PostSubject: 5 in 1 Heavy Duty Jump Starter - Modified   Fri Feb 24, 2012 2:59 pm

I recently bought a 5 in 1 heavy duty jump starter from Maplins for £59.99 which I thought was good as it sells for £89.99 in Argos. Its a well handy little tool as it has the 12v 300amp jump starter for the car, LED light, 2 x 12v power sockets, 260psi air compressor and a 200w inverter for normal house hold plug socketed items.

As with everything I own it's never left bog standard and I could see room for improvement

So I opened this bad boy up, connected up to the internal battery power source and hard wired a standard female connector like the ones that are on the battery tenders. I drilled a hole in the top to run the wires through and glued this additional standard female connector on to the top of the unit. Now rather than using the crappy charge unit that comes with this unit that can not be left on all the time, I can now connect it up to my spare battery tender when not being used and the 12v battery within the unit will be kept in tip top condition all the time.

Another first from Mr. Intruder. I am going to steal this idea and use it on mine, if you don't mind.
A whole lot better than the little charger that came with it.
