I think this is a good close out price and it is 19 amp hours.

Sale Price $29.99

A friend of mine (Charles) swears by these things for electrical back up. Have you seen a better deal? I can run my CPAP for two days on my 18 amp hour Jump-it.

I have the Coleman jump-it battery and it has a good air pump , and I have it set up to plug it in to my trailer with a flip of a switch and I have power.

I also have a jump start with a compressor. I make sure its charged before we leave on a trip and plug it into the accessory plug in the back of the Escalade while we travel.

I use it primarily to power the electric jack that I use to fine tune the Casita leveling after we set up camp.

It is also useful to add pressure to the tires on both RV and TV before leaving a campsite. Don't want to lose a tire tread due to low pressure in the tires.

I bought one of these several years ago to use as the sole power supply in our Boler (All it had to power was a couple fans). I've come to REALLY love having it around. I'll bring it camping to use topping off the tires on the trailer, sometimes the van, commonly the bikes. We take it to the drive-in and use it to power a boombox for the audio of the movie. Heck! I've even used it a few times to jump-start something. Great little gizmos!

Looks like a great deal to me. I have one but it's pretty heavy (25 lbs) and might be considered over kill at 24 amps. Got it, love it, use it. A bonus is that I don't have to carry weights with me to get a good workout.
