I just received my Stanley Jump Starter and I checked out all the features like the LED light the compressor jump starter its really more than what I expected. Compared to the other similar products I feel this is a great buy.

Jump started my totally dead Chicago wintered van battery twice in one week. Also used the compressor to inflate my hand truck tires. After starting my van this jump starter still measured 13 volts. Won't leave home without it. Bought a second one for my lady.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dclark61 Rugged, works as expected, good features
I got this jumpstarter and unexpectedly got a chance to use it a few days later, when I found my battery dead (as in, completely drained) due to a broken alternator. I actually used it three times, and it jumpstarted my car without a problem each time.
The on/off switch for the jumpstarter itself is nice ... means no sparks which can scare folks (I was thinking about my wife, but I appreciated it too).
This thing is very solidly built, feels tight and tough. I like the features even though I've only used the jumpstarter itself. When first jumpstarting my battery, I connected the cables in reverse and the "reverse polarity" light didn't light up, but I'm not sure if that wasn't my fault ... possibly because the battery was completely drained, but possibly because I didn't have the ground cable actually grounded.
The ability to just charge it via a built-in AC plug, versus a proprietary charger, is a nice feature also.
Definitely a recommended product.

I have owned two other "no name" brand starter/compressors which broke in short order. The first one the compressor stopped working, the second the starter wouldn't work. This one seems really solid and compact. Easy to charge, easy to use. It does require an extension cord to charge the battery or you can use the cigarette lighter adapter that comes with the unit. I used it this weekend to jump start my ATV that had been sitting for over a year. It worked really well. The only negative, the cables for positive and negative are a bit on the short side, but should be okay on a car when the unit is sitting on the engine block. They won't reach from the ground.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Product
I wasn't sure about this, but I needed something to get my boat started this spring. It sits at the marina during the winter, normally December through March. Once I backed the trailer with the boat into the water, I kept the boat hooked to the trailer while I tried to start it, figuring I'd probably have to tow it out again and take it somewhere. Much to my suprise (and joy) it turned the engine over with no problem at all. Of course, if you own a boat, you know it takes 3 or 4 times to get it going after sitting all winter, but the product kept turning over the engine with no problem. The battery was so dead, once I unhooked the product from the boat battery, the engine immediately died; however, I hooked the charger back up and it started again with no problem. I keep it in the boat now, and plan on charging it about once a month. Very comforting knowing if I have problems while out on the lake starting the engine, I have the jump starter with me. Would highly recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freddstock Works well.
It started a truck with a totally dead battery with ease. Works as advertised. No complaints.
Rated 1 out of 5 by peotis WORKED GREAT OUT OF BOX. WOULD NOT RECHARGE. TOOK IT BACK FOR A REFUND. WILL TRY ANOTHER ONE.
ONE CONCERN IN ORDERING FROM WALMART.COM. PACKING INSIDE SHIPPING BOX IS VERY POOR AND ALMOST NON EXISTANT. THIS NEEDS TO IMPROVE, ESPICALLY WITH ELECTRICAL DEVICES.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Campingisawesome Worked Great... for a day
It worked great for a day.... I used it to pump up kids bikes and it worked great, but when I tried to pump up my small trailer tire 50 psi and it stopped working. At first I thought it overheated so I left it overnight and tried again the next day and it did not work.. O well.. Walmart returned it with no problem at the store.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RNWonders One of the best gifts
I was given this as a pres. and felt like i wouldnt ever use it, but about 6m after that 2 of my friends needed a jump and 1 needed his tire inflated! I have used it many times since then and it has NEVER failed. Great buy OH and battery life stays up pretty good i have only charged it once
Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredNavyChief Handy - Reliable
Have used this starter twice now with no problems. The only drawback is the short cable length, it's hard to find a place to set the unit while connected and jump in the vehicle to start it. If the cables were long enough to set it on the ground it would be much safer than setting it somewhere in the engine compartment.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DONWSR GREAT PRODUCT TO HAVE WHEN ALONE
STARTED MY CAR WHEN BATTERY WAS DEAD AND INFLATED ALL MY TIRES UP TO 36LBS EASILY AND QUICKLY.
I KEEP IT CHARGED UP AND WITH ME AT ALL TIMES. IT HAS ALREADY PAID FOR ITSELF
Rated 5 out of 5 by satisfiedbarginhunter Lifesaving Jumper
My battery went dead one day and a cop came and helped me jump my car. He had one of these jump starters. I was sold. I picked this one because it has the power to jump a truck. I've only used it once since I've owned it and it worked great. Red to positive and black to neg on your battery. Turn on device. Let it sit about 5-10 min and your vehicle will start. You'll never have to depend on anyone if your battery is dead...Like I said, it's a life savor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roadmeister1 More than expected
Everything about this product and the Wal-Mart service exceeded our expectations.
This product performs on a professional level and cranked the deadest of batteries.
It instantly became a part of our emergency road package while traveling, especially in winter conditions.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TooCheapToSpend Solid & well made
I've had two similar products and they turned out to be junk. This one is heavy duty and the pump nozzel attaches easily. The speed of the pump if very good too. I have not tried the jump start feature but have little doubt about it's ablilty by my experience so far.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bummiesue Everyone should have this unit.
I found this unit to perform as advertised. I started a battery in a matter of seconds. I inflated two vehicles (8 tires) to the tire manufactures specifications.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tvman1 great deal for the money
it's way heavier than i expected, solid built,, charged right up.. has mantained a full charge for a month now... i bought it on sale,, was a bargain...

