300 Amp jump starter Is it worth $30 ?

I found a new 300 amp jump starter from Peak but have not seen it myself, just in paper. So I don't have the details on keeping it charged up, like does it have a built in trickle charger.

What I would like your opinions on is 300 amps enough to not just start a bike that is too heavy to be bumped (Goldwing 1500) but start a avg V-6 in 10 degrees F or -15 C ? Assume the device is kept indoors when not in use.

So is 300 amps enough for 3 or 4 cranks or not?

Thanks for your opinions especially if anyone has used one of these.
