Portable Jump Starter Pack- lithium ion

I’ve been thinking about getting a small lithium ion portable jump starter pack. I’ve got a large jump starter pack that works ok but it’s getting old. It’s also to big to keep inside the truck all the time. Ive got jumper cables but that’s a PITA. I’ve probably helped jump start a dozen people in the last two years or so. I must look nice enough to ask and like I have cables and know how to use them.
One of these would be nice to have.
Any recommendations? Any real world experience?
I was looking at this one on amazon.

You are what you do when it counts
This is the one I bought. The one time I needed to use it, it wouldn't crank the truck. It was my bosses new Ram and the battery was dead dead. Took it a while on jumper cables to get it going. I let a couple of my techs borrow it and it worked for them. I keep cables in the truck just in case. I have use it to charge my phone. So there is that.

I have a pair of these, one for the Tundra and one for the Accord. Have not used it for a jump yet, have used to charge phones and other devices. I like the idea and concept of the unit, if it works awesome! If not I have cables and know how to use them.

This came today. I have another one coming tomorrow that @Migraine let me know about. This one is 2000A peak output 20800 mAh and will jump up to 8.0L gas, 6.5L diesel. Amazon must have sold out of them because the link doesn’t work and I can’t find them on there any more. This was $59.99 with discounts.

They are good for keeping things charged too. Pads, phones, ear buds. Want your feed back :)

This came today. It was $14 cheaper but came with more accessories and features. It has a little less power at 1200A peak output 12800 mAh but should be fine for most vehicles with up to 8.0L gas and 6.0L diesel. Both seem like they will work. I’ll try to test them out and report back. I like this one has a cigarette lighter adapter and a zipper on the accessory’s pouch.

I find it hard to believe that a battery that small can roll over a V8 by itself. disconnect the positive and connect that thing to the cables and report back. Something that small looks interesting. I wonder how long it lasts before it starts to lose capcity

Lithium ion has more power in a smaller package. It’s not made to run your vehicle. 🤦‍♂️ It’s made to give the battery and alternator system a boost if the battery is to drained to start the system itself. I’m not going to hooking this up like a stand alone car battery.

I have used a battery to start a Car/Truck when one is missing. Should run with out one but not great if it dies ;)

My thought was simulating a totally discharged battery.
