INTRODUCTION & FEATURES
INTRODUCTION
The MFJ-4416C Super Battery Booster is designed with the serious mobile operator in mind. In
the mobile environment low battery voltage can cause output signal distortion, output power
problems and even transceiver resetting. This low voltage occurs in two ways. First – even low
resistance wiring can result in noticeable voltage drop. And second when you turn off your
vehicle or remove a typical battery from the charger, the battery voltage can drop from the
nominal 13.8 volts to 12 volts after a short period of time. With this in mind the MFJ-4416C
Super Battery Booster corrects all of these problems. With its high efficiency boost regulator
circuitry, it will maintain the desired 13.8 volts at up to 25 amps ICAS from voltages as low as 9
volts.
The MFJ-4416C has been redesigned to make the device more robust with heavy duty transistors
and rectifiers, improved switch mode transformer, and larger heatsinks on vital components. The
EMI filters on the input and output of the MFJ-4416C are designed to reduce noise to a
minimum so radio reception while on is normally no problem.
FEATURES
Choice of Input and Output Connections: No need to fumble around looking for connectors. The
MFJ-4416C gives you a choice of Anderson PowerPoleTM connectors or 5-way binding posts on
the input and output.
Adjustable Output Voltage: User adjustable output voltage. Factory set at 13.8 volts this
voltage is adjustable anywhere from 12 to 13.8 volts.
Selectable Minimum Input Voltage: You have the choice of the minimum input voltage the
MFJ-4416C will operate on. Set from the factory at 10 volts you can select 9 or 11 volts. This
keeps you from possibly over discharging your battery and damaging it. It is even latchable so
once the voltage drops the Boost Regulator stop until you remove the power from the unit.
Audio Alert Feature: When enable instantly alerts you when the input voltage drops below the
preset level.

2. External Boost Enable: This connector allows remote enabling of the booster from the
radio amp key line or other remote devices.
CONNECTION AND OPERATION
DC Power Connection:
The MFJ-4416C is designed to boost voltages as low as 9V up to 13.8V at up to 25A. At high
currents the voltage drop from even large gauge wires can be appreciable for even short runs. It
is recommended to use a large gauge wire (such as #8 or #10) to reduce the voltage drop.
Connect the wire to the battery or other high current terminal on the vehicle for best results.
Connection to the lighter jack or a smaller fuse block is not recommended because of the smaller
gauge wires used in the automotive wiring harnesses. A fuse in the positive line near the battery
is recommended to protect the wiring from accidental shorts circuits. Connect the radio to the
MFJ-4416C using the wiring harness from the radio manufacturer. MFJ carries a number of
cables that can be used for this purpose. See page 13 for model numbers.
Figure 4
DC Wiring
Terminal connections to and from the MFJ-4416C can use 30A Anderson PowerPole terminals,
crimp lugs, banana plugs or wires straight to the 5 way binding posts. Follow the connector
manufacturers instructions for attaching the terminal lugs. Make sure the lugs are tightly crimped
to insure they do not pull loose. If the binding posts are used make sure the binding posts are
tightened down so the lug will not pull off the post. Wires that connect to the binding posts
directly are not recommended because they can pull loose easily.
Remote and External Control Connections:
External Control: The MFJ-4416C can be enabled externally through the EXTERNAL
BOOST ENABLE connector allowing the unit to be enabled a number of ways including the
ignition line, and the radio amplifier key line. There are a total of 4 control lines. Two will
enable the MFJ-4416C when grounded and two will enable the MFJ-4416C when tied to a 4-13V
source.
Connecting either pin 1 or 2 to the amplifier key line of the radio if it has one will set up the
MFJ-4416C to enable only when transmitting. This will help reduce any noise that may be
generated by the switching boost circuit while receiving. See your radio manual for the proper
connections to the radio.
Connecting either pin 3 or pin 4 of the external control connector to an accessory line will allow
the booster to be enabled when the vehicle is turned on or when it is set in accessory on the
ignition switch. This will help reduce the current drain on the battery when the vehicle is off.

