The ultimate lifeline: this $60 power bank can jump start your car and charge your iPhone

When I turned 16 my dad gave me one of those old school car jump starters that took up half my trunk. This Anker 10000mAh Power Bank is only 0.8 x 0.6 x 0.2-inches (fits in a glovebox) and not only can it jump start your car, but it also has two USB ports so you can charge your iPhone or any other USB-powered device. It’s currently priced at $79.99 from AnkerDirect on Amazon, but if you apply coupon code FLVYCLGE at checkout your final price will drop to $59.99 shipped.

Along with powering your car and iPhone during an emergency, it also has a built-in LED flash light to help you see underneath your hood. The kit includes: Anker Jump Starter Portable Charger, Jumper Cables, 15V Wall Charger, 15V Car Charger, welcome guide, and an 18-month warranty. This charger hit Amazon earlier this year and has already amassed a 4.8 out of 5 star rating.

Still have questions about how it works? This video review walks you through how to jump start your car with this charger.
