Thanks for the laugh this morning. That laugh just saved me a bunch of money. I was admiring the largest power pack Noco had plus one of their 3 bank battery chargers to keep the batteries topped off when stored. Added the XP10 to my list.
The first AntiGravity XP1 I bought, shortly after they hit the market, came from the Snap-On truck. Not manufactured by nor labeled for Snap-On. I liked the XP1 enough that I ordered another one from the same Snap-On truck. That next one was not AntiGravity, but an "incredible simulation," labeled AllTrade or some other Chinese junk brand, so I returned it. I now have a couple of XP1s and and XP10, plus a couple of no-name knockoffs from Amazon. The lithium jump packs have become commodities, with wildly varying specs and probably widely varying quality. I have not seen a "Snap-On" pack, but they are probably just private labeled by some Chinese factory. When I learned a few years ago that the hyper-expensive Snap-On pressure washers and hydraulic jacks were Chinese stuff that I could duplicate for 1/3 the price, I stopped thinking so highly of Snap-On.snap-on makes one that will start a dead 7.3 diesel. And won't light on fire like some others...
This one is actually pretty good. It has an AMG battery over the little tiny ones we are talking about in this thread that uses lithium batteriesI don't have one of the little USB ones I have the larger USB/Inverter/WorkLight/Compressor/Jumper and it's saved me twice jumping a dead battery while in a remote situation. But what I use it for most is the 12v outlets can run without the inverter, so add a 12v to USB cigarette plug and now you have a massive battery to recharge your phone, tablet, and camera while you sleep. It's silly but if you count how often i'm charging items off it it's one of the most used items I take with me.
I think I got mine on woot and it's a cheap generic brand but it's like this kind of thing:
I think my reply in this treed would give you some answers:Sorry to bump a 6 month old thread, but does anybody have any longterm feedback on the Microstart XP-10? I just ordered one.
My specific use would be to run a Whynter 45G fridge )
The toy arrived.
charged it fully as instructed.
And connected the 45-liter refrigerator in to simulates night camping while the fridge is disconnected from the main battery.
The starting points of the fridge temperature was 6 degrees Celsius, and I've set it to 4 degrees, which means that the compressor worked in full capacity for 15-20 min' and after reaching 4 deg, it worked in short intervals of few minutes each time (about 2 per hour), to keep the set temp.
The energy draw measured 2.5-3 amp while the compressor worked.
This small little Chinese-toy-Energy-Pack managed to keep the fridge's energy need for 12 hours and twenty minutes..
Room temperature was 24 degrees.
