GET STARTED
Charge the Rescue Booster Pack before use. It is best to charge the
Booster Pack until the full charge light 7 on the control panel turns on.
Please read all instructions before use.
To ensure maximum battery life, charge at least every 30 days, and
after each use. Extreme fluctuations of either hot or cold outside
temperatures may require re-charging more often.
All models feature an Audible Safety Alarm. When the unit is on,
you will hear an intermittent beep, signaling that there is power to
the booster clamps. If the audible signal becomes a louder, steadier
signal (indicating a polarity problem), disconnect the booster clamps
from the battery immediately. Reverse the clamps and the audible
signal should return to a beep.

INSTRUCTIONS
After approximately 10 seconds of continuous cranking of your motor/ignition, stop and wait for 1 minute.
This prevents any damage that could occur to your Booster Pack or vehicle battery due to overheating.
You can turn your Booster Pack back on in approximately 1 minute after this cooling off period.
You can then resume attempts to start your vehicle.
The Rescue Booster Pack has a powerful compact sealed lead acid battery. When it is fully charged,
it has the ability to start multiple vehicles with a 3 to 5 minute wait between each use. Extreme hot
or cold temperatures will vary the performance. The unit will operate, however, the power output will
be lessened.
WARNING: Failure to follow the instructions below may result in personal injury, damage to your vehicle
and the possibility of an explosion. Read the entire Owner’s Manual before use. Always wear safety
glasses during use. Use only in well ventilated areas. Indoor use is not recommended.

9. Start your vehicle.
10. After starting vehicle, turn Booster Pack ON/OFF switch to OFF position.
11. Disconnect BLACK negative (-) clamp first, then disconnect the RED positive (+) clamp.
12. Always wrap Jumper Cables securely into place after use.
13. After use, recharge your Booster Pack.
14. Frequently check charge level of battery by pushing the red
Battery Level Test Button 6 on control panel.
IF BATTERY LEVEL IS ALLOWED TO DROP BELOW LOW LEVEL, PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE
BATTERY WILL OCCUR AND YOUR RESCUE BOOSTER PACK WILL NOT OPERATE EFFECTIVELY.
Rescue models 1000, 1800 and 3000 are equipped with clamp lights. When required, turn these
lights on via the Clamp Lights ON/OFF switch.
Turn switch OFF when not in use. Do not store the Booster Pack in your vehicle during extreme
periods of hot or cold temperatures; this may diminish the ability of the unit to operate properly.
For optimum performance always store upright at room temperature and recharge every 30 days
and after each use.

RECHARGING
Recharge every 30 days and after each use. Failure to do so will result in possible damage to the internal
battery and result in poor performance or failure to work at all.
1. Plug the AC Charging Cord supplied into the 120 Volt-in connection on the back
of the Booster Pack.
2. Plug the other end of the cord into a 110/120-volt AC outlet.
3. The Yellow charging LED light will glow and will remain ON during the charging
process. When the internal battery is completely full the Green FULL CHARGE
LED light on the control panel will turn on automatically. This can take up to 72
hours depending on the condition of your internal battery. You can unplug your AC
Charging Cord at this time OR leave it plugged in indefinitely as the
CUL™ listed internal charger is float charge equipped to maintain the internal battery.
4. You can also charge the unit from your 12 volt power outlet in your vehicle
by plugging one end of the DC charging cord into the Booster Pack 12 Volt DC
power outlet and the other end into your running vehicle’s cigarette lighter.
IMPORTANT: Your BATTERY LEVEL can be at a HIGH CHARGE STATUS 14 when you push your red
Battery Level Test Button 6 . This does not necessarily indicate that the battery is FULLY CHARGED.
To be at the “Full Charge Level” the Green FULL CHARGE light on the control panel 7 will turn on
during the charging process indicating FULL CHARGE status.
PERFORMANCE GUIDELINES
For best results when using your Booster Pack:
• Clean the battery terminals or posts before connecting the clamps to the vehicle
battery. Use a battery post cleaner brush to remove corrosion from the battery
terminals or posts. Two QuickCable cleaners are recommended for cleaning
terminals, posts and cables. Solutions 510420 and 510430 will neutralize the
gray/white powdery corrosive material (see quickcable.com for more information).
WARNINGS: Possible explosion hazard. Contact with battery acid may cause severe burns and
blindness. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
• Always wear safety glasses when working with or around lead acid batteries.
• If splashed by battery acid, immediately flush the area of the splash with clean
water; if a burning sensation is felt or any blistering occurs, seek medical help.
If acid is splashed in the eyes, flush eyes with clean water continuously and seek
medical help.
• All lead acid batteries generate hydrogen gas during normal operation. This process
increases during a rapid discharge period such as when using for jump-starting.
Hydrogen gas and battery acid (sulfuric acid) can be:
• Explosive
• Poisonous to breath
• Corrosive and will burn skin, eyes and hair • Highly flammable
• Damaging to unprotected metals
• Damaging to natural fiber clothing
To avoid exposure to battery acid or the possibility of an explosion:
• Follow all instructions in this manual and your vehicle’s manual.
• Only use your Booster Pack in a well-ventilated area.
• Observe all warnings.
