INTRODUCTION
YOUR POWER PACK UNIT IS DESIGNED AS A COMPACT, DURABLE AND PORTABLE JUMP START SYSTEM FOR 12 VOLT DC VEHICLES
AND BOATS. THIS SELF-CONTAINED SYSTEM WILL START MOST VEHICLES AND BOATS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A HOST VEHICLE OR
120V AC POWER SUPPLY. THIS SYSTEM CAN ALSO BE USED AS A SAFE, PORTABLE SOURCE OF 12V DC ELECTRIC POWER IN REMOTE
LOCATIONS AND/OR IN EMERGENCIES.
THE POWER PACK UNIT HAS AN EASY-TO-READ, COLOR-CODED BATTERY METER THAT INDICATES CHARGE LEVEL. A 12V DC SOCKET
IS PROVIDED FOR USE WITH APPLIANCES THAT WOULD OPERATE FROM A VEHICLES CIGARETTE LIGHTER OR 12V DC SOCKET. THIS
ALLOWS MAXIMUM PORTABILITY AND UTILITY WHEN YOUR POWER PACK UNIT IS USED IN REMOTE LOCATIONS.
FOR MAXIMUM CONVENIENCE, YOUR POWER PACK UNIT CAN BE RECHARGED FROM A 120V AC POWER SOURCE. THE BUILT-IN 500 mA
RECHARGER/CONVERTER HAS AN AUTOMATIC CUT-OFF THAT PREVENTS OVER CHARGING THE BATTERY. A BLACK ROCKER SWITCH
OPERATES THE BUILT-IN LAMP. A RED ROCKER SWITCH SHOWS THE BATTERY CONDITION ON THE METER. A COVERED 12V DC
SOCKET IS PROVIDED, AS WELL AS A COVERED RECEPTACLE FOR A 120V AC POWER RECHARGING CORD. THE RED LIGHT EMITTING
DIODE (LED) ILLUMINATES WHEN THE SYSTEM IS RECHARGING.
NOTE: ON/OFF SWITCH ONLY CONTROLS POWER TO THE 2 BATTERY CLAMPS. WE SUGGEST YOU KEEP THIS SWITCH IN THE "OFF"
POSITION FOR ALL OPERATIONS OTHER THAN JUMP STARTING A CAR.
FIGURE 1.
WARNINGS
•
ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN WORKING ON OR AROUND LEAD-ACID BATTERIES.
IF SPLASHED WITH BATTERY ACID: IMMEDIATELY FLUSH AFFECTED AREA SUCH AS FACE AND PARTICULARLY THE EYES WITH
CLEAN WATER. CONTINUE FLUSHING FACE AND EYES UNTIL MEDICAL HELP ARRIVES.
•
LEAD-ACID BATTERIES GENERATE HYDROGEN GAS DURING NORMAL OPERATION. MORE GAS IS GENERATED WHEN THE BATTERY
IS CHARGING. HYDROGEN GAS IS:
1. EXPLOSIVE
2. POISONOUS TO BREATH
3. HIGHLY FLAMMABLE
•
TO AVOID POSSIBLE DAMAGE THAT MAY SHORTEN THE UNITS WORKING LIFE, PROTECT THIS UNIT FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT,
DIRECT HEAT, AND /OR MOISTURE.
•
THIS SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO BE USED ONLY ON VEHICLES OR BOATS WITH 12-VOLT ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS.
•
THIS SYSTEM IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE USED AS A REPLACEMENT FOR A VEHICLE BATTERY.
TO AVOID AN EXPLOSION AND/OR THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING SPLASHED WITH BATTERY ACID:
•
NEVER ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK CLAMPS TO TOUCH EACH OTHER OR FOR BOTH TO TOUCH THE SAME METAL OBJECT OR ANY
ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE MATERIAL FOR THAT MATTER.
•
ONLY ATTEMPT TO JUMP START A VEHICLE OR BOAT IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA.
•
ALWAYS CONNECT THE RED(+) CLAMP TO THE POSITIVE (+) BATTERY TERMINAL FIRST .
•
DO NOT CONNECT THE BLACK(-) CLAMP TO THE NEGATIVE (-) BATTERY TERMINAL.
