Device Features:

An important feature of this portable jump starter is the fully renewable Clore PROFORMER battery. These batteries are designed for maximum power density and durability, resulting in exceptional cranking, long cranking times, and long life.

The JNC660 Jump Starter is designed for heavy-duty diesel engines and trucks.

Larger diesel engines are known to require more peak power to start. This portable jump starter is a very powerful unit and can be used to jump-start 8-liter diesel engines or heavy-duty trucks. Sometimes even smaller, less powerful cars and engines require a big boost of Amps before they can start especially on cold winter days.

With the Jump N Carry JNC660, you will NOT have a problem with a dead battery, that's for sure. With 1700A peak and 425A starting power, you can start an SUV or any other large diesel engine with no problem. We tested the JNC660 on our diesel SUV and had no problems even with a 12V battery that was completely dead.

To start the engine with the JNC660, you need to check that your portable jump starter is fully charged to replenish full battery power, connect the clamps in the correct direction, and when everything is ready, turn the key to start the car. That's it. Simple and easy.

Pros

   Built-in automatic battery charger
   DC socket to power 12-volt accessories
   Exceptional starting power and duration
   Heavy-duty case

Cons

   Absence of built-in LED flashlight
   No USB port for charging USB devices

General precautions for use:

- Someone should always be within the range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid JNC660 battery. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing or eyes. Protective eyewear should always be worn when working near lead-acid batteries.

- If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. In case of contact acid with eyes, immediately wash eye with cold running water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention immediately.

- Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto a battery. It may spark or short circuit the battery or another electrical part that may cause an explosion.

- Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery can produce a short- circuit current high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, causing a severe burn.

- Use the Jump-N-Carry for jump starting lead-acid batteries only. Do not use for jump starting dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home appliances. These batteries may burst and cause injury to a person and damage to property.

- NEVER charge or jump start a frozen battery.

- To prevent arcing, NEVER allow clamps to be in contact or to contact the same piece of metal.

- Use of an attachment not recommended may result in a risk of damage to the unit or injury to personnel.

- When using the power extension cord, pull on the plug and never on the wire when disconnecting.

- Do not recharge the Jump-N-Carry with a damaged power extension cord. Replace it immediately.

- The Jump-N-Carry may be used under any weather condition - rain, snow, hot or cold temperatures.

- Do not submerge in water.

- Do not operate with flammables such as gasoline, etc.

- If the Jump-N-Carry receives a sharp blow or is otherwise damaged, have it checked by a qualified service person. If the Jump-N-Carry is leaking battery acid, do not throw out it. Take it to the closest battery recycler in your area.

- Do not disassemble the Jump-N-Carry. Have it checked by a qualified service person.

- The Jump-N-Carry should never be left in a completely discharged state for any period. Damage to the battery could be permanent, with poor performance as a result. When not in use, recharge every three months.

- Always store, use and charge the Jump-N-Carry in an area where children cannot get to the unit.

Conclusion

The Clore Automotive Jump-N-Carry JNC660 1700 peak amp jump starter is a world-renowned starter, preferred by professionals around the world for its powerful performance, exceptional durability, and rugged construction. The Jump-N-Carry JNC660 1700 peak amp 12-volt jump starter has its advantages and in our opinion, not significant disadvantages. It has no flashlight and USB port, it's heavy and not as compact as mini starters, you can't shove it in the glove compartment and have to carry it in the trunk, but it's not too difficult to start an 8 cylinder engine, not to mention smaller engines.

Still, it's a pretty interesting and unique jump starter model. The Clore Automotive JNC660 Jump Starter ranks among the best jump starters.
