6.1
To Operate
a 12V DC Device:
• Open the protective cover of the DC power outlet on the front panel of the
Portable Power 950.
• Plug the 12V DC device into the DC power outlet, and turn the 12V DC
device "ON" (if required).
If the 12V DC device draws more than 15A, the internal circuit breaker of
the Portable Power 950 wilt momentarily disconnect power to the device.
If this occurs, unplug the device and the circuit breaker will automatically
reset after several seconds.
• The DC power outlet is internally wired directly to the internal battery.
Extended operation of a 12V DC device may result in excessive battery
drain. Recharge immediately after unplugging the device.

IMPORTANT:
CHARGE IMMEDIATELY AFTER PURCHASE
KEEP FULLY CHARGED.
Charge the 950 internal battery immediately upon purchase, every 30
days and after every use.
All batteries are affected by temperature. The ideal storage temperature is
between 40 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The internal battery will gradually
self-discharge (lose power) over time, and more quickly in warm environments. Leaving the battery in a discharged state may result in permanent
battery damage. To ensure satisfactory performance and avoid permanent
damage, charge the internal battery every month.
When the JUMP START ON/OFF switch is ON, the clamps are live and
will produce arcing or sparking if they come in contact with each other. To
prevent accidental arcing, always keep the clamps on the storage holders
and the JUMP START ON/OFF switch in the OFF position when not using
it to jump start a vehicle.
10.1
Replacing
the built-in
light
To replace the built-in light bulb:
1. Turn the light off.
2. Insert a standard (flat-blade) screwdriver into one of the two slots along
the bottom of the plastic tens and GENTLY pop the tens out. Repeat for
the other side.
3. Insert a replacement bulb of the same type and rating, and twist clockwise one quarter-turn to screw in the new bulb.
4. Replace the tens cover.
5. Test the light by switching the light on and off.
