WARNINGS AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Please read these safety instructions, operating instructions, and warnings
before charging or using the JUMP&GO.
Explosion Hazard - USE ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREAS. The jump
start cable clamps MUST be connected in correct polarity ~ RED clamp to the
battery Positive (+) and BLACK clamp to the battery Negative (-) terminals,
making sure they have a good connection. A reverse polarity connection
(positive to negative) can cause damage to the JUMP&GO and/or create a
sparking/explosion hazard.
Fire Hazard - Do not crush, puncture or damage the JUMP&GO.
Never allow the jump start clamps to touch each other or another common
metal conductor. This could cause damage to the unit and/or create a fire
hazard. Always disconnect the jump start cables from the JUMP&GO after
each use and store separately.
Burn Hazard - Keep away from children. Do not insert foreign objects
into the jumper cables port/jack, the USB output port, or the DC input jack.
Do not expose this product to water, rain, snow, condensation, or spray. Do
not open the JUMP&GO to replace the internal battery. There are no user
replaceable parts inside the JUMP&GO.
Additional Warnings
1. Keep the unit clear of fire and water.
2. USE ONLY THE WHISTLER PREMIUM PROTECTION CABLES. Use of other
cables may result in damage to the JUMP&GO, fire, personal injury and
damage to vehicle or property.
3. If at any time you witness the JUMP&GO starting to swell, smoke, or
become hot to the touch, DISCONNECT THE JUMP&GO AND DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY. Move JUMP&GO to a safe place away from

lights are illuminated on the JUMP&GO when pressing the power button.
3. Always use the JUMP&GO in a well ventilated area and keep the JUMP&GO
away from children, fire, water, explosive gasses, and combustible materials.
4. DO NOT CRANK IGNITION FOR MORE THAN 3 SECONDS. Cranking for
more than 3 seconds may cause damage to the unit. If vehicle does not
start, wait 1 minute before trying again. The jump-start feature is designed
for short term operation only. Refer to page 8 for additional information.
5. If the JUMP&GO becomes warm to the touch during use, disconnect the
JUMP&GO from the cables and allow to cool before reattempting to start
the vehicle.
