Battery not Accepting a Charge
• Make sure that the charger is plugged into a "live" 110/120 volt AC outlet and Power LED is lit.
• Unplug the charger and check battery connections - ensure that there is a good connection at the battery
terminal and/or vehicle chassis.
• Check that the correct charge rate was selected for the battery being charged.
• Ensure enough charging time was allowed to charge battery.
Charging a Very Cold Battery
If the battery to be charged is extremely cold (in temperatures below freezing – 0ºC/32ºF), it cannot accept a
high rate of charge, so the initial charge rate will be slow. The rate of charge will increase as the battery
warms. Never attempt to charge a frozen battery.

corrosion of the copper clamps.
