OT: Recommendations For Li-Ion Automotive Jump Starter

edited January 6 in EggHead Forum
Negative 2 degrees here earlier this morning and Angie had a Dr. appointment to get to.  Her Santa Fe would not start, low battery and click-click-click from the starter.  My Impala was good to go, but boxed in by the SF.  Vehicles were parked in such a way that jumper cables were too short to be of use.  Using an extension cord and battery charger/booster I got her on her way.  The whole time I'm thinking how much faster/easier this might be with a Li-Ion battery pack.
For those that have experience with these I'd appreciate your views about them.  Specific items of interest:
- Real world experience, how capable have you found them to be?  Particularly in temps below 20 F.
- Minimum peak amps and Ah rating to consider.  I'd be using on vehicles up to 6.2L engine size.
- Any brands to stay away from?
- Not interested in USB as only means to recharge, would like to also have ability to charge from cigarette lighter port.  AC charging would be even better.
