Holiday stocking stuffer for charging your car and your iPhone

Cobra JumPack CPP 8000.

To Grandmother’s house, we go, well not till we can get the car started.

Just today I picked up a micro USB cable and threw it in my purse. I got in the Cadillac CTS-V, started it and plugged the cable into the car and my iPhone. What would happen though if my car wouldn’t start and my smartphone was dead? Introducing the Cobra JumPack CPP 8000.

You can power up both your car and your iPhone with the JumPack. Instead of throwing a cable in your purse the device is small enough to carry, 40 percent smaller than its predecessor, it with you anywhere you go and weighs just under 10 ounces. The JumPack CPP 8000 offers the dual capabilities of mobile-device charging and vehicle jumpstarting, including a range of cars, SUVs, motorcycles, outboard boat engines, multiple times.

The 8000 now offers added built-in protection circuitry including short circuit protection, reverse charge, over-charge and reverse polarity protection. The unit holds approximately 85 to 90 percent of its charge for up to eight months.

You can find the JumPack CPP 8000 at Best Buys, AT&T Wireless, or, if you were good, maybe in your stocking.
