Can I add a second question to the first?  How many have actually used it to jump something?  Amazon is full of reviews where they fail to perform.  I bought one anyway.  Charged it up according to the instructions and unhooked my car battery to see if it would start.  There was a grunt, but didn't even turn over once.  I still want one, though.  Just want one that works.
I have used my Antigravity unit to jump start my friends Goldwing multiple times when on a trip a couple years ago. It worked very well. I have carried in the pannier for several years now without a problem. I also use it to charge my phone when camping.

I have the Viking one from Harbor Freight.  With a coupon around $65.  I work at car dealership. I got tired of looking for a jump box. Plus they are heavy to haul around.

I have been using for about 3 months. I have used it about 20 times. It has jumped totally dead cars and tucks no problem. It is light, and can charge a cell phone.  It will be coming with me on my next trip.  Another advantage is it does not seem to run down when dormit.

I carry the Anti-Gravity also. Not so much for me but the camp buds to charge phones and such. I don’t leave home without it.

I have anti-gravity XP-1, I love it.  MY only beef is I have a 7.3L diesel and I misread to think this could jump it.  It cant, well I have not tried.  I have 3 diesels and need the XP-10........

I will eventually sell this one and buy the bigger one, I travel for work and the XP-1 goes in my backpack.  Smaller but I need the bigger one...........

Gday All,,I carry the jumper where ever I go on all my bikes. .also with the accessory pump. .my 650 versys died last month and I had to jump it multiple times to get home and it still had 80% charge left. I also carry a mini (antigravuty  brand ) battery on long remote trips..it's tiny ..both items don't take up much space..jn
