It's easy to take for granted your car's ability to start up when you turn the key — until one day, it doesn't. Then, you're left with two options: Try to get a friend to come over and give you a jump, or call a mechanic for help. Both can cost you time and money, two things no one has available these days.
Turns out, there's another solution. You can invest in a portable car jump starter to keep around for the just-in-case. And, just for today, Amazon has slashed prices on top-rated Nexpow portable jump starters. Right now, you can save up to 45 percent off these life-savers. And, it's worth pointing out, they make excellent Father's Day gifts. Check these out.
