Recommendations for Battery Jump Pack


I am looking for a Battery Jump Pack, mainly to power a 12v dc chemical sprayer, but to also jump start a pickup truck. I see some have a built in air pump and 110v ac inverter. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I don't have a Battery Jump Pack but I would probably pick this one
or this one with extra features.

Eh, I've got the Harbor Fright 5-in-1 and it's not really all that great. Yeah, if your battery is only just barely too low it'll help. But not if it's dead or very low, trust me. The inflator is likewise effective. Good if your tire is low but not if it's flat. If that's good enough for you then the 5-in-1 is a decently priced solution. Just be careful about charging it, their included wall wart transformer does not trickle charge reliably. Ignore it and leave it charging too long and you'll ruin the gel cell inside.

I drive a '94 F-250 5.8 L Gas. Tires:LT235/85R16/E

Grateful for recommendations, from experience if possible, for Battery Jump Pack and Portable Tire Inflator.

I've had good luck with the Jump-n-Carry. Built in automatic charger. Don't bother with any other built ins. It's a lead acid battery, so keep it charged. If you tote it around in your trunk, it'll be dead when you need it.

I would look at the required electrical requirements for the spayer and what length of time you need to run it.
Are you taking the spayer a good distance from vehicle? Any information on the sprayer?

A deep cycle battery may work better for the sprayer.

Hi everyone, I am the original poster from 2013. Thanks to "justplumducky" for resurrecting this thread. My sprayer is a 15 gal unit that I tow behind my golf cart. I ended up purchasing a battery pack from Sears with a 12v outlet. It runs the small 12v DC Shurflo pump just fine. Just remember to drain the pump for the winter - or you will be buying a new one in the spring
