ford explore 3.5L V6. I had a damaged battery this jump starter was able to start my suv with out a battery at all. The usb option is nice but it takes a long time to charge about 30 min.

                Easy to use, never have to worry about charging it, that's why I bought it, just keep it in my trunk. Haven't used it on my car yet but helped someone who's battery was low (they left their headlights on). Started it right up. Bonnie F.
