The Duracell Powerpack 600 features a 600 watt DC-to-AC power inverter, plus a
built-in AM/FM radio, a digital alarm clock, and built-in
sealed lead-acid battery, all in one
AC Outlets: The
Powerpack 600 has three 3-prong outlets that supply 115 V AC power for running AC
appliances. You can run several appliances if the total rating of all the
appliances does not exceed 480 W. The Powerpack can supply momentary surge
power up to 960 W.
DC Power Socket: The
DC power socket allows the Powerpack 600 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 600 to
jump-start a vehicle or boat engine that has a 12 V starting battery using the
supplied jumper cables. The Powerpack provides 280 cold-cranking amps for
starting most automotive or marine engines.
The Powerpack 600 has a built-in 5W incandescent light that will operate for
up to 50 hours when the battery is fully charged.
Digital Display: The unit has a digital display, indicating the output
power in watts and the percentage of battery charge. A push-button Display
Function switch toggles between the two readings and power off. There is also a
Charging Status light which illuminates when the unit is in charging mode.
Built-in AM/FM Radio: The radio is found on the back panel of the
inverter and powered by the internal battery. When in use, the current draw from
the radio is 30mA, allowing you to use the radio for more than a month on a
fully charged battery. When you are listening to AM radio, due to signal
interference, it is not recommended to operate an AC appliance at the same time.
For better FM reception, you can extend the telescoping 10" antenna.
Digital Alarm Clock: The unit has a digital clock that is displayed
when the radio is turned off. You can set an alarm which will automatically turn
on the radio.
The Powerpack 600 has built-in protection against output overload. If you
connect an appliance that draws more than 480 W, or one that draws excessive
surge power, the power to the AC outlet automatically shuts off.
The Powerpack 600 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 sounds an audible alarm when the internal battery
is nearly discharged (11.0 V DC), and automatically turns off when the internal battery
is discharged to 10.5 V DC.
Jump-Start Cable Safety
Feature: The Powerpack 600 comes with a user-replaceable, 250A fuse to
protect the unit and vehicle battery from damage through reverse polarity and
You can recharge the Powerpack 600 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 600 for the
First Time: Prior to operating your AC
appliance or 12 V DC appliance, you must ensure that the battery of the
Powerpack 600 is fully charged. If the battery has been fully discharged, recharging
with the AC charger may take up to 35 hours.
