Winter may be over, but a car or motorcycle battery can go bad on you any time of year. Plus, in many parts of the United States, you may still face another couple of months of cold weather. That’s why it’s still important to have a jump starter on hand, like one of the name-brand Noco starters currently discounted on Amazon, or the other brands we’ve selected here.
When picking out a starter, be sure to select one rated for jumping the vehicle with the largest engine in your household—you don’t know when a family member will need your help. If you don’t know how big of an engine you need to turn, you can work that out from the documentation included with your vehicle, or by decoding its VIN plate. That said, it still doesn’t hurt to over-buy in the name of extra cranking power or to have the ability to help out a stranger in need.
