    Yea, there are lots of those types

    Tho, you could just double baggie it, and not pay for something you might not need. Or, I guess, in a storm, you might. Anywho, yea, they make em

    Cool. Anything with a USB I tend to get wet, if water is around.

    Dang it, I have to agree with Ducker. Have used mine to jump Truck, Ranager, Boat, even the generator, All this, & it fits in my blind bag. Don't leave home without it.

    I can delete that from your post, if you want. (In case you think better of it later)

    Just curious, asked on meany forums and never got any reasonable answer.
    If those lithium sooooo good, soooo light soooooo whatever... why not to install them permanently inserted of heavy acid ones. especially for boats. for the price of 1 marine battery you can buy at least 4 of those, and you safe 70% in weight.
    Why car manufacturers don't do it?

    They can’t hold that much amperage like a lead acid, I’d imagine. Believe they hold less power, but use a capacitor type setup to cause a sudden high amperage short lived burst.

    Not sure. I think they did an update this morning. Site was off-line when I woke up at 0430 my time (MST) Was back up by the time I got to work at the hut. You are right, I have seen several others, but didn't think anything of it.

    I will advise the powers that be.

    Frankly, not convincing. Its job just kick the motor in into working, then rest charging. If it can turn V6 5.L beast, why would it be a problem with 30HP 2 -3 cyl outboard? How much amperage one needs? Beyond my understanding.

    When my 24F car battery dies, i'll try this Costco one.

    Keep your phone warm. Next to body for me. Otherwise they don't last 8hr in 30 degrees.
