HOW THE POWER TO GO® WORKS
The POWER TO GO® is a power inverter with built-in batteries. A power inverter
is an electronic device that converts low voltage DC (direct current) electricity
from a battery to 115 volt AC (alternating current) household power. In
designing this inverter, Black & Decker® has incorporated design techniques
previously employed in computer power supplies. The result of these design
innovations is a smaller, lighter and easier-to-use power inverter.
The POWER TO GO® Inverter converts power in two stages. The first stage is a
DC-to-DC conversion process that raises the low voltage DC at the inverter input
to 145 volts DC. The second stage is a MOSFET bridge stage that converts the
high voltage DC into 115 volts, 60 Hz AC.
The DC-to-DC converter stage uses creative, high frequency, zero voltage
switching power conversion techniques that replace the bulky transformers
found in less technologically advanced models. The inverter stage uses
advanced power MOSFET transistors in a full bridge configuration.
POWER TO GO® Inverter Output Waveform
The AC output waveform of this inverter is known as a modified sine wave. It is
a stepped waveform that has characteristics similar to the sine wave shape of
utility power. This type of waveform is suitable for most AC loads, including
linear and switching power supplies used in electronic equipment, transformers,
and small motors.
The modified sine wave produced by this inverter has an RMS (root mean square)
voltage of 115 volts. Most AC voltmeters (both digital and analog) are sensitive to
the average value of the waveform rather than the RMS value. They are calibrated
for RMS voltage under the assumption that the waveform measured will be a pure
sine wave. These meters will not correctly read the RMS voltage of a modified sine
wave. Non-TRUE RMS meters will read about 20 to 30 volts low when measuring
the output of this inverter. For accurate measurement of the output voltage of this
unit, use a TRUE RMS reading voltmeter such as a Fluke 87, Fluke 8080A,
Beckman 4410 or Triplett 4200.
115 Volt AC Output
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PROPERTY DAMAGE:
• Certain rechargeable devices are designed to be charged by plugging them directly
into an AC receptacle. These devices may damage the inverter or the charging circuit.
• When using a rechargeable device, monitor its temperature for the initial ten
minutes of use to determine if it produces excessive heat. If excessive heat is
produced, this indicates the device should not be used with this inverter.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Charging the POWER TO GO®
Attach the barrel tip of the AC Charging Adapter to the AC Charging Port of the
POWER TO GO® and plug the standard two-prong plug into an appropriate,
functioning 120 volt AC outlet. The red Battery Status LED Indicator will flash,
indicating a proper connection has been made and the unit is charging. The green
Battery Status LED Indicators will gradually light as the charge level rises. The
POWER TO GO® must be charged for approximately 17-20 hours prior to first use.
All Battery Status LED indicators will be lit solid (the red indicator will stop flashing)
when the unit is fully charged.
Operating the POWER TO GO®
Once fully charged (see “Charging the POWER TO GO®” in the previous section),
turn on the CPI20XB by pressing the ON/OFF Pushbutton. Plug a USB and/or AC
powered device into the unit.
The standard two-prong 115 Volt AC and USB Outlets allow the user to operate multiple
devices simultaneously. Simply plug the equipment into the unit and operate normally.
Note: Ensure wattage of all equipment simultaneously plugged into the
CPI20XB does not exceed 16 watts continuous.
120 Volt AC Outlet
1. Make sure the CPI20XB is properly charged. Turn the unit to the ON position. All
Status LED Indicators will be lit solid, indicating proper operation of the unit and
battery capacity.
2. Plug the (110/120 volt AC) appliance into the Inverter’s two-prong AC outlet
and operate normally.
Note: The CPI20XB will not operate appliances and equipment that generate
heat, such as hair dryers, electric blankets, microwave ovens and toasters.
USB Power Port
1. Make sure the CPI20XB is properly charged. Turn the unit to the ON position. All
Status LED Indicators will be lit solid, indicating proper operation of the unit and
battery capacity.
2. Plug the USB-powered device into the inverter’s USB Power Port and operate normally.
Note: The POWER TO GO’s USB Power Port does not support data communication. It only provides 5 volts/350mA DC power to an external USB-powered
device.
Rated Versus Actual Current Draw of Equipment
Most electrical tools, appliances, electronic devices and audio/visual equipment
have labels that indicate the power consumption in amps or watts. Be sure that
the power consumption of the item to be operated is below 16 watts. If the
7
CPI20XB_ManualEN_041307.qxp
6/25/07
2:07 PM
Page 8
power consumption is rated in amps AC, simply multiply by the AC volts (115)
to determine the wattage.
Resistive loads are the easiest for the inverter to run; however, it will not run larger
resistive loads (such as electric stoves and heaters), which require far more
wattage than the inverter can deliver. Inductive loads (such as TVs and stereos)
require more current to operate than do resistive loads of the same wattage rating.
For safety reasons, the unit will simply shut down if it is overloaded. To restart
the unit, simply remove the load. Then plug devices back into the inverter
making certain that the total load does not exceed 16 watts continuous.
Protective Features
The inverter monitors the following conditions:
Low Battery Voltage – this condition is not harmful to the inverter but could
damage the powered device, so the inverter automatically shuts down when the
internal battery pack becomes low of charge. This will be indicated by a flashing
red LED in the front panel before automatic shutdown of inverter.
Thermal Shutdown Protection – the unit will automatically shut down when the
unit becomes overheated. Manual reset will be necessary after the unit cools
down to restart unit.
Overload/Short Circuit Protection – the inverter will automatically shut down
when a short circuit occurs. Manual reset will be necessary to restart unit.
Note: The Bi-color Inverter Status LED Indicator will light red to indicate
Fault condition before automatic shutdown occurs.
OPERATING TIPS
The POWER TO GO® should only be operated in locations that are:
DRY – Do not allow water or other liquids to come into contact with the inverter.
COOL – Surrounding air temperature should be between –20°C and 40°C —
ideally between 15°C and 25°C (60 – 80°F). Keep the inverter away from direct
sunlight, when possible.
VENTILATED – Keep the area surrounding the inverter clear to ensure free air
circulation around the unit. Do not place items on or over the inverter during
operation. The unit will shut down if the internal temperature gets too hot. The
inverter will auto-reset after it cools down. Do not use inverter in a pocket.
SAFE – Do not use the inverter near flammable materials or in any locations that
may accumulate flammable fumes or gases. This is an electrical appliance that
can briefly spark when electrical connections are made or broken.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Common Audio/Visual Problems
Problem: Buzzing Sound In Audio Systems
Some inexpensive stereo systems make a buzzing sound when operated from
the inverter, because the power supply in the electronic device does not properly
filter the modified sine wave produced by the inverter. The only solution to this
problem is to use a sound system that has a higher quality power supply.
Fault LED Lights
When the Power/Fault LED changes from green (indicating the unit is powered and
working properly) to red, a fault condition is present and the unit will automatically
shut down. See “Protective Features” on page 10 and “Common Power Output
Problems” in the section that follows.
