It'll start the truck alone. I know, I was surprised too.

As far as the tongue box, I can't believe it weighs 46 pounds. I have one and I swear it didn't seem that heavy, but I'm sure the specs are close.

While out camping with that 110 amp/hour battery, take along a good Solar Panel to recharge it during the day....

Mine kicks out 10 amps if needed.

and when you don't need it, it folds up into a nice little Brief Case, self containted.

I have 12v Li-Po battery on my one motorcycle and it has 350 cranking amps! It is light weight and kicks butt!
