I brought this unit in December of 2006 during a winter storm power outage in Seattle Washington. We used the inverter part to run the electronic part of our pellet stove and it worked great. I've also used the AC to power my portable guitar amplifier outside. I've used it to put air in my RV tires and charge my cell phone battery. I've used it a few times to give jumps and it's worked great every time. I'm considering buying one for my wife and daughter this Christmas. This is a must have tool for temporary emergency power.
The B&D Electromate 400 is one of the best jump pack that I have ever purchased by far (I have bought several brands...this replaces them all). It does it all, not only jump start your car but will fill up your flat tire, run dc appliances and run household 110 VAC.
I carry it with me when I am on the road SUV in my, not only for emergencies, but for recharging my laptop computer and to power my printer.
I also take it with me, when my family goes camping. My wife uses this to power her 13" flat LCD monitor tv for her soaps.
It holds a great charge and does not die out easy. I have one in my SUV, in my pick-up truck and in my wife's car. Going to get another for my son's car (I don't want to share mine...Haha).
I totally recommend this jump pack/air compressor/110 VAC & 12 VDC power source/work light, for the person on the go who needs portable power. Two thumbs way up!!
Did my research and Wal-Mart.com has the best price on this jump pack. Wal-Mart.com was between $20.00 - $40.00 cheaper than other competitors. Fast shipping if your local store does not have one in stock.
Works great! I've used it about a year. Perfect for power outages, jump cars, camping, etc. Never had a problem with it. Well worth money.
Walmart had the best price around on this highly rated all-in-one power center. It works GREAT... air pressure gauge is very accurate, power functions exceeded my expectations, AND, you can just plug it into an extension cord to recharge it. HIGHLY recommended!
Bought this after purchasing another brand and returning it. Use this for power to run hedge trimmers around the yard. Also used it to jump start lawn mower battery. Worked great!
I've had mine for about a year now and I've used it 5 or 6 times on other peoples cars and it gets the job done. it's heavy like any other charger but you only have to charged it once every 4 months, I recommend it!
I live alone and have an all eletrice house so every storm we have I lose my power and freeze. with this little baby, I can puge in my eletrice blanket to keep warm and my laptop to watch the storm. and after a cold storm I had to use it to jump my car. only toke one try.
I've owned this practical tool about a month. I bought it as a back-up after my battery died twice due to a faulty back up light switch. The switch was sucking all the power from my battery because it wouldn'tt shut off, unbeknownst to me since I don't regularly check my tail lights to see if they're on.
Other products don't have as many features as this B&D and cost as much or more.
I'm very pleased with it so far. I'll know how good it is after owning it longer and using it more.
I like the design of the case. Very easy to store.
Wal-mart had this baby to me in days. Very fast response.Great product.Very powerful and practical at a great price.
This is not a cure-all but will serve the purpose in a pinch.
+'s- plenty of power to crank your vehicle- sturdy case- simple to use
-'s cables need to be longer (they have to be stored separate from the unit anyway)- air hose is too short also - built in light is non directional you will still need another light source in poor conditions
(haven't tried the ac power )
I could not get the AC plug to work, so I returned it.
got the first one and it would not re-charge - returned to store and got a replacement - on this one the AC power plug stopped working......
bad do not buy it is a very bad product will not start my riding lawn mower
This product is easy to operate and can handle a variety of households tasks. A must for water enthusiasts.
A side benefit: Even if it was not a fantastic product (which it is) it has numerous buttons, noises, knobs, and gauges, which can keep a man entertained for hours.
This is by far the best portable power supply/booster I have ever owned, and I have had 3 other brands before buying my Black & Decker.
The battery life is excellent and has the power to jump-start an almost completely dead battery. It holds it's charge even when stored for weeks. The Walmart price was the best value for the money!
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband, and he was very happy when he opened the box because he had been wanting one of these products for some time now. Also, the fact that it was a Black & Decker product made a big difference to him. He has already tried many of the features, and so far, they have all worked. So he is very pleased with this product, and I am happy that I scored a "10" on one of his Christmas presents.
Compact, nicely laid out package consisting of air compressor, battery charger, trouble light and assorted power outlets, the Black & Decker Electromate 400 is a fine resource to have at the ready in one's garage, or, especially during the risky winter driving months, in one's vehicle. I charged my new unit up upon finding it delivered to my porch on Friday evening. The very next day, I used it to jump-start a lady's weak car battery in the supermarket parking lot. 'Worked like a charm.
Just took it on a 10 hour road trip. Used it to power dvd player and Nintendo DS games. It came in handy. It will be great for camping.
This is the second one I bought. My son liked the one I had so much he took it with him on his last visit!
THIS PRODUCT WORKS GREAT AND MET FAR MORE THEN MY EXPECTATIONS. I JUMP STARTED MY CAR TWICE IN ONE DAY....WITH A COMPLETELY DEAD BATTERY. THEN, OUR ELECTRICY WENT OUT THAT SAME NIGHT AND WE PLUGGED IN OUR ELECTRIC FIREPLACE BLOWER INTO ONE OF THE TWO AC INPUTS AND IT RAN FOR OVER 5 HOURS, AND THEN OUR ELECTRICITY CAME ON. WE WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY VERY COLD. IT PLUGS RIGHT INTO AN EXTENSION CORD AND ONLY TAKES ABOUT 6 TO 8 HOURS BEFORE IT IS FULLY RECHARGED.
Great product for the money. Seems to be very reliable.
