“I live in Alaska, where we endure long dark winters with temperatures in the negatives. It is the norm to have engine block and oil pan heaters installed. Prior to this, my trusty 1999 Dodge Dakota has seen winters in Colorado, South Dakota and even Iceland.
Back then, I would carry an ordinary jump starter and after the first attempt to jump my truck, it would be useless. Which brings me to the ES5000. Fully charged, I leave it in my truck all winter and I NEVER have a problem starting my truck.
Two Christmases ago, I left my truck in long term parking for 10 days. When I got back, I learned that we had brutal negative temperatures. As expected, my truck did not start. I pulled out the ES5000 that had been in the truck and started my truck, plus 3 cars and a diesel truck. Not only did it still have charge, but because of its size, I was able to help those that parked facing in – making it impossible to get a regular jump start.
I now have one in each of my vehicles and so do my friends and their families, as the word gets passed on. The ES5000 gave me peace of mind when I drove through Yukon, where I would be lucky to see one car a day. Thanks again!”
