General Safety Warnings
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Electrical Safety
1.
Charger plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs that are
earthed (grounded). Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
2. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
3. Do not expose the Batteryless Jump Starter to rain or wet conditions. Water entering the Batteryless Jump Starter
will increase the risk of electric shock.
4. Do not abuse the cords. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the charger. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
5. If operating a charger in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use
of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
6. Do not operate powered products in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or
dust. Powered products create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
7. Keep children and bystanders away while operating any powered products. Distractions can lead to injury of
yourself or the bystanders.
8. When the Batteryless Jump Starter is not in use, keep it away from other metal object, like paper clips, coins, keys,
nails, screws or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the
battery clamps together may cause burns or a fire.
9. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical sensors or mental
capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instructions
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
10. Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.
11. Always take care when using this appliance.
Additional Safety Instructions for Batteries and Chargers
1.
Do not modify or take the Batteryless Jump Starter apart, re-assemble, repair battery or charger to avoid breaking
or damaging of the components.
2. Do not place or allow the Batteryless Jump Starter to come into contact with water, fire or high-temperature
environments.
3. Do not puncture, damage or deform the Batteryless Jump Starter.
4. Do not allow the + /- terminals of the Batteryless Jump Starter to come in contact with each other. This could cause
a short circuit of the Batteryless Jump Starter.
5. Do not store in locations where the temperature may exceed 65°C.
6. Charge only at ambient temperatures between -40°C and 65°C.
7. Only charge the Batteryless Jump Starter using the charging adaptors provided with the product.
8. Do not attempt to charge damaged batteries.
9. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the Batteryless Jump Starter; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, flush with water and seek medical attention. Liquid
ejected from the Batteryless Jump Starter may cause irritation or burns.
10. Only use external power supply designed to be used with the Batteryless Jump Starter.
11. Dispose of batteries in accordance with your local council regulations.

It is suggested that you have your vehicles’ battery and charging
system checked by a mechanic or auto electrician to ensure that your vehicles charging system is functioning
correctly, or if you suspect the battery is becoming unreliable. (any such costs associated with seeking advice
from an automotive repairer is not covered by Kincrome).
•
Or recharge your vehicles battery using the KP8001 / KP8002 Battery Charging Function or a battery charger
compatible with your batteries ratings. Refer to the battery chargers output rating details to ensure it is
suitable for use on your battery.
Note: KP8001 & KP8002 Battery Charger Function is shown on Page 8.
WARNING! DO NOT leave the vehicles’ engine running with the Batteryless Jump Starter connected to the battery
after jump starting the vehicle.

4. GLOW PLUG Mode (Use on Diesel Engine Vehicles)
Generally, a diesel engine vehicle requires the glow plugs to be first energized to heat up
the engine chamber before the engine starts, as indicated by the GLOW PLUG icon on the
dashboard of the diesel vehicle.
The process needs current of approx. 40-60 Amp and takes 4-6 seconds of power to
pre-heat the GLOW PLUGS in the vehicles engine.
Fig 16
1. Ensure that the Batteryless Jump Starter is fully charged and connected to the
vehicles battery, as described in Standard Operation 1.1, press the GLOW PLUG Button (5),
and the GLOW PLUG icon will appear in the LCD Control Panel Display (3) (Fig 4).
2. Turn ON the vehicles ignition to pre heat the glow plugs of the vehicles engine.
3. After the vehicles glow plug icon extinguishes from the vehicle’s dashboard, you may now start the vehicle’s
engine, immediately disconnect the Batteryless Jump Starter from the vehicle’s battery.
Note: GLOW PLUG mode is inactive under Bypass mode.

Once the battery is fully charged, the word ‘FUL’ will be displayed on the LCD Control Display Panel (3) (Fig 7).
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a Batteryless Jump Starter safe for a car’s ECU computer?
Yes. Batteryless Jump Starters use super-capacitors instead of a battery. The voltage of the capacitors are restricted
within the safe range of all kinds of ECU’s, so there is no risk from over-voltage damage. Capacitors have a very
small charge, approx. 0.2 - 0.4 Ah. Disconnecting the Batteryless Jump Starter will not cause any high load dump,
so there is no damaging voltage spike.
Most ECU jump start damage is caused by the following reasons:
1.
2.
Jump starting Car to Car - Not all modern cars have compatible charging systems and may cause damage to
one or both if linked during a jump starting procedure.
Jump Starting with a booster pack or other battery - When a car is started by a booster pack or donor car’s
battery, the alternator will start to recharge both batteries after the engine has started. When the booster
pack is disconnected from the car, the power produced by the alternator is much more than what the cars
battery can absorb, thus pushing up the voltage. Transient voltage spikes can reach 25 - 100V, which can easily
damage the ECU.
8
BATTERYLESS JUMP STARTER
What is Bypass mode?
The ECU of some cars doesn’t allow the engine to start if the batteries voltage is lower than 8V. In this situation, the
positive battery lead needs to be disconnected from the car battery and connected directly to the Positive Battery
Clamp RED (1). When connected like this the vehicle battery is “by-passed” (Bypass Mode). The ECU can then detect
the higher voltage provided by the Batteryless Jump Starter and allow the car to start.
How long can the Batteryless Jump Starter hold charge?
The Batteryless Jump Starter will hold a charge for one to two days. The period of charge storage is a NOT a critical
issue with your Batteryless Jump Starter as it can be rapidly charged from various power sources within minutes.
Does the Batteryless Jump Starter need to be regularly recharged?
No. Unlike a battery, capacitors do not require a shelf charge to stay functional, and therefore do NOT require
ongoing recharge maintenance. The Batteryless Jump Starter can be operational within minutes.
