2 ways to use a battery pack to start vehicle & recharge as well

Vehicle start using battery pack & recharge as well


Vehicle battery died suddenly and I need to get it replaced under warranty. So for now, use the battery pack to help get it going.

1st turn the pack to the on or connector position
2nd connect the red cable to the positive terminal
3rd connect the black cable to negative terminal
(that is the way in North America) positive to positive and negative to negative

4th let the battery pack sit on the battery for a moment or so
4a try to start the vehicle, if it starts, great
now that is what most people know

5th if it does not start and there is little to no power in the vehicle battery, you need to leave the battery backup / power pack connected to the vehicle battery for 15-20 mins depending on how low the vehicle starting battery is

6th wait 15-20 min, try starting the vehicle it starts,
disconnect negative first, then positive, now turn the power pack to the off position

7th it started but you do not have time to recharge the battery pack, let it stay on the vehicle hooked up the way it is for a good 10 mins, or do so when you park it but do not turn off the vehicle

8th this recharges the battery pack enough to use it the rest of the day if needed
9th take it in building at night and let it charge using the 110v plug in for a much deeper fuller charge.
Hope this helps
