Jump-Starter & Power Bank

Go to any car show or cruise and there always seems to be someone who either needs a jump-start or a charger for his or her phone. Well now OEMTools has a great solution with the introduction of their PPS-X Personal Power Source.

The unit is perfect for emergencies and it’s a handy power source that comes with their unique Smart Jump cables. In addition to jump-starting cars (even with diesel and V-8 engines), the unit can also recharge mobile phones and laptops and it’s TSA friendly, so you can travel with it. Inside the sleek packaging, it houses a rechargeable 18,000-mAh lithium-ion battery, thus providing longer life and the ability to hold a charge for up to a year. The battery bank also comes with an energy-efficient LED flashlight with multiple modes, including steady light stream, a strobe, and SOS. The easy-to-use Smart Jump cables ensure a proper charge to protect against overheating and the unit is smart enough to only operate if clamps and battery posts are connected properly, to avoid sparking and prevent personal injury.

Let There Be Light

My friend once brought over a $10 novelty flashlight he bought on an infomercial. He was eager to show it off, so I took a look. I turned it on, shined it into the backyard, handed it back to him, and asked him if his daughter knew her flashlight was missing. As he stood there in shock, I told him it was cute and asked if they made them for men. Needless to say, he threw it away.

Seriously folks, stop buying cheap little flashlights that promise the world only to be tricked every few years. Invest in a quality light and it’ll pay itself off over time. A great example is the OEMTools 24648 Rechargeable Multi-Head Work Light Set. Designed for functionality and ease-of-use, this multihead work light with magnetic base features a quick-release coupler, so you can effortlessly change between lighting accessories.

The powerful 350 Lumens Flashlight attachment has a 150m beam distance and is drop-resistant to 1 m. Stuck in a tight spot? Pull the quick-release coupler to detach the flashlight, and snap in the 15-inch Flex Light attachment. The flexible extension lets you maneuver the focusing lens through a small passageway to get 180 lumens of light where you need it. The dual-function inspection light attachment has a max output of 350 lumens and features a UV setting. This all-in-one work light set includes everything you need—from everyday tasks to A/C leak detection. This kit includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, USB charging cord, adapter, and a magnetic 180-degree swivel hook for hands-free operation.
