The Brightech Scorpion Jump starter is the top product in a range of four lithium ion jump starters that Brightech produce. To call this jumpstarter a gadget would be to do it a disservice however, as this is a portable workhorse! Looking very similar to the PowerAll, but retailing for a few dollars more, this jump starter packs the same maximum starting power as the Powerall, but gives away a little in the mAh department. Can the Scorpion justify it’s higher price point or is this a sting in the tail that Brightech will regret….

For more information on the manufacturer of this model see our Brightech info page.

What we liked about the Brightech Scorpion

  • Charging Adapters. No more worries about gadgets, phones, laptops or tablets running out of power when on the move if you have the Britech Scorpion with you. The Brightech has two USB charging ports meaning that it can charge your phone at the same time you are browsing the web on your laptop!
  • Weighing in at just under 1 Ib this tiny but capable jump starter is so small it will even fit in your toolbox!
  • A pleasing design makes lead acid jump starters look bulky, unwieldy and dated.

Caution

  • There is another lithium jump starter that looks exactly the same as the Brightech Scorpion. Please do not confuse this alternative product from Bestek with the model reviewed here from Brightech.

Tips and Questions for the Brightech Scorpion

If the Scorpion starts making a clicking noise you should immediately try to start the vehicle as the charging process is ready for cranking the engine.
New Scorpion jump starters generally come with 75% charge, however Lithium batteries should recieve a good full first charge before jump starting. We would therefore recommend charging a new Scorpion for around 3 or 4 hours before first use.

 

 


 

Conclusion

There are not many lithium powered jump starters in the market, but to be honest, of the few that exist, it is difficult to choose between them as every one that we have tested and reviewed is very very good. The stand out difference with the Brightech Scorpion Jump Starter is the terrific 3 year guarantee from Brightech – a first for jump starter warranties.

The fact that it charged my iPhone in under an hour was the icing on the cake, so this jump starter comes highly recommended!

Customer Reviews around the web for the Brightech Scorpion

Steve from Verified Owner
On the very first use, the negative clamp broke. I reported the problem to Brightech and was shipped another unit very quickly. Customer Service was friendly, great to deal with and very, very fast to solve the issue. I would buy another product from them just based on their level of customer service.
oceonfront from Verified Owner
I could put at least 25 of these in the space my battery takes up in the truck! In fact, this device fits in my glovebox!

Nigel from Verified Owner
This small hand held device packs some serious energy. I have used this at least four times within the month on November 2014 when we had some fridged weather. Thanks to this portable charge. I can safely say it’s a must have in any vehicle, I would definitely recommend this to any car user or mechanic.

Keywest from Verified Owner
I have never used or even seen a kit like this. Flat out outstanding.

Debbie from Verified Owner
Started the car right up when we needed it and we hadn’t even given it a charge yet.
