Couldnt believe price for the value and from a large company. All others were going for well over $100 for something like this. Love that it has low charge alert in case it needs to be recharged. Just grab it and pack it to jump most any battery you need. Lawn mower problems? This gets you going. With Winter here I cant imagine how much use it will get. My Dad loves it! As a jumper he said it was simple to use and used it straight out of the box in an emergency even before the initial plug in and charge. No problems. That is however the only thing I didnt like though. You have to plug it in for 36 hrs before using it. Havent come across any other problems yet. Great Item!

My first one had to go back because it would not charge at all. The 2nd one came and it will only charge to 90%. Not worth all the work returning. You need a jump starter you can trust. This product is not it. Shop for another product even if you have to pay $10-$15 more. I don't trust the Peak product line after this experience.

Comments about 900 Amp Peak Jumpstarter:

Worked probably 2 out of the 2 dozens times I needed it and only on my quad (wouldn't start wife's van). Always charged it when warning came and charged it to full capacity but it would never hold. Now it won't even charge. Should of brought it back after the 1st month. Lesson learned....

    Comments about 900 Amp Peak Jumpstarter:

    I was told the unit came uncharged, but the meter read 88%. Tried it, did nothing. Charged overnight, stated Full, did not work. Charged for additional 24 hours (manual states 36 hours max), still would not start the V6.
    Might be better to buy a real battery and a trickle charger to keep it ready to go.

        In spite of being told by Advance's customer service that this would have sufficient power to start a Jetta diesel (TDI), it does not. This is very frustrating.

            I was very disappointed in the quality of this product. It feels very cheap in your hands. Bottom line, it would not jump my jeep cherokee. The good news is I took it back and got my money back. Going with a better brand next time.

                      Bought them as gifts for the bad North Dakota winter. I chose the 900 peak because both people who received them have 8 cylinder trucks and I wanted them to be safe. The price was very good and I buy my car parts at Advance auto.

                        Great unit & at a reasonable price. Easily starts a big V8. So far I've gotten a dozen starts off 1 charge and the unit still shows over 80% charge. The low charge alarm is a great feature also. I highly recommend this unit!

                            Hi Michele, glad to assist you! There are two versions of the PKC0AZ Jumpstarter. One unit requires an AC adapter which plugs into the wall and then into the charging jack on the front of the unit. This unit also has a series of lights across the top that identify the state of charge. The newer unit has a built in AC adapter with two fold out prongs which then can be connected to a light duty indoor type extension cord in order to charge the unit. This unit as a digital percentage readout with 2 red number and a blue percentage sign. I have forwarded the manual for both units to your email address so you can take a look on that for more information.

The older style PKC0AZ use a plug into the wall AC Charger. The specification on the charger are: 12 V DC and 300 ma output, center positive pin and the pin dimensions are 2.5 mm x 5.5 mm x 12 mm. I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance store and one of our parts pros will be glad to assist you with an availability of the AC Charger with this specification.

If the unit doesn't have a digital display, then you can't charge it with an extension cord. If it has LED lights that indicate the amount of charge, then you have to charge it with the wall adapter.

                          bought one today. Plugged it in & it started out at 97% charged & within in minutes flashed "FL". Does it need to continue charging for the 36 hours as suggested in the manual or can I use it now?

                            Hi Rex, good question! I would suggest you to continue charging the starter as suggested in the manual.