•
CONNECT THE BLACK (-) CLAMP TO A NON-MOVING METAL PART ON THE ENGINE NOT TO THE NEGATIVE (-) BATTERY TERMINAL.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR NEW POWER PACK UNIT
RECHARGING
1. FOR MAXIMUM BATTERY LIFE, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOUR POWER PACK UNIT BE KEPT FULLY CHARGED AT ALL TIMES. IF THE BATTERY
IS ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN A DISCHARGED STATE, BATTERY LIFE WILL BE SHORTENED.
TABLE I SHOWS THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE FREQUENCY OF USE BETWEEN RECHARGING AND THE EXPECTED NUMBER OF
CHARGE/RECHARGE CYCLES.

2. THE TIME REQUIRED TO FULLY RECHARGE YOUR POWER BOOSTER AFTER JUMP-STARTING AN ENGINE IS A FUNCTION OF HOW MANY
JUMP-STARTS ARE PERFORMED BETWEEN RECHARGING SESSIONS. TABLE II SHOWS THE APPROXIMATE RECHARGING TIMES YOU CAN
EXPECT.

THE METER WILL SHOW THE BATTERY CHARGE.
120V AC CHARGING :
PLUG THE 120V AC POWER CORD INTO AN OUTLET AND INTO THE RECEPTACLE ON YOUR NEW POWER PACK UNIT. CHARGE THIS DEVICE
FOR AT LEAST 4 HOURS OR UNTIL THE METER SHOWS A FULL (14- TO 15-V DC) CHARGE WHEN THE RED ROCKER SWITCH IS DEPRESSED.
THE RECHARGING CONVERTER CIRCUIT IN YOUR POWER PACK UNIT HAS AN AUTOMATIC CUT-OFF CIRCUIT SO THE INTERNAL BATTERY
CANNOT BE OVERCHARGED. TO RECHARGE YOUR POWER PACK UNIT BATTERY FROM 120V AC FOLLOW THESE STEPS :
1. ON THE POWER PACK UNITS' RIGHT SIDE THERE ARE TWO PLUGS, ONE ROUND AND ONE RECTANGULAR PLUG. SEE FIGURE 2.
2 . PULL THE PLUG COVER FROM THE RECTANGULAR RECEPTACLE OUT, EXPOSING TWO (2) PRONGS OF A STANDARD 120V AC POWER
CORD. A RESTRAINT KEEPS THE PLUG COVER FROM GETTING LOST. THE PLUG IS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN
THE WEATHER-RESISTANT INTEGRITY OF YOUR POWER PACK UNIT.
3. ONE OF THE POWER CORDS FURNISHED WITH YOUR POWER BOOSTER HAS A STANDARD 120V AC PLUG
AT ONE END AND A RECTANGULAR TWO (2) PRONG RECEPTACLE AT THE OTHER END. PLUG THIS POWER
CORD INTO THE SOCKET ON THE SIDE OF THE UNIT AND THE OTHER END INTO YOUR 120V AC WALL OUTLET.
THE RED LED WILL ILLUMINATE TO DENOTE CHARGING IS IN PROGRESS.
4. PRESSING THE 'TEST' BUTTON WILL INDICATE THE LEVEL OF CHARGE. A BUILT-IN SAFETY DEVICE
PREVENTS OVERCHARGING.
5. CONTINUE TO CHARGE UNTIL THE CHARGING LIGHT GOES OUT, OR THE VOLTMETER REGISTERS 14V OR
MORE WHEN THE TEST BUTTON IS PRESSED.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT STOP CHARGING BEFORE THE METER REGISTERS 14V.
AT THIS POINT, ONCE THE
CHARGER IS DISCONNECTED, THE VOLTAGE WILL SLOWLY SETTLE BACK TO READ 100%. THIS IS QUITE
FIGURE 2 NORMAL AND INDICATES THAT THE BATTERY IS AT FULL CAPACITY.
