The former, obviously, and through personal experience, is much harder to use than the latter. However, the primary benefit of the manual jack is that it COULD be less prone to breaking since it is a simpler device. The electric trailer jack could fail electrically or mechanically. The electric trailer jack will also require installation or some know-how as far as wiring goes.

Jack Cover, (John Higson Cover, Jr.), American physicist and inventor (born April 6, 1920, New York, N.Y.—died Feb. 7, 2009, Mission Viejo, Calif.), spent most of his career in aerospace but became famous in the mid-1970s for inventing the TASER, a handheld weapon that fires darts attached to insulated wires to deliver debilitating electric shocks at ranges of up to several metres. Cover’s goal was to devise a nonlethal means of stopping violent acts, such as riots and hijackings. Though the TASER was initially classified as a firearm because the darts were propelled by gunpowder, in 1993 Cover used compressed nitrogen to activate the darts; the modification allowed the public to purchase his invention. The TASER name (a registered trademark) was a modified acronym from the title of one of Cover’s favourite childhood books: Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle.
