My car has a 55AH lead acid battery. It's got carry handles it's so HEAVY. My 1200cc BMW motorbike had a 14AH high spec all singing and dancing lead acid that weighed 10 pounds. I fitted a 4AH LiFePO4 battery to the bike. It weighed 2 pounds and was physically 1/4 of the volume. Yet it turned the engine faster than the lead acid. I put it on the car. Not only did it start the car easily, it also had no problem handling the load of the electric power steering AND the rear window heater. That particular power steering is especially fussy with low system volts. But no problems at all. HOWEVER, LiFePO4 struggles below 5 degrees C (40F approx). It needs a couple of failed starts to warm the battery core. It then works fine, BUT the car's clocks will have reset and some car electronics get uppity when volts go too low. The solution would be a built in heater core within the battery. In cold weather hit heat before turning the starter.

David Elliott: This is quite common. You can get an atv/snowmobile battery blanket, it's not much different than an electric heat mat used to start garden plants indoors. Most motorcycle and atv batteries range around 12Ah including AGM types. The difference with li-po or li-ion is the flow rate and the carrier voltage and yes some vehicles including snowmobile like Yamaha brand which use motorcycle engines btw need a sustained 13.7vDC to get all the injectors and electronics working so a standard 12.8vDC batery will often not do the job and the odd thing about all this is that you can get a standard 9v alkaline battery and hook it up to the snowmobile battery and the engine will start. It's truly an idiotic concept to not have any kind of capacitance in the vehicles ignition systems. There is an "ecoearth" brand li-po battery that does have and internal maintaining circuit you mentioned. it is however between 400 and 600$. I can confirm that it works but it's not a work machine battery. The best battery booster aka jump starter is the Schumacher (aka Seally) 1200s hybrid jump starter. It has capacitance, isolated li-ion battery with maintainer, and can pull a charge off another 12vDC power source into it's capacitors. You can also use it as a temporary car battery and it actually works at -40c. It's also close to 1000$.

They usually have protection circuits, but taking a lithium ion below it's minimum will brick it and ordinary lead acid won't take very kindly to it.

meme boi: What they don't tell you in the noco products manuals is that you need to prime the jump starters first like turning on your car's head lights for example then try to start. The Noco VA regulators are awful now a days.

Question/suggestion: Could you make a booster pack that runs off 1 or 2 18(+) volt power tool batteries? Modern power tool batteries, in particular high current/capacity ones from the likes of Milwaukee and DeWalt, pack some wicked punch. And the cells are top shelf. Do you think they could output enough current to crank a winter-cold engine? A lot of people have powertools and batteries in their car all the time. And the batteries are usually charged well because they're being used. The booster pack, if they have one, is often half drained. Could a booster pack basically be like those lipo ones, but without batteries inside - there could just be one or two sockets for 18 volt powertool batteries? Not only could it be very handy, but also potentially a lot cheaper as there's no actual battery or supercapacitor in it.

I have to say i am shocked & disappointed at the Noco, it is one of the smaller in the Noco range but being as it's a premium product i'm as i said before, disappointed. I won't be recommending the Noco ever again. I have a Suaoki G7 which has always worked well for me & came in a good sturdy case that looks very similar to the ones some of your test subjects came in.

What I would've liked to see (and would like to see if you end up doing a rematch) is a comparison to using another vehicle. I realize it wouldn't be usable in all the tests, but I'd like to see if these kinds of things are even necessary when there's a running vehicle nearby and the owner said they'd give you a boost

I own a GB40 and there is a trick to using them that you did not quite touch on. You need to cross the positive over the negative jumper lead three times ensuring that the negative lead ends up below the positive. Tape those leads together in that configuration and plug the unit in to charge. While the unit is charging; drive to your favorite auto parts store and buy a jump pack that doesn't suck!. This pile of garbage won even jump my side x side!

I did this to power my sound system my headlights dimmed when my sub hit and if i wanted to watch a movie on my onboard dvd player the stock battery died in about 3 hours but with all of them wired in i had it going for 13 hours with my lights on and still started no problem
