I'm using these things right now, and have been for about an hour now. I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and we see some of the coldest winters in the contiguous United States (Northern MN has us beat). As a result, my Ford Focus' battery got fed up and decided to stop working. Unfortunately, I was stupid and had given my jumper cables to a friend years back. Lesson learned. I didn't want to buy these things. If it were up to me, I'd have gotten some traditional jumper cables and just jumped my car. But my straight-from-the-burbs cohabiting male best friend insisted that these things may be safer, and that we should try them. Since he's the money and now the only wheels, I didn't have much of a choice. So here we are... the thing promises between 10 and 40 minutes (I think? the package is not nearby) for a charge, but you should double, if not triple. I'm pretty sure he'll still be sitting out there tomorrow getting my car to start, but that's just me. At least it was only seven bucks. Bottom line: this is NOT something "every women should own" or whatever the other reviews said. People should try the product before they rush in to give it 4 stars. Ladies, instead of resorting to these trends, you should seriously just buy some jumper cables and teach your daughters how to use them, and make sure she keeps some in her car, too.
