Portable Jump Starter
The Durst Booster 8, the best 12V 24V Jump Starter for trucks and large vehicles. Designed and engineered in Australia to tackle our unique climate and demands, this portable jump starter is a testament to quality and performance.
The Durst Booster 8 is a dual-voltage powerhouse, offering both 12V and 24V capabilities. At 12 volts, it boasts an impressive Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of 1,200 and a Peak Amps (PA) rating of 7,600. When switched to 24 volts, it still delivers a substantial CCA of 600 and a PA of 3,800. This versatility ensures that it can handle a wide range of vehicles, from standard 12V passenger cars to heavy-duty 24V trucks.
One of its standout features is the use of two 22 Ah Durst 212 HP AGM batteries, ensuring ample power for reliable jump-starting. These batteries are locally sourced and user-serviceable, contributing to both convenience and sustainability.
Safety is paramount, and the Durst Booster 8 is designed with this principle in mind. It complies with Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) regulations, providing peace of mind for both professional mechanics and individual users. Features like reverse polarity protection with a warning buzzer and LED indicator light, as well as anti-spike protection, enhance its safety profile.
The Durst Booster 8 also incorporates a Battery Isolation Switch, allowing you to select between 12V and 24V operation effortlessly. The inclusion of a voltage selection and indicator light further simplifies the user experience.
Durability and longevity are assured with this jump starter. Housed in a rugged, powder-coated steel cabinet, it can withstand the rigors of heavy use. The fuse is ignition-protected and auto-resetting in case of a short circuit, ensuring uninterrupted operation.
Physical and dimensional properties are carefully considered, with user-friendliness in mind. The unit weighs approximately 20 kg, making it manageable yet robust. With dimensions of 280 mm (W) x 260 mm (L) x 360 mm (H), it strikes a balance between portability and performance.
The cables, measuring 150 cm in length and featuring 70 mm2 (AWG2/0) Superflex dual-insulated pure multi-strand copper, ensure efficient power transfer. The clamps are 1000A insulated extra-heavy-duty, nickel-plated copper, guaranteeing a secure and reliable connection.
Monitoring the battery’s status is effortless with the multifunction digital volt meter, providing real-time information. The jump starter is computer-safe, preventing any harm to the vehicle’s electronics during the jump-starting process.
For added convenience, an optional trolley is available to facilitate transportation. The Durst Booster 8 can be charged using a DC charger (optional) or the included automatic AC charger (Durst BCS-A1206).
Serviceability is a key advantage of the Durst Booster 8. It’s user-serviceable, and servicing it does not void the warranty, ensuring that it can serve you reliably for years to come.
