What we liked about the Clore JNC660

The Clore JNC660 is a no nonsense rugged, powerful jump starter. It’s massive 1700 peak amps finds favor with car dealers and mechanics who require a jump starter that will jump vehicles of all sizes, and several times on one charge. The updated design since 2010 includes a charging cut out that means it can be left to charge without fear of causing damage through over-charging.

Disadvantages

At 18 pounds this is no light weight. As this is a very capable  jump starter it is reasonable to expect it to be heavier than most so you may wish to consider this if you anticipate a lot of use perhaps by someone that is not exactly pumped.

For normal emergency usage to move it from one end of the vehicle to the other, this is not an issue. 18 pounds is actually only 8Kg so not even half the weight of a normal suitcase when you go on holiday.

It’s hard to find fault with the JNC660, which is probably why it has managed a remarkable 92% customer satisfaction rating (see image at top of page), so although we talked about its weight at 18 Ibs being quite bulky, it is actually around the same weight as any other battery powered jump starter, and a little lighter than one with a compressor built in.

 


 

Common Questions for the Clore JNC660

To ensure longevity Clore recommend that the JNC660 is recharged after every use.
Bigger engines need more amps to turn them over. If you have a SUV, a 7 cylinder engine or several vehicles, a 1700 amp jump starter is what you need. 
Yes, should the battery fail, it can be replaced. The unit comes with a 1 year warranty and a fixed price repair for the following year.
The amount of jump starts this unit can deliver depends on several factors, such as temperature, number of cranks before the engine fires, etc. Customers have reported getting 15 jump starts out of one charge.

A jump starter is what you need when your vehicle will not start due to a flat battery. A battery charger is used to maintain a charge in your vehicles battery by connecting it to household AC power.

As such, jump starters are supplied with jumper cables, and are manufactured with an internal battery. Jump starters are kept in a state of charge by regular charging in order that they can jump start a flat battery without the need for an AC connection.

As a Battery Charger has no battery, it must be plugged into household AC power to operate.


 

Conclusion

With Clore products you can buy with confidence. They have excellent after care provisions and will replace defective units and pay for the return postage of the faulty jump starter. These units also come with a voucher for repairs after the one year warranty has expired – we are unaware of any other manufacturer that offers this level of after care.

It comes as no surprise that the Clore JNC660 has been a best selling car jump starter for many years. There are a few really great car jump starters, but not many come with the punch of the clore and the reliable customer service. Buy in confidence, highly recommended!

powers from Verified Owner
If you can’t start your car or truck with this thing, you have bigger problems than a dead battery! This unit is one of the most powerful portable battery jumpers out there at 1700 peak amps. That’s almost twice as powerful as many other lower quality competitors.
Joe from Verified Owner
Being the owner of a car dealership, we put these through the test, using them 10-15 times a day, we have had other makes in the past, but nothing lasts as long as these
Brandon from Verified Owner
We have yet to find a vehicle it will not start. Some days it is jumping 10-15 cars and we don’t really charge it all that often. I
Thomas from Verified Owner
This is a superior jump pack. Stays charged for a long time. Love it.
Loomis from Verified Owner
This is awesome, not only jumps all types of 12v batteries, but you can plug your 12v adaptor in it to charge cell phones, run stuff.
