Before attempting to start vehicle, this unit must be removed from the
vehicle’s 12V socket. See “CHARGING A DEAD BATTERY” section
for details.
WAGAN 2450 comes fully charged. However, you should initially
charge the unit before use. See “CHARGING WAGAN 2450” section for
details.
The unit is designed to recharge 12V batteries with a low voltage between
10.4 and 10.5 volts. If vehicle battery is severely drained, call a service
center or tow truck.
CAR ALARMS: If you have a car alarm, put it into “valet mode” before
attempting to use. Many popular car alarm models cut off the power to
the vehicle’s electrical system. It will not work while this type of alarm is
engaged.
For optimum performance, store in temperatures between 32°F-110°F
(0°C-43°C). Temperatures below 45°F (7°C) and above 85°F (30°C) will
require at least an additional 10 minutes of recharging before starting
engine.
During operation, the unit may feel warm. 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.

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.
