Pretty cheap, but for a little more you can get a similar unit with more cranking power that might prove more useful for other starting applications. Not trying to be negative, just my opinion.

Will it work, how many CCA do you need?
-A friend had a sled DOA on the trailer when we got to the trail head, had to jump it old school with frozen jumper cables and it was a pain in the #%^*+ at minus 5 degrees
-Just thought I'd share, especially if you are in the middle of nowhere... is there something better?

Got estart optioned summit, had the recoil installed as well. estart hasn't failed yet, but it may and I'll have a cord to pull instead of tincker with a clip and rope on the pulley

This unit http://www.amazon.com/Antigravity-Batteries-AG-XP-10-USB/dp/B00MQ5Z5F2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1453041881&sr=8-3&keywords=micro-start+10 has 600 amp cranking power, compared to 450 in the unit mentioned earlier. Cranking power is important, the more the better. When I bought a unit a year ago I did the research and ended up with the XP10,there may be more powerful models/different brands available now. The model I have has been very impressive and gets the job done, even in -20's with a dead pickup battery. This was the first site I looked at, there may be better sources for pricing, you will have to do the research on other brands.

jump packs are definitely easier than jumper-cables quite often. I've got a gel based one I used for all sorts of weird things, but not yet to crank an engine over. Since I don't go real far alone, I'll stick with a small set of cables jammed under the seat than trying to remember to keep the booster boosted for every trip.
