No suggestion on a power pack but just an observation on Amazon ratings.

Yes, the ratings on a particular product can vary all over the place.  There are always a full range from 1 to 5.  The first thing I do is check how many ratings there are overall.  If there is a very low number, I don't trust either a high or low overall rating.  Next, I check to see what percentage of "1" ratings there are.  If it is a high percentage, I move on.  Next, I check to see what the comments are for the low rating reports.  Sometimes people trash a product because it was damaged in shipping or is a slightly different color than anticipated.  Sometimes people seem to blame the product when they use it improperly.
Amazon has a very good return policy.  It is quick, easy and free.  However, be aware that this only lasts for 30 days and then you must rely on the manufacturer's warranty and some of those aren't worth the print.  Always check the product for damage and proper operation when you receive it even if you aren't going to use it right away.  Don't put it on a shelf for 6 months and then become angry at Amazon for not replacing it if it doesn't work properly.

Looking for some input on what is a good portable power pack for jump starting cars. I am tired of trips to save family members who don't want to wait for the AAA truck (after they have left their lights on at school and at the mall, and where ever), and thought this might be a good Christmas present. When I read customer reviews on Amazon I get reviews from 1 to 5 (doesn't work at all to works great) for the same product. Not looking for one that is simply a large battery to tote around, but something small with big power, if there is such a thing.
