It's easy to take for granted your car's ability to start up when you turn the key — until one day, it doesn't. Then, you're left with two options: Try to get a friend to come over and give you a jump, or call a mechanic for help. Both can cost you time and money, two things no one has available these days.

Turns out, there's another solution. You can invest in a portable car jump starter to keep around for the just-in-case. And, just for today, Amazon has slashed prices on top-rated Nexpow portable jump starters. Right now, you can save nearly 40 percent off these life-savers.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

There's a lot to love about the Nexpow 2500A Car Battery Starter, like the fact that it can hold a charge for more than three months! It's able to easily start cars, motorcycles, watercraft, ATVs, lawnmowers, yachts, boat, pickups and snowmobiles. Once you need to recharge it, it'll be good to go again within just a few hours. This starter comes equipped with super bright LED light that works as an emergency flashlight with four modes: spotlight, strobe, SOS and a red and blue warning. It also features a quick-charge port that charges devices at 1.8 times the speed of a standard port. A five-star fan called this an "excellent buy," writing, "Within 30 seconds, I put the key in the ignition and it turned on. I removed the clamps and turned off the jump starter and removed the clamps. It’s so easy to use. As a woman who doesn’t know much about car issues, I used it and it worked."
