Customer Review Analysis

Although the GB150 is an opulent product, it seems that not all customers who have supported it were completely satisfied.

However, many who have bought the Noco GB150 accredited it as a very good product. Those who would not recommend buying the GB150 noted many flaws in the design.

One of the more common flaws, it appears, is that the unit stops charging due to eventual wear and tear.

This flaw occurred, at times, within the warranty time period. Despite being sent a replacement, customers experienced the same problem with the replacement products.

Other flaws that were noted is that it stops discharging according to advertised specification and did not jump-start automobiles the way it should.

It should be noted that many of these reports occurred in colder regions.

Therefore, some of the problems may have been because of operator errors. Those who did find it satisfying especially praised its impressive output in relation to its light and compact size.

 

Pros And Cons Of The Noco Genius Boost Pro GB150

Pros

  • Designed light-weighted and compact for easy traveling mobility
  • Features a powerful 4,000 amps rated jump-start output suitable for motors of 10-liters cc
  • Features the convenient ability to charge electronic smart devices on the go with USB or Micro-USB cords
  • Includes all-important safety features like reverse polarity protection and no-spark connector clamps
  • Has a built-in LED light to aid in dark or nighttime conditions with a rated 500 lumens radiation and SOS functions
  • Features a built-in voltmeter to measure the health of any battery you are intent on jump-starting
  • Built-in internal battery gauge indicator lights and the interface is very attractive

Cons

  • Received plenty of unsatisfied customer reports claiming that there are too many flaws and failures with the design
  • Is not suitable for the colder conditions where temperatures reach far below minus four degrees Fahrenheit.
 

Who Should Buy

Boat owners who suffer from regular dead batteries should feel free to invest in the GB150. It is a good option to get that dead battery going again.

Plus, keeping it on the boat when out on the water will allow you to keep your electronic devices charged.

It will also allow you to run onboard appliances and fishing gadgets. Any car owner could also keep it handy for emergencies when running into a discharged battery due to some kind of electrical fault.

Our Recommendation

Because of the many flaws experienced by unhappy customers, we would recommend keeping an eye out for something else.

However, if you happen to be able to buy a unit that is not defective, the high-power output would certainly make it a worthwhile investment.

Not to mention along, it has a manual override function that allows you to jump-start even the most drained batteries.

If you live in colder regions, such as Alaska or Canada, or own a boat you often trawl on colder waters, then this is not a suitable product for you.

The safest rated operating temperature is nothing below negative four degrees Fahrenheit.

If any of these problems do not deter you, then you are more than welcome to buy the Noco Genius Boost Pro GB150.

Folks will often find me tinkering away in my garage on one of them - or maybe all three! It is always good to keep your skills honed so you are prepared for any eventuality. Often times I'll take off on adventures that might take me through the mountains or across the country. The best part about driving is meeting new people along the way and getting to know different cultures and ways of life from state to state, country to country.
