INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on selecting the VECTOR® JUMP-STARTER, AIR COMPRESSOR and
12 VOLT DC POWER SUPPLY. This compact jump-starter is unique in the amount of
energy it can supply for its size. The internal battery is a high density sealed,
lead-acid battery that stores and delivers energy comparable to full sized ordinary
jump-starters. Please read this guide carefully before use to ensure optimum
performance and avoid damage to the unit or items that you are using it with.
A standard feature of this model is a high pressure, self-contained tire compressor with
lighted gauge. This compressor allows quick inflation of vehicle tires to 260 PSI and with
supplied adapter nozzles, inflates beach balls, rafts and virtually any low-pressure
inflatables. Three different sized nozzles allow for easy connection to all popular
inflatables.
The VECTOR® JUMP-STARTER & 12 VOLT DC POWER SUPPLY is a compact, durable
and portable jump-start system for vehicles and boats that have a standard 12 volt
battery system. This self-contained, rechargeable system will start most vehicles and
boats without the need for a host vehicle or 110/120 volt AC power supply. It can also
be used as a safe, portable source of 12 volt DC electric power in remote locations
and/or emergency situations. It is ideal for use with Vector 12 volt DC cordless,
portable, rechargeable products and MAXXSST DC/AC Power Inverters.
Use the VECTOR JUMP-START SYSTEM to:
• Jump-start any engine system with a standard 12 volt DC battery: boat; truck; car;
airplane; RV; personal watercraft; snowmobile; garden tractor; gasoline engine
generator, etc.
• Operate: 12 volt DC fans, inflators, fluorescent worklights, cellular phones (can
quick-charge a cellular phone by using the phone’s 12 volt DC adapter cord),
spotlights, TVs, portable radios, cassette or CD players, and more.
Operate: certain 110/120 volt AC accessories (requires a Vector 12 volt power
inverter, sold separately).
The JUMP-START SYSTEM has an easy-to-read series of LED (Light Emitting Diode)
charge indicators that show when the unit is fully charged, or the level of charge in the
battery. Charge level can be viewed when the charge status pushbutton is pressed. A
12 volt DC accessory socket is provided for use with appliances that can operate from
a vehicle 12 volt DC accessory outlet. This allows maximum portability and utility when
the Jump-Start Sytem is used in remote locations.
The Jump-Start System can be recharged from any standard 110/120 volt AC power
source using the supplied AC recharge adapter. The adapter barrel connector
attaches to the recharge port on the top panel of the jump-starter. A built-in 12 volt
appliance socket and the appropriate DC/DC charging/adapter cord is used to
recharge the battery from another 12 volt DC source. When pressed, the CHARGE
STATUS button will show the battery power level status (from low to full). The green LED

2.1
EASY, STEP-BY-STEP JUMP-STARTING INSTRUCTIONS
This jump-starter is equipped with an automatic safety switch that only allows
jump-start energy to flow when proper connections are made to battery and
frame. The automatic switch works in conjunction with an audible reverse
polarity alarm and a large red LED. If inadvertent reverse polarity occurs, the
alarm will sound and the red LED will light. Disconnect the black clamp (negative
clamp) first, then the red clamp. Reconnect properly and a green LED will light.
Wait one minute and then turn the key. To recap:
Connect – Red clamp first, then black clamp.
Disconnect – Black clamp first, then red clamp.
Note: The automatic safety switch and polarity alarms require the vehicle
battery to have at least 2 volts when the clamps are connected
7.
1. Turn OFF vehicle ignition and all accessories (radio, A/C, lights, cell phone, etc.).
Place vehicle in park and set the emergency brake.
2. Remove booster clamps from protective holster (Figure 1): simply squeeze the

3. Procedure for jump-starting a NEGATIVE GROUNDED SYSTEM (NEGATIVE
BATTERY TERMINAL IS CONNECTED TO CHASSIS).
3a. Connect positive (+) red clamp to vehicle battery’s positive terminal.
3b. Connect negative (-) black clamp to chassis or a solid, non-moving, metal
vehicle component or body part. Never clamp directly to negative battery
terminal or moving part. If the audible alarm sounds, the polarity is not correct.
Reverse the connections.
4. Procedure for jump-starting POSITIVE GROUND SYSTEMS
(NOTE: In the rare event that the vehicle to be started has a Positive Grounded
System (positive battery terminal is connected to chassis) replace steps
3a and 3b above with steps 4a and 4b, then proceed to steps 5 through
7 below.
4a. Connect negative (-) black clamp to vehicle battery’s negative
terminal
4b. Connect positive (+) red clamp to vehicle chassis or a solid, non-moving,
metal vehicle component or body part. DO NOT CLAMP DIRECTLY TO
