Features of Clore Automotive Jump-N-Carry JNC660 Jump Starter
Although the outstanding feature of Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 is its absolutely reliable power, it does not end there. This product has other unique features that distinguish it from other jump starters. The Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 reviews show that the product got a 4.8-star rating from 10,953 reviewers. It’s no surprise that it ranks #3 in automotive performance battery accessories and #6 in jump starters. Let’s take a look at its features.
- High Power Delivery
What’s the use of a jump starter if it cannot jump-start dead batteries?
Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 excels in power. Its Clore performer battery is particularly designed to deliver excellent cranking power, long cranking duration, and perform numerous jumps per charge. It also has a long service life.
The jump starter is powered by Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) lead-acid battery. It is a major advantage over most jump starters which are mostly powered by Lithium-ion (LION) batteries. Its lead-acid battery type makes it a lifesaver in cases of extremely cold weather. It eliminates the worry of your jump starter getting “killed” by the cold alongside your car battery. Your movement in winter is well insured.
The voltmeter on the side of the jump starter tells you the device’s battery status when you press the button just below it. It does this with the two battery status indicator lights in the meter (a charge and still charging, respectively).
That’s not all, though. The battery of this jump starter is replaceable and can be changed by the user (if mechanically inclined) when weak. This drastically increases the lifespan of the jump starter as you do not have to buy a new unit when yours is weak. You can just simply change the batteries.
NB: This jump starter does not have an on/off switch, meaning it’s always on. Yea, you read correctly. Because of this, it is very important to ensure that the two clamps do not touch. Clamps should be stored in their holsters accordingly, the way it was stored in the pack. Contact between both clamps can cause serious damages. The clamps are externally insulated, though, to prevent accidental contact from improper storage.
- High-Performance Components
The Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 is uniquely tailored to deliver as much power as possible to disabled vehicles. All of its components are made of heavy-duty materials to host and transmit high power. They are very sturdy and reliable.
The heavy-duty 2 AWG cable ends in industrial-grade clamps that can penetrate corrosion on the battery for good electrical connection. And that’s not all. The cables are 46 inches long. Way longer than the cables of almost every other small jump starter. This means they can reach the battery terminals of all kinds of vehicles. Super convenient to use.
- Built-in Automatic Charger
Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 features an automatic built-in charger for its battery. This charger automatically stops the battery from receiving more charges once fully charged. This means you can leave the jump starter plugged in always without fear of overcharging. With this feature, your jump starter is always ready for use.
- Heavy Duty Case
The exterior covering of the Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 is made of a mixture of plastic and rubber. This makes it impervious to fluids (which are inevitable members of automotive shops).
This design ensures that electric components of the jump starter do not come in contact with fluids. It essentially ensures the safety of the jump starter and its user.
- 12V DC Power Supply
The Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 comes with a 12V DC power outlet for charging 12V accessories. It also has a DC input for recharging its internal battery.
Being an entry-level pro jump starter, Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 is smaller than most industrial jump starters. It is, however, significantly larger than portal car jump starters.
The size is not an issue, though. It is designed with a carriage handle (much like that of a jerry can) for easy carrying and handling. It will not fit into your glove box (like portable car jump starters, lol), but it won’t occupy significant space in the trunk.
In a Nutshell
If you’re looking for a high-power jump starter that is easy to handle and can function well in extreme weather, Clore automotive jump starter JNC660 is your go-to jump starter. However, it is a little pricey compared to other entry-level jump starters. You are sure to get value for your money.
