WARNING: Charge unit fully prior to use.
Keep unit clear of fire and water. The 100W mobile power pack is not
intended for use in connection with life support systems or other medical
equipment or devices.
WARNING: Shock hazard.
Keep away from children. The power pack generates the same potentially
lethal AC power as a normal household wall outlet. Do not insert foreign
objects into the AC outlet, the DC power pack socket, the jump start cable
port, or the ventilation hole, do not expose this product to water, rain, snow,
condensation, or spray. Do not open the power pack expect to replace the
internal battery. Have a qualified technician perform any service work.
WARNING: Explosion hazard
Do not use this product where there are flammable fumes or gases, such as
in the bilge of a gasoline-powered boat, or near propane tanks. Do not use
this product in an enclosure containing automotive-type lead-acid batteries.
These batteries, unlike the sealed AGM battery in power pack, vent explosive
hydrogen gas which can be ignited by sparks from electrical connections.
When working on electrical equipment, always ensure someone is nearby to
help you in an emergency.
WARNING: Heated surface
Ensure at least 2” (5cm) air space is maintained on all sides of the power
pack. During operation, keep away from materials that may be affected by
high temperatures such as blankets, pillows and sleeping bags.
WARNING: Fire hazard
Never allow jump start cables’ red and black clamps to touch each other or
another common metal conductor. This could cause damage to the unit
and/or create a sparking/explosion hazard. Always disconnect the jump start
cables from the unit after use and clip the plastic guard over the jump start
cable port.
Jump start cable clamps must be connected positive to positive (red clip to
battery “+”) and negative to negative (black clip to battery “-“or engine
ground). A reverse polarity connection (positive to negative) may cause
damage to the unit and/or create a sparking/explosion hazard.
3
Introduction
WARNING: Fire hazard
The jump start feature is designed for short term operation only- less than 5
seconds. Operating the jump start feature for more than 5 seconds may
cause damage to the unit. Allow the power pack to cool down for at least 3
minutes after each jump start.
WARNING: Risk of explosion, fire or burns
The battery terminals exposed at the jump start cable port have enough
energy present to cause a spark, creating an explosion hazard, or to cause
burns if a metal object contacts both terminals. Always clip the plastic guard
over the port when not in use.
CAUTION: Equipment damage
Do not expose the power pack to temperatures over 104° F(40° C) or under
14° F(-10° C).
Introduction
7. Someone should be within range of your voice, or close enough to come to
your aid when you work near batteries.
8. Have plenty of fresh water, soap and a supply of baking soda on hand in
the area of the batteries in case of contact with battery acid. Baking soda
neutralizes lead acid battery electrolyte.
9. The product is supplied with a rechargeable, sealed lead acid battery. This
battery is self contained and not consumer replaceable. Batteries must be
disposed of properly when they no longer hold a charge. Proper charging
practices will increase the life of the batteries.
For information on battery recycling call toll free 800-822-8837.
Precautions when working with batteries
WARNING: Explosion and fire hazard
1. Follow all instructions published by the battery manufacturer and the
manufacturer of the equipment in which the battery is installed.
2. Make sure the area around the battery is well-ventilated.
3. Never smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of the engine or
batteries.
4. Be careful not to drop a metal object on the battery or allow a metal tool
to simultaneously touch the positive and negative cable ends or battery
terminals. It might spark or short-circuit the battery or other electrical
parts and cause an explosion.
5. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and
watches when working with batteries. Batteries produce a short-circuit
current high enough to weld a ring or other similar objects to metal,
causing a severe burn.
6. If you need to remove a battery, always remove the negative terminal
from the battery first. Make sure all accessories are off so you don’t cause
an arc.

battery gases gases. These gases are very corrosive and prolonged exposure
will damage the power pack
AC appliances
The power pack has one grounded AC power outlet for use with AC
appliance. You can either plug the appliance directly into the AC outlet or you
can use an AC power bar to increase the number of outlets available.
However, for continuous operations, the combined loads must be less than
80W. The less wattage used, the longer the power pack will operate before
recharging is required.
Operating range:
• 80 watts or less for continuous operation
• 100 watts for 5-minute operation
Some appliance may be difficult or impossible to operate from the power
pack. They may have high surge requirements or may be incompatible with
the output waveform of the power pack. See “High Surge Appliances” and
“Trouble Appliances” (page 10).
NOTE: To determine required wattage for a device, look up required Amps a
device is rated. This Amperage is found on device I.D. tag in back of the unit.

Troubleshooting
Buzzing in audio systems and radios
Some inexpensive stereo systems and AM-FM radios have inadequate internal
power supply filtering and “buzz” slightly when powered by the power pack.
Generally, the only solution is an audio product with a higher quality filter.
Television interference
The power pack is shielded to minimize its interference with TV signals.
However, with weak TV signals interference may be visible in the form of lines
scrolling across the screen. The following should minimize or eliminate the
problem:
• Increase the distance between the inverter and the TV, antenna and cables.
• Adjust the orientation of the inverter television, antenna and cables.
• Maximize TV signal strength by using a better antenna and use shielded
antenna cable where possible.
WARNING: Electric shock hazard
Do not remove the cover of the unit or disassemble. The unit does not contain
any internal user-serviceable parts and attempting to service the unit yourself
could result in electrical shock or burn.
