The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Personal Power Supply is the world's smallest jump box. It will easily jump-start your vehicle several times on a single charge, and also power and recharge your portable electronic devices. The lithium battery maintains a charge for about a year and there are over-charge and over-discharge protections for long battery life. The Micro-Start shuts off automatically when not in use. The Micro-Start also features a LED flashlight with strobe and SOS functions. In addition to the port for the jumper cables, the Micro-Start XP-1 has three power output ports: a 19v for laptops, 12v standard, and 5v USB for USB devices. Numerous adapter plugs for many different kinds of electronic devices (including the Lightning Connector for the latest iPhones) are included, as are a 12v DC charging plug, 110v AC charging plug, and carry case to keep everything organized.

The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 has the same cranking amps, reserve, internal battery, and flashlight as the Micro-Start XP-1 and will jump-start your vehicle just as well and just as many times, but is optimized for powering and recharging only USB portable electronic devices. A single 5v USB output port connects to a cable with four of the most common USB plugs (including the Lightning Connector for the latest iPhones). Jumper cables, USB cables, 12v DC charging plug, and 110v AC charging plug are included. Carry case included.

Amazingly it also powers and charges laptops (not 16v Apple laptops), cell phones, iPhones, iPads, Tablets, Bluetooth devices, and more. Just charge it once and easily take back-up power wherever you go.

The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit bolts to your vehicle's battery and lets you transport your Micro-Start without the jumper cables. The Harness Kit also stays with the vehicle, so there is no chance that it could get lost or forgotten. Simply plug the blue EC5 connector into your Micro-Start XP-1 or XP-3 jump port whenever you want to jump-start your vehicle. Also included is a Battery Tender style connector that connects to most trickle chargers and battery tenders. If you don't drive your vehicle on a regular basis and use a trickle charger or Battery Tender to prevent the battery from going flat, the Micro-Start Harness Kit works as both a jumper lead and a trickle-charger lead. The ring terminals will fit up to 5/16" or M8 battery posts. 12" long. The XPHK is not compatible with the XP-10 because the jump-start connector is different on the XP-10.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply

Micro-Start is the world's smallest jump box. It is small enough to fit in your pocket or purse, but it will easily jump-start your vehicle's engine and do it multiple times on a single charge. This seems incredible and hard for your brain to accept, so be sure to prove it to yourself when you receive your Micro-Start.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply

John did just that when he got his own Micro-Start. He disconnected the battery from his Range Rover and hooked up the Micro-Start. John jump-started his Range Rover 10 different times.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Personal Power Supply

The only reason John stopped at 10 jumps was because he got tired of waiting for the jumper cables to cool between jumps. The Micro-Start's jumper cables get hot because of the high current flow through the cables during a jump-start.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply

Even after 10 jumps, John's Micro-Start XP-1 displayed three out of five bars, meaning it had about half a charge remaining for even more jumps if John wanted.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply

This is incredible performance for a unit that weighs less than a pound and fits in the palm of your hand.   Furthermore, the lithium battery can hold a charge for up to a year. If you like, you can charge the Micro-Start, leave it in your car, and pretty much forget about it until you need a jump. Or, you can carry the Micro-Start and use it frequently to charge your portable electronics. There is no single way to use the Micro-Start.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 Personal Power Supply

If all of this seems too good to be true, do some research. Ask around. Everyone else who has tested the Micro-Start or owns a Micro-Start has obtained the same results. Jump-starting a vehicle multiple times is child's play for the Micro-Start. Photo by Dirt Wheels Magazine.

Odyssey Batteries PC2150 Battery

No matter how good your battery is, you can run out of power some day. This is true even if you have dual batteries and a battery management system. We have seen these battery-management systems malfunction many times. Furthermore, many vehicles don't have the room for dual batteries. The Disco2 is an example. The Odyssey PC2150 shown above has about double the cranking amps and reserve of the factory Disco2 battery. It is pretty much the maximum amount of battery available for a Disco2. There is no room for a second battery. But with a Micro-Start in the glovebox, there is no need for a second battery. A Micro-Start (any model) is also much easier, lighter, and cheaper than a second battery with a battery management system or even just a second battery.

