    I keep one of these mini portable ones in my car all the time.

    It also acts to power my mini air compressor in case I have a flat.

    Have also saved a couple of stranded people from time to time

    I got mine from Aussie Disposals which is like a camping store. You should be able to get them from most outdoors places

    Those jumperpacks are also a great idea

    I keep some tools, 2 spare tyres and a 2ton trolley jack in my van, but that's just because i can
    Just get a basic tool kit with a torch, oil and coolant and a jack. I'm thinking of getting a cheap set from supercheap, dont like keeping all my expensive tools in the car.
