The Nexpow G17 Jump Starter Puts Real Power in Your Hands
I still remember the days when a dead car or truck battery meant having someone pull up alongside you and running cables between the vehicles. While that certainly still works, new products like the Nexpow G17 2000A Jump Starter make that method a thing of the past—and boy, talk about convenience.
How The Nexpow G17 Jump Starter Works
The Nexpow G17 jump starter (and others like it) works using an internal Lithium-Polymer battery with quick discharge capabilities. This lets it deliver up to a maximum of 2000 amps. That’s 3 to 5 times better than their 2nd generation model.
This jump starter is capable of reviving up to a 7.5L gas engine or 6.5L diesel engine as many as 20 times. It features heavy-duty clamps and cables that are built to withstand extreme temperature swings from -4°-140°F and heavy electrical current. Keep in mind, the G17 isn’t limited to just cars and trucks. Use it to start up motorcycles, ATVs, riding lawnmowers, boats, and PWCs too!
Step 1: Insert the jumper cables into the G17’s EC5 interface. Be sure that the internal battery has at least a 25% charge prior to attempting to jump a battery.
Step 2: Connect the color-coded jumper cable leads onto your vehicle’s battery. Remember, the red clamp always corresponds to positive and the black clamp always corresponds to negative.
Step 3: Press the red button on top of the pack to activate the jump starter and proceed to start your vehicle as you normally would. Once the vehicle has turned on, immediately remove the jumper cable leads from your battery and then disconnect the cable from the Nexpow jump starter.
As with many portable jump starters in this category, the Nexpow G17 includes some helpful features to keep you safe and prevent accidental damage to your vehicle’s battery. The features protect you from reverse polarity, battery overload, excessive current, and high temperatures. Its onboard indicator notifies you immediately of incorrect use by sounding an audible buzz and flashing lights.

Size and Weight
One of our favorite features of these portable jump packs is their extremely compact profile, especially compared to a Pro-level jump starter! It weighs a mere 2.2 pounds and measures 9 inches from tip to tail. Everything you need to get started fits into a convenient storage case that easily stows in a vehicle’s trunk.
The blue USB output port on the Nexpow Jump Starter can charge mobile phones and even some laptops. It operates at either 5V/3A, 9V/2A, or 12V/1.5A. Another 5V 2.1A USB port provides fast charging for phones. The single USB-C port serves as the input charging port for the Nexpow G17 jump starter, but can also output 5V/3A.
The onboard LED work light has 3 modes—flashlight, strobe, and SOS. This multi-purpose flashlight is great for outdoors, indoors, camping, and emergencies.
