600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509 | A Must-Have

600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509 | A Must-Have

If you’ve read Power Dome EX 2454 vs Power Dome NX 2485 : The Winner is… (if you have not already done so, we suggest that you do now), you’ll find side-by-side comparison tables, pros and cons, where to buy the pair, etc.

Today’s super star is the 600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509, which we fall in love with based on look (how shallow of us!) and substance (functionality).

Look

The 600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509‘s beautiful design is irresistible. It’s a marriage of aesthetic and practicality made in technological heaven. The result is nothing short of an enviable artistic masterpiece. If People Magazine had a sexiest-jump-starter-alive category, the 600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509 would have been the undisputed winner, in our opinion. But no matter how good or sexy- looking is the Jump Starter, it is useless to you if it cannot render any concrete service in time of need. Let’s explore the sum and substance of its features and functionality.

Functionality

Basically, the 600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509 can provide emergency lighting; jump start a car; inflate tires, air mattresses, etc.; charge cell phones and other electronic devices through the USB Power Ports; power a mini inverter (not supplied), cell phone charging adapter, cordless phones, tablets, cameras, etc. through the built-in 12V DC Sockets.

Shortcomings

Radio

Unlike its counterparts, the Power Dome EX 2454 and the Power Dome NX 2485 which sport respectively an analog and digital AM/FM radio tuner, the 600-Amp Battery Jumper 2509, unfortunately, is not so endowed. That gap can be bridged with a Mini Digital Portable Music MP3 Player USB Disk Micro SD/TF Speaker FM Radio TA.

AC Power Source

Noticeably absent in the 600-Amp Battery Jumper 2509 is an AC Power Source, which the Power Dome EX 2454 and the Power Dome NX 2485 have plenty of through respective built-in power inverters. Again, that’s a void that can be filled with a 100W – 200W mini power inverter (Smart AC 100 USB, Smart AC 100W USB+, Smart AC 120W USB, Smart AC 150 USB, Smart AC 210 USB, etc., sold separately) by plugging the inverter into the jump starter’s 12V DC Socket. Plugging the mini power inverter into the single DC Socket will deprive the unit of a sorely needed 12V DC Socket. To make up for that loss, we strongly suggest the purchase of either the following mini power inverters:

Both mini power inverters have an extra built-in 12V DC Socket.

Smart AC 100W USB+ 2405-5 Smart AC 120W USB 2413-6

12V DC Socket

The 600-Amp Battery Jumper 2509 has a single 12V DC Socket, which can be converted into multiple 12V DC Sockets (without increasing amperage) by plugging either of the following Multi-Socket Adapters into the built-in 12V DC Socket:

3-Way Socket 9794

Twin USB Sockets 2535-5

4-Way Socket 9139

Twin USB Sockets 2438

PowerCup 6.2 2886

Dual DC Sockets 2638

Buying Decision

Do not be deterred by the triumvirate of disadvantages (absence of built-in radio tuner and AC power source, single 12V DC Socket, which we show you how to easily overcome) to refrain from buying the 600-Amp Battery Jumper 2509, which, in the scheme of things, is a great value.

Replacement Parts

The following parts are replaceable:

  • AC Charging Adapter

  • DC Charging Adapter, and

  • Battery (12V 15.5AH, Jumper Pack – AA5022)

If the AC Charging Adapter is lost, misplaced, or out-of-order, the 600 Amp Battery Jumper 2509 can still be recharged through a vehicle’s cigarette lighter, or at home with the supplied DC Charging Adapter and either of the following optional complementary accessories:

Conclusion

In today’s topsy-turvy world, the question is not if, but when the next emergency strikes (blackouts, brownouts, power outages, natural and man-made disasters, etc.), will you be ready? While the 600-Amp Battery Jumper 2509 cannot power energy-guzzlers such as fridges, freezers, air conditioners, etc.; it will certainly come in handy for cell phone charging, radio playing, TV watching, laptop energizing, emergency lighting, fan powering, vehicle jump starting, tire inflating, etc., in time of emergency; provided that you’ve had the foresight to acquire the unit and its recommended complementary accessories (inverter, mini radio set, multi-socket adapter, AC to DC power adapter, and solar panel) in advance: now!