Mojave Road

What if your offroading is on a motorbike and you have no room for a second battery? The Micro-Start is small enough to fit into your luggage or in the dead space under your saddle. The Micro-Start will also charge your phone when you are away from a power plug for several days.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

The most frequently asked question about the Engel Freezer Fridge is whether it will drain a battery overnight. It won't. But some people like to camp for multiple days in one spot. In that case, the Engel might deplete the battery. Camp any which way you like and have a Micro-Start handy to jump-start the car if necessary. It's that easy. Whatever you do, don't go without a fridge. The fridge changes everything. Photo by Jack Quinlan.

Solar Security Blanket

Some people are all into the solar security blankets. Whenever they park their vehicles, they tuck in their trucks. It's pretty funny to watch. A Micro-Start is far smaller, cheaper, lighter, and more convenient than these security blankets. The Micro-Start is also more effective, because solar doesn't work at night when a good amount of power drain happens from lighting.

Hella Worklamps

Hella Worklamps drain a lot of power and can drain the battery if the worklamps are left on for long periods of time. However, cooking in the dark is no fun. With the Micro-Start in your glovebox or center console, run these worklamps as long as you want without hesitation or fear. If your battery is dead in the morning, just jump-start your truck with a Micro-Start. Having a Micro-Start with you will change the way you fourwheel.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10, XP-1, and XP-3 Personal Power Supplies

There are three different Micro-Starts available at this time that pertain to the offroader or camper. The XP-10 is considerably larger and heavier than the other models, but has much greater cranking power and reserve. The XP-1 and XP-3 are identical in cranking power and reserve, but the XP-1 will power and charge many more types of electronic devices than the the XP-3 (which is based around USB devices). All three have flashlights and may be charged on 110v AC or 12v DC. All three will easily jump-start standard automobiles or anything smaller (like motorcycles).

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

The XP-10 has the cranking power to jump-start diesel engines. The battery is flat on this LJ78 Land Cruiser because too many electronic devices were left running during the night.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

That's just not a problem when you have a Micro-Start with you. Just hook up the Micro-Start,

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

and start your engine as you usually would. Even diesel engines are not a problem when you have the XP-10.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10, XP-1, and XP-3 Personal Power Supplies

The XP-10 measures 9" x 3.5" x 1.3". The XP-1 measures 6" x 2.8" x 1". The XP-3 measures 5" x 2.8" x 1". The photo above also gives some scale to familiar objects.

Above are the respective weights of the XP-10, XP-1, and XP-3.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Personal Power Supply Power Cords

All three Micro-Starts come standard with 110v AC and 12v DC recharging cords for charging at home or in the car.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 and XP-3 Personal Power Supplies

The primary difference between the XP-1 and XP-3 is what portable electronic devices they will power and recharge. The XP-1 will power and charge a variety of different electronic devices while the XP-3 is limited to USB devices.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP1)

The XP-1 has a 19v laptop output, 5v USB output, 12v output, and the EC5 jumper cable output.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

The XP-3 has only the 5v USB output and the EC5 jumper cable output. That's it, and the long side of the XP-3 is clean.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

The XP-10 has a 19v laptop output, two 5v USB outputs, 12v output, and jumper cable output.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP1)

Because the XP-1 has such a wide variety of powering options, it comes standard with a wide variety of power plugs.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP1)

The black cable fits the 19v laptop output and will accept different tips to fit various laptop power plugs.

Charger Plugs

Try the XP-1 cord and tips on your existing equipment and you might be surprised just what the XP-1 will replace. What a mess.

