I went with a Hella universal kit ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and added a Honda Horn audio adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl ) . Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella has some many of the car manufacture plugs ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ).

The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is the possibility of being positioned in the wrong side of the horn. Your car may not have enough wiring harness to connect the plug. This happened with my Honda Clarity as the cable did not reach the horn plug. It needed another 3 inches of original harness length.

Universal horn kits are more flexible as you can buy an adaptor cable specific for your Honda or other car manufacture. Typical adapter cables are about 3-4 inches in length. The universal horn kit I choose was the Hella Trumpet Hi / Low Horn 113dB – Universal Kit. They had Honda specific connectors but I got the universal fit.

I also ordered a Honda Civic horn adaptor( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl )with 2 prongs to match my Honda Clarity. Some other model Honda have single prong as they ground from the mounting bolt to the metal of the car.

The only issue of my Hella Trumpet horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and 1/4 inch terminals were larger than my 3rd party adapter. I had to make a F2 to F1 adaptor ( https://amzn.to/35TqYSV ) , by using a 16 AWG 1/4″ Female connector terminal from my terminal assortment kit ( https://amzn.to/3sCCewq ) and some electrical tape. I typically use Plastidip in a can ( https://amzn.to/39ImUpu ) to insulate my electrical terminals but the can dried out.

You will need a a flat head screwdriver for the plastic clips that cover the paneling, 12 MM socket for the mounting bolt, and a 10 mm socket wrench for adjusting the angle of the horn mount. After connecting the horn test it out prior to finishing up the cable management.

Enjoy your new louder horns!

Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and SEINECA Automotive ( https://amzn.to/35VKcaj ) sells car manufacture specific horns.

The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is that they are positioned in the wrong side of the horn, and your car may not have enough wiring harness to connect the plug. This happened with my Honda Clarity as the cable did not reach the horn plug. It needed another 3 inches of length. The SEINECA kit ( https://amzn.to/35VKcaj ) was also 125+ dB and was very large horns and did not fit the area of the Clarity.

You will need a a flat head screwdriver for the plastic clips that cover the paneling, 12 MM socket for the mounting bolt, and a 10 mm socket wrench for adjusting the angle of the horn mount.

To remove the Honda Clarity front cover you need to remove the 3 plastic clips, the pull the cover from the side edges straight up out of the fender clips, replace the original horns, disconnect the plugs , and replace with the new plugs and horns, then test it out. There should be no need for any other wiring. After installing and testing, replace all the clips and covers. Remember that the 4 clips have need to be repositioned on to the cover.
Enjoy your new louder horns!

Costco Type S 12v Jump Starter (8,000 mAh Power Bank – USB C) $49 UNBOXING

Costco has a new Type S 12v Jump Starter for $49 (on sale, normally $59). Its also a 8,000 mAh Power Bank with USB C and USB A connections for 2.4A charging. There are other 12v jump starters and larger power bank combos online: https://amzn.to/2JlQ44d . Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases. For other car accessories and gift ideas, visit SterlingW Amazon Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/sterlingw

I bought this Type S Jump Starter to replace my 2016 WinPlus Jumpstarter was starting to lose charge. I guess the lifespan for these are about 4 years for replacement. At $49 it was a good deal and my 2016 version saved me several times during various roadtrips and at work when a co-worker needed a jump.

The new features of this 2020 Type S 12 volt jump starter was the IP64 water resistance, the digital display instructions on the side of the device, and the USB C (input and output) which is my typical standard charging plug for most of my devices. It does come with a 12v USB car charger and a micro USB charge cable. The USB fast charging at 2.4a is a good feature. The primary use of this will still be as a car jumper, as travel a lot on the road during the weekend and for road trips.

Per the instructions, it needs to be over 50% charged in order to jump a car and it needs to be charged every 2-3 months to keep the battery life. So I the unit was made in June 2020 (100%) and now its October 2020 with 60% charge, so it basically lost 10% a month or perhaps it was only 80% charged after being built. Any ways, I normally charge every 1-2 month so this should last me another 4 years.
