Lithium power packs to jump start a 1999 115HP 2 stroke Yamaha


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to add an extra level of redundancy to my dual battery system by purchasing one of those small Lithium power packs to be able to jump start my motor if necessary. Does anyone have an idea of the minimum capacity CCA rating for these units I would require to jump a 1999 115HP 2 stroke Yamaha?  Also, any recommendations on good quality brands would also be appreciated.

You don't need much power to start your 2 stroke. Actually she can be pull started if you have a a flywheel with a slot to fit the pull cord.

there are plenty cheapies around, I don't know how good they are but I know Noco are good.

The one bellow will start almost any car engine, even small diesels. That's what I will be buying if I was you, shop around probably get it for $150 or so.

Thanks for the info. yes I did see that brand and it seems good quality with a few extra features (USB, light, etc.). GOOLOO brand was another I was eyeing off. I also have a 100 Series 4.2 Diesel Landcruiser (with a 750CCA car battery) so it would be good to find something that would also kick that into life when needed.

Any thoughts on whether the Aussie iTech one's are any good?

Haha, shouldn't laugh, but things like that give you a giggle a few years later.

I bought one on epay for about $80 rated at 1000amp.  Never needed it myself but have helped others at ramp including a 115hp 2 stroke and a ford f100 with a big v8.  I was amazed it started these no probs.  Ron
