My impression

I have owned 2 of these units over the years and the batteries go dead after about 2 years.

Pros: I liked the many uses

Cons: Very poor quality, will not last long! I would not recommend buying this item.

Good power till the Cable pulls out

Good till the positive cable pulled out of the connector.

Pros: good starting power. Good air pressure.

Cons: can not find replacement parts. useless without the cables to jump start a car. All I have now is a very heavy expensive mediocre air pump.

Truly Awesome Product about as good as it gets

I bought this unit in 2006 while living in Seattle and I've used it constantly. I've noticed people complaining about the air nozzle connection and I agree that it is a little delicate but I always use it carefully and never had a problem with it. My truck battery went dead one time about 9 miles out of town and I hooked this to my battery with the hood close over the top and with the jump starter switch on (which your not suppose to do) and it got me home with no damage to the unit. It is October 6th 2013 and the AC charger has stopped working but it will still charge through the cigarette adapter and everything else still works so I will buy another one if their still available. This thing has lasted 7 years with normal use.I always kept the battery charged up immediately after use. The air gauge is accurate. The 400 watt inverter does what it's suppose to do. I've tried a different brand that is similar to this one but nowhere near as good in a number of ways.

Pros: I like the fact that it serve's multiple purposes. We've always found use for the 400 watt inverter in our RV. I like the fact that it's always available with plenty of power when needed thanks to the lithium battery.

Cons: I truly couldn't find any cons except for the air hose connection which common sense should tell you to be careful with. Mine lasted 7 years and is still in tact.

The Electromate 400: Beneficiary or Buffoonery!

It helped power up my low-wattage items for a needed use. The key is, do NOT try to connect your item up to a 500W electric bulb . . . use the CDLs or energy saver lightbulbs. 23W on a CDL/energy saver can act as bright as a 100W bulb across the board. Recognize that the power pack must be charged for up to practically TWO days for best results. Else, watch as those 400W dwindle down to 8W after 45 minutes.

Pros: Highly convenient, especially if your vehicle breaks down. Used when power is needed and an electrical outlet/gas generator is missing in action.

Cons: After 30 minutes, without constantly cutting the power on or off, watch as it becomes a dead battery, even if it's a lithium-ion one.
