Vanair adds connector kits for jump packs

March 5, 2024
The new kits feature various adapters for trucks, buses, and more, specifically for the company's Start•All Jump•Pack.

NEW ORLEANS—Whether that dead battery is in a Class 8 truck, off-highway yellow iron, transit bus, or military rolling stock, Vanair now has versatile adapter kits for its dual voltage Start•All Jump•Pack12/24V lithium-ion jump-starter by Goodall. The kits are designed for to expand the capabilities of the jump pack, introduced last fall, as Jeff Steer, director of sales at Vanair, explained during a press conference at the American Trucking Associations Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2024 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition here.

“It's probably the most powerful, safest, most reliable jump pack on the marketplace in its class and its price range,” Steer said. “The kits’ components are easy to install on our Start•All Jump•Packs existing cables and significantly broaden the scope, scale and utility of these lightweight and portable jump pack solutions.”

Each kit comes complete with all the necessary components and easy instructions to quickly and flawlessly modify any Start•All Jump•Pack, enabling it to serve military, construction, mining and agricultural equipment, transit buses, and everything from 6-liter gas and 4-liter diesel engines to 16-liter diesels and vocational vehicles of all kinds.

The Start•All Jump•Pack 12/24V offers up to 10,000/5000 amps, 12/24-volts and 166,500 joules 5s of starting power, according to Vanair. Rugged and compact, these handheld devices are built to fit in tight spaces, allowing them to get between parked vehicles and go virtually anywhere a jump start is needed. Vanair’s three new adapter kits now make its Start•AllJump•Pack an all-purpose jump-starting tool, particularly for fleets with a mix of both specialized and traditional vehicles.

The NATO, Whitaker and Anderson adapter kits will be sold separately, and each comes with a corresponding connector and requisite components and cabling. The kits include simple instructions on how to install new male and female Lenco connectors on both the Start•All Jump•Pack’s existing cables and its existing alligator connectors. Once complete, users can easily transition from specialized NATO, Whitaker or Anderson charging capabilities, back to traditional alligator clamps in seconds, by simply unplugging one set and plugging in the other.

“Vanair’s Start•All Jump•Pack 12/24V helps fleets of all kinds do away with cumbersome AGM and lead acid battery jump starters that weigh hundreds of pounds and only have connectors for one type of vehicle,” said Steer. “Our Start•AllJump•Pack is a compact, lightweight unit, weighing only 18.5 lbs. and now offers a 12V and 24V starting solution for a vast array of vehicles—all in a single unit that can be hand carried anywhere.”

The Start•All Jump•Pack 12/24V also features Goodall Protect•All Safety Technology, making it easy to use on any vehicle and “practically impossible” for even novice technicians to reverse the polarity or apply the wrong voltage when attempting a jump start, the company added. Protect•All Safety Technology includes built-in protection for reverse polarity; low voltage; short circuit; overheat; over-discharge, over-voltage; and open clamps.

The jump pack can be fully charged in about eight hours and has the charging power to jump up to 10 Class 8 trucks, depending on condition, Steer added.

“With the Start•All Jump•Pack 12/24V, jump-starting has never been more convenient,” said Steer, “and with our three new multi-vehicle adapter kits, it’s never been more accessible to fleets of all types.”

The jump pack and connector kits are available exclusively through Vanair distributors.
