The company was formed in 1994, initially operating from a base in Horsforth, West Yorkshire. We began by importing jump starters / portable power packs, as the first company in the UK to offer them to the mechanic sector. Success came quickly and larger premises were soon needed.

By mid 1995, we moved to our current headquarters near Knaresborough in North Yorkshire. By the end of that year we had secured a sales relationship with Snap-on Tools. From the outset, Portable Power Limited concentrated on what customers wanted by speaking to the tool distributors and end-users, then we set about designing and manufacturing our own jump starter. In 1999 we launched our compact, reliable, rugged, robust power pack, the Portable Power 1000, which was sold exclusively through Snap-on UK initially, then worldwide through Snap-on USA for almost 20 years.

Now Portable Power markets its own-branded power packs, with the latest version, the 1800RC (Rapid Charge), being launched in early 2020. All of our jump starters have detachable leads for secure storage. They are available in a choice of lengths and with a choice of clamp, which makes this pack truly versatile. They come supplied with a fully automatic 3-stage 5A Rapid Charger, which gets the pack up and running again very quickly.

The jump starters from Portable Power Limited are a premium product for professionals in a range of industries. These packs are hand-built and 100% of them are tested for every function before being packed and despatched, thus ensuring their quality, strength and performance. We do not compromise on quality. 

Because we are so confident in our products, they are covered by a fully comprehensive 24 month warranty, which even includes the battery. We collect and return packs direct to the end-user, so that they're never troubled with any problems whether the unit is in or out of warranty.

Our customers are now in a range of industries, including automotive, agricultural, marine and other leisure pursuits.
