Micro Start XP-10 starts Diesel engines?
When jump starting a vehicle or motorcycle you should fallow a few simple steps. First of all, make sure your problem with starting the engine is actually a drained battery problem. The second thing is to carefully read users guide related to this product. Most accidents and unsuccessful attempts happen just because some people ignore safety precaution and don’t know how to jump-start a car. If you are not sure about the whole procedure to check out our step by step guide “How to Jump Start a Car”.
As manufacturer climes that Micro Start XP-10 can start Diesel engines, we did a test on a 6.0l Diesel engine. This device is the strongest one from Antigravity Batteries and it was kinda expected this powerful mini jump starter will start our drained 12V battery.
The procedure is quite simple. We recharged Micro Start XP-10 in order to receive full power. It took some time but it is better to keep it fully charged always; who knows when you will need it. Also, it is quite easy to do so as you have a mobile charger so you can plug it in the cigarette lighter place in your car. Anyway, we connected detachable mini clamps and pressed “BOOST” button on clamps! So simple it is! We waited for about 20 sec. until finally turned the car key. The engine started at once! No problem at all! Really impressive it jump-started powerful 6.0L Diesel engine especially because we used these massive jump starters for this purpose. However, not just it jumps started our car but had enough juice to jump-start two more cars, recharged my iPad and we were not even close to draining this pocket-size powerful device.
As we earlier mentioned this mini jump starter is a multi-function device. It means it can be used as a power bank to recharge most of your gadgets. 18000 milliamps of capacity make this portable power supply a must-have device when you go out for camping or any other place where you can’t recharge your electronics. Actually, it can recharge an iPhone up to seven times and also as it has 2 USB outputs it can charge 2 gadgets at the same time. If you use 2 Amp output you will be able to recharge your cell phone twice as faster than using 1 Amp output. For purposes of this review, we used it in our office and it did a great job by recharging our cell phones and Laptops.
We are sharing this video below as a short presentation of Micro Start XP-10. Also, you can see how it really works as jump starter.
With this Micro Start XP-10 mini jump starter, you don’t have to worry about getting burned as you accidentally touch clamps or if you connect them the wrong way. Reverse polarity technology prevents sparkling and makes this device completely safe to use even for those who are not so agile with this kind of staff. Also, a thing to notice is that you can leave this device on the charger and not worry about over-charging.

Other customers Micro Start XP-10 reviews
As a part of this review, we did research of the market in order to collect more useful information about this portable power supply. It is very difficult and expensive to cover every aspect of quality for this or any other product. What we did was to read other customer reviews and opinions in order to give you a clearer picture of Micro Start XP-10. Truth is that this mini jump starter has a very good reputation. We read lots of positive comments and reviews from customers who purchased and use this product either as a jump starter or a portable power bank. But there is always some information and advice worth of sharing. Some of them are related to the low quality of clamps. It is noticed that they use to overheat what causes the melting of plastic and damaging cables. To prevent this from happening we suggest you use them rationally, what basically means is not to push them hard. If your car doesn’t start from the first time don’t worry and try a few more times but be careful and check if it is overheating. If you notice it does let it cool down and try again. That appears to be the biggest problem with Micro Start XP-10 and we think it is really easy to prevent it from happening. As we already said most of the comments and reviews were positive like this one we wrote.
Here are some of customer opinions about this mini jump starter..
“Everyone should carry one of these in their vehicle. Well made and simple to operate. Used it half a dozen times to start club member vehicles on an overlanding trip. A great option to the maintenance and cost of a dual battery system. So much easier than wrestling with jumper cables. Lots of great kit included to support your mobile devices when “off the grid”.”
“This is an EXCELLENT product. I got it on a Tuesday my battery was dead Saturday and it jumped my SUV with no problem. I use it to charge my phone at work in my desk drawer and nobody even knows it’s there. Love it love it love it!!!”
After conducting thorough tests and reviewing the Micro Start XP-10 from Antigravity Batteries, we can confidently say that this mini jump starter is a must-have device for any household. Made in the USA and backed by a 3-year warranty, it comes in a perfectly organized case with a variety of detachable tips that can be used to recharge almost any electrical device.

However, this device is not only useful for jump-starting diesel engines, but also for recharging 5V devices such as cell phones, 19V devices such as laptops (except for 16V Apple Laptops), and 12V devices, although we were not able to test it on these.
