We’re no strangers to portable car jump starter/USB battery pack combos around these parts, but the Jackery Spark may be one of the best deals yet.

On an earnings yesterday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk finally responded to “some fairly crazy” Model S Autopilot videos that show reckless idiots pushing the feature beyond where it’s supposed to go. He isn’t pleased.
