PREPARING THE UNIT FOR FIRST USE
This unit is delivered in a partially charged state – you must fully charge this unit before using its internal backup power for the
first time. Initial AC charge should be for 24 hours. Subsequent charges should be for 8 hours. Follow the directions in the
following section.
CHARGING/RECHARGING THE UNIT
For maximum battery life, we recommend the unit be kept fully charged at all times. If the battery is allowed to remain in a
discharged state, battery life will be shortened.
• FULLY CHARGE THE UNIT BY PLUGGING IT INTO A STANDARD NORTH AMERICAN 120 VOLT OUTLET AND PRESSING THE
MAIN POWER PUSHBUTTON TO TURN THE UNIT "ON."
The LCD display will show "CHARGING" if there is no load connected to the AC outlets and " FULLY CHARGED" when battery is
full, if there is load connected to the AC outlet you can also monitor the charging progress by referring to the battery icon (see
next section).
• Recharge the unit fully after each use.
• Recharge the unit every two months when it has not been used regularly.
Notes: Recharging the battery after each use prolongs battery life; frequent discharges between recharges reduces battery life.
The unit cannot be overcharged.
Viewing Battery Charge Status
Battery Status Icon (see illustration) is located on the LCD DIsplay. When the full
icon displays, the unit is fully charged. As power is used, the Icon displays partially
(fading from right to left), similar to the charge bars on a cell phone. This Icon will
blink while the unit is charging, and display completely once again when the
unit is returned to full charge.

LCD DISPLAY
The LCD Display should be on continuously when the unit is turned ON and either connected to a power source or charged and
operating as a power backup.
The LCD Display shows battery charge level, battery voltage, wattage in use and wattage available. It also automatically displays any
fault conditions that may occur (refer to the "Troubleshooting" section for more information).
AC Icon
The LCD Display also shows when the unit is turned ON and operating on its
internal battery. The AC Icon (see illustration) will show when the unit is connected
to a functioning 120 volt AC power source . If the AC Icon does not display, the
unit is either disconnected from a power source or a power outage has occurred
and any appliances plugged into the unit are operating on the unit's internal battery.
USING THE 120 VOLT AC POWER SUPPLY
AC Power Supply Controls, Indicators and Operation
The ON/OFF Pushbutton turns the unit ON and OFF. It can also be used to reset power after shutdown due to overvoltage,
overload or short-circuit condition.
1. Press the ON/OFF Switch to turn the unit ON. "ELECTROMATE 500" will scroll across the LCD Display.
2. Plug the 110/120 volt AC appliance into one of the unit's 120 Volt AC Outlets and operate normally.
3. Monitor power usage to assure that you don't overload the unit. Ensure that the wattage of all equipment simultaneously
plugged into the unit's 120 Volt AC Outlets does not exceed 500 watts continuous.
Note: This unit's 120 Volt AC Outlets will not operate appliances and equipment that generate heat, such as hair dryers, electric
blankets, microwave ovens and toasters.
USING THE USB CHARGING PORTS
USB Power Supply Controls, Indicators and Operation
The ON/OFF Pushbutton turns the unit ON and OFF. It can also be used to reset power after shutdown due to overvoltage,
overload or short-circuit condition.
1. Plug the USB device into one of the unit's USB Ports and operate normally.
2. Monitor power usage to assure that you don't overload the unit.
Note: This unit's USB Charging Ports do not support data communication. They only provide 5 volts/500mA DC power (max)
to external USB-powered devices.
MONITORING POWER USAGE
1. While the unit is initially turned ON, the wattage in use will show on the LCD Display for approximately 3 seconds (for
example, if you have plugged in an appliance that draws 200 watts, "200 WAT" will show). After 3 seconds, the wattage in
use followed by the remaining wattage available will scroll (for example, "100 WATT IN USE, 400 WATT AVAILABLE").
2. Pressing the Display Button shows the voltage in use (for example, "110 VOLT AC").
3. Pressing the Display Button a second time shows the unit's Battery Voltage. Monitoring battery voltage is useful for
determing when to recharge the unit to avoid a Low Battery Fault shutdown.
Make sure the 120 Volt AC Power Supply is turned OFF when the unit is being stored.
The standard North American 120 volt AC and USB outlets allow simultaneous operation of multiple devices. Simply plug the
equipment into the unit and operate normally. Ensure that the wattage of all equipment simultaneously plugged into the
BPS500B does not exceed 500 watts continuous.
Notes: The power supply shuts down automatically when a fault condition such as an overload, overheating or short circuiting or
battery level drop has occurred. Refer to the "Troubleshooting" section for a list of fault conditions and suggested
remedies.
USING THE BACKUP POWER FEATURE
The unit's six 120 Volt AC Outlets are permanently backed up by the internal battery. During a power outage or other utility
problem (such as brownouts and over-voltages), the unit will keep running the connected products for up to 8 hours, depending
on the power draw of the appliances. When utility power is restored, the unit automatically reverts to AC home power and
Charging/Recharging Mode.
Note: When connected to utility power, the unit automatically provides AC power from its internal battery in the event that
utility voltage falls outside the 105–135 volt AC range.
