V26888 - Duracell Portable 300W Powerpack with JumpstartAir Compressor
I have used the Duracell Powerpack to put air in my tires and was quick and simple, other then being loud, but then aren't all air pumps loud? Just used to jump start co-workers car and took no time at all to provide the power needed and didn't even need to be recharged. Have not used it yet to power any household items during power outage but assume it will work the same as has with everything else I mentioned. Also have it in my car for week or more with below zero temps during daytime and went to charge it back up and didn't need a charge at all. Car sits out 10 hours during the day at work, not bad. Also great QVC price since saw it advertised in Handyman magazine for $20 more.
Like I said great item.
This worked great! Today my car would not start so I finally got to try it out and it started my car up right away. It is alot better then having to find someone to ask to jumpstart your car. I am really glad we decided to get this.
missing flashlight,company sent me one !!!!
yes I was missing the light,emailed them and they sent me one.This works great so far.If you do have a problem they make it right.Get it its all good
This saves me all the worry from when we are traveling. I love this powerpack and need to get one for my other car!
Gotta buy more!
Bought 2 of these last year for my husband & I. Bought one for my son this year, my oher kids wanted one too! so did my 80yr old mother. These are so handy! I can jump start the mower or whatever without my husband's help. If a light is left on in my vehicle, I don't have to ask strangers for help hoping they have jumper cables. I also take mine to the beach and plug in a small fan that keeps me cool & the no-see-ums away! I love it! A must in the car & great anywhere else! and why don't they have any one over 16 in the choices below!
I just have to thank QVC for having this product available. I bought this item a little over two years ago when it was marketed under the Xantrex Powerpack name. I first used it this past summer during a power outage in 85 degree weather; I was thankful to be able to run my fan and tv, especially since I was very sick and not able to get out of the house. I continue to keep my powerpack charged and today I needed it for 8 degree Chicago weather when my battery died. I hooked this little gadget right to my car battery, it started right up and I was able to get to the mechanic to buy a new battery. Thank you so much for making this product available, I would never be without it. I have now bought one for my son, my boss as a Christmas present and for my ex-husband (that's how much I liked it).
Works great, arrived fully charged!
B/f loved it and am sure he will use it many times.
Lucky for him I think of emergencies and plan.
SO MUCH POWER
I have one of these and I can say that it is a LIFESAVER. I keep it on top of my frig. So I have power inside the house and outside of the house, at the tip of my fingers. I just love the power meter that shows the remaining power in the unit before a recharge. SO MUCH POWER, IN SUCH A SMALL PACKAGE. GREAT ITEM.
Great for country life!
My husband and I decided on this purchase together.We live in the country and have a sump pit in the basement with a pump to take water away from the house. If the electricity is out during the storm the pump with not work and the basement will flood. Plugging the sump pump into the powerpack will allow it to run at intervals that is needed to keep the basement dry. We haven't had to use this yet but living here one never knows.
My daughter likes the idea of keeping one in her car incase of a stall. She thinking of buying one tonight.
I'm sure we will find other uses for this along the way but right now that is the main purpose for which we bought it.
I bought this for my son last year for Christmas. Initially I don't think he was too thrilled with the practicality of the gift, but when he needed to use it shortly after the holidays, he came back & told me it was the best gift ever! After using it he really loved it & all the features it offers. And I have peace of mind knowing he's got it in case of an emergency. Thanks QVC!
Making Life Easier One Jump at a Time!
I had been watching items like this for a while on QVC but leary when some bad reviews were left. This one is tech. made by Xantrex but has a Duracell brand battery which I think makes all the difference. One difference I will mention is the jumper cables and line for compressor appear to be much longer than the other models. I am a mechanically inclined woman but still feel this is very user friendly and I think will be very reliable if you read the manual and understand what you should and shouldn't do with it. The most important thing is this battery is like a car battery and needs to be kept charged especially aftering using it, it is not like a cell phone etc. that forms a memory. I bought this to use on my diesel lawn tractor to jumpstart and pump up the tires and also as a backup power source for my fish tank and to charge cell phones with our inevitable power outages in Maine. I just used the air compressor when storing a vehicle for the winter which worked very well. We were also storing and old military jeep with a dead battery that needed two jumps one in the middle of the road and it started it with no problems. The best thing about this is I have spent years trying to jumpstart cars in awkward places with damaged cables and this just makes the job so much easier I wish we had this a long time ago.
The unit works well, except the flashlight stopped working after a few months. I use it primarily for filling tires.
I contacted the manufacturer (which is not Duracell, it is Xantrex Technology) and they are going to ship me a new flashlight for free.
Careful though, it only has a 6 month warranty, Luckilly I was right inside the warranty time period.
