LokiThor Handles Automotive Troubles with the Force of Thunder
At this point, portable jump starters fall into that category that we consider “no-brainers” for anyone that spends any time at all in an automobile. They’re light, effective, and inexpensive enough that it just makes sense to have one in your vehicle in case of emergency. We’ve never seen one couple the ability to jump-start a drained battery with the ability to inflate a tire. However, the LokiThor Jump Starter and Tire Inflator (JA301) seems to do it. That makes for a roadside emergency solution that you need to at least take a look at.
What’s the Big Deal?
Easily, the biggest deal surrounding the LokiThor Jump Starter and Tire Inflator is its multifunctionality. It covers your bases for two of the most common car sicknesses: a dead battery and low tire pressure.
As a jump pack, you get 74Wh of battery capacity and a peak starting current of 2000A. It can handle jumping off drained batteries in up to 8.0L gas engines and 6.0L diesel engines. Like most modern jump packs, the LokiThor Jump Starter offers overvoltage, temperature, discharge, under-voltage, short circuit, continuous start, and abnormal cell voltage protection.
Jump starting your battery is basically fool-proof. You insert the jumper cables into the side of the pack and attach the cables to the corresponding battery terminals. Turn your car on, and disconnect the cables.
As a tire inflator, the LokiThor JA301 looks pretty capable. It fills tires quickly with 150 PSI max air pressure. It supports preset pressure settings with automatic inflation and stopping. You can view your pressure settings in either BAR or PSI, and the LokiThor Jump Starter and Tire Inflator comes with 4 types of inflation needles for a variety of applications.
Plus, in the event you find yourself with a dead phone battery and no other options, the LokiThor Jump Starter and Tire Inflator can get you back up and running with a quick-charge USB 3.0 port.

PS. Did you think we’d really get through an entire article without mentioning the rather “on-the-nose” name of this company? While we don’t see a lot of mischief going on with this product, the “god of thunder” moniker certainly makes sense given how much voltage and current this product puts out to start your vehicle. Perhaps the mischief part was simply the name itself!
