INTRODUCTION

This Jump Starter does not have, nor does it require a battery. In place of a battery this
Jump Starter is equipped with capacitors temporarily able to store sufficient electrical
charge to allow a vehicle to be started.

The charge input for the capacitors may be from a vehicle lacking sufficient battery
charge to start the vehicle, a healthy battery in a normally functioning vehicle, a 12V DC
outlet or a USB outlet.

Typically a normally functioning vehicle battery carries a charge of 12.2 volts. Should the
voltage of the battery fall below 10.6 volts, it is unlikely the battery will have sufficient
charge to start a vehicle.

In most cases the capacitor Jump Starter can be charged from a depleted battery. It may
also be charged from an independent power source. The Jump Starter does not have to
be pre-charged; it is charged “there and then” as the situation arises.

This product is intended for private vehicle use only, and is not intended for commercial,
trade or industrial use.

This Jump Starter has been engineered to address a variety of situations which could confront a 

motorist with a disabled vehicle.
The operational sequence is determined by the status of the deficient battery.

This sequence must be followed according to the instructions below.

1.0.  Below voltage required to start a vehicle
2.0.  Well below the voltage required to start a vehicle
3.0.  Completely without charge “dead battery”

Start by connecting to the deficient battery. If the Fault/Override indicator light (B) blinks, the 

procedure to be followed is firstly, (1) “Below Voltage Required to Start a Vehicle”, and should 

this fail to fully charge the Jump Starter, revert to the procedure described under (2) “Well 

below the Voltage Required to Start a Vehicle”.

  

  1.0. Below Voltage Required to Start a Vehicle 

Follow this procedure when the Jump Starter is connected to a deficient battery, the Fault/

Override indicator (B) blinks and the Jump Starter is able to be fully charged by the deficient battery.

1.1

  Connect the battery clamps to the vehicle's battery- red to the positive battery terminal,

black to the negative battery terminal. When both terminals have been connected the Fault/

Override indicator light (B) will blink.

1.2

 Activate the charge button, (C) . The Fault/Override indicator light (B) will extinguish.

Note: If the Fault/Override indicator light does not extinguish,

 press the Charge button again

to activate correctly.

1.3 

 When the charge button has been activated, the voltage level in the battery will be displayed

on the Battery Charge Level Indicator (A).

As the capacitors in the unit accumulate charge, the lights on the indicator panel will begin to

rise. As the charging process nears completion the two top lights will start to blink green. Finally,

when fully charged, both lights are a fixed green and the unit is ready to start the disabled vehicle.

1.3A

 Should the Jump Starter not fully charge (two uppermost lights on Battery Level Indicator, 

not attain a fixed green status), which can occur when the battery is significantly run down, 

reactivate the charge button. 

NOTE: Should the Jump Starter not fully charge after five

attempts or an alarm sounds, continue with 2.0 or 3.0 detailed below.

1.4

 When ready to start the vehicle, press the Start button (D) twice. The Fault/Override

indicator light (B) will become a fixed green light.

1.5 

Turn the ignition on and your vehicle should start. If the vehicle fails to start,

repeat steps 1.1 - 1.4 for a maximum of 5 times. If the vehicle still does not start, stop and

continue with 2.0 or 3.0 as detailed below.

1.6

 After the vehicle has started, the Jump Starter can be disconnected, and the vehicle will 

continue to run.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

   2.0. Well Below the Voltage Level Required to Start the Vehicle

Follow this procedure when the Jump Starter’s Fault/Override indicator (B) blinks, but the Jump

Starter is unable to be fully charged by the deficient battery.

There are several very important safety aspects which need to be understood and practiced 

prior to activating the Jump Starter Bypass Mode. 

It is important to read through the bullet points below in their entirety and fully understand 

prior to proceeding further.

• The vehicle's positive lead to the disabled battery must be disconnected.

• The Jump Starter’s positive lead is connected to the disconnected positive battery 

lead

, and

the Jump Starter's negative lead connected to the negative battery 

post

 (which will have the

vehicle's negative lead attached).

• The critical point in the process is to reconnect the vehicle's disconnected positive lead to

the positive battery post, whilst maintaining connection of both Jump Starter leads.

• BE AWARE - Unless due care is exercised, it is possible to dislodge the Jump Starter leads

while reattaching the positive vehicle lead. Should this happen the vehicle's electrical system

could be damaged.

• For the above reason, the reconnection process must be practiced, and only when you are

confident in this process, should you proceed to implement the processes of charging the

Jump Starter and starting the vehicle.

CAUTION: Ensure the Jump Starter is switched OFF whilst mastering this technique!

Failure to reconnect the vehicle's lead to the battery post prior to disconnection of either of the 

Jump Starter leads may cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system.

Steps required to start the vehicle:

2.1

 Prepare the disabled vehicle to receive the Jump Starter - disconnect the vehicle's battery

lead from the battery post (Fig.3).

2.2 

Charge the Jump Starter from a power source other than the deficient battery: a 

battery in another vehicle, a 12V DC outlet (G) in another vehicle, a USB charging outlet (F). 

(refer specifications for a guide to charging times).

2.3

 Connect the Jump Starter's positive lead to vehicle's positive battery lead (Fig.4).

2.4 

Activate the Bypass Mode by holding down the On/Off Start Button (D) until a series 

of beeps is heard and the Fault/Override indicator light (B) becomes a fixed green. This

indicates the Bypass Mode has been activated.

2.5

 Attach the negative Jump Starter lead to the battery's negative post (still connected)

(Fig.5).

 

2.6

 Turn the ignition on and the vehicle should start. If the vehicle fails to start, repeat

steps 2.1 – 2.5 for a maximum of 5 times. If the vehicle still does not start, stop and

continue with 3.0 as detailed below.

2.7

 After the vehicle starts, carefully reconnect the vehicle's disconnected positive battery

lead to the positive battery post, ensuring both Jump Starter leads remain connected (Fig.6)

2.8

 Once the vehicle's positive lead has been reconnected to the post, you can safely

disconnect the Jump Starter's positive lead. (Fig.7).

2.9

 After disconnecting the Jump Starter's positive lead, deactivate Bypass Mode by pressing

the ON/OFF button (D), once. The Fault Override indicator light (B) will extinguish (confirming 

the Bypass Mode has been deactivated).

2.10  

Disconnect the negative Jump Starter lead.

2.11

 Before switching off the vehicle, take it for a short drive to allow the deficient battery

to recharge.
