MobilePower The BEAST 15-in-1 Multi-Function Jump Starter
great product, but defective
This is a great product. My husband LOVED it. However, we had to return because the the outlet you need to plug in the Beast in order to charge broke the first time we put a cord into it.
QVC has sold out so we found another distributer...hopefully this one won't have the defect.
We use this much more then really expected and it performs great this would serve you all we'll
I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my husband, unfortunately, I must have gotten a lemon unit because it would register a full charge but every time my husband would check the battery charge level it would show only 2 bars. The charge just wouldn't hold. I returned this for a replacement and I'm hoping I'd get a good one, my husband really likes it's functions and implements.
DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!
I bought this in case of a power outage. I am sitting here watching this horrific ice storm coming straight at us so, I pulled out the beast which I have never used except to charge it the first time just to find out the charge prongs are now loose and will not allow me to plug it in. Broken after plugging it in once - how cheap. If you can not plug it in to charge it then the product is useless. I bought two of these - one for another family member. What a huge disappointment. Of course it is too late to return. QVC should give all of us a credit for this horrible product especially when you are counting on it for an emergency and that is when you find out it does not work. The idea is great but, the product is faulty.
My husband bought this exact model earlier this year. He took it on a fishing trip to Canada with his Dad. They used it for inflating tires on the boat trailer & also jumped another person's battery. His Dad kept saying he was going to "accidentally" take it home. So, we bought him one for Christmas & he was very excited!! He pointed out that in a power failure he could even run his CPAP machine by plugging in into The Beast so in that respect it could be considered life-saving!
Sturdy and Useful
We actually bought two of these and have used the tar out of them. So far they haven't missed a beat. At one point my husband accidentally lowered the tongue of our 20 ft. trailer down onto one. It cracked the case but The Beast lived up to it's name. It still works. This was a VERY good purchase for us. My brother-in-law saw them and wanted one also so my husband gave him one of ours. Now we need another one again so we will have two.
Awesome and Handy
We love this - it did come with two identical flashlights which we are trying to sort out, but the machine is great!
JUST A YEAR OLD AND IT'S DEAD....
I bought two of these fall, 2013 to replace two (different manufacturer) we had that were working but were getting old. Lo and behold...... just as others have said, one will not accept a charge. Good thing I kept the old ones that still take a charge. QVC has given me the info to contact the manufacturer, but why do I feel that they'll tell me thank you for the $100 plus you spent on each but we can do nothing. QVC should not be selling items that have had the same problem noted in reviews over and over again. I will NOT be purchasing anything from MobilePower again even if they do honor their warranty when I contact them. I'd hate to have to rely on something that may or may not work when I need it. This is way too much money to toss out the window and way too "ify" to rely on in an emergency.
Used this starting my sons 350 pickup with a completely dead battery and started the truck right away, no wait time . GREAT very glad I ordered this.
Loved it till it stopped charging!!
I used this 3 times and now it won't charge. It is a great item with many functions if only it worked! That's a lot of $$ to pay for only using 3 times. I would not recommend this to anyone. Very unhappy!!!!!
Awe this thing is amazing.
I have a garage with no power to it. I have 2 classic cars
I storage in the garage
I don't drive often so tires llose air
batteries go dead
its nice to feel like you have a helping hand on the road and at home
I Love my Beast
My family has gotten a whole lot of use out of this item, which makes me very glad that I bought it. There seems to be some complaints on this item, but it has worked out great for us. My son lost the charging cord, but all you have to do is plug it into an outlet and it will charge up, at least mine did. I believe we have used every item on the Beast and they have all worked as advertised, you really can't ask for more than that. The only small issue I had, was that it is a little on the heavy side, but then, when you consider the size of the battery this would have in it, which I do appreciate, it makes up for the weight!
