dunno, i paid 9.99 for a simple jump start box from makro years ago, useless
for a diesel engine, but ok for a small petrol, inside is only a little 17
AH battery, that's pretty standard to all of them, just relies on the fact
that you can pull lots of power from a lead acid battery for a short time,

The exact same jump start thing i have is sold in machine mart for 35 quid,
it's deffo not worth that much,
i use it more as a portable power pack tho than jump starting, i.e. running
a 12 volt floodlight on a pole i have, testing 12 volt motors out etc.

There are better bargains. Around 20 will buy you the same with built
in compressor, light and battery meter. I paid 19.99 for mine as
described and it has a charge cut off, to prevent overcharging the
internal battery. Comes with mains charger and ciggy lighter charger.
Look on the market stalls and/or Aldi/Netto/lidl.
