Another reason why the Stanley J5C09 is a great choice for your emergency needs is the fact that it is capable of outputting 500 amps of power that can be used to start up your dead vehicle in seconds. 500 amps is enough to get the job done in most cases. The J5C09 is capable of outputting up to 1000 amps when at peak starter power. If 500 amps isn't enough, then 1000 amps should definitely do the trick.

The Stanley J5C09 is a well designed and user friendly jump starter that does not require a lot of working knowledge to operate. The conveniently located control panel gives you quick access to all of the necessary operating functions that are required so you can get your vehicle started in a very short period of time.

This particular model is equipped with a conveniently located carrying handle that makes transporting the jump starter easy. The ETL (product safety certification) listed  jump starter is also equipped with cord wrapping hooks which allows for easy storage of the chords that it comes with. If that isn't enough, then you can also take advantage of the added bonus of having an air compressor hose that can be used to re-inflate your tires if needed and a quite power directional torch.

The reviews do include a few gripes; one user suggests the machine is quite noisy at times, and laments the absence of compartments for storing extra accessories such as power cords. For our part, we consider the most credible criticism of the J5C09 is its lack of an automatic float charging system; which means, you can't just leave it plugged in and expect it to maintain a full charge. Instead, you must periodically unplug it and replug it in (at least every few months.) For some, this will not be an issue and they can happily life with this given the very reasonable price of the product. Others may consider this omission a deal breaker.

By way of conclusion, the Stanley J5C09 Jump Starter appears to be a popular and very reliable product. On the basis of the positive reviews we have read we have no reservation in recommending it for your jump starter needs.
