    Default Battery booster needed

    guys i need a battery booster for my future father in law. he needs it for his classic cars so it needs to be powerfull enough to start a 4.2l engine as a minimum. any ideas? it doesnt need a compressor or anything built in. any ideas?

    I've got this one, it works very well, but I wouldn't rely on it for a 4.2L 8 cylinder.

    depends if he is going to keep it in the boot or just for the garage machine mart is prob your best bet or try see if you can find the same sort of spec 1s on ebay and what is the car if you dont mind me asking jag? i take it its not got a crank handle at the front lol the good old days they some times nearly riped your arm off if they didnt pop out in time as it kicked over

    yea they are all classic jags. 1x140, 2x150, XJS, and an e-type. its just for when they have been sitting over the winter and they need a bit off a boost. they are on trickle chargers but i guess sometimes they need a bit of help. i think it would be mostly be in the garage but needs to go in the boot too

    Does it have to be a booster, how about the smart trickle chargers for classics that you leave permanently plugged in? When the battery drops, they bring it back up.
