    Hardware Review: Allianz Mini Jump Starter


    What is it?

    The Allianz Mini Jump Starter is a portable vehicle jump starter with 5 volt charging and emergency light capability.

    What's in the box?
    The Mini Jump Starter comes with the portable charging unit, jumper cables, USB connector with various output possibilities, charging plugs for the home and automobile, instructions, and a convenient carrying case.

    The Verdict:

    The Allianz Mini Jump Starter is a great way to have power for both your car and portable devices in a pinch. With a six-month battery memory, it's a great device to leave in your vehicle until emergencies happen.



    What will they think of next? My first impression of the Allianz Mini Jump Starter was how in this age of portable power banks did manufacturers overlook the ability to charge both our cell phones and our vehicles? The Allianz Mini Jump Starter does just that. It wont fit into your pocket like most of today's 5 volt portable charging options, but they don't have the ability to boost our vehicle battery's with up to 400 amps of boosting power.



    The Mini Jump Starter device is simple to use to jump start a vehicle in an emergency. Simply connect the terminals to their proper battery polarities, plug the terminals into the battery bank, and power the Mini Jump Starter on. Then simply turn the key and the vehicle will start as intended. 5 volt charging works the same way. Connect the USB cable to the battery bank, and use one of the available connectors (iPod, Lightning, Mini USB, Micro USB) to charge a wide array of 5 volt devices like tablets and cell phones. There are two USB ports available on the battery bank; one 2.1 amp, and an 1 amp. Simultaneous charging of two devices is also available.



    The Allianz Mini Jump Starter will charge tablet and smartphone devices many times before it needs to be recharged itself. When jump starting a vehicle battery, it is advised that you recharge the battery bank after each jump start. The Mini Jump Starter LED will illuminate blue when its ready to charge, and turn to red when it's time to plug the battery in for a boost. Both home and car chargers are included to recharge the Mini Jump Starter.



    In other roadside problems that occur with vehicles, the Allianz Mini Jump Starter provides a convenient led light to help at night. This light can glow solid to use as a flashlight when trying to see inside the hood at night. It also has a flashing mode, which is perfect in scenarios that a stranded driver needs to summon someone for help, or to avoid a vehicle on the side of the road in low light situations.



    The Verdict:

    The Allianz Mini Jump Starter is a great way to have power for both your car and portable devices in a pinch. With a six-month battery memory, it's a great device to leave in your vehicle until emergencies happen.

    Do you have checked the car was not able to start, before connecting the jump starter?
    I don't have seen.

    Start the Engine without the jump starter. The Engine starts also.

    Nice Joke

    Sorry for this, but i can't believe on the powerfull option of this device.

    I've used the device 3 times in the few months I've owned it. Each situation has been similar, the drivers left their lights on, or the battery was in a "low" condition, not a "dead" (<9v) condition. I'd imagine it probably would not work in dead battery conditions, as the capacitive charge of something this small would be exhausted before getting the battery back up to healthy range. However, it was enough to "jump" start a battery so that the vehicle could turn over from a low condition. As I mentioned in the review, it's a device that will get you out of a roadside emergency. It's not a replacement for a much bigger and more expensive charger that will fully recharge a battery.
