Jump Starters – Performance

More Performance & Safety In New Projecta Emergency Jump Starters

Increased levels of safety and more charging power are features of the two latest Emergency Jump Starters to join the market-leading Projecta range in New Zealand.

Utilising the latest high rate discharge Lithium Ion Phosphate (LIFePO) technology to provide maximum protection, safety and reliability, the new jump starters are available in two variants, a 950A 12V (LS950) unit and a more powerful 1250A (LS1250) 12V variant.

The Lithium Ion technology provides up to 1,800 battery cycles, representing around eight times more starting power than equivalent jump starters with lead acid components, which makes the new Lithium Jump Starters ideal for high use trade customers, as well as retail buyers.

Other benefits include a long storage life without the need for constant recharging, making them ideal for use in emergencies, as it means the units can be stored in a vehicle with the knowledge that they will be ready to go if the need arises.

“These new lithium-powered jump starters are compact, powerful and safe,” says Tim Paterson, National Sales Manager for NARVA New Zealand, which distributes Projecta battery products in this market.

“They hold their charge for long periods of time, which means they are more reliable when you need them in an emergency. With so many vehicles now having an automatic transmission, there is no opportunity to ‘bump-start’ them using the clutch, so these new Projecta Lithium Jump Starters are ideal for peace of mind and safety.”

Mr Paterson says boat owners should also think about taking a Projecta Lithium Jump Starter every time they set out on the water as a flat battery on the water can become a major problem very quickly.

Operating at 12V ensures that the Projecta Jump Starters are suitable for a majority of motorcycle, passenger car, four-wheel-drive and light commercial vehicles, along with marine batteries.

The LS950 boasts 950A peak amps and 290A clamp power, providing enough power to start diesel engines up to 3.2 litres in size and petrol power plants up to 6.0 litres. The larger LS1250, with its 1250A peak amps and 400A clamp power, takes this performance to a higher level, easily starting diesel engines with up to 4.5 litres displacement and petrol engines up to 7.0 litres.

To ensure the safety of the user, vehicle/craft and jump starter, the new Projecta models provide simple fool-proof connection and have a number of in-built protection measures including surge, over-voltage, battery-over-temperature, reverse polarity, short-circuit, over-current, over-cranking and under-voltage projection.

In addition to being jump starters, both the LS950 and LS1250 are also highly useful as power banks, allowing the owner to charge mobile phones, tablets and other portable devices such as SatNav systems via both units’ 2.1 and 1.0 Amp USB Ports, and can also power lighting at camp sites.

Other standard features across both models are heavy-duty, spark-free clamps and a digital screen that displays the vehicle and jump starter voltage.

Recharging the Projecta Jump Starters themselves is easy via 240V and 12V cigarette lighter plug chargers, so they can be topped up whilst on the move. Both models include a durable, padded carry bag for easy transportation and protection when not in use.

Projecta’s new 12V LS950 and LS1250 Emergency Lithium Iron Jump Starters can be purchased at leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
