Having to Invest in a Good Jump Starter

Finding the Best Jump Starter

I wish all trucks had an auto shut-off button so that I could turn off the vehicles electrical systems including the headlights and all electronics, so that if you forget to turn these off you don’t end with a dead battery when you come to starting it in the morning.¬† Well as you may have guessed that’s what happened to me.

My Toyota would turn off the headlights and all electronics but my Honda would not. Having been spoiled by the Toyota, I often forget to turn off the headlights and interior lights on my Honda, resulting in a dead battery.

So I went on the search for the best portable jump starter for a reasonable price. I stumbled onto the Clore JNC300XL Jump Starter that had some great user ratings. Since I bought this jump starter, fortunately I didn’t have to use it because I never ran into a situation.

Is the Best Cordless Strimmer a Petrol Model

Most people I speak to don’t especially want a petrol strimmer if they can help it, most would prefer a cordless one since they are generally easier to maintain and to use. But it all depends on your situation an requirements:

  • How large is your lawn?
  • What weight can you lift?
  • Do you mind too much noise?

I have had numerous models but the best grass strimmer¬† I have had an opportunity to use is the Bosch Acutrim 18v strimmer (with plastic cutters not line). Its perfect for doing the edges of a plot and small areas of grass and light weeds, though I wouldn’t try it on anything too tough. Its fairly light and very quiet.
