The PowerSafe Jump Start System features computer-controlled jumper cables that are designed to prevent surges, short circuits and spark-induced explosions. The computer will not allow power to flow through the jumper cables unless they have been connected correctly. Indicators on the computer module show how to correct any connection error.
AAA Oregon/Idaho has outfitted its battery service fleet in Portland with the new system developed by Energy Safe Technologies of Great Neck, New York. The jumper cables are available in various lengths at prices starting under $400. For information, visit PowerSafeJumperCables.com.
