Portable Lithium Power Pack for Blue Ox Patriot

I usually tow a Jeep Wrangler and the Blue Ox Patriot is plugged into an always on 12v outlet. The Jeep has a dual purpose AGM and it holds up on 10-12 hour days with no problems. Recently got a used Fiat 500 with manual transmission to tow but the 12v outlet is not powered unless key is on. I know that I could wire a new 12v outlet or rewire the existing to a separate fuse, but wanted to try something different. Easy fix, a portable lithium power pack made by a company named Jackery. Plenty of power for the brake system for at least 8 hours.

It's a great idea if you had no other power source but seems counter-intuitive based on you saying that you could re-wire the existing outlet. It's just one more thing to carry and along with that, you need to re-charge the battery pack.

I like simple and re-wiring the existing outlet is what I'd do. (but, I'm not you)
