The Fluance DB12 home subwoofer has a stylish cabinet design and full feature set, but we were underwhelmed by it during our listening tests.

Jump-starting a car requires significant electrical power, and the Clore Jump-N-Carry has it in abundance. This is the second most powerful jump-starter we reviewed in terms of cold cranking amps (CCA). It's no slouch when it comes to portability either.
The GOOLOO GP200 jump-starter uses a lithium-ion power source to deliver a 1,000-amp peak current similar to the Clore Jump-N-Carry and the Stanley J5C09, which is enough power to revive a V8 gas or diesel engine, even in cold temperatures.

Much like the Stanley J5C09 and the GOOLOO GP200, the NOCO GB40 uses a lithium-ion power source to deliver 1000-amps of jump-starting power, which is enough power to jump-start V8 gas motors and V6 diesel motors.