Antigravity Batteries 4-Into-1 USB Cable (XP41USB)

In addition to the black cord and adapters, the XP-1 comes standard with the 4-Into-1 USB Cable, which will accept fit pretty much anything using the 5v USB standard.

Antigravity Batteries 4-Into-1 USB Cable (XP41USB)

The USB input plugs into the XP-1's USB output port.

Antigravity Batteries 4-Into-1 USB Cable (XP41USB)

The 4-Into-1's four different output plugs are Micro USB, Mini USB, Apple 30 Pin, and Apple Lightning Connector. Anything that fits these plugs may be powered or charged on the Micro-Start.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP1)

To keep all of these bits organized, the XP-1 comes with a carry case.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP1)

The XP-1's carry case features dual zippers and a lanyard strap.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

The XP-3 comes like this, with 110v and 12v chargers, jumper cables, USB cables, and compact carry case. The XP-3 has only two forms of outputs: (1) jumper cables with EC5 connector; and (2) USB. Therefore, the XP-3 is either for jump-starting your vehicle or charging your USB devices. If you require other PC laptop charging, get the XP-1. Remember that the XP-3 has the same cranking power and reserve as the XP-1. The primary difference between the two units is the type of outputs.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 Personal Power Supply (XP3) Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-3 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

Like the XP-1, the XP-3 comes with a carry case.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

The USB cable plugs into the XP-3's 5v USB output,

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

and your electronic devices recharge when plugged into the XP-3. If you are the type of person with iPhone, iPad, iEtc. and carry them with you wherever you go, then the XP-3 will be very suitable for you.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Personal Power Supply (XP3)

This includes the latest Apple products that use the Lightning Connector.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

The XP-10 does everything the XP-1 will do and has the same power connectors for laptop and USB. The XP-10 also has considerably more cranking power and reserve than the XP-1 and XP-3. The penalty with the XP-10 is size and weight.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10) Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10 Personal Power Supply (XP10)

The XP-10's carry case is basically a magnum version of the XP-1's carry case.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-10, XP-1, and XP-3 Personal Power Supplies

If you are are having trouble deciding among the XP-10, XP-1, and XP-3, try to think of the XP-3 as a jump-starter that will also power USB devices. The XP-1 has the same cranking power and reserve as the XP-3, but will also power laptops and other electronic devices in addition to USB items. The XP-10 is identical in concept to the XP-1 and will power the same devices as the XP-1 will, but the XP-10 is considerably more powerful and will jump-start diesel engines.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

If you want to carry around your Micro-Start without the jumper cables, Antigravity Batteries also makes the Micro-Start Harness Kit to hard-mount onto your battery's terminals.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

The Micro-Start Harness Kit is 12" in length. One end bolts to your battery terminals and the other end has the same blue EC5 connector that the Micro-Start XP-1 and XP-3 jumper cables have. (The XPHK is not compatible with the XP-10 because the jump-start connector is different on the XP-10.)

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

The blue EC5 connector plugs right into your Micro-Start XP-1 or XP-3.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

Just connect your Micro-Start XP-1 or XP-3 to the blue EC5 connector whenever you want to jump-start your vehicle. If you don't want to carry the jumper cables with you, this works out quite well. Remember, this configuration is for jump-starting your vehicle. This configuration is not for charging your Micro-Start. If you want to charge your Micro-Start, use the provided charging plugs and charge your Micro-Start through its charging input. Do not use the jump-starting output to charge the Micro-Start.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

The Micro-Start Harness Kit is for vehicle batteries with threaded post (rather than tapered lead) terminals.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit

The Micro-Start Harness Kit will fit threaded posts up to 5/16" and M8 in size.

Also included with the Micro-Start Harness Kit is a Battery Tender style connector that connects to most trickle chargers and battery tenders.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start Harness Kit With Battery Tender

If you don't drive your vehicle on a regular basis and use a trickle charger or Battery Tender to prevent the battery from going flat, the Micro-Start Harness Kit works as both a jumper lead and a trickle-charger lead.
