    Have a look in Machine Mart, they do Clarke ones, which should be good enough. Apart from that I have used a Sealey one which was excellent

    u can get a cheap one which will be pants, or a decent one which is good. your choice

    Dont get one with a 12aH internal battery you need one with approx 17-18ah one.

    I own one which is a cheap lightweight one and is very poor in use compared to the other one i've got which is much better running 18ah.

    I'll go out to the garage to and get make/model to quantify my statements.

    http://factory.dhgate.com/other-gene...p38291050.html is the poor one using a 12aH battery

    http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/19076...ype=pla&crdt=0 is the better one running a 17aH battery

    note these are not designed to jump start a car from a totally dead battery and no small jump pack like this every would but is more than suitable if you've left your lights on too long or just not enough power to get it running.

    they will only jump a 1.2 petrol from dead... other cars of larger engines with partially discharged batteries only... when the show car .19cdti is half flat my hilka one jumps it fine.. you get about 2 or 3 shots at it.