MFJ-4416C Super Battery Booster
Instruction and Technical Manual
Operation:
Once wired in the unit will boost the incoming voltage to 13.8V when enabled for any voltage
between the minimum voltage and 13.8V. If the incoming voltage is above what the output
voltage is set to the output voltage will rise to the incoming voltage minus about a half volt.
When the MFJ-4416C is not energized the input voltage is passed to the output connectors and
has about a half volt drop due to the internal rectifiers.
There are protective diodes that protect the input and output from exceeding 18V or being
reverse wired.
The MFJ-4416C is not designed to boost the voltage of a 6V electrical system up to 13V and will
not run on a positive ground system. It will also not reduce the voltage of a 24V or higher system
to 13V.

MFJ-4416C Super Battery Booster
Instruction and Technical Manual
Input Filtering: The input filter consists of C13 which provides EMI filtering followed by L1,
C12 and C11 which are a low pass filter at the alternator which range. C8, C9 and C10 provide
low ESR energy storage which helps to suppress input noise while providing energy during input
low voltage transient periods. Diode D1 and capacitors C3 and C4 provide additional filtering
and energy storage feeding the SMPS controller IC1. The additional energy storage is isolated
from any transient load causing a voltage drop on the input protecting IC1 from resets and gaps
in the boost function. Diode D2 is a transient suppressor diode and acts to protect the unit against
transient voltages greater than 15 Volts.
SMPS controller: IC1 is a packaged SMPS controller with built in voltage reference. This is a
constant frequency pule width modulated regulator with built in driver for the MOSFET gates.
The switching frequency is set as 50Khz. The controller is enabled/disabled by the soft start
control input. This input is grounded to disable the SMPS boost supply. An open collector of Q8
and series resistor R44 provide the control function. Feedback from the output voltage is
provided by the voltage divider consisting of R9, Potentiometer R8 and R10. This feedback is
compared against the voltage reference to adjust the pulse width and resulting voltage output.
The voltage reference is supplied to the analog control section for voltage level decision making.
MOSFET drivers and transformer: A push pull configuration using two FDP56N06
MOSFETs drives the transformer T1. T1 uses two tapped windings allowing the input voltage to
be placed in series with the SMPS output voltage. The turns ration is .57:1 in series with the DC
input voltage results in a boost of 1.57 over the input voltage. The tapped points on the two
windings are fed to the common cathode rectifier pair D3. Using MOSFET Q1 as an example for
both the Q1 and Q2 circuitry. The gate circuit consists of R6, R3 and FB1. R6 and FB1 minimize
ringing and parasitic oscillations while R3 is a base drain that discharges the gate to substrate
capacity while the unit is not powered. The storage of energy in the gate capacity as a result of
residual energy from previous operation or static can allow both transistors to attempt to conduct
during the next power up cycle before the control IC takes control of the gate usually destroying
one or both MOSFETs.
Output Filtering: The output filter consists of toroid inductor L2 with capacitors C14 through
C22 that act as a low pass filter and energy storage bank. The total energy storage is 23,500 UF
distributed over 5 capacitors to minimize ESR. Capacitor C22 is located close to the output and
serves as an EMI suppressor. Diode D4 is a 15 volt transient suppressor diode and protects the
unit from transient seen on the output terminals.
Over-voltage Protection: SCR T2 provides a overvoltage crowbar which is controlled by zener
diode D5. The input circuitry uses a pi filter consisting of C25, L3 and C24. This filter minimizes
the false tripping of the OVP circuit by RF energy radiated back into the power leads. R12
protects the gate of the SCR against high currents and C23 and R11 provide time delay and
protects against leakage currents through D5 tripping the OVP.
Enable Circuitry: The SMPS boost circuit is controlled by grounding its “Soft Start” input. This
is done with an open collector transistor circuit Q8 and series resistor R44. When Q8 is saturated
the soft start input is held at ground and the SMPS boost is inoperative. The circuitry of Q8
provides an OR gate that allows either the enable line or the low voltage disable line to
independently shut off the SMPS boost circuit. The enable line is puller up to the DC input
voltage by R13 and maybe grounded by Q7, SW1 or through pin 3 of the external control
connector. The green LED is illuminated by the grounding of the enable line.

