Cordless Power Source Jump-Starts Engines
The portable power source is 9 in. long, 6 in. wide, and 6 in. high. Its plastic case contains a sealed 12-volt lead-acid battery which can supply extremely high currents to start engines with dead batteries.
"Powerbank also offers the convenience and safety features of cordless tools but with better and longer lasting performance," says Conrad. "Powerbank supplies seven times more power than ordinary nickel-cadmium batteries so we market a line of 12-volt tools that can handle the extra power, including a power jack, lug nut remover-tightener, reversible two-speed drill, saw, small vacuum cleaner, a 10-watt fluorescent spotlight, 50-watt spotlight, and a 50-watt inspection lamp. Eventually we hope to market about 60 different tools and accessories. We also offer an adapter that allows you to use the Powerbank to run AC-powered tools. Powerbank has 120 watt-hours which will power a hand drill for eight hours before recharging. We plan to build a new model with 200 watt-hours that will be able to power a refrigerator or freezer for short periods of time. It can be recharged from an electric outlet or from a car cigarette lighter."
Sells for $200.
