115 Volt AC Output
CAUTION — 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.
• If there is any sign that your appliance is behaving differently to that when connected to the normal power source
then unplug and seek advice from your appliance manufacturer.
• 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.

Soft Start Technology
®
Black & Decker's Soft Start Technology gradually "ramps up" the inverters power to slowly start appliances that require
a surge to get started. This gradual ramp up protects the inverter and the appliance, as well as the power source, from
damage and failure.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The Power/Fault LED Indicator lights green when the Inverter is properly connected to a functioning DC power
source. The AC and USB outlets are ready to use. (If the Power/Fault LED Indicator lights red, refer to the
Troubleshooting Section of this Instruction Manual.)
To turn the unit off, disconnect it from the 12 volt DC power source.
Always connect the inverter to the 12 volt DC power source before plugging any devices into the unit.
The standard North American 115 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 inverter does not exceed 100 watts continuous.
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 100 watts. If
the power consumption is rated in amps AC, simply multiply by the AC volts (115) 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.
For safety reasons, the unit will simply shut down if it is overloaded. To restart the unit, simply remove the load, wait
a few minutes, then plug it back in, rotating slightly to make sure there is good contact.
Operation of the 115 Volt AC Outlet
1. Connect the unit to a vehicle's accessory outlet or other 12 volt DC power source. Make sure there is adequate
space for proper ventilation of the inverter.
2. Rotate the unit slightly to make sure there is good contact.
3. The Power/Fault LED Indicator will light green, indicating a proper connection. If the Power/Fault LED Indicator
lights red, a Fault condition exists. Refer to the Troubleshooting Section of this Instruction Manual.
4. If the Inverter does not work, make sure the ignition/accessory outlet is powering the accessory outlet. Some
vehicles require the ignition switch to be turned on.
5. Plug the (110/120 volt AC) appliance into the Inverter's three-prong AC outlet and operate normally.
Notes:The Inverter will not operate appliances and equipment that generate heat, such as hair dryers, electric blan-
kets, microwave ovens and toasters.
Remember to disconnect the unit from any power source when it is not in use.
Operation of the USB Charging Port
1. Connect the unit to a vehicle's accessory outlet or other 12 volt DC power source. Make sure there is adequate
space for proper ventilation of the inverter.
2. Rotate the unit slightly to make sure there is good contact.
3. The Power/Fault LED Indicator will light green, indicating a proper connection. If the Power/Fault LED Indicator
lights red, a Fault condition exists. Refer to the Troubleshooting Section of this Instruction Manual.
4. If the Inverter does not work, make sure the ignition/accessory outlet is powering the accessory outlet. Some
vehicles require the ignition switch to be turned on.
5. Plug the USB-powered device into the inverter's USB Charging Port and operate normally.
Notes:This inverter's USB Charging Port does not support data communication. It only provides 5 volts DC/500 mA
(5 volts DC/200 mA when combined with inverter AC output over 90W) power to an external USB-powered
device.
Remember to disconnect the unit from any power source when it is not in use.
Protective Features
The inverter monitors the following conditions:
Low Battery Voltage — This condition is not harmful to the inverter, but could damage the power source, so the
inverter will automatically shut down when input voltage drops below 10.5 ± 0.3 volts DC. Once the voltage recovers
the inverter will auto restart.
Input Voltage Too High — The inverter will automatically shut down when DC input voltage exceeds 15.5 ± 0.3
volts, as this can harm the unit. Once the voltage recovers the inverter will auto restart.
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 a short circuit occurs.
Notes:The Power/Fault LED Indicator will light red to indicate a Fault condition before automatic shutdown occurs.
If unit shuts down, disconnect it from the 12 volt DC power source, remove the load, wait a few minutes, then
plug it back in, rotating slightly to make sure there is good contact.
Operating Tips
The inverter should only be operated in locations that are:
DRY — Do not allow water or other liquids to come into contact with the inverter.
COOL — Surrounding air temperature should ideally be 10-20°C (50-68°F). Keep the inverter away from direct sun-
light, when possible.
WELL-VENTILATED — Keep the area surrounding the inverter clear to ensure free air circulation around the unit. Do
not place items on or over the inverter during operation. The unit will shut down if the internal temperature gets too
hot. The inverter will auto-reset after it cools down.
SAFE — Do not use the inverter near flammable materials or in any locations that may accumulate flammable fumes
or gases. This is an electrical appliance that can briefly spark when electrical connections are made or broken.
Important:
During engine cranking the voltage will drop below 10.5V and therefore shutdown the inverter. To reset the unit, dis-
connect it from the 12 volt DC power source, leave for a few seconds and then plug it back in once the engine has
started.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Storage
1. Ideal storage temperature range is 0-40°C (32-104°F).
2. Store and use the inverter in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation for all-around air circulation.
3. Avoid locations that are exposed to heating units, radiators, direct sunlight, or excessive humidity or dampness.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Common Audio Problems
Problem
Explanation/Recommendation
Buzzing sound in audio sys-
Some inexpensive stereo systems and boom boxes make a buzzing sound
tems
when operated from the inverter, because the power supply in the electronic
device does not properly filter the modified sine wave produced by the
inverter. The only solution to this problem is to use a sound system that has a
higher quality power supply.
Common Power Output Problems
Possible Cause
Recommendation
Battery voltage below 10.5
Recharge battery or check DC power supply.

condition
load is no more than 100 watts for continuous operation.
AC output is shorted
Unplug the AC appliance. Disconnect the unit from any 12 volt DC power
source. Check the appliance cord. Refer to the Service Information section
that follows to contact a Black & Decker Service Center.
Power/Fault LED Indicator Lights Red
When the Power/Fault LED Indicator turns from green (indicating the unit is powered) to red, a fault condition is pre-
sent and the unit will automatically shut down. See the Protective Features Section of this Instruction Manual and
Common Power Output Problems in the following section.
