That little jump box is used for powering a tire truer. Not needed if you get power from your car battery OR if you use someone else's truer in their pit.
You'll also need a small plug-in charger for your NiMh receiver pack or a specific charger (and probably a power supply) for LiPo or LiFe packs. If your radio has rechargable batteries, you need a charger for that too.
So, plan on a power strip for sure. If your racing organization provides power to the pit area you might need an extension cord. I always bring a 100' cord reel with 3 outlets, just in case.
Welcome back and good luck!
