The Duracell Powerpack 300 features a 300 watt DC-to-AC power
inverter, plus a 250 PSI (lb/in²). air compressor and built-in
sealed lead-acid battery, all in one
AC Outlets: The
Powerpack 300 has two 3-prong outlets that supply 120 V AC power for running AC
appliances. You can run several appliances if the total rating of all the
appliances does not exceed 240 W. The Powerpack can supply momentary surge
power up to 480 W.
DC Power Socket: The
DC power socket allows the Powerpack 300 to operate 12 V DC auto, RV, marine, and
other portable appliances that draw 12 A or less.
Jump-Starting a Vehicle's
Engine: You can use the Powerpack 300 to
jump-start a vehicle or boat engine that has a 12 V starting battery using the
supplied jumper cables. The Powerpack provides 120 cold-cranking amps for
starting all four- and most six-cylinder engines.
The Powerpack 300 has a built-in 250 PSI. air compressor for inflating tires and
small sports equipment. A sports needle adapter and two plastic nozzle adapters
are supplied for inflating sports equipment and small inflatables. An analog
pressure gauge is provided.
The Powerpack 300 cannot be used to inflate large capacity inflatables such as
float tubes, large air mattresses, and inflatable boats. These products
require extended inflating times, which may damage the compressor.
The Powerpack 300 has a detachable 4-LED flashlight that will operate for
up to 6 hours before needing to be recharged. The flashlight recharges in the
provided storage space on the side of the Powerpack. Dimensions: Length=4.6875",
The Powerpack 300 has built-in protection against output overload. If you
connect an appliance that draws more than 300 W, or one that draws excessive
surge power, the power to the AC outlet automatically shuts off.
The Powerpack 300 is protected from overheating. If the inverter exceeds a
safe temperature, power to the AC outlet automatically shuts off.
Low Battery Protection:
Low battery protection protects the internal battery from excessive discharge
and possible damage. The unit automatically turns off when the internal battery
is discharged to 10.5 V DC.
Jump-Start Cable Safety
Feature: The Powerpack 300 has a reverse polarity detection circuit to
prevent damage to the unit and/or create a sparking or explosion hazard. A Red
"Jumpstart Connection" LED illuminates and an alarm sounds when reverse polarity
has been detected. A Green LED is illuminated when the reverse polarity
situation has been corrected, indicating you may proceed to jump-start the
You can recharge the Powerpack 300 using any of the following options:
- supplied AC charger
- supplied DC charging cable
- optional generator equipped with a
regulated 12 V battery charging outlet
- optional solar panel
Using the Powerpack 300 for the
First Time: Prior to operating your AC
appliance or 12 V DC appliance, you must ensure that the battery of the
Powerpack 300 is fully charged. If the battery has been fully discharged, recharging
with the AC charger may take up to 35 hours.
