It is a charger, not a booster. It will take sometime before you are able start the disabled car. The good thing is that there is no wrong way to connect, fan blades to watch for and you can sit in your car. Perfect for my wife.

Just checked product page. They do not say how long the cables are?!? Why not? They look like they might be very short based on the pictures.

@topdog2bloomingdogs: Actually it is a booster cable, as it has no power of its own. You have to plug one end to a car that has a charged battery, and the other to a car with a discharged battery. It is the same as having real booster cables, except this product takes forever to charge the disabled car.

Do yourself a favor, get real booster cables, you will be thankful when the time comes to use them.

@dmmutti: Agreed, particularly when you're depending on a stranger for a jump. Most people are willing to help for a few minutes, but not to wait a long while for these to work. I have to consider them a gimmick unless it's for your two vehicles at home that don't need to be moved for a while.

A few extra bucks for heavy-duty cables is well worth it, and a good gift for anyone who's bought a first car.
