Matco Introduces Pocket-Sized Power Source And Jump Starter To Lineup

Press Release: Versapower is smallest and lightest portable power unit on the market  
STOW, Ohio (April 23, 2014) – Matco Tools is proud to announce the release of the smallest and lightest portable power unit on the market. Featuring 300 Cranking amps with 400 Peak amps of power, the Versapower (MINIJUMP) can be used to jumpstart most domestic and foreign vehicle make and models, including cars, light trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles. This versatile new release from Matco also conveniently serves as a portable power source for tablets, Apple® products, cell phones and any other USB powered devices.
        “This very unique tool supports many features that anyone can appreciate in the shop or at home,” said Michelle Specht, Senior Product Marketing Manager of Allied/Specialty Tools at Matco Tools. “What makes the Versapower so special is that it’s small enough to put in your pocket, smart enough to charge your tablet or cell phone and powerful enough to jump start your vehicle.”
        Despite weighing only 14 ounces, the Versapower features a 12,000 milliamp battery and 100 more cranking amps than similar products on the market, which are needed for tougher starting jobs. It also features a high visibility LED battery status bar so users know exactly how much power the device has remaining.
        Matco’s Versapower has the ability to jump an F-150 V-8 18 times on one charge, whereas similar products are only able to jump the same vehicle 13 times before needing to be recharged. This is possible because of the newest development in the Versapower’s Lithium Battery technology, which provides longer battery life and more power than any other similar product on the market.
       The Versapower comes complete with jumper cables, a universal USB charging cable, an AC/DC charger, an ultra-bright LED flashlight with 3 modes and a durable carrying case. The Versapower is now available exclusively from Matco Tools. To locate a distributor in your area or for more information on the product line, call 1-866-289-8665 or visit
