Ring has introduced a professional heavy duty lithium jump starter for workshop use which is highly portable, thanks to its 2kg weight and compact size. The RPPL1000 has a 1000A starting capacity and 1500A peak current and is capable of performing multiple starts from one charge. It can be used for petrol and diesel engines up to 10,000cc, so can do the company cars and vans as well as bikes.
Recharging the unit takes two hours with the optional PD60W charger (sold separately) or four hours via a USB-C cable, and there’s a handy indicator on the front to show the charge level. Reverse polarity protection is built in, and there is an audible warning if the battery voltage is too low, less than 1V, indicating it is too depleted to be recovered. SRP is £299.99.
