A conventional PowerPack traditionally contains a standard lead acid battery, which makes the units big and heavy. However, new technology is being harnessed to provide smaller, yet equally powerful units.

Ring’s new RPP900 Lithium ion PowerPack is capable of jump-starting cars and light commercial vehicles, with the advantage of being compact in size and lightweight.

Suitable for vehicles with a petrol engine size up to 2-litre, Ring’s hand-held Lithium PowerPack provides a source of power for emergency starts or breakdown assistance. Its high power 2.1A USB socket means it with also recharge mobile phones, tablet devices and other portable electronic devices.

Tested in garages, car showrooms and vehicle leasing companies, the Powerpack will do multiple jump-starts before needing to be recharged. The quick 4½ hours recharge time means the unit can be quickly reused within a working day. An AC charging adaptor and DC charging lead are supplied with the unit ensuring it can be recharged via the mains and on the move via a vehicle’s 12v power socket.

The PowerPack features reverse polarity, short circuit and anti-spike protection to prevent damage to the vehicle’s battery and electronics or the PowerPack itself, if used incorrectly, giving users peace of mind.

An LED is fitted to the help illuminate the battery in the engine bay, if needed to be used at night

With cold weather affecting batteries and drivers relying more and more on electronic gadgets in their cars, it makes sense to carry a portable power pack around in your boot.

RPP900 Lithium PowerPack has a suggested RRP of £99.99 with more information from www.ringautomotive.co.uk ENDS.
