  7. Have plenty of fresh water, soap, and baking soda nearby for use, in case battery acid contacts your eyes, skin, or clothing.
  8. Wear complete eye and body protection, including safety goggles and protective clothing. Avoid touching your eyes while working near the battery.
  9. If battery acid contacts your skin or clothing, immediately wash the area with soap and water. If acid enters your eye, immediately flood the eye with cold running water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention right away.
  10. If battery acid is accidentally swallowed, drink milk, the whites of eggs, or water. DO NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention immediately.
  11. Neutralize any acid spills thoroughly with baking soda before attempting to clean up.
  12. This product contains a lithium-ion battery. In case of fire, you may use water, a foam extinguisher, Halon, CO2, ABC dry chemical, powdered graphite, copper powder, or soda (sodium carbonate) to extinguish the fire. Once the fire is extinguished, douse the product with water, an aqueous-based extinguishing agent, or other nonalcoholic liquids to cool the product and prevent the battery from re-igniting. NEVER attempt to pick up or move a hot, smoking, or burning product, as you may be injured.

PREPARING TO USE THE UNIT

WARNING! RISK OF CONTACT WITH BATTERY ACID. BATTERY ACID IS A HIGHLY CORROSIVE SULFURIC ACID.

  1. Make sure the area around the battery is well-ventilated while the unit is in use.
  2. Clean the battery terminals before using the jump starter. During cleaning, keep airborne corrosion from coming into contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth. Use baking soda and water to neutralize the battery acid and help eliminate airborne corrosion. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  3. Determine the voltage of the battery by referring to the vehicle owner’s manual and make sure that the output voltage is 12V.
  4. Make sure that the unit’s cable clamps make tight connections.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN CONNECTING TO A BATTERY

WARNING! A SPARK NEAR THE BATTERY MAY CAUSE A BATTERY EXPLOSION. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A SPARK NEAR THE BATTERY:

  1. Plug the clamps into the unit, and then attach the output cables to the battery and chassis as indicated below. Never allow the output clamps to touch each other.
  2. Position the DC cables to reduce the risk of damage by the hood, door, and moving or hot engine parts. NOTE: If it is necessary to close the hood during the jump-starting process, ensure that the hood does not touch the metal part of the battery clips or cut the insulation of the cables.
  3. Stay clear of fan blades, belts, pulleys, and other parts that can cause injury.
  4. Check the polarity of the battery posts. The POSITIVE (POS, P, +) battery post usually has a larger diameter than the NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) post.
  5. Determine which battery post is grounded (connected) to the chassis. If the negative post is grounded to the chassis (as in most vehicles), see step 4.6. If the positive post is grounded to the chassis, see step 4.7.
  6. For a negative-grounded vehicle, connect the POSITIVE (RED) clamp from the jump starter to the POSITIVE (POS, P, +) ungrounded post of the battery. Connect the NEGATIVE (BLACK) clamp to the vehicle chassis or engine block away from the battery. Do not connect the clamp to the carburetor, fuel lines, or sheet-metal body parts. Connect to a heavy gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.
  7. For a positive-grounded vehicle, connect the NEGATIVE (BLACK)  clamp from the jump starter to the NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) ungrounded post of the battery. Connect the POSITIVE (RED) clamp to the vehicle chassis or engine block away from the battery. Do not connect the clamp to the carburetor, fuel lines, or sheet-metal body parts. Connect to a heavy gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.
  8. When finished using the jump starter, remove the clamp from the vehicle chassis and then remove the clamp from the battery terminal. Disconnect the clamps from the unit.

FAQ’s EverStart SL097 Jump Starter/Power Pack

Can a jump starter be left plugged in constantly?

Avoid engaging in this activity. It will have a negative net effect.

When a jump starter is fully charged, how do you know?

For details, consult the manufacturer’s instructions. This includes what the colours of the light indicators imply. Green denotes a charged battery, while red/orange typically signifies charging. Note: Using a portable jump starter to jump start a car is equivalent to using traditional jumper cables and a second vehicle.

Can an everstart sl097 jump pack be left to charge a battery?

Using the jump starter to gain a little charge and then starting the engine to replenish the battery without a special charger seems like an excellent idea. Sadly, this is ineffective.

How frequently does a portable jump starter need to be charged?

Recharge your portable jump starter/battery booster pack at least once every six months and after each use. If these jump starter batteries are left in the car in hot or cold temperatures, they will lose their charge more quickly. Before embarking on a lengthy journey, we advise charging your battery booster packs.

When you jump a car, what do you unplug first?

Disconnect your car’s negative cable first, then the other car’s negative cable, your car’s positive cable, and then the positive cable from the other car.

How long should your car be left idle after being jump-started?

Your automobile won’t charge as rapidly if you leave it idling. Your car should restart after 30 minutes, and each subsequent drive will keep it charged. A useful guide to jumpstarting your car is provided here.

How long does your battery need to recharge after receiving a jump start?

Keep in mind that after performing a jump start, you must keep the engine running for around 30 minutes to give the alternator enough time to fully recharge the battery.

When jumping an automobile, why don’t you connect the negative?

Never attach the black line to the dead battery’s negative (-) terminal. This is extremely risky and might cause an explosion. When jumpstarting your car, be sure to adhere to the owner’s manual’s instructions.

How long will a jump starter maintain its charge?

An excellent jump starter will always keep its charge. As a general rule, check the charge level if it has been six months since you last used it. To give you an idea, if the NOCO range is not in use, its battery power only degrades by 1% to 2% each month.

Can a running car be used to recharge a jump pack?

When attached to a moving car with jumper cables, can the jump starter be recharged? It cannot, is the response.

Is a jump start or a battery charge preferable for a car?

Because they deliver far greater amperages, jump starters can charge a car much more quickly than chargers. With an empty battery, they can quickly start an automobile. The problem is that even premium versions lack the power storage needed to fully recharge the battery.
