When a product line has fierce competition it forces the competing companies to keep on producing new and improved products. In some ways this is good news for the buyers because constant improvement means the products just keep getting better and better. But it can get somewhat expensive if your someone who likes to have the latest model to keep up with the times and see what all the fuss is about. It’s not really needed though as the older models are still more than capable.
The newer the product, the more advanced and error free it should be. Thankfully, most of the time that is the case. The previous 1byone is / was a big hitter in the market place, offering lots of power and versatility. And also being very well made. The reviews reflect its overall quality and effectiveness very well for getting the job done when it’s needed. Hopefully its never needed!
People love the latest and greatest on the market, and high-capacity plays a big role in this when it comes to portable car battery boosters. With so many other Jump Starters coming out which are more powerful, and have a user rating almost just as good as the original 1byone, it was time for an upgrade. And this new model is impressive.

This new, modern looking,12V1byone beats 95% of its competitors when it comes to capacity and raw power. It has a massive 800 Amp Peak Current and a 16000 mAh. The 800 Amp Peak is one of the highest on the market at this price. It’s two, very highly rated competitors, which are the Anypro and the DBPower DJS30 (And they are great devices by the way) have a 600 Amp Peak Current. So if you have a large vehicle with a big engine, you will want the highest Peak Amp. 600A is adequate for the majority of bigger engines. But with 800A, it’s the silver 1byone that is no doubt the clear winner here.
The built-in battery capacity is right up there too. It has one of the highest out there. However, the DBPower DJS30 has a 16500mAh power pack and the Anypro has 15000mAh. So the new 1byone sits nicely in the middle. All of them have a huge capacity and are capable of starting your vehicle (Upto 5L petrol & 3L Diesel) numerous times. And of course, don’t forget that Portable Jump Starters can also charge electrical devices that have use a USB port for charging, such as Smartphones, Tablets and laptops.
The can also re-charge itself by using your own car battery while the two are connected together, meaning that it always gets a bump of extra reserves, ensuring there is some power remaining should you need to jump-start your car again but are not able to plug the unit into the mains to give it a charge. And also very helpful if you didn’t take, or don’t have access to your car charger, (Plugs into the cigarette lighter / auxiliary socket) this clever feature is a life saver.
The size of this device hasn’t really been changed or improved. Of course, the design is space aged! But like the rest of the models, it is rather large in the hand, as you can see by the picture. But it’s not exactly huge. And this size is a big improvement over how big jump starters were a few years back. It’s small enough to easily stash in the boot or under a car seat. A really good jump starter that sits at the top of the tree when it comes to features, power, but also price.
