    All I know is I had a schoche one, and the second time I went to use it, the clamps broke. Both of them. Went to put the ground on, and snap! Went to put the positive on, and snap! Had to sort of hand hold them on. It still technically worked, but was a bit frustrating to have it fail like that.

    Fast forward to now; and I have a genesis dual battery setup. Which sort of can jump start off of itself.

    That’s what I have, have had it for over 2 years now and used it a couple times. I got it on Amazon prime day for about $65 I remember. I only charge it 1-2 a year and it’s never gone below 75% battery charge.

    I have the Noco one as well.

    It's a good unit.

    I've also had it a few years.

    Never had to use it on my truck, but the wife's Subaru and the mother-in-laws Honda have both required a couple of jumps.

    It worked every time.

    I've had the gb40 for around 2 years as well, it's been in the center console of the 4runner for the majority of that time. I've had to use it once when my battery started to give out and I found it fairly intuitive.

    I have the gb70 which is the same as you listed but just can be used on bigger cars (I tend to caravan with guys that drive full size pickups). I haven't used it on my 4Runner but used it 3 times on other cars and it works as advertised.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.

    I have the NOCO70 and it has been great and holds a full charge for a very long time.
    I charge it once a year.
    Used it multiple times, no issues and would buy again.

    I have an Antigravity XP-3. I've used it on my previous 5th gen, my dad's 4th gen, various other smaller vehicles and I've even used it to jump a 1969 London city double-deck transit bus that my previous employer owned. Still works great.

    I just picked up a S Type from Costco. Pretty darn cheap when they are on sale and has started my old 98 5.9 Durango with ease. I haven't had to use it yet on the 4Runner but it will be no problem. I recommend it.
