This is a repost of my comment on a repost of your post. 
I paid about twice as much for one of these a couple of years ago after Hurricane Sandy so I'd have something to charge phones, tablets, etc. Two things to know--it has to remain plugged in or it loses its charge. Seriously. You have to plug it in every month. Forever. Or it's ruined. So, you're making quite a commitment to something that ideally you shouldn't have to worry about until you need it. Second, and this is what really pissed me off--maybe it was dumb of me, but when it said "provide power to 12V DC accessories both at home or on the road.." I figured that it would be able to do so right out of the box.  I didn't think it would have a 12V socket you had to spend another $25 to buy an adapter for.

Good price, but most of the value in these things is in the battery and this one is only 12Ah. By comparison Harbor Freight comes with an 18Ah battery.

I have an older 1150 model and it has served me well for YEARS! I've never needed it myself, but it boosted a dead Escalade at a concert once, and friend's cars multiple times.
I have used it while car camping, to power lights and speakers at night.
Used it yesterday to inflate a kiddy pool for a friend.
And numerous other times I can't think of right now.

I have NOT charged it monthly, I charge it when I remember to. Probably every 3 - 6 months. I want to say on the older models it said charge every 3 months. I imagine they've had some complaints, so now it says monthly.

I just picked up another, for the other car. Hopefully it is just as good as the old model. One interesting point, the new one says the battery is replaceable. The old one states it is not. When it comes time, I will certainly open the case on the old one and replace the battery myself. I imagine it was a liability thing with the old one.....

So all that said, the 950 and 1150 models are on sale too. Clearanced. There are new model available in the store and online already.

Also - from my looking around it appears ALL of the DieHard chargers and boosters are actually made by Schumacher - who is a pretty big name in the battery accessory business.

Nice prices but the QA on these things seems terrible and multiple reviews note they won't jump a fully dead battery (super dumb!). 

I have lead ~7 year old lead acid packs that are still working (I know I am on borrowed time, looking to replace them).

I'm building a jump pack of my own using a good used 800cca battery, terminals, some old jumper cable ends and a couple 12v/usb outlets. Add a $15 charger and you'd have a powerhouse for under $100, could be darn near free depending on what you have laying around.
