Portable Jump Starter

I'm wanting to get a portable jump starter to take along in case of an emergency. I have a 2012 F250 6.7 diesel and wonder how much power (amps) I would need to crank it. It currently has two 750 CCA batteries. I don't need the frills that come along with some of them, just starting power. Anyone have this diesel and a jump starter that is compatible?

No idea about anything you asked.

I can only say that during my debacle in Ohio, when I let my batteries die badly- it took a good 10 minutes of being hooked up to my neighbors truck to get the battery recharged to the point that I could start up.

I have one of these, and can say from experience, I have started a H1 diesel (dual battery system) a few times; and one day, for over an hour, cranked the engine numerous times to troubleshoot a fuel problem. I have also used it when working on my popup when I adjusted the limits switches for the power winch. Lifted and lowered the roof at least a half dozen time. (Too lazy to pull the batteries out of the garage an connect.)

Only frill is the charge port (accessory plug) can be used to power a small Cobra converter if needed.

You can charge it via the accessory plug from a running vehicle. I comes with a cord with two male plugs; this is a time charge and you must disconnect manually to keep from overcharging the battery. Or you can just plug a female end of an extension cord into the charge port; this is automatic and can be left plugged in at all times since it will cut charging automatically.

Just bought a Stanley FatMax 700 yesterday @ Walmart. Also has a compressor that goes up to 120 psi. Haven't used it yet, so I hope it will do.

No. But the majority of reviews like it. A couple of reviews said Amazon doesn't accept returns. I have returned a few items (not electrical) with no problems.
