Ferfal,If a car or truck is part of your survival plan or for every day use in a post disaster area, then you would be smart to acquire a "jumpbox".This is a small car battery sealed in a plastic case with jumper cables and 12V outlets that will jump start a vehicle. You might have to get going in a hurry, or be stuck in a bad neighborhood with little time or safety to call an emergency service or get help from a stranger, so having your own jumpbox could be a lifesaver. It can also double as an emergency power source (with an inverter) or a cel phone charger) with an Igo car adapter. They can be charged at home with an adapter, or kept topped up through your vehicle's cigarette lighter.
Love your site. Hope you find this useful.Marvin
Hi Marvin, that’s a pretty neat recommendation, thanks.
I can tell you that having car problems in most of the suburbs of Buenos Aires is a bad idea. Even in the main arteries such as highways and avenues you don’t want to be left on foot when you’re out of the safer capital district.
I like this Energizer All-in One model that, besides the jump starter itself, pretty much has all other things you could wish for: Two 12V cigarette sockets, a compressor, flex-neck work light and even a DC/AC Power inverter with a fan to prevent overheating.
Energizer 84020 12V All-In-One Jump-Start System with Built-In Air Compressor and Power Inverter $100.00
Take care guys,
