The Philippines is in the Ring of Fire, and as history has shown, there’s no telling what kind of calamity will befall us. And if you so happen to be riding in your car when the big flood, typhoon, or earthquake happens, being prepared will spell the difference between life and death.
Just kidding. It’s not our intention to spread fear and panic. We just love cool and handy gadgets that are great to keep in the car.
The most recent tech tool to land on the Top Gear PH desk is the OMP Jump Starter. Available at all Blade stores for just P6,999, it’s the power bank to end all power banks.
It can charge up cooler boxes, cell phones, and laptops. What’s the best part? The OMP Jump Starter can provide enough juice to crank the starter of your car over—even if it’s a big V6. It can start a diesel-fed ride, too. That’s because of its 15,000mah rating. The device, which can be held in one hand and is as big as roughly five cigarette packs side by side, has multiple outputs to match your devices well. If you need the juice, this little guy can deliver.
Imagine this apocalypse scenario: Your car has been damaged and rendered useless after a natural disaster. Far from home, you need to keep your phone charged for any hope of getting rescued. You can still power your communication and survival devices until help arrives. When all else fails and you need a power source, this is an essential tool to keep in your emergency bag. Just be sure to read the simple instructions before using it.
The OMP Jump Starter comes with a durable carrying pouch. Inside are all of the necessary wires and connections that you need for charging it, and for wiring it up to your car’s battery for a quick jumpstart. And it has a flashlight, too, because why wouldn’t it?
Are you a doomsday prepper? Then you need this baby in your arsenal. And if you are a motorist and don’t want to be stranded because of a drained battery, then the OMP Jump Start is an in-car essential.
