Anyone carry a mini jump pack?

I'm thinking one of these that recharge off 12v and can be used to recharge a phone or jump start the bike. They look small enough to fit under the seat.

My father in law is a mechanic and got one from his Mac or Matco Tools guy as a gift. Obviously, one of those brands. The thing is awesome! He also has a hobby farm, raising a couple head of cattle every year, and some small crops. Mainly for the family. He has used that thing to jump his tractors, his ATVs on hunting trips, power his cell phone, etc... I will be asking for one for Christmas.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

I wonder what power level would be good. They seem to vary quite a bit.

There is a slightly smaller one that comes in a soft case.

Looks to be a better fit in luggage. The "safety" for reverse polarity is a fuse that blows in the special cable. Those clamps look a little big to fit on a motorcycle battery post properly.

Be prepared to modify the connector to use it.
