advantages of the cmxcesm256 craftsman portable power station

Great PriceFor No products found. dollars you are getting a unit that can power up all your needs, and the best is if you compare it with similar portable power stations, you may not find a better deal.
Portable DesignThe CMXCESM256 has a handle at the top so you can easily carry it and take it anywhere you go.
All in one unitThis is a jump starter, a portable power source for USB devices, a powerful power inverter that turns on your AC devices, a flashlight and a tire inflator, all in one unit, and at a great price.
1200 CCAMost cars with 4 to 8 cylinder engines require between 200 and 500 Amps from the battery to start. This Craftsman supplies up to 1200 peak amp so you have more than you need to easily crank any car.
Embedded air compressorA flat tire won’t stop your day. This Craftsman jump starter comes with an air compressor that gives up to 100 PSI. Again, most commercial cars only need 32 to 40 PSI, so you have more than what you need.
Reverse connection detectionAvoid the potential damage to your car with the reverse connection detection. This jump starter and power station won’t supply any power to your car if you connect the clamps in the wrong order (a very common mistake), thus, it will avoid damaging your car’s electronics. You don’t have this protection with common jumper cables.
AC outlet with power inverterThis Craftsman jump starter not only supplies 1200 peak amps, but also comes with a powerful 200W power inverter that can turn on 100W bulbs and other electronics to help you during a blackout.
USB PortsThis unit comes with 4 USB ports, 2 are type A and 2 are type C. Thus, you’ll never run out of power in your cell phone or tablet.
Digital DisplayThis display shows useful information like the voltage of your car battery and the tire pressure setting.
Embedded flashlightA flashlight always comes handy to illuminate your way and do a successful jump starter if you happen to be in a low light situation.
