ProPower Jump Starter

Postby 1coolbanana » Sat Jun 17, 2017 5:49 pm

Got one of these today after a bit of research and a recommendation.
Wanted something small enough for the bike backpack but powerful enough for any emergency.

Pretty impressed so far.
Its the Propower Volt, available locally

Charged it up 2 days ago and tried it today on the GS.
The thing is the size of my iphone (but thicker) and it started the GS 3 times from dead cold without batting an eyelid and didnt even get warm.
Its still got a full charge, Im impressed!

I did a video starting the GS.
This was for the 3rd time.

I gave it a go starting the Corolla last night, no problem with that either. :)
Seems like a great little unit :thumb:

Great little unit to take with you if/when the bike battery fails.

Thanks for the information and heads up. :thumb:

Seems a tidy little unit and works well.
Its not the cheapest one around by a long shot but its locally available, looks like quality and it works very well.
I wouldnt use it for an LS1 but it should work easily on any bike :thumb:
Charges phones and stuff quickly as well.

I would just like add that I have one to but had never used it other than charging my phone.
After a prompt from 1CB to test it on my 1190 it was found wanting and failed to start the bike.
So I sent an email off to Mathew Rotin at Propower explaining it's inability to start the bike and how I had bought it a year or so earlier but I was unable to find my receipt.
He replied promptly on a Sunday promising to replace it no questions asked, a week later a new one arrived by Australia Express Post.
You can't beat that for a vendor standing behind their product. :thumb:
