Peak Current Test Of TACKLIFE 1200A Jump Starter

TACKLIFE is the best affordable mid-range jump starter. The TACKLIFE claims that this jump starter produces a peak current of 1200Amps.

And honestly speaking, I don’t really know under what criteria these readings are taken.

So I tried testing it on my own, I tested this jump starter on a carbon pile load tester. And the peak current produced by this jump starter is around 500Amps at 4.5Volts and lasted up to 4 seconds before it powered itself off. 

For an inexpensive jump starter, this is great reading. With this amount of peak current, it can easily start a mid-size vehicle with a partially dead battery (12V).
