This is known as “resting voltage.” When the engine is running, battery voltage will typically rise to 13.5 to 14.5 volts.

Where is the reset button on a generator?

Typically as a general rule 24 – 48 hours immediately after purchase and after every use. It is also recommended to recharge every 30 – 60 days for approximately 12 hours or until the battery status indicators show full when the product is not in use.

How do you know when a jump starter is fully charged?

Usually an indicator light on the jump starter tells you when a recharge is necessary. Simply insert the power adapter into an outlet and charge the battery until the light indicates a complete charge.

What does 1000 peak amps mean?

Generally speaking, a jump starter with a higher peak amp rating is more powerful than one with a lower peak amp rating. Peak amps typically ranger from 300 to 1000 amps with some very powerful ones exceptionally reaching over 3000 amp.
