Questions & Answers

So if i use it to jump start . I dont have too charge fir 5 yrs . Is that right . Or im i reading it wrong .

Like more infomation on keeping it charged
Asked by: SR
Yes. The technology here is different from a Lithium battery, that you have to charge every few months and immediately after any jump starts. Our product is charged by the small amount of charge left in the battery. It is kind of like filling a bucket with a small drip of water and then dumping the entire bucket all at once. We fill the super caps with the small amount of energy left in the battery and then dump it all at once to start the engine. Something like 98% of all jump starts are not with completely dead batteries, but just batteries that are too flat to start the engine. If the battery is completely flat, this can easily be charged by a USB charger, another car battery, the cigarette lighter adapter or even a small cell phone backup battery.

Does this work on Diesel Engines?

Does this work on Diesel Engines?
Asked by: KB
Yes. This unit will typically start smaller diesels, ~3L. We have two other units coming the THD in a month that will handle larger Diesel engines; a 750A & 1000A. However, if your vehicle has a smaller size engine, this will work.

I have 3 questions "ONLY ABOUT SUPERCAPACITORS" in this Jump Starter. 1. How many Super Capacitors in it? 2. Their specifications? 3. Their Make? Thanks a lot in advance for authentic reply.
Asked by: I111n
Hello. I appreciate your interest in our RescueMate Super Cap Jump Starters. We don't publish the design details of our product, as you might guess. The main advantages of this product though, never needs regular charging, last 10 years (Lithium only lasts ~3 years), and actually WORKS in cold weather. Lithium claims it does, but in fact, will only work if the jump starter is warm which is unlikely after your car is parked at an airport for a few days. We use super caps & electronics that work from -40F to +149F. Put a Lithium outside in 0 degrees for a few days and not only won't it work, but if you leave it discharged the battery is destroyed.

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.

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.

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!

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.