_____________________________________________________________________
MFJ-4416C Super Battery Booster
Instruction and Technical Manual
External Keying Inputs: Four external signals may enable the SMPS boost. Two negative
going signals are inputted through X1 pins 1 and 2. These signals are ORed by D6 and pulled up
by R30. Q6 acts as an inverter to produce a positive going signal that saturates Q7 grounding the
enable line. Two positive going signals are inputted through X1 pins 3 and 4. These signals are
ORed by D8 and fed to Q7. These signals directly saturate Q7 grounding the enable line. Each
input line has a low pass filter to protect the unit from RF conducted from the transmitter and
EMI conducted back to the receiver. A 100 mA auto-reset fuse is used to feed DC input voltage
to pin 5 for powering external accessories.
Low Battery Voltage Enable: When enabled by HDR5 a low voltage on the input terminals
may automatically enable the SMPS boost circuitry. HDR4 selects the trigger voltage level as 10,
11 or 12 volts. The 5 volt reference voltage supplied from the SMPS controller IC is used as a
voltage reference for the trigger circuit IC2C. R36 and the resistor selected by HDR4 form a
voltage divider used to compare against the reference voltage to set to low voltage trigger limit.
When the low limit is reached the output of IC2C goes low discharging C41 through D9 and
R40. IC2D acts as a high input impedance comparator against the reference voltage and when
C41 is discharged the output of IC2D goes to ground which through HDR5 enables Q6 and
through Q7 grounds the enable line. When the input voltage rises above the low limit
potentiometer R41, R40 and C41 provide an adjustable time delay holding the SMPS boost on.
The delay is to allow current peaks during SSB and CW that pull that battery low and trigger the
SMPS to be held allowing a continuous SMPS boost output to assure a constant voltage is
provided to the transmitter.
Low Voltage Lockout: HDR1 sets the low voltage limit that the SMPS boost is allowed to
operate. When the input voltage is below the low limit the SMPS boost is disabled by saturating
Q8 grounding the soft start line on IC1. The low voltage lockout maybe transient during the
period the input voltage is low or maybe latched requiring power to be removed to reset the
latch. The latching of the low voltage lockout is selected by HDR2. HDR1 selects an input
resistor that with R16 form a voltage divider that with IC2A compare the input voltage to the
reference voltage from IC1. HDR1 allows the limit to be set at 9, 10 and 11 volts. R14 provides
feedback that sets the hysteresis of the comparator. The output of IC1A is pulled up by R15 and
fed to D7. D7 feeds a negative going signal to Q4 which saturates Q5 illuminating the red LED
and if HDR3 is present sounding the audio alert. D7 feed R23 which along with C33, IC2B and
R22 form a time delay to minimize false trips of the lockout by transient voltage drops. The
output of IC2B is normally low and is pulled up by R21. When the low voltage lockout is
triggered IC2B output goes high feeding the low voltage disable signal through D10 saturating
Q8 and disabling the SMPS boost circuit. Q3 is also saturated and if HDR2 is in place grounds
the input voltage divider latching the lockout until the input power is removed.
Remote Control Input: An 8 pin RJ45 jack is provided to allow connection to the remote
control unit. Each signal pin is bypassed to ground by EMI suppression capacitors. The Low
voltage signal and enable signals are accessed by this jack. Input and output voltages are also
present and protected by 100 mA auto-reset fuses.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
Low Voltage Disconnect trips under high demand conditions
This can be caused by 2 things. First ensure your battery is charged. A discharged battery will
recover voltage under low current conditions, but once current is drawn it will immediately drop
below the cutout voltage. Second, ensure the wiring on the input side of the unit is adequate for
the current being drawn and the lengths of the cable run.
Enable LED fails to illuminate.
Ensure that you are either feeding one of the enable lines from the radio amplifier key line into
the unit or the Enable/Disable switch is depressed.
Minimum Battery Voltage
According to battery manufacturers vehicle batteries are normally considered drained at 11.6V
with no load. Under load the voltage will be a little lower. Below about 9-10V the voltage will
drop fast with any load. The battery life may suffer and the vehicle may not start when the
battery is that low.
