    I carry one of these. Too many airports dont have A&Ps. So it is more like insurance and I can offer it to another pilot in a trouble. This will give you about 30 seconds of cranking spread out over 4 tries. It is compact and light. Comes with a fireproof bag to store it in.

    I had one of those in the Tiger, used it to drive my ADSb in. Never tried it for starting, have you? If it works they are alot more convienent than the big one I posted.

    Yes. Ran the battery down after flooding the engine(new to the plane and poor technique). Let it set for 20 minutes then put this on it and it allowed it to spin fast enough to start it. I was skeptical that it would work but it did. It kicks off after about 15 seconds of cranking and you have to reset it. A safety feature I guess. It is worth it. If I thought I would need it again before getting home, I can recharge it enroute, but I would rather not.
