    Best battery jumper for a manual transmission?

    I'm looking on Amazon and seeing some as cheap as $40 and some as expensive as $160. For those of you that lug one around, which ones are you using?

    My battery isnt dead yet (the car is brand new) I'm just thinking ahead when the weather starts to change.

    I'm not aware on specific requirements for manual vs auto transmission. I'll say from experience though, it's worth keeping charged once every couple months and also to keep a few tools to disconnect the battery terminals from the cables to charge the battery directly onto the battery terminals. You'll get a much better/faster charge that way in a pinch.

    I have 3x TACKLIFE T8 800A and love them. Comes in a sweet case for easy storage/cable management too.





    They also have a 1000A/20000mAh option as well.

    I've heard a lot about these myself.

    These type things are great as long as the battery isn't shorted or completely dead. What I don't like about them is their tiny cables, there is only so much amperage you can push through a 10G wire. However I'm sure they work in 99% of situations.

    the cables are tiny but they are also really short for a reason, the shorter the cable the more amps you can run safely for a given AWG

    Can confirm this thing is awesome. No issue jump starting suv or car with completely dead battery in manual override.
