Ever since Henry Ford made the first Model T, a car has been more than just a way to get around. It’s been a rite of passage. A form of self-expression. A private piece of paradise between a loud house and a crowded office. Your car takes care of you, and you need to be ready to take care of it, too.
So whether you can replace a transmission at the drop of a hat or a flat tire feels like the end of the world for you, listen up: Tacklife’s line of jump starters and accessories are reliable enough for the most seasoned pro, and intuitive enough for those of us with cars whose owner’s manuals might as well be written in Latin. And today only, Amazon’s offering this array of accessories for up to 50 percent off.
Less than nine inches long, under two pounds and able to pack a 1000A peak punch, the Tacklife T8 Max jump starter is a must to keep in your car, SUV or ATV — and it hardly takes up any space. It even comes equipped with an emergency flashlight and a backup power supply for mobile devices.
“When I was a kid, I remember my dad had a battery charger and an extra battery for his truck,” a shopper shared. “Not exactly portable. Ain't technology grand?! I ordered this guy after some quick review-checking in response to a dead 08 Honda Civic battery the night before. I grabbed the package off the porch when I got home, unwrapped it in the driveway and jumped the car in about the same space of time it would take me to make a cup of coffee with my Keurig. Brilliant! “
Most don’t appreciate the importance of tire pressure; a lot of folks see tires as only “flat” or “not flat.” But flat tires can be a real gas guzzler, and besides, who wants to spend big bucks at a car mechanic doing something that you can do in your own garage?
The Tacklife M1 Tire Inflator makes it super easy to check and maintain proper tire pressure. The HD LCD screen and digital gauge mean no more having to eyeball that little white stick (remember those?), and its 40L/Min air flow can inflate a flat tire in minutes. You can even use it on bikes.
“I would position it among the best compressors for the car I've tried,” one shopper noted. “Very portable, low noise, durable and effective. I regularly check my tires once a month with this compressor and every time I leave maintenance. Twice times I have had to use it with empty tires in emergencies and it works to the fullest. It has a pressure selector so you do not overfill your tires and a flashlight for use in dark moments. It is so easy to use and so convenient that I now have one in every vehicle in my home.”
Too often when we talk about tire pressure, we talk about cars. But more and more of us are biking these days, whether to get work, to get around town or just for fun. Thankfully, Tacklife offers a sleek, portable cordless tire gauge and inflator with an LCD digital pressure gauge and three different adapters, so you can inflate everything from a basketball to the tires of your sedan.
“We went on vacation that was 7 hours away from home,” a shopper recalled. “Ended up needing to put air in the rental we had. Our family who had their own rental needed air too! Came in really handy.”
This jump starter has an eye towards safety, with its spark-proof design and reverse polarity protection, but it clearly doesn’t skimp on efficiency either.
“I’m a first responder who had the opportunity to use this item at an outdoor movie car drive-in.” one reviewer noted. “At the end of the night, there were 6 cars that were inoperable due to drained batteries. I was able to jump each of the vehicles and get the citizens back mobile and still had over 80 percent of battery left.”
Don’t underestimate this compact air compressor. With an inflating speed of 1.4 CFM and a working pressure of up to 70PSI, this portable compressor is perfect for whatever life throws at you, and its compact design and carrying case make it easy for a quick-fix on the go. Even better: It’s 51 percent off.
“I am not a handywoman,” a reviewer shared. “But every car needs the emergency kit. And this is one of them. and it is so easy that even I can use it! It makes me feel safe with it going on a road tour. And I even used it to pump up bike. I love it. great bang for your buck!”
