5. For negative-grounded vehicle, connect POSITIVE (RED) clamp from battery charger to POSITIVE
(POS, P, +) ungrounded post of battery. Connect NEGATIVE (BLACK) clamp to vehicle chassis or
engine block away from battery. Do not connect clip to carburetor, fuel lines, or sheet-metal body
parts. Connect to heavy gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.
6. For positive-grounded vehicle, connect NEGATIVE (BLACK) clamp from battery charger to
NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) ungrounded post of battery. Connect POSITIVE (RED) clamp to vehicle
chassis or engine block away from battery. Do not connect clip to carburetor, fuel lines or sheet-
metal body parts. Connect to a heavy gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.
7. When disconnecting charger, disconnect AC cord, remove clamp from vehicle chassis, and then
remove clamp from battery terminal.
8. Do not charge the battery while the engine is operating.
9. See operating instructions for length of charge information.
Follow these steps when the battery has been removed from a vehicle. A spark near
the battery may cause an explosion. To reduce risk of a spark near the battery:
1. Check polarity of battery posts. The POSITIVE post (marked POS,P, +) usually has a larger diameter
than the NEGATIVE battery post (marked NEG, N, -).
2. Attach a 24-inch (minimum length) 6 AWG insulated battery cable to the NEGATIVE battery post
(marked NEG, N, -).
3. Connect the POSITIVE (RED) battery clamp to the POSITIVE battery post (marked POS, P, + or red).
4. Stand as far back from the battery as possible, and do not face battery when making final
connection.
5. Carefully connect the NEGATIVE (BLACK) charger clamp to the free end of the battery cable
connected to the NEGATIVE terminal.
6. Set the charge rate to appropriate setting according to battery size.
7. When disconnecting charger, always do so in reverse sequence of connecting procedure and break
first connection while as far away from battery as practical.
Note:
A marine (boat) battery must be removed and charged on shore. To charge it
on board requires equipment specially designed for marine use. This unit is
NOT designed for such use.

Stage One - Rapid Start Charge at 40 amps delivers maximum charging
amperage to "wake up" any serviceable 12 volt battery and allows for quick engine
starting in just 5 minutes (based on a midsize vehicle battery at 50% charge level).
When battery reaches a maximum safe predetermined voltage, the charger will
automatically signal a "beep" and move into Stage 2 of the charging process.
