I vividly remember the days when jump-starting a vehicle meant relying on the kindness of a stranger with jumper cables. Thankfully, products like the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter (model G21) have made this method a thing of the past. This innovative device offers a more convenient and independent solution for starting your vehicle.
How Does the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter Work?
The portable G21 Nova Power Jump Starter from Loftek operates by discharging its four internal 3.7V LiPo batteries at high levels of current. With an impressive cranking current of up to 1100A (2200A peak), this device provides a powerful burst of energy to your car battery for a short period. It is capable of jump-starting a wide range of vehicles, including cars, SUVs, and even trucks with petrol engines up to 8.0 liters and diesel engines up to 6.5 liters.
The process of jump-starting your vehicle with the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter is simple:
Press the yellow function button on the device and ensure that at least three blue LED lights are illuminated. This indicates that your Loftek G21 jumper has more than 50% of its charge remaining.
Attach the included jumper clips to the jump starter. The light on the device should start flashing red and green alternately, indicating that it’s in standby mode.
Connect the red clip to the positive (+) terminal and the black clip to the negative (–) terminal of your vehicle’s battery.
Pay attention to the lights on the jumper clip assembly. A solid green light means that the clamp is securely connected and the emergency starter is ready to go. If the clamp is not properly connected or any faults are detected, the indicator light will turn red.
Start your engine as you normally would. If it doesn’t start immediately, give it a few minutes and try again.
Once your vehicle is running, remove the clamps carefully.
More Features of the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter
The Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter is equipped with the latest QDSP 3.0 technology, enabling it to function in temperatures as low as -4℉. While I’ve never personally tested this feature since I reside in Florida, it’s reassuring to know that this device is built to perform in extreme conditions.
Loftek has prioritized safety with the G21 jumper, incorporating short circuit protection, overcurrent and overvoltage protection, as well as overload protection. These measures ensure that you can use the device without worrying about any accidental damage. Although we haven’t conducted destructive testing, we’ve found that when used as intended, the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter provides reliable protection.
Other Useful Features
In addition to its primary function as a jump starter, the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter offers several other convenient features. It has a blue USB output port that can charge phones and even laptops. The USB port operates at various voltage and amperage levels (5V/3A, 9V/2A, or 12V/1.5A) to accommodate different devices. Furthermore, there is an additional 5V 2.1A USB port for fast charging mobile phones. The device also features a USB-C port for input charging, which can also output power at 5V/3A.
To top it off, the Loftek Nova Power Jump Starter includes a built-in LED flashlight. Simply hold down the yellow multifunction button to activate the bright LED light. It even offers a strobe light and SOS function, triggered by pressing the button again after the flashlight is turned on.
Conclusion: A Reliable Solution for Dead Batteries
