Congratulations on purchasing your new Cat® Professional Jump Starter. Read this Instruction Manual and follow the instructions carefully before using this unit.

CAT Professional Jump-Starter - INTRODUCTION

CHARGING/RECHARGING

Lead-acid batteries require routine maintenance to ensure a full charge and long battery life. All batteries lose energy from self-discharge over time and more  rapidly at higher temperatures. Therefore, batteries need periodic charging to replace energy lost through self-discharge. When the unit is not in frequent use,  manufacturer recommends the battery be recharged at least every 30 days.
Notes: This unit is delivered in a partially charged state – you must fully charge it upon purchase and before using it for the first time for a full 40 hours or until  the green LED Battery Status Indicator lights solid.  Recharging the battery after each use will prolong battery life; frequent heavy discharges between recharges  and/or overcharging will reduce battery life. Make sure all other unit functions are turned off during recharging, as this can slow the recharging process. In some  rare cases, if the battery is overly discharged and the green LED lights immediately when the charger is plugged in, this indicates the battery is at a high  impedance stage. If this occurs, recharge the unit for a period of 24-48 hours before use.

warning signCAUTION: RISK OF PROPERTY DAMAGE: Failure to keep the battery charged will cause permanent damage and result in poor jump starting performance.
Charging/Recharging Using the 120 Volt AC Charger and a Standard Household Extension Cord (not included)

120 VOLT AC PORTABLE POWER SUPPLY

This unit has a built-in Power Inverter that provides up to 200 watts of AC power. This inverter is an electronic device that converts low voltage DC (direct  current) electricity from a battery to 120 volts AC (alternating current) household power. It converts power in two stages. The first stage is a DC-to-DC conversion process that raises the low voltage DC at the inverter input to 145 volts DC. The second stage is a MOSFET bridge stage that converts the high  voltage DC into 120 volts, 60 Hz AC.
Power Inverter Output Waveform
The AC output waveform of this inverter is known as a modified sine wave. It is a stepped waveform that has characteristics similar to the sine wave shape of  utility power. This type of waveform is suitable for most AC loads, including linear and switching power supplies used in electronic equipment, transformers, and small motors.
Rated Versus Actual Current Draw of Equipment
Most electrical tools, appliances, electronic devices and audio/visual equipment have labels that indicate the power consumption in amps or watts. Be sure that the  power consumption of the item to be operated is below 200 watts. If the power consumption is rated in amps AC, simply multiply by the AC volts (120) to  determine the wattage. Resistive loads are the easiest for the inverter to run; however, it will not run larger resistive loads (such as electric stoves and heaters),  which require far more wattage than the inverter can deliver. Inductive loads (such as TVs and stereos) require more current to operate than do resistive loads of  the same wattage rating.
warning signCAUTION: Rechargeable Devices

  • Certain rechargeable devices are designed to be charged by plugging them directly into an AC receptacle. These devices may damage the inverter or the charging circuit.
  • When using a rechargeable device, monitor its temperature for the initial ten minutes of use to determine if it produces excessive heat.
  • If excessive heat is produced, this indicates the device should not be used with this inverter.
  • This problem does not occur with most of the battery-operated equipment. Most of these devices use a separate charger or transformer that is plugged into an AC receptacle.
  • The inverter is capable of running most chargers and transformers.
    Protective Features
    The inverter monitors the following conditions:
Low internal battery voltage The inverter will automatically shut down when the battery voltage drops too low, as this can harm the battery.
High internal battery voltage The inverter will automatically shut down when the battery voltage is too high, as this can harm the unit.
Thermal shutdown protection The inverter will automatically shut down when the unit becomes overheated.
Overload/short circuit protection The inverter will automatically shut down when an overload or short circuit occurs.

MPORTANT NOTES: The Inverter Power/Fault Indicator is located inside the Translucent Inverter/USB Power Button.

  1. The compressor won’t inflate although it sounds like it does. Any suggestions to try and fix unit is about 2/3 years old but not had much use.
    Thanks

  2. Unit fully charged, finally needed to jumpstart my car and it failed to do anygood. Notice the engine light and exclamation symbol were blinking. Trying to call tech support- the line is busy, busy, busy (646) 568-9682
