    What brand battery charger/jump pack do you guys recommend? In the market for one as I feel it's a smart piece of equipment to have.

    I've got the XP-10 and so far it is great. Interweb reviews show this also.

    I just saw them for the first time just before Christmas. Couldn't believe how well the small ones work. Know a few people that carry the cell phone sized ones for snowmobiling and ATV's.

    just make sure whatever you get is rated for more than what you need it for. i know when i was looking at booster packs a lot of the smaller ones have bad review because they are so small that they are too tiny to boost much other than a tiny car. i bet people were trying to use them on larger than what they are rated for. personally i probably would not even consider a booster pack unless it puts out at least 1000amp

    Lol it was on sale for $149.99 when I got it...Not sure if that makes enough of a difference.

    $149.99 wouldn't be bad too bad since that is about what a battery costs but $400 is ridiculous. i could buy a brand new spare battery, a nice set of jumper cables and a air pump for that price.