NOTE: TO FULLY CHARGE A BATTERY COULD TAKE UP TO 72 HOURS, DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF
DISCHARGE. THE UNIT CAN REMAIN PLUGGED INTO THE POWER SOCKET INDEFINITELY AS THE INTERNAL PCB
HAS AN AUTOMATIC "FLOAT CHARGING CIRCUIT" WHICH WILL NOT ALLOW AN OVERCHARGE CONDITION OR
DAMAGE TO THE BATTERY.
12V DC CHARGING
YOUR NEW POWER PACK UNIT IS EQUIPPED WITH A RECEPTACLE THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO RE-CHARGE THIS SYSTEM FROM THE 12V DC
SOCKET IN YOUR VEHICLE OR BOAT.
NOTE :THIS RECHARGING METHOD WILL NOT RECHARGE THE SYSTEM TO THE SAME 14-TO 15V DC VOLTAGE LEVEL AS PLUGGING IT INTO
A 120V AC OUTLET WILL. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE THE 12V DC RECHARGING PROCEDURE ONLY WHEN IT IS NECESSARY, AS
CONTINUED USE OF THE 12V DC RECHARGING PROCEDURE MAY SHORTEN THE SYSTEM'S LIFE.
TO USE THE 12V DC RECHARGING SYSTEM :
1. INSERT THE POWER CORD WITH THE 12V DC PLUG INTO THE 12V DC RECEPTACLE ON YOUR VEHICLE OR BOAT.
2. INSERT THE PLUG AT THE OTHER END OF THIS POWER CORD INTO THE RECEPTACLE ON THE FRONT PANEL OF YOUR POWER BOOSTER.
OPERATION
TO USE YOUR POWER PACK UNIT AS A 12V DC POWER SOURCE:
1. LIFT UP THE COVER OF THE 12V DC RECEPTACLE (ROUND RECEPTACLE AS IN FIGURE 2).
2. INSERT THE 12V DC PLUG FROM THE APPLIANCE INTO THE 12V DC RECEPTACLE.
Note: ON/OFF SWITCH CAN BE LEFT IN THE “OFF” POSITION

FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, WHEN USING YOUR POWER PACK UNIT TO JUMP START A VEHICLE OR BOAT, PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW
THESE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
1. SWITCH THE ENGINE OF THE VEHICLE OR BOAT TO BE JUMP-STARTED TO “OFF”.
2. CONNECT THE RED (+) “ALLIGATOR” CLAMP TO THE RED (+) POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
3. CONNECT THE BLACK (-) “ALLIGATOR” CLAMP TO A NON-MOVING METAL PART OF THE ENGINE, NOT TO THE (-) NEGATIVE BATTERY
TERMINAL.
4. TURN POWER PACK UNIT SWITCH TO “ON”.
5. WAIT A MINUTE OR TWO TO LET THE VEHICLE BATTERY TO CHARGE
6. TRY TO START THE VEHICLE BUT DO NOT TRY FOR MORE THAN 5 TO 6 SECONDS.
7. IF THE VEHICLE OR BOAT ENGINE DOES NOT START, WAIT AT LEAST 3 MINUTES BEFORE TRYING AGAIN.
*UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK CLAMPS TO TOUCH EACH OTHER OR A COMMON CONDUCTOR*
ONCE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, FIRST DISCONNECT THE BLACK (-) CLAMP AND RETURN THIS CABLE TO ITS STORED POSITION ON THE
POWER PACK UNIT, THEN DISCONNECT THE RED (+) CLAMP AND RETURN THIS CABLE TO ITS STORED POSITION ON THE POWER PACK
UNIT. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, CONNECT YOUR POWER PACK UNIT SYSTEM TO 120-VAC AND RECHARGE.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
FIGURE 3. - REAR VIEW OF THE POWER PACK UNIT SHOWING THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT
1. UNSCREW AND REMOVE THE EIGHT (8) PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS THAT HOLD THE REAR COVER IN PLACE ON THE BACK OF YOUR POWER
PACK UNIT.
2. LIFT OFF THE COVER PLATE TO EXPOSE THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.
3. LIFT THE BATTERY OUT OF THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.
4. DETACH THE #4 JUMPER CABLES AND THE RED AND BLACK RECHARGING WIRES FROM THE BATTERY TERMINALS .
