performs flawlessly

CARGUYDALLAS, Amazon Customer Review

“I work in the automotive industry both in sales as well as service. The PSJ 2212 DSR is truly a durable professional grade jump box. I have owned mine for well over 5 years and it still performs flawlessly. If you are a do it yourself or professional technician, this is the best jump box on the market to have in your tool set.

Like anything, if it is well cared for, no reason you should not get 10 years out of it. By the way, don’t sweat the issue with the extension cord for charging. When my microwave died, I cut the cord off the back, went to the hardware store and bought a repair end and attached it. That is how I charge the unit. Use your imagination here folks.”

Most of the users of this jump starter are happy with it. Some think that it has a great design and some that it works great. The PSJ-2212 does not have a compressor, or work light which is great as it keeps the unit simple.

Users even comment that it helped them in various occasions when they needed a portable power unit such as on a camping trip, power cut and boat trip. Many are impressed with the unit as it can instantly started a dead battery on cold mornings.

Pros
  • Can be used as a jump starter and as a portable power unit provides flexibility and opportunity to be used during camping and power outages.
  • Unit comes with 50 inch 4 gauge cables that are long enough to reach the battery while it stays on the ground.
  • Supplied with a long charge holding high output AGM battery. The AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery, is lighter, and more powerful than a gel cell battery.
Cons
  • The battery clamps are fairly large so you may struggle getting them into some battery compartments.
  • The unit is not supplied with its own power cord.

Verdict

With a list price of just over $200 the Schumacher PSJ-2212 makes it into our top range jump starter category. So what do you get for this sort of money. If you have been stranded more times the you can count then you might be impressed by the 2200 Peak Amps the PSJ-2212 can deliver to your flat battery.

And with its 22 Ah AGM battery the unit can hold its charge for long periods without having to be re-charged and can jump start a number of vehicles before requiring a recharge.

I’ve mentioned that the list price at the time of writing the review was just over $200. However you can find model online priced at between $140 – $200 based on the prices of used/reconditioned and new units.
