It's a lithium battery, right?Yes. They are great. Will start Boat, bike, Truck, whatever you need. Be careful with them. Jumpstarted a airboat with a hot alternator one time and it started getting really hot. Set it down away from everyone and it blew. Made about a 10ft fireball. It was one of the first ones. I believe they have made them safer now and I still carry and use one.
Seeing that they are used and purposely made for jumping vehicles and boats I don’t think they would sell them if they explode if left in the heat.Interesting -- I've always heard that you don't want to store them in hot places (inside a parked car or on the boat in the summer). Any truth to that?
Yeah, not necessarily explosion issues, just shortened life span and such.Seeing that they are used and purposely made for jumping vehicles and boats I don’t think they would sell them if they explode if left in the heat.
My buddy has one on his offshore boat at all times, a few others keep them in their console and numerous folks keep them in their vehicles in Texas summer heat. I’ve never heard of any of them having issues. I am about to grab one for my skiff.
Like so many things they are cheap and therefore disposable. I will replace mine every couple years whether it has been used or not. To my knowledge there is no way to test under load like a car battery. So out with the old and in with the new.Yeah, not necessarily explosion issues, just shortened life span and such.