Grabbed this jump box w/ compressor while on sale. Couldn't pass on the price. Been searching for a new one for some time. My old vector box was 10+ years old & just wasn't doing it anymore. Main purpose was for gold prospecting. To run a 12v bilge pump with my highbanker. Can run the 1200gph 3.5 amp pump for a solid 5+ hours before I need to worry about switching batteries. But normally I shut it off while digging then turn back on when I run material. I can get all day run time this way. The on/off switch is sweet for this.
As a jump box, it works great. I've jumped multiple cars before needing to recharge even though they suggest to charge after each jump. The compressor works fairly well for the size. Can take a few minutes to fill a completely flat tire, but it will fill it. Comes in handy for my atc that has a slow leak on one tire. The light is bright enough, just worry that I will break it off before too long. Haven't had to use the usb charger yet.
The only think I wish it had was a built in converter to run 110v & the ability to charge batteries & check the alternator status like my old vector did. Other than that, very pleased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by alias7777 Good Buy
First I have brought the one without compressor. picture shows it has air compressor. so i have returned it and brought this one. This one has enough juice to jump start the cars. I have used this number of times during irene time. i have jump started my friends car few times. He used his car battery to run drainage pump in basement and recharge it back in the car, because of power failure. we used this jump starter every 4-5 hours for the two days. still it has enough juice left in it
Rated 4 out of 5 by HomeInDC Product did great
Had to use the starter already and have only had it a couple of weeks. Started our Honda Accord like a charm. Very easy to use. The little flash light helped. I would definitely recommend. The price is right too!
Rated 4 out of 5 Good product at a great price, & it works!
I purchased this jump starter as a replacement for my old one which was 5 years old.
This one has already paid for itself once. I believe this to be a good unit, it certainly feels very solid.
One thing that I did not like much is the fact that even though it is described as having high-powered LED emergency light, the light in my unit is very dim and barely usable in an emergency at all. Still not enoough to return the unit as I always carry at least one flashlight with me all the time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KCizzle Could not be more impressed
I bought this for a 3 day music festival. 24 hours of AC wall current and it was fully charged and ready to go for the first time. This monstrosity charged our phones the entire time AND jump started 2 unhappy campers' cars with plenty of juice to spare. The built in USB charger port could not have been more helpful. This item was much cheaper and had a much higher rating than any of the more expensive options (I'm looking at you Black and Decker). Two thumbs up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by henrymaker I only used this Jump Starter a couple times so far but it has a lot more power than the three I had before it. It is very well built and should last a while. I got a better starter than I was expecting for the money. I would recommend it to anyone
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dabble Nice features, seems well built, good price
Okay, so honestly, I haven't used this, yet. But, it seems well built, and has solid metal alligator clips (some other brands only have plastic clips!), and I like having a compressor, option for recharging via DC, and a USB charge outlet. Nice.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rileyhs Stanley auto battery charger
very high quality. Lives up to its name Stanley. I use to add air to me auto tires, bicycles and have in my auto for any emergency. It is a much better quality unit than I had prior.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tpcar Nice to have in the trunk
Sadly, I didn't get this until after I needed a jump start from AAA. It charged up nicely and the compressor is fine, it inflated my donut spare in about 2 minutes (had about 10 lbs of pressure - oops). Checked the USB operation and that seemed fine. Haven't had to use it yet to start my car. It is a heavy piece of equipment, I have an SUV so I bungeed it in the cargo area. Go it as a Black Friday deal, so at $54.00 it is well worth it, $74.00 might be on the pricey side. Sams has a slightly smaller unit for about $50.00.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Danie865 I bought this for my boyfriend and he uses it every day. It works great and he can take it anywhere. The best part is that it has a air pump.
Rated 1 out of 5 by FromAway Charges not accepted
Recently, I purchased a Stanley 500 Jump Starter from Walmart on line. It arrived in a timely manner, and the Site to Store folks were most helpful. I took it home getting ready to use it as a back up power source for a pending road trip. Unfortunately, when I plugged it in to charge it for 24 hours, as recommended, the charge lights did not indicate it was charging. I waited 36 hours, then 48 and still no charge. I pressed the charge power button, and no lights. . . It just did not accept a charge. I brought it back to my local Wamart, and the folks were just as accommodating and helpful. Regretfully, my item just did not work.
I returned it for a full refund, and plan to shop around for other jump starters - perhaps even another Stanley.
Rated 1 out of 5 by artimis No adapter for charging first use
There is no adapter for first time charging. The instructions state to use a standard household extension cord. Well, the plug is recessed and all of the extension cords that I have will not fit. So, I either have to return this item or shop all over the place for the cord needed to charge it before using it for the first time. This should be stated on the order page that you need to order an extension cord and what kind of cord you need to use this item in the first place.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BamaTech This was a great price for this charger . I done some research.
Rated 1 out of 5 by AircraftMechanic I also had problems with my Stanley 500 amp unit discharging completely and it will not recharge. The unit is top heavy and tips over easily. The problem is that the compressor switch sticks out on the back so any movement will turn it on. It would not be a problem if the switch was recessed. Once the battery has been discharged completely it will not recharge.
