It's easy to take for granted your car's ability to start up when you turn the key — until one day, it doesn't. Then you're left with two options: Try to get a friend to come over and give you a jump, or call a mechanic for help. Both can cost you time and money, two things no one has to spare these days. Turns out, there's another solution. You can invest in a portable car jump-starter to keep around for the just-in-case. And here's the one to get: Amazon just slashed the price of the top-rated DBPower portable jump starter to $48 with an on-page coupon — that's a markdown of nearly 50%!
With over 30% already knocked off the price, the additional 20% on-page coupon brings it down to just $48 — a lot less than calling a tow truck!
Why do I need this?
There's a lot to love about this jump starter, like the fact that it can jump your car up to 20 times on one charge with 800 amps of peak current and heavy-duty clamps and cables. It's also small enough to stash in your glovebox!
This jump starter is safe too. Its spray-gold intelligent jumper clamps have overcurrent protection, short-circuit protection, overload protection, overvoltage protection and overcharge protection to keep you safe when you're giving your car a jump.
An LCD screen can show how much remaining power you have, while a built-in compass can help you get home if you're lost. Once you're ready, simply plug the jump starter in at home to fire it up again.
What reviewers say
With more than 10,500 five-star reviews, this jump starter has a serious army of fans. "Awesome!" said one of them. "It is amazing how quickly (seconds after hookup) it worked to start a vehicle that had not responded to over 15 minutes in a traditional jump start. It is very easy to use, completely safe, compact, versatile and will be with me always."
"I love this little guy," raved another charged-up customer. "It is so handy. I have used it for my lawn mower, boat, truck etc! Works like a charm every time. My friends are all impressed I’ve already ordered two more of these as gifts."
Sure, the hope is that you'll never actually have to use a portable jump starter. But it's important to be prepared.

STORY: Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence startup is set to raise $1 billion through an equity offering. That’s according to a filing with U.S. regulators on Tuesday (December 5). xAI launched in July this year with some pretty big goals - understanding the universe, no less. Musk says it will be “maximally curious”, though he also continues to warn about the dangers posed by the technology: "Well, I think we are seeing the most disruptive force in history here. You know, we will have for the first time something that is smarter than the smartest human.”Fundraising for AI projects remains a bright spot for startups this year. Among other deals, ChatGPT-maker OpenAI secured $10 billion from major backer Microsoft. xAI last month launched its own chatbot - dubbed “Grok” - to rival ChatGPT and others. Musk has criticised competing products from big tech firms like Google as being riddled with censorship. His startup will be integrated into social network X, which he also owns, and available as a standalone app. The team behind it comes from Google’s DeepMind unit and other top tech names.
Google today announced the launch of its new Gemini large language model (LLM) and with that, the company also launched its new Cloud TPU v5p, an updated version of its Cloud TPU v5e, which launched into general availability earlier this year. A v5p pod consists of a total of 8,960 chips and is backed by Google's fastest interconnect yet, with up to 4,800 Gpbs per chip. It's no surprise that Google promises that these chips are significantly faster than the v4 TPUs.
Twitch, the popular video streaming service, plans to shut down its business in South Korea on February 27 after finding that operating in one of the world's largest esports markets is "prohibitively expensive." Twitch CEO Dan Clancy said the firm undertook a "significant effort" to reduce the network costs to operate in Korea, but ultimately the fees to operate in the East Asian nation was still 10 times more expensive than in most other countries. The ceasing of operations in Korea is a "unique situation," he wrote in a blog post.
Discord launched a major refresh of its mobile app on Tuesday, putting messaging front-and-center while making a host of small improvements that users have been asking for. Inspired by user feedback, the redesigned app tailors the mobile Discord experience for on-the-go use compared to its popular desktop app, while changing things up to better organize Discord's swiss army knife-like suite of social features. "Over time, the amount of *stuff* that Discord can do has grown exponentially."
Amazon has told Britain's antitrust authority its rival Microsoft uses business practices that restrict customer choice in the cloud computing market, the second major company to criticise the U.S. tech giant's operations. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) launched an investigation into the country’s cloud computing industry in October, following a referral from media regulator Ofcom that highlighted Amazon and Microsoft’s dominance of the market.
AT&T said on Monday it plans to use so-called ORAN technology for 70% of its wireless network traffic in the United States by late 2026 and will move from two telecom vendors to one. ORAN or open radio access network promises to radically cut costs for telecom operators as it uses cloud-based software and gear from many suppliers instead of relying on proprietary equipment supplied by a handful of companies that do not work with each other. While the technology has been tested by several telecom providers, it has not been widely adopted.
