Top 10 Best Electric Car Jacks

Oct 08, 2019



Admittedly, electric car jacks are a bit of a luxury item, but they definitely come in handy if you ever get stuck with a flat tire on the side of the road. Instead of using your factory scissor jack and manually cranking to lift your car, electric car jacks make the task much easier by having you simply push a button. Most electric car jacks are capable of getting your car off the ground in under two minutes, but more importantly, they don’t require a lot of manual labor to operate.

Before deciding on an electric car jack, you’ll want to see how much your vehicle weighs so you know what capacity you need. Most electric car jacks will support anywhere from 1 ton to 3 tons, so make sure you’re purchasing one that will support the weight of your vehicle. While you’re shopping around, you may notice that many electric car jacks have similar features and even look similar. This is likely due to the fact that many of them are manufactured overseas, and some of the online vendors you are seeing are possibly selling a similar product, if not the same product.

In this article, we’ll outline all the differences between those popular electric car jacks. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices based on your vehicle’s weight, you’ll want to check out any price differences between the products available, and which ones include more accessories. Some electric car jacks include a handy impact wrench, which makes your job of changing your flat tire even easier. Most will include a convenient carrying case, so you can keep the electric car jack safely stored in your trunk when it’s not in use.

Almost all electric car jacks can be powered by the 12v cigarette lighter in your vehicle, while others can also attach straight to your car’s battery with included clamps. This makes them an ideal solution when you need to get your car safely off the ground in a hurry.
