Duracell Jumper Cables and Starters - Jumper Box - DU37FR Review


Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. We're going to talk about the Duracell Portable Emergency Jump Box and Tire Inflator. As the name suggests, this is a great emergency tool to make sure that you never are stranded without a way out. You can jump your battery, make sure that you never have a dead battery again. You could also make sure that your tires are always inflated, so you don't have to find a gas station that has free air.

You can always inflate those on the road and make sure that you stay safe. This really helps to keep you independent, so you don't have to rely on anybody else to come and help you out. It has a couple of nice features. Self- charge, other accessories too. We've got a 12-volt port here, a USB port there, so if you want to charge your phone or any other small accessories, you can do that.It also has a light, so you can see what you're doing even at night.

If you have to hook up your battery, just press and hold that button and that light pops on there. Since this does have the air compressor for that tire inflator, it's a little bit bigger than some of the other ones that are just the jump box. This does have a peak amp rating of 900, so should be a pretty good amount of power to keep your stuff charged if you want to run your phone or anything off of it, or again, a small speaker or something like that, but it's not on the high end. It's kind of mid-range, as far as these guys. We've got a lot of different options and configurations for these jump boxes.

I would say this is one is mid-tier, as far as that goes. I'm going to turn that light off, or actually I'll turn it back on so that you can see it.I'll turn the lights off in the studio, so you can get a better idea of how bright that really is. It's not super bright, but it's enough to where you can see what you're doing while you're trying to get those cables connected. Even if you're doing that in the dark, you should be able to point that there and get those hooked up correctly. You don't want to reverse the polarity on this because it can cause some damage both to your battery and to the unit.

So, got to be careful with that. Usually vehicle batteries are pretty well color-coded these days, so you just want to make sure that you match red to positive, black to ground and so on. It does have an on-off switch for that power, so once you hook it up, if you happen to forget before you turn it on, you should be safe. But, once you're ready to go, just switch that on and leave it on for a little bit, until it gets a charge started for your engine and you should be good to go. It works for up to eight cylinders for your engine.Again, 900 amps is the peak power. To charge it, to make sure that it's always ready to go and also to get access to that tire inflator, it's stashed in this little pocket back here. We've got our AC plug and then our inflation hose and a couple of attachment accessories. You can use this for water floaties, any kind of sports equipment. It's got the needle attachment and then another tapered attachment as well, to make sure that you can use it for all kinds of stuff. The inaudible 00:03:08 on there right now, should work for most of your tires right out of the gate. I'm going to turn that on so you can hear how loud it is. It's probably going to be pretty loud, so just brace yourself. (silence)Sorry about that. I was trying to build up some pressure, so you could see that gauge working, but the way this is designed, it's hard to do that without having actual threaded thing. But you can hear how loud that is. Not too bad. Compressors are just loud. There's nowhere around that. I've heard some that are worse, some that are better. Again, this one really does fall right into that middle category, as far as the features. I'm just going to cram that guy back in there to stash it away. To charge this, the port is down here. You just plug this cord in there and then plug the other end into your wall at home. I suggest that you charges about every three months or after each use, just to make sure it's always topped off. There's those guys back in there, put our cord back in there.It is also a weather-resistant construction, so even if it's raining outside when you're trying to get your tires inflated or anything else, you should be good to go. It shouldn't affect the unit overall. I'm going to try to cram this back in there. It's limited space in this little compartment, but I do like that this is built-in, that you don't have to have that cord just floating around separate. There's at least one where there's not really a good spot for the cord and I just like wouldn't things have a dedicated spot. The clamps have a spot to live. The cord has a spot to live and that hose, so everything is compact and kept together. As far as the air output, I believe that this can work for about up to 160 PSI. That's going to be the max rating that's on here.That's a pretty good amount of pressure to build up for your tires. A lot of tires only really need to go up to about 30 PSI, maybe 40 or 50 at the high end, unless you've got some really big tires. You can also use this for airbags, if you'd like, your suspension airbags, to keep those topped off, so you don't have to find a gas station. This is going to be typically cheaper than having an onboard compressor. That gives you an option there. That's pretty much it for our look at this. One last thing I do want tell you, it's about 13 pounds. So, okay as far as weight goes. Then about 12 inches by 10 inches for the measurements. All the other specs are listed out on the product page.If you want to see those in detail, you can find them here at etrailer.com. I hope this has been helpful in deciding if this is the right one for you. I would say this is again, that mid- range as far as all the bells and whistles. But if you want to find any of the other ones, you can find them right here. I'm Ellen at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.
