    There have been a couple different threads and even a GB on these noco packs, but i dont think i've seen anyone opt for the big boy.

    Thanks. It's a big truck so I thought a bigger one would be better.

    I have the gb40 as well and use it on lake trips to charge my phone. Numerous charges and still enough juice to jump if I ever needed it.

    I carry the GB70. Got it because of a killer Amazon lightning deal last year, otherwise i would have gone with the gb40. I have used it to charge cell phones and a tablet while camping and used the light to light up the camp site when needed. I also useit on the work bench when testing 12v items to make sure they work before installing on the truck.

    Honestly, I hate the new smart chargers. When I need a charge, the battery is usually damn near dead. The smart chargers won't charge one from dead. My dumb 18 year old Die Hard will charge one from dead.

    We have a GB70 at the shop and we have jumped an 08 F250 6.4 Powerstroke with dead batteries and it cranked right up. We have used it repeatedly and will get several jumps out of it before it runs out of juice. We have several bigger jump packs but the NOCO GB70 is extremely convenient and light weight for when we need to jump a car quickly. If you only need a jump pack as a backup or a just in case then the GB40 should do you fine. If you require something that you will use more regularly then I'd go for the GB70. All that aside they make great products, build quality is excellent. I'm actually looking at getting one of there bank chargers for my father's boat and possibly to maintain our fleet of vehicles.

    Bought a BG40 for 90 off ebay....saved my ass numerous times. On the lake where battery markups are 100% as well and just now when wifes battery died. I have maybe 20 jumps on the pack and showing 75% charge still. IMO a MUST have in any grab bag!

    I would like to upgrade my jump box from the POS I have. Very mixed reviews on the Noco. I wonder if there are any made in America?

    I've bought my NOCO on an Amazon deal and have fortunately only had to use it once on my ex sister in-laws 4Runner. It had been sitting in my truck for a few month okn the hot ass Texas hear and jumped it like a champ.

    Nice you opted for the big boy! My GB70 just came in today as well. All charged up and happily camping under the back seat. :D

    Nice! I know it's overkill but I like having that digital meter and also having a bigger battery pack can't hurt.

    I jumped a deadass ‘16 Duramax with my GB40 the other day. Just got it and was curious if it’d work. Took a few minutes to charge and it cranked right up. Took the battery to 75%. I figured it will do the Tundra just fine.

    Aaaaaand I just got the 150. Sigh. I’ll put the 40 in my wife’s car. Yeah, I did it for her. That should help the beating.
