ThePortable Power 950isa power source forall12voltDCaccessories thatareequipped witha 12Vaccessory plug.TheDCaccessory outlet hasa 15-amp automatic overload protection circuitbreaker. Thebreaker wiltautomatically resetafteranoverload occurs. 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. .4. 12V DC Electrical Device Appliance Type Fluorescent Lights, Cellular Radios, Electrical Electric Phones Fans DVD Players, Spotlights Tools, Bilge Pumps Coolers Air Compressors, Chart Estimated Depth Finders, Camcorders, Run=Time Car Vacuums Power Estimated Time* 4 Watts 40 Hours 9 Watts 21 Hours 15 Watts 12 Hours 24 Watts 7 Hours 48 Watts 3 Hours 80 Watts 1.5 Hour *NOTE: Estimated run-times.

The 950 is equipped with a built in door, located on the back of the unit, to make replacing the internal battery easy and efficient. To order a replacement battery, call: 1-800-SEARS-64 9.1 Be sure that all switches are in the OFF position. 9.2 Remove clamps from storage pegs on the back of the 950. 9.3 Remove eight screws from the door. 9.4 Slide door out. .5. 9.5 Remove the negative (first) and positive nuts and bolts securing the cable to the battery. 9.6 Push cables to the side and carefully slide battery out of the 950. 9.7 Reverse steps for assembly. Make sure that the nuts and bolts securing the cables are tight. 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.
