CHARGING/RECHARGING
Lead-acid batteries require maintenance to maintain a full charge and to ensure good battery
life. All batteries lose energy from self-discharge over time and more rapidly when they are at
higher temperatures. Therefore, batteries need periodic charging to replace energy lost through
self-discharge. When Start-It Compact is not in use, Vector recommends that the battery is
recharged at least every 60 days.
All batteries must be recharged as soon as possible after each use. If a battery is allowed to
remain in a discharged state, battery life will be reduced.
NOTE: RECHARGING BATTERY AFTER EACH USE WILL PROLONG BATTERY LIFE;
FREQUENT HEAVY DISCHARGES BETWEEN RECHARGES WILL REDUCE BATTERY LIFE.
OVERCHARGING WILL REDUCE BATTERY LIFE.
The battery can be recharged using an AC adapter or DC adapter. See figures 3a and 3b - AC
Recharge Adapter and DC Recharge Adapter.

Check the battery charge level by pressing the Charge Status Button. The LED Charge Status
display will indicate the level of charge of the main battery When only one red LED lights, be
sure to recharge the unit.
4.1
AC RECHARGE
The AC Recharge Adapter is a UL approved “wall” type unit that operates from any 110 volt,
60 Hz AC supply that has a standard North American receptacle. The wire has a barrel connector that plugs into the unit to recharge the internal battery. See Figure 3A AC Recharge
Adapter.
Make sure that the Safety Switch and the Work light are turned off during AC recharge. When
a powered AC Recharge adapter’s barrel connector is plugged into the Recharge Port, the
Battery Status Display will automatically activate. As recharge progresses, the red LEDs will
light one by one. Charge the unit until the Battery Status Display lights the or flashes the green
FULL LED. Continue to recharge for one to two hours, and then disconnect the AC Recharge
Adapter. AC recharge system is an automatic taper charge and The AC Recharge Adapter can
be left connected to the Main Unit for long periods. See Figure 1 for AC Recharge port location
of the Start-It..

DURING RECHARGE, THIS MAY SLOW RECHARGE OF THE MAIN BATTERY.
Unlike the AC Recharge method, DC Recharge does not automatically activate the Battery
Status Display and provide a taper charge. To check the battery status, press the Battery Status
Display Pushbutton. If the Jump Starter’s battery is fully discharged, it is recommended that the
host vehicle or boat’s engine being used for recharging be left operating while the unit is being
charged using the 12 volt DC/DC method.
NOTE: The DC recharge method will recharge the unit’s battery, but the green LED may not
light if the charging source is below 12.6 volts.AC recharge is the best method.
WARNING: DO NOT RECHARGE MAIN UNIT FOR MORE THAN 3 HOURS MAXIMUM
USING 12 VOLT DC METHOD. DO NOT LEAVE UNIT UNATTENDED WHILE
DC CHARGING.
1. Insert the DC Plug of the DC Recharge Adapter into a DC Recharge/Accessory socket on the
