NOCO Genius Boost Pro
With 2k amps, this is perfect for larger engines, and extras like a flashlight and USB ports mean this is also a handy charger for your phone and when you’re camping. On the downside, you can only charge it via USB or a 12v car charger.
Measuring just 7.3 x 3.7 x 1.6 inches and weighing under 2lb, this jump-start pack still has the power to get most engines up and running. Capable of charging from the cigarette lighter in your car, it also boasts a variety of lights and USBs with adapters to handle all your gadgets.

Of course, changing car batteries every three years using a battery from a trusted supplier like http://www.grovesbatteries.co.uk/ means your battery will never go flat. If it does, this pack is compact enough to fit in a glove box or backpack, and it starts even larger engines several times as well as boosting up your phone or laptop when you’re on the move.
If you need serious extra power, then this is the go-to choice. Not as portable as the likes of the Antigravity or GOOLOO, it’s a heavy-duty power pack that will jump start everything, including a tractor.
