no shipping to israel?!
Any one know how many times it would charge an iPhone for long backpacking trips?

Around 6 full charge!

Do you get the usb-c type adapter ends for the cables in the market which would be compatible with this? My phone and laptop both have usb-c type charging ports and while my phone can survive on a usb cable the laptop needs higher input
I recently got a deal on a dbpower 600A from Amazon. 2 days later i had to jump start my car (winter). These compact jump starters are awesome. It is still on 100% charge after first jump.
I used an identical one to start a 1998 Ford V10 6.8l with a completely dead battery. it had held a charge from the year before when it was given as a present. The charge dropped from 100% to about 80% after two cranks. I screwed up the first time I turned the engine over.
So how long does this unit keep a useful charge before having to recharge it?
The included charging adaptor, Can I use it in country with 240v Power socket?
Should I go for this or the big car battery charger with jumping cables?
Even though it says 5L is there a possibility that it could jump a larger engine? Like a 5.7L V8?

There is probably a possibility (depending on how drained your battery is), but I wouldn't count on it as it is not guaranteed.
I bought a jump starter battery back 8 months ago, and it has been well worth the money. My coworker has used it on their car multiple times on a single charge; it is a 2.4L sedan. I paid $35 at the time with fast shipping - got it in two days ;) - but it only came with the jumper cable. As one person put it in a separate online review, "If this does the job once, it was well worth the money."

Personally, I would spend my $50 on one with a bigger battery capacity, packaged with a jumper cable and a cigarette lighter cable.* I am not sure if the cigarette lighter cable in this drop will work because it does not have the blue cable-end like the jumper cable has. And you will get it a heck of a lot sooner than this one.

*EDIT: Misinformed on the purpose of the cigarette lighter cable. My bad.

They do exist, but it's not providing hundreds of cold cranking amps like you're thinking. It's simply a battery back that you plug into the accessory port that back-charges the car's battery. It doesn't blow the fuse because it's charging so slowly. It's convenient in that you don't have to pop the hood and fumble with jumper cables, BUT you have to wait a long time for any sort of charge to build up.

Sure, then it's not a jump starter - it's just a car charger. Similar uses, but not the same.
On the contrary, I have one the same capacity as this and it's started a 2 litre diesel and a 2.3 litre Saab that was completely flat. One start only used 12% of its capacity. They hold a charge for months and are very light weight, so perfect to keep in a car if you doubt your cars battery or to help someone else.
