    Default New kind of jump starter

    If this works as well as they say, it would be a big plus for boaters...

    Looks pretty cool and always good to have a backup plan. If you need real world product testers from trusted members of the forum I'll gladly volunteer.

    I just keep two batteries aboard and a set of jumpers long enough to reach between them. Saved me last week.

    Blue Sea System Add-A-Battery kit (#7649) keeps all batteries, 1 at the rear & 2 in council charged and ready to be switched via its switch.

    Kind regards,

    I installed a PERKO switch (30$ delivered from Amazon) and a Deep Cycle battery to run auxillaries when the motor is not running. Entire project with battery about 125$ and you don't have to remember to bring it with you. Saved me more than once. But who doesn't like to have toys?
