Does the plug still work at all? check the fuses listed in your owners manual. You may have just blown a fuse, other wise your plug may have a loose wire or bad connection.

Instruction mannuel for a brunton 1500 pulse charger

Ummm... There isn't one. You plug it into a USB port to charge it up, (from other powered item, I use my laptop) it takes about an hour and a half. or w/Solaris® 4 USB - 2 to 3 hours. And whatever you are going to charge with it, (usually a smart phone) you plug into the port Standard USB or micro USB and charge up the phone. Good for one charge of a phone and then it must be recharged. I watched the video on their website before I ordered one, it may or may not make it clearer for you. Pulse 1500 Brunton

My tablet will not turn on

If it will not turn on manually, plug it into the computer to see if you have communication. If it can be charge from the USB port in the Computer, let it sit 24 hours for a full charge. In some case wall chargers fail, so try another charger. If you cannot charge from the Computer ort a Wall charger, then the power cell (Battery may be at fault). Replace if you can.

Can i directly hook up the neg and positive wire to my cell battery and charge it

popped off the battery cover and noyiced the + & - signs on the battery almost lined up perfectly with the contacts on the sides
so fugurring that since the charge from USB port, figured the 5V 0.5A power source would work for the same side connectors. cut up the seperate USB cable layng around and stripped down the red (+5V) and black (Gnd ) wires.
from there bunched them up and stuffed the red one into the left contact and taped it down with electrical tape and then did the same with the black wire in the right contact. make sure to use as much wire as you can without touching the 2 wires/contacts and taped them down seperately and nice and firm.
plugged in to the computer for about 25 min and it was completely drained and nearly 1/4 full power.wait for to get it fully charged and then just bring this cable and electrical tape with you and you can charge your cell with your lap top

Make sure the wires are connected and the nuts/ screws are tight and make sure any plugs are plugged in correctly. My son had the same problem one time and he forgot replug in a plug.

My cigarette lighter won't work. Either the unit is burnt out; the fuse is blown or??? I need to fix this as I need a place to plug my cell phone/computer charging stuff. Any help is gr8!

if you don't need the lighter itself to light up cigarrettes, then get rid of the lighter and using a test light or meter, make sure there is power inside thesocket where the lighter plugs into. if power is already there, then your done and ready to go, if power is not there, then check for an open fuse in your fuse panel...some lighter go directly to the battery, in that case make sure that the wires are not broken somewhere between the lighter socket and the battery

RAV4 Charging Cell Phone Causes Fuse to Blow

have never heard of a vehicle that can't be used to charge a cell phone but if that's what the dealer said, they usually know something about the vehicles they sell. i can suggest a work around but it might be you won't like it. you can buy a 12v jumper pack, it's really just a battery in a plastic case that can be used to jump your regular 12v car battery in the event that you can't get the car started from the regular battery under the hood. they are available in a few different sizes, they have them at car parts stores and dept. stores, you plug it in at home and it charges up overnight, then take it in the car with you just in case. every one of these that i have ever seen has a 12v outlet on them. some of these are quite heavy but you don't need a big one and you probably won't need to charge it more than once or twice a week just running a cell phone charger off it. i will admit that it is not as convenient as plugging it into your car but it won't blow a fuse and i'm pretty sure it would work. hope that helps
