Hi all,

There was a recent post about keeping a jump starter/charger on your boat incase you drain the batteries. NOCO brand was mentioned. I'd like to get one and was thinking the G7200. This would let me jump both 12 and 24 volts. Before I pulled the trigger on this, I was wondering what everyone else has, and if there was a better one for boat use.

                                             Thanks

                                                   Jim

You only need to jump start a 12V cranking battery. Norco makes good reliable products.

I have a 24 volt Ulterra . I was thinking if I ever drained the battery it would be nice to jump it so I could power stow it.

I'm carrying this one ~

It rides in the Lund for the entire soft water season and in the back of the 6.2L GMC all winter.

Just check the charge on it the other day - still full boost; that's since November.

:smiley:

You don't have to spend a lot. I have 3 of these, Anti-Gravity ones, but I bought them about 3 years ago when they were about $75 each. Now they are more expensive, around $110 but you can find other ones. Read the reviews on Amazon. 

 

I was able to jump start my 2011 F150 multiple times and my 2011 Ford Fusion like 15 times. I did recharge after ever use though.

 

One time my TM batteries went out stranding us at the other end of the lake and I thought it needed a jump...it didn't, they were just dead. The little jumpstarter powered my TM and we used the TM to take my friend and I all the way back to the landing which was a 30 minute ride (my outboard wasn't working otherwise I would have used that).

This one is about $90 and has good reviews.

As you probably saw on that other thread I bought the gb40 from noco. Since then I have received it, and while I haven't used it yet, it seems like it's built well and its nice and small for what it is able to do. For me I'm not as worried about running my 24v trolling motor system out of charge as I am running my cranking battery down with my electronics. With the gb40 on board I'll have peace of mind that I will always be able to get my boat started and back to the ramp in time for weigh in.

Doing more research I'm leaning towards the gb40 myself. What type of plug came with this to charge it?

                                     Thanks

Its a micro USB cord that plugs into the car charger it comes with, but the USB cord is removable so you can use it with a wall charger too.

Ha. It had a bad battery and I couldn't afford to buy a new one. So rather than buy a new one I just jumped it a few times.

I've got a silly question...and don't take this the wrong way...but how did you wind up needing to jump start your vehicles that many times?

Thanks for the replies and info. I just ordered the NOCO gb40 from northern tool. Had a 20% off thing so it only cost me $ 80.
