The Volitiger compact jump starter is definitely a piece of kit that is both cool looking and understated. With dimensions of approximately 6.5 x 3.0 x 1.0 inches, you will be utterly surprised at just how much power this jump starter has, and yet it is still coupled with a multitude of extra features.
Medium Cranking Current Output – Good For Most Situations
In terms of technical specifications, the device is capable of pushing out a peak current of 400A, which may sound a little on the low side but is more than sufficient to start most petrol engines up to a capacity of 5L and diesel engines up to 3.5L (with the typical sized batteries fitted to these vehicles). The manufacturer further claims that the jump starter will be able to start these engines up to 15 times on a single charge. This is obviously dependent on the actual state of the battery you’re trying to jump, but is nonetheless an impressive claim, again, given the really compact size of the device. Volitiger is also not a company who would make such claims flippantly, so they actually carry some weight.
Excellent Flashlight and Great Battery Capacity
Features wise, the unit is fairly similar to the DinTo Compact Jump Starter in that it has exceptionally bright LED lighting with three lighting modes – stationary, strobe and SOS signaling – and out of the box, it should provide around 140 hours of lighting. Hopefully you’re not stranded long enough to actually test this though! It also has power bank functionality with adapters included to charge iPhones, micro-USB devices (which covers the large majority of modern phones) and mini USB devices. It further goes without saying that this jump starter would also be perfect for starting pretty much any motorcycle.
The charge capacity of the Volitiger compact jump starter is about 16500mAh which is good for its size. The benefit of a smaller capacity is that it can charge more quickly (just 3hours for this device) and then supply its peak rated current if needed for your vehicle. As the jump starter discharges, its deliverable peak current naturally diminishes. A larger capacity jump starter can take longer to fully charge (depending on the charging circuit fitted to the jump starter of course) and may therefore need longer before it will be able to supply its peak current.
All the Protection you Need
In terms of safety, the Volitiger jump starter definitely has you covered with over current protection (won’t give more than the peak current it’s designed for), short circuit protection (if you touch the positive and negative cables together it won’t blow up!), overload protection (won’t let you push more current into it than it’s designed for when charging), over-voltage protection (protected from too high voltages being applied to the device), over-charge protection (will float charge itself, so once full it won’t keep increasing the charge voltage and over-charge or destroy the cells of the device’s batteries).
Unique Feature – A Pocket Knife!
Included with the unit is also a multi-tool pocket knife (similar to a Swiss knife) which I thought was actually a really nice extra. Kept with the device itself in the included carrying case, which is also small at about 11 x 8.5 x 2.0 inches, it can be a useful tool set in a pinch.
Volitiger has also really established itself in the battery industry over the past few years, being commercially active for over 20 years and recognized in more than 32 countries around the world, so you can be sure you’re getting a top quality product that will certainly be worth every cent you pay for it.
