Discontinue use if it becomes too hot. Do not attempt to reverse polarity. 25A fuses are used in a protection system which regulates the discharge and recharge of this unit.

By Wagan Tech USING AS A DC 12V POWER SOURCE • • WARRANTY: The products are designed with quality in mind. This product is warranted against defects in material and workmanship for one year from date of purchase. This warranty does not apply to defects or damage caused by misuse, alteration, or normal wear and tear, and is limited only to replacement of this tool. • CHARGING AN EMPTY BATTERY • Note: Before attempting to start vehicle, this unit must be removed from the vehicle’s 12V socket. • • • • • • • • 3 Turn off all lights and all other accessories (radio, etc) in the vehicle. Tip: keep one small vehicle light or dial turned on to aid in determining if the battery is charging. Make sure the vehicle’s 12V Socket is clean and free of debris. Put the end of the Male-to-Male 12V Car Power Card with no LED light into Wagan 2450 12V socket. Put the lighted end of the Male-to-Male Car Power Cord into the vehicle’s 12V socket Push the Master Switch to the OUTPUT position. The Indicator Light on the 12V connector will illuminate, and the light or dial left on in the vehicle should brighten. If the light or dial does not brighten, turn the ignition key ONLY as far as the accessory position (see vehicle owner’s manual.) In some vehicles, this is necessary for the 12V socket to operate. If the light or dial still does not brighten, turn off the light or dial, and allow this unit to remain on the 12V socket for at least 35 minutes. Remove it from the 12V and attempt to start the vehicle. If the vehicle does not start, DO NOT attempt to start the engine more that twice. Call a service center or tow truck. • Wagan 2450’s 12V DC Power Socket mimics the 12V socket of a vehicle. Any accessory you would normally plug into your vehicle’s 12V socket (cell phone, camcorder, flashlight, radio, etc.) can be powered from Wagan 2450’s 12V socket, using Wagan 2450’s built-in battery as the power source. This unit’s 12V DC socket is center pin positive (+). Most 12V DC accessories come with this configuration, but not all. Before connecting any accessory to Wagan 2450 12V socket, check the accessory owner’s manual for the polarity of the accessory. If the accessory is center pin positive, simply plug it into the 12V socket push the master switch to the OUTPUT position and run normally. For the DC accessories that ate NOT center pin positive, you must use a DC to DC adapter (not included.) RECHARGING RECHARGING FROM A 12V DC SOURCE (Car, Truck, Boat, 12V DC charger) Simply leave Wagan 2450 plugged into a 12V DC power source for 8-10 hours. As with any 12V Lead Acid Battery (car batteries), charging the unit periodically is permitted as Lead Acid Batteries do not have memory. RECHARGING FROM AC POWER SOURCE An AC Power Adapter is included for recharging from a standard power outlet. Simply leave this unit plugged into a power outlet for 25-27 hours to fully charge. Do not leave this unit plugged into the 12V socket when the vehicle is not running as it may drain power from the car battery. When charging in a vehicle, leave the engine running or charge while driving. © 2007 Wagan Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
