Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Best price: £49.50

A super cool design, but the results were a little disappointing. The NOCO Genius Boost needs charging prior to use, and while the dust covers and extra ports were practical, there was only a 12V charger, with a separate mini USB lead to charge from a computer or USB port. You’ll get fewer jump starts than with rivals before the battery needs reviving – and recharging can take up to 12 hours – plus there’s no carry case, despite the compact box. Even so, it had the best-quality clamps on test and represents reasonable value.
