With all the accessory plugs in the vinyl case as well?cwstnsko wrote:I can get the exact dimensions this afternoon, but when the unit is packed in its carrying case, it fits the glove box perfectly and is about 1.5 inches thick, leaving room for other stuff in the glovebox as well
I bought one earlier today at a Lowe's store for the Black Friday special price $79. I think that $20 off price is good for several more days too. They had a bunch on a special display, probably 50 or so.cwstnsko wrote:I have never had a problem with the 12V on my FFE, but all this discussion of other FFE owners, Leaf owners and Tesla owners having 12V battery issues had me thinking of a "safety net". I guess it is similar to ordering a Dynaplug kit as soon as I figured out that there was no spare tire I was looking at jump start boxes, and they all seemed somewhat bulky. It seems to me like the FFE could be jump-started with a handful of D-cells While wandering through Lowes today, this caught my eye!
Here's a link

This seems ideal. Small, light, portable and fits easily in the glovebox, which is easier to get into than the rear hatch if you have a 12V problem.
I bought mine today for $99, but when searching for a link to it I found that it will be marked down to $79 for Black Friday

It seems like a nice addition to my FFE for a little piece of mind. I hope I never have to use in to jump MY car
Yes I looked at a lot of those other similar models sold on amazon.EVA wrote:Nighthawk, I have a similar product I am testing, and couldn't figure out how to really stress it. Thanks for giving me some options. I keep trying to find a car with a dead battery to jump start. Can't find one anywhere. The inverter is a great idea.
This is probably exactly the same battery on this inside - there is about one Chinese manufacturer that makes all these (even the one at Lowes)

This one is $57 all the time.
