With a lot of hard work and a Pruvan account comes a TON of photos and surveys organized in the Pruvan Downloader. What that also means is not a lot of space on your computer’s hard drive. While Pruvan takes great care to reduce the size of each photo to a mere 30kb per photo (which is TINY for a photo!) when you’re storing thousands of photos over many years, those tiny photos do add up. So the day when you receive this lovely message will be inevitable:

Too Bad They Can’t Jump Start Spring: Pruvan’s Favorite Portable Jumpers for Car Batteries

For many folks, winter just won’t end! Pruvan’s own Marketing Manager was almost stranded in Boston this weekend when another 3 inches of snow hit the ground.

Pruvan tested two different models this weekend with great results. We’re just a little sad that these handy devices can’t jump start spring, too.
