Ah, I see, it seems what you have is a power pack. If so it would contain a gelcell battery, probably 12 volts. If this is true, then you may charge it with any 14-16 volt wall charger. You have to make sure you observe correct voltage and correct polarity when connecting up. Also you may have to obtain and change the plug on the charger wire.
I'm assuming the battery DC output is inverted to AC and you use it to power small AC appliances.
